My garage ceiling is about 20 feet high, and Ive been planning on building a mezzanine so that I can use the wasted space up there. Sometime soon I will actually get around to it.

 :clap: I’m jealous.
I always say that when we bought our house I wanted nothing bigger than what we(me, wife and daughter) were needed, low maintenance and a garage for bikes.
We ended up with a 5 bed 2-1/2 bath 2500 sf, 120 year old house with a 6x8 shed.

I’ve since upgraded to an 8x12 shed. Ha!

Thanks for posting those photos; my wife can now see that my paltry hoard (herd?) is actually quite reasonable!

finally got he shed built, which allowed me to get the yard stuff relocated, making room 'where it counts'. still need to bring a few bikes home,  but this is how it currently sits.

shed for the yard junk. still needs staining/paint and ramp. Bah. Built it all myself. I hate carpentry. 8x12.












thanks to the members on here that suggested the LED strips and the overhead bins.  :patriot: :clap: :cheerleader: those were a huge help, and i get more people that come over asking about the bins than anything non bike related.

Nice! I hate carpentry, too. That's why I bought a Mennonite-built barn delivered and set up for the wife's Kawasaki Mule and garden gear, and paid a guy to build an 8' extension to one side for the garden tractors and other stuff.

Our garage is so small that it barely holds two GoldWings and and RD400c.

the reason i built mine was because i wanted it done the way I wanted. everything was put together with 2 or 3" coated deck screws, vapor barrier under the floor, etc. I drilled each hole prior to putting in the screws, and used 2 per beam vs the 1 nail they recommended.  same with the floor, and roof. except the trim pieces which have finishing nails.  also poured concrete footers then used the piers on top of that, will stay level .

last shed i had built i had to re-shim it to level about 5 yrs in and nails were always squeezing their way out.  still, i did the whole thing, effectively, and mostly single handed, in about 40-45 hours + 10 for the concrete and sub frame.   cash wise i'm in about 2200 total.
