Stainless Steel Garage Anyone?

I was watching something on TV the other day and they showed a garage that I would call the ultimate man’s garage.  It was filled with awesome cabinets, long work benches and more tools then you could imagine.  The type of garage that I might possibly sell my kids to have, LOL.  Well maybe I wouldn’t go that far but it has been a dream of mine for a long time to have the ultimate man’s garage.

During the summer months I spend a good amount of time outside and in the garage doing different odds and ends and projects.  Currently I have an ok set up but it would be awesome if one day I was able to take it to the next level.  What I mean is maybe some nice stainless steel cabinets throughout the garage instead of $30 metal  shelving units from Home Depot.  I also would love a really nice workbench maybe 12-15 foot long so that I would have a nice space to not only work on different projects but a place to store my things.  Some new cabinet style tool boxes would be awesome because my current tool boxes are overflowing at the moment.  It is crazy how many tools I have accumulated over the years without even realizing it.  A lot of them I have purchased but some I have mean a lot to me because they came from my grandfather and using the same tools he used to me is just awesome.

My current garage would need so much work to make is just right.  I would have to start by looking at new steel garage doors to replace my current because why make the inside look so nice if the outside still looks like crap.  After I replace the garage door I would need to move inside and replace just about everything in order to have it just like I would want it.  Also, let’s not forget that a new garage takes times and money which I have neither of, LOL.

I am sure some day I will have the ultimate man’s garage but for now I need to make my current setup work which it has been for over ten years but man would it be nice to have a new set up.

I Disclose

  1. I hope you get your dream garage one day! My fiancee & his dad built a cabinet earlier this year for ours but it could use a lot more storage.

    Wow! I’m thinking about how I could get my kitchen to look like that garage! Joking aside—I completely agree that having a garage/work space is just as important as the other parts of the home.

  3. WOW! Rob, it’s so organized, too! My husband would probably like that one!

  4. Aww man there’s a brand at Sears that has the coolest garage cabinet set up. I forget what it’s called but it’s MY dream to have my garage decked out in it. Jon could care less about tools and workspace.

  5. OH man , i could so picture that! I am not a man but that would look great and would match my kitchen!

    • LOL, I like how you would want to match your kitchen to match your garage. Not a bad idea BTW :-)

  6. Wow, I couldn’t imagine. That does look pretty spiffy, huh? I miss having a garage in general!

  7. I’ve learned that every garage is a work in progress no matter how perfect you might think it is! I know what you mean about those slick looking diamond plate cabinets and workbenches. They are on my list too. What are your thoughts on a good garage floor covering like interlocking tiles or maybe epoxy?
