    Finally remembered Here's mine,a work in progress (though I don't know for sure yet whether to finish setting this up as my workshop or whether I'm actually gonna build a bit bigger,nice-than-this-tin-can shed just for that purpose...depends on if I can convince her NOT to want to sell and move,now that here is 5 years from being paid for,LOL!).

    Needs a workbench,but it' already snug...






    (Besides tearing it down...) Any idears/suggestions?

    Insulation! That thing is gonna be like an oven in the summer and like a freezer in the winter. You won't even want to step in there just to get your bike. I'd suggest getting on craigslist and finding a cheap or free window a/c unit and using that in the summer, and a couple ceramic heaters in the winter.

    I could possily do some insulating on it...but it's a single-layer (read,cheap) tin shed,not much way of A/C or heating it much...and it just got a bit fuller. I sold the Redline today,picking up a Bandersnatch tomorrow-to park alongside of the new Jabberwockey-and scored a sweet deal from the coolest of LBS owners today on this...



    ...so 3 bikes (+ the Dawes and the kiddo's bikes) instead of two. Also,I measured it out (inside wall-wall) at 10'x12.5'...there just ain't enough room to set it up the way I wanna . I'm thinking,Mama's Mini-Mopar (Dodge Neon,LMBO! ) will be paid off in just a few months,maybe have a new workshop built "on my site" soon after with a small down payment,and same-sized-as-the-car-payment-payment on one around 12'x20' or so,isulated,and wired for electrics....but I'd have to convince her

    1) Hang your bikes by a wheel on your left wall. (make a rack to do this out of wood or what ever) it will go about 1 ft from front wall. Put some pegs on it for your trunk rack so that it sits between the front wall and the bike rack
    2) hang mtb tires on back wall near the ceiling on a thick dowel (1 inch?)
    3) take car tires out for time being
    4) put workbench along right wall, fold up stand and pull it out when needed otherwise tuck it near the front between the front wall and work bench which should be ~4 inch from front wall ( i would recommend a 36 inch deep bench and about 5 ft long for your space)
    5) all of your tools can now go underneath your workbench
    6) along that back wall: put those rubbermaid tubs you have the car tires in what ever way you want but i reccomend as small of a pile as possible in the back left corner.
    7) take that black rack you have put that in the back right corner
    8) fishing poles: put a small rack to go above your work bench to store them horizontally.
    9) kids bikes: this could be a bit tricky but they should fit between the rubbermaid tubs and the black shelving unit along that back wall

    am i forgetting anything? oh wait lawn chairs alon gthe back in front of kiddie bike and tubs.

    I think thats is everything

    Note that was all eyed out it may not fit that way but should be close....I think

    Good luck

    DUDE!!! Brilliant! It may not all fit/work,but those are some awesome thoughts I hadn't (had)

    The truck tires,though,will be there a little longer (until I do enough burnouts to wear the rear pair down and she lets me have em mounted ),as I have no other lockable/safe place for em,but the two Rubbermaid-like tubs are now moved out. I'm not sure the 29"ers would fit on the left wall,it'll be close,but I hadn't thought of that,I'll measure tomorrow,if not,maybe put a bench there,hang the bikes in the back...

    I've been researching local "we build on your site" workshop/shed builders these last couple weeks...might be in budget once her car's paid off in a few months,but there's a new problem with investing in a new one...she's been wanting to sell and move out of here-oh,since we moved in ( ),but there was an incident and news today that fueled her fire for doing just that today,so yeah,(one,I feel dumb for not seeing some of those tips myself,and two...) I might be just using this one for this year/till we sell/move,whichever comes to pass.

    Sorry,long-winded,that's the trucker part of me talking,LOL! Thanks (bunches!) for the tips

    My shop is still a work in progress. The wife and I just bought a townhouse and moved in last November. I've been slowly building this small 12x12 section of our basement ever since. I just started building the shelf unit yesterday and ran out of screws. Gotta run to HD after work so I can finish it and the shelf under the bench. Still working on my tool collection also. I am very happy with it so far.

    I think my "Build a New Workshop" budget got blown today...picked up another S-truck to play with (I already cruise a lowered '96 S10 extended cab). I was planning to buy it,pull the steel cowl hood,wheels,better drop kit and such from the new one to swap onto my Dime then resell it for about the same moneys (it was a bit under market average),but it turned out much nicer than we'd expected,and the unexpected happened,SHE wants to keep it,LOL!

    No new shed,but at least I got a new bike hauler,LOL!

    Here's my shop

    MTBR says I haven't posted in a while, and since I always do what I'm told...my studio as I like to call it.

    ...just added the clocks.

    That's one of the heavier duty park tool stands with a clamp that would be found in local bike shops across the globe.

    http://www.cambriabike.com/shopexd.asp?ID=54694

    I have the PRS-5 which is a home 'stand' with the pro 'head'

    The shop duty clamps are superior to anything else out there.

    I have a set of those Spinergy wheels for my 1994 Trek 2200. They were/are great wheels. One of these days I'm going to overhaul and detail the bike and take it out for a group ride.

    This is all I have to work with right now. I take over the living room when I need to do some maintenance or repairs. Hopefully, I'll be able to purchase a small building to put in the back yard in the next couple of years for a more proper work shop.

    Cool Shops. The tire mirror came from Ikea.
