I recently finished with a summer sales job out in Indiana and moved back home to good ‘ole Az! My wife and I were planning on buying a house this year and capitalizing on the tax credit thing. The 2 car garage was going to serve as my workshop to start building cabinets and furniture part time while I go back to school… But as things often do, plans changed. We decided that while owning our own home would be nice it just isnt the right time for us now. So, we are renting a little 2 bedroom condo with no garage to save our $$ for my tuition and become a little more financially stable…
Now if the story ended right now you would probably think, “Man! That sucks for him…!”. Fortunately, we now live less than 10 minutes away from my parents house which means that we also live less than 10 minutes away from their garage! As you will see from the pictures there is a lot of work to do to make it a functional shop but it has some really good potential. It is a 3 1/2 car garage that has really been used as a storage unit for all of the random crap that always seems to accumulate.
I’m on a pretty tight budget but luckily my parents are so excited that I am cleaning out their garage that they have hired me to do the work to finish the walls and get it set up as a useable space. My dad is also interested in getting back into woodworking and has agreed to go in on some tools with me.
Here’s a little video to show you what we’re starting with:
