We have removed the word garage from our household vocabulary list… it is now “The Shop”

I am extremely lucky to have a bride who is my biggest fan and supporter. She was in no way thrilled about loosing the warm garage for her car, but totally understands why the room is needed. We are planning on selling the home in roughly 5 years or so and with this slight inconvenience for her it has insured me a “legit” shop upon our next home purchase…. “Double Score!!!!”

My word of advice is get her involved in what you do, why you need the space, and what you plan on doing in it. i found the better the communication the better the understanding. Just something I have grown to learn over the years.

Until then I did see a killer fully mobile shop on Fine Woodworking. If you have a subscription (they have temporary ones you can try the site out with) go check out the videos.. Then workshop... Then shop tours... Then look for ”Two Cars & A Workbench” (this link will get you close Two Cars & A Workbench )
Very helpful ideas there…

Hope this helps and good luck!
