    I can pull the Tundra in...with 14ft to spare. Can literally 3 point turn the wife's WRX inside...go in one door, out the other.

    It has a killer old wood stove and is set for a furnace (oil tank). Don't think I'll go the oil heat route, as I have more wood on the property than I can ever use or harvest.

    I need ideas!!

    That's a garage with a lot of potential! As a builder here is what I would do with your garage.

    1. Temporarily drop the ceiling fluorescent lights, the ceiling garage door tracks & garage door openers.
    2. Install either 5/8" drywall or 7/16" plywood on the ceiling to cover the insualtion.
    3. Build either a storage closet or shelves below the stairs.
    4. Power wash the concrete floors.
    5. Cover the floors with painters plastic.
    6. Paint the walls and ceilings
    7. Reinstall the ceiling lights and ceiling garage door hardware.
    8. Remove everything out of the garage and install an epoxy floor.
    9. Install Gladiator storage units on the walls and floor for storage.

    If you want to run additional electrical, pressure air lines, or water do that before you cover the ceiling or walls back up. I know this would take a good amount of work and money though. But we can all dream right.

    My first thought...you will quickly run out of room. I could pull in 10 cars in my shop...now no way.
    Wood stoves smell..do you want everything smelling like smoke?
    Congrats! No matter what you do it's awesome to have your own shop.

    Ah yes!! This is what I'm talking about!

    Dry wall ceilings already on list. Previous owner had about 5-6 sheets hanging around the basement. It'll be put to use.

    My kegerator and deep freeze/lagering cooler will be there as well. This will be the partial brew room. This would assume I'm keeping it heated 24/7, otherwise the keg/cooler go in the unfinished part of the basement and I can just brew out there in the garage.

    I want clean, and easy to maintain. The squirrels have taken hold lately...they have buried their nuts everywhere (giggity)

    Storage is a must, I like the understair suggestion.

    Too many ways this could go. Compressed air would be baller.

    I don't like you right meow.

    The price you paid for that home/land/shop makes me dislike you even more. ;)

    Needs a bar, chairs, projection TV, and you would have the ultimate tailgating shop. These other guys have already recommended what I would have.

    All jokes aside, you have a great place, and I hope you have found your own little slice of heaven.
