    What do you love about your garage?

    Wife and I starting to look at houses. Garage is a big part of it for me.

    Heated?
    Extra bay for tools?
    Garage door on each side to pull thru?
    Finished, unfinished?
    Extra tall ceilings?
    Lighting options?
    Facing south for sun?
    Special flooring?
    Hydraulic, in-floor jack?

    What do you love about your garage?
    What do you hate about your garage?

    Pics encouraged as always!

    It was either a 3rd bay for me or an office for the wife. Guess who won...

    Wow. That looks amazing. I need to win the lottery for that to happen.

    I have a little one car, attached garage on my house. Nothing special.... but for the most part, I love it. Sure, I would love a huge shop with all the tools I could imagine, big lift, etc. But that'll come in time. I do like that it's built into the ground so it stays cool down there in the summer While it's not "heated", the heat radiates through the wall to my basement (I have an older house) and it stays about 40-50 degrees at the coldest in the winter.

    Mostly nothing since I don't get to use it, one side has the wife's jeep and the other side as the daughters mustang which she doesn't have room for at her house.

    Heated? Absoultely!
    Extra bay for tools? Mine are at the front wall - see below about what I hate about my garage.
    Garage door on each side to pull thru? Eh, that luxury item for me
    Finished, unfinished? finished - can't hang girly posters on unfinished walls as easily. Plus you can insulate the walls if you finish them
    Extra tall ceilings? YES. That way you can install a hoist.
    Lighting options? I use 4' LED Shop lights from Costco. Screw fluorescent lights - these are the bomb.
    Facing south for sun? never paid attention when I built it but mine faces West. Lucked out because I don't get weather blowing directly at the doors that way
    Special flooring? concrete.
    Hydraulic, in-floor jack? Nah, see above - extra tall ceilings

    What do you love about your garage? Its separate from the house. Plus it's all mine
    What do you hate about your garage? Wish it was bigger. I built it 24 x 36. Wish it was at least 24 x 40 - need just a little more room for tools.

    Filled in above

    The wife and I are house hunting as well. Told her all I care about is a 3 car garage or shop. Everything else she can pick out.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
