Man cave
« on: 18.04. 2014 15:17 »
If the photo upload works you should see my new man cave. We moved in January to a house without a garage. My Beeza has been in storage since December. When I've finished making shelves etc. I'll bring the bike here and be able to ride her again.

The photo didn't come through so I imagine your converting the laundry and putting the washing machine etc in the yard.

You lucky bugga pato. Where's the beeza? Mine's a single car (3 bike) garage plus a little overflow for bits.

ENVY!!!!
I use a homebuilt garden shed - and I can fit a lift with my GF on, and myself in there - and that pretty much it - and if I try expanding it, the local Council tells me I'm not allowed to build more on my grounds.... *sad2*

Ha, yes Brian. If anything rolls down it ends in the creek. The brown snakes keep pickers at bay.
 Bikes have to be going under their own power in the shed. Nobody can push them up the driveway. I tried to drive the ute down, had to get a 4X4 to toe me out.
Cheers.
PS are you waiting, to show us all up?

No I wont be showing anybody up. I would like to have a nice area to sit with chairs etc but I have too many blasted motorbikes cluttering up the place.

I have a 9m x 6m (30' x 20') shed which sounds big enough but between 2 bike benches, normal benches, shelves, lathes, mills and 15 bikes there is not much spare room.

I'll take some photos tomorrow and post.

I do however live on a nice flat block so can wheel bikes in and out no problems.

I'm with Bill, Brian. For a couple of beers we'll clear the lot. Get you some room for the kid's pushbikes or the wife's car.....

Even a waterbottle for cold nights.
But I think our old mate over west will top everyone.

The bottle keeps you warm and also keeps the mossies away  *????*

I've had four of them, rode the first one around Australia in 1975.

Time we had some more from UK but we are a small crowded Island so have to be more compact so my Bijou compact and 2 outrigger stores and a jaundiced view from our back garden

Bill,

That's a very tidy shop. I might come around to it, but, for now, too self conscious to show my garage to any neat freaks (said with respect). One thing you might want to do is add some storage on that bare wall to the right of the bike, maybe a shelf.>:D

Also, love the view from your garden, mine is not quite so open.
