MY DREAM MOTORCYCLE GARAGE

Im trying to find the right design to build my new Garage. I have five acres to build on so think big and realistic. Im trying to do all for under $60,000.

I have looked at a bunch of pics on google but still can't decide. Its going to be warehouse big so I need some ideas. Half will be for my bikes and the other for my trucks and cars.

I need some good Ideas. this will be strictly garage. The only thing none garage area will be a small carpet area for couches and entertainment, tv pool table or ping pong table.

Enlighten me please.

Standard corrugated tin barn, insulated with tin on both sides so you can hang everything, tool box, work tables taking a corner of the garage. Then instead of just a carpeted area maybe a separate room built in so if someone is working on something you can close yourself off, you can also store stuff on top of the room. Large air compressor to run air tools as well. Motorcycle lifts and a car lift as well.

whatever you do, make sure it has a full bathroom w/stand-up shower. makes for quick and easy post work cleanup. second level for storage, radiant heat in the floor (supposedly more efficient than a traditional heater for large open spaces). a motorcycle lift and 2 post car lift. you can never have too much lighting. get a good high quality concrete covering, something chemical and slip resistant.

for other ideas check out www.garagejournal.com

closing off the entertainment area sounds like a good idea. also do you plan on getting a/c for the whole thing?

Seriously build a room within the barn with a window unit for A/c and the rest of the shop can use big fans

Because the house has shower I may just put a toilet.

The entertainment room is just to chill in the garage. The real entertainment room is in the house

My Idea for the grudge is to have it all open space. no walls. The reason is because in my mind, there would be nothing better than chill watch a movie or play games an just look behind and glance at the rides.

How many times do you go and open the garage door in your house just to take a peek at your bike. I do it a thousand times. I have to pinch myself so I know its real. Know wut I mean vern

My garage build is documented on that site. It is under the title of budget garage.

Two story with lift and full entertainment room upstairs with MIL quarters (incl full bath). It turned out nice and cost less than $20K all in a master planned community.
