    I'm solo. But I want to build a garage to house all my mowers Atv's and tools. I got to thinking about an idea of making the side of the garage long enough so at the end of the day, I could back both the trailer and the pick-up under cover. Anybody want to share photos or ideas for a garage, I'd love to see em!

    i don't have one, i either work in the driveway or in the auto shop at my job if i need a lift or whatnot. that being said, bigger is better. even if you were to build a 100' x 100' shop, eventually you will fill it up.

    I agree. Even if I get out of this business, space is always at a premium.

    I use our double car garage for changing blades and some repairs. I use my 100x50 barn for equipment storage and parts. I use 400 or 500 hundred feet of my fence line for outdoor storage of stuff we have for sale and no room in the barn for. I have 10 acres total. Some might say we have too much equipment, I say mine your own business.
    I also use the shops at my day job. One is 40 x40 with double doors and a overhead crane the other is 120x120 with a pit and a wash bay. It's nice to have available in the winter.
