These are pretty good. It doesn't have to be a garage, it can be a driveway, carport, or cover, whatever.

I hate the classifieds.

Had to re-frame the back wall of my garage moving the lower portion on the wall in the trucks stall back a couple inches even still I only have about an inch to spare when I close the garage door. I built a bumper pad into the reworked wall, I roll up to it till I bump it and set the parking brake. Only once has the truck rolled on me to where my garage door got hung up on my rear bumper, fortunately no damage.

When I built my house, I built my garage "around my truck". Told the builder to grab all four corners and pull it out big enough to fit both my truck and the wife's car.

But who are we kidding here? Can we ever have a big enough garage?

You got that right! There is no such thing as a garage that IS big enough!

I built a 28' x 42' 3 car garage, then a 24' x 24' pole barn, then I extended the 24' x24' pole barn to 24' x 30'! Right now my truck's sitting outside because My boys and I have the garage full of cars getting rebuilt and prepped for painting.

Spring cruisin' and show time is near!

Wouldn't trade that time with the boys for the biggest garage in Texas!

And I originally built my shop up front to put my trailer in for the winter. It doesn't fit anymore

I drilled a couple of small holes in the concrete and put in some plastic wall anchors. Then I screwed a small 2x4 to the floor so when my rear tire hits it, I know when to stop.
