    All my work is done in the great outdoors also. I also use a homemade repair stand.

    In my room that has too much bike stuff since I don't have a tool drawer, I also work in my little shed or out in the open.


    Wished I had a garage and some of this stuff gone to be able to actually work in this shed.

    Nice looking shops posted here, but here's a taste of reality:


    I'll post up a squared away version if I ever have time between projects

    @garagegoon your shop hardly looks big enough to fit a bike. I assume you have to stand on the covered porch while working on them :lol:

    Mine's hard to capture in a pic or two, since the room is kinda small and I can't get close enough to any wall to get a decent wide angle shot. So I'll have to do it in a few.

    I had a really, really nice basement, but then my two teenage sons discovered it.

    My basement is only under the front half of the house, since the original crawlspace is only inside the original foundation. Over the past 150 years, though, the house has been added on to multiple times, and none of the additions included added basement. Since it originally only had a crawl space, it never had a proper interior entrance or stairs. There's a trap door in the floor of one of the closets (so I can't easily carry a bike down there that way). There is a set of exterior bilco doors though.

    The crawlspace was dug down twice, resulting in my outside basement door being 8" above the floor and walls that are layed-up stone on top, with poured concrete on the bottom. But that makes the shelf that runs all the way around the room, which I was able to set my pegboard frame onto. It also proved to be a handy height to match with my work bench, so it effectively increases the bench space. But I loose about a quarter of the total space to the furnace and two hot water tanks. So, I've been working hard to try to use the space as efficiently as possible...

    My little quiet place it's almost a two car garage a couple hundred feet away from the main house.. The wifey has graciously let me have as man land as she calls it.... I can make as much racket as I want out there and not disturb the fam with my music and grinding. :mrgreen:

    This is where it all happens... in the driveway! :shock: The weather is nice in AZ. I spent the day today right where you are looking... high of 107 degrees. :D Oh, and what is this thing you call a "basement"? :?
