A website about how I set up my old, small, two-car garage for metal fabrication, carpentry and automotive work.

The Shed


Work surfaces.  Storage cabinets.  Tools.  In a perfect world, that’s all you’d keep in a garage.  In reality, a lot of other things end up out here -- from holiday decorations to lawn tools to bicycles and exercise equipment.  So the first solution (if you’ve got the room) is a shed.  In my case, there was some space along the driveway that leads to my garage.  I built a shed to fit there.  The design was pretty quick and dirty. I took a sheet of graph paper and drew out the available space I had.  I used a couple of plates from the kitchen to make the curves for the two roofs.   I got started building it later that day.
