If you do not have one in your garage, I guess its time for you to have one to make the most of it. You can either buy one in hardware and specialty stores or build one yourself. Before you one or made one for yourself, be sure to plan things first on what size or what features you want your workbench to have. Do you want to have a portable workbench? Do you want to have one with enclosure and cabinets? Answers to these questions matter because it is where you based your specifications when buying or when constructing your own workbench.
Parking Guide: It’s not uncommon to find an assortment of parking scratches and bruises in residential garages. One of the most popular remedies is the old tennis ball on a string hanging from the ceiling trick. This is a time tested remedy that works, but there are also modern solutions as well. Enter laser and proximity parking guides. Laser guides typically attach to the ceiling on or near the garage door opener. When the door is opened, the laser is activated and lights up a beam. All you have to do is line up the beam to a particular spot on your dashboard when your vehicle is already parked. Then, each time you pull in, let the preset beam show you where to stop. You can get just a single laser or a dual-laser depending on the needs of your garage. Proximity sensors, unlike lasers, mount on the wall you approach when you park in your garage. With these, you simply preset the distance between your bumper and the sensor. Then, as you approach, the sensor will tell you when to stop. Some models even act like a stoplight, with a yellow caution lamp, followed by a red stop lamp.
One of my hobbies is tinkering on old cars in my garage. To me there’s nothing more relaxing than getting under the hood of what someone else considers a ”piece of junk” and doing my thing to make it run again. I’m not quite at the point where I can say that I restore classic cars, but that’s definitely my goal someday. It takes money to get into that game, though, so for now I just practice on old beaters that I find for a couple hundred bucks each. Once I get the vehicles running again, I can usually find a buyer and recoup my costs.
If you own a home with a garage, it is likely that you are not making full use of the space that is available. As a matter of fact, the garage tends to be one of the more cluttered areas of the home and it finds its way into this situation over the course of time. After all, the garage is an area of the home that is not open to the public eye in most cases and it is often the choice location for items that do not have any logical place in the home. Before long, we find that the area is cramped and we may not even be able to park a car in the garage as a result. What are some of the things that you can do in order to make more space in the garage?
