    Hey everyone,

    I’ve been an OG member since the Facebook group was tiny. Matt and the gang have given me some bad ideas as to what I need in my garage, but when I joined the group I was renting a home with a detached single car garage that I didn’t feel the need to modify. Fast forward March of this year when I purchased my first home. I knew that I needed a two-car garage, and I found a house that met all of the other criteria I set. The garage needed….significant help, and I’ve slowly begun that process.

    The home came with pegboard down both side walls, and I’ve begun the tedious process of removing that. The downside is that the drywall behind it is rough, but I’m looking at is as a way to practice my drywall repair skills. I liked one of the colors that my girlfriend picked out to paint some interior walls, and I’m using the leftover portion of that for the bare drywall.

    I probably wrench on cars more than I detail them, but I pride myself on having a relatively clean car despite the enormous levels of Central FL rain. I’d like to tailor the garage to not only house my baby (E90 M3) and her related parts/supplies, but also my girlfriend’s small SUV and some things that don’t fit in the house. I’ll keep the wash/detail basics in some cabinets, and eventually install some lighting while I teach myself how to polish/correct.

    Parts that are on order:

    • NewAge Bold 3.0 6 piece set
    • Definitive Technology AW6500 speakers
    • Onkyo 535 receiver

    Future plans:

    • 1-2 AirKing fans like Matt uses
    • Additional lighting
    • Compressor
    • A set of 5k QuickJacks for oil changes, etc.
    • Racedeck flooring

    This will likely be a 6-12 month project, as there are many other things I need to do to the house before I tackle the major drywall repair. I’ll do my best to chronicle progress here!

    The day I closed:

     

    Pegboard

     

    More pegboard (along with my interior trim painting assembly line)

     

    The drywall nightmare

    Nice progress! Very similar to how I started my project. We have identical cars too.

    Thanks everyone. tenman, I wish mine was ZCP!

    I worked for a few hours last night and snagged some updated pics. I painted the front wall of the garage and hung the speakers. I’ve got temporary shelving from my old garage in place until my cabinets arrive in a few weeks.
