Garage Success

About a month ago I mentioned about Making Space In The Garage. We have been able to park my wife’s car on her side since then. We also rearranged some of the storage last week to make it more accessible and easier to manage. This afternoon- we tackled my side. And won!

With a few things still needing better placement, I’m happy with the progress. We have some donations to send out and some recycling to toss that will help with the space. But all in all, I now have a spot to park my car.

We now have two cars parked in a two car garage! This makes me tremendously happy. Much to their chagrin- I had to have to kids out there to enjoy my moment of triumph! This was a total “Dad Flex” to unbury the garage and park our cars.

Go Joe! Next is to organize the shed…

A True Man Cave

Last weekend we visited my sister in Powell River. Besides my sister having an amazing view all year round of the ocean, her husband has something equally as impressive. He built the most masculine garage I have ever been in.


When he is in town, his buddies love to stop by.  Some gorgeous cars and Harleys show up.  Inside the garage is a work space and diamond plates used as door frames and along the back of his counters. A grey, silver and black paint job cleans the place up.


He also has a tv, stereo, classic beer fridge, a large round table with “Corona” burned into it and bar stools.  Never need a reason to leave this room.

A couple of quads, a couple of his own bikes, and his black Super Sport are often seen inside.  

One of his bikes has gorgeous red imagery painted on the tank and fenders. He fired it up and you could feel the rumble just standing nearby.


I’m not mechanical in any way except doing an oil change. But I do appreciate the necessity of a Man Cave to promote your hobby.  His garage is pretty fantastic and well built. I hope he gets years of use out of it.
