Me and my father have decided to turn 2 storage bays into work shops, we’re both going to have a unit that’s 10 x 12 meters and fully insulated with a roller door and extra wide personnel door, f##k I can’t wait as it’s been a dream to have something like this, I’m going to turn it into a full on mancave with surround sound and a big ass projector with all my bikes and posters etc. Can’t happen fast enough, looks like this at the moment.

Nice one Warren, how cool is that?!!

A palace for you and the bikes. You'll spend more time in there than in the house Wink

In fact... put a bed in there, then you can have a quick 40 winks, watch a film and return to what you were doing -without having to put all the tools away Big smile
Question everything.

I’ve gotta be careful as I have a feeling I’ll end up living like Bert Munro, I’m gonna have a big old settee and fridge etc, somewhere me and my mates can chill out and build bikes

I have my grandfathers big old speakers and my denon surround sound system already earmarked, need to find a big ass tv or projector with a couple old leather settees. A company next door rents bog mats and they have some old ones so I asked if I could have one, these things are 200mm thick and about 5mtr long by a metre wide, gonna make a great table and work bench.

Woo hoo us mere mortals can only dream of a mancave this big and specced up , 

I’m about to build a much much much smaller one for myself but it will be good to finally have somewhere at home to play with a bike

That’s a big chunk of steel 


The size of it lends itself to having a mezzanine floor 

Thought about it ???

The steel is directly under the roof as extra support, I have thought about it in the next bay, especially if I turn it into a house

Numerous from my local bike shop, going to have the rumble bee off my truck painted on the back of the roller door and the mr shifter sign from my fathers garage painted on one of the walls, the main girder is being painted Kawasaki green with a load of Kawasaki model stickers down it. Gotta find a big HEMI sign as well, maybe neon😊
