Not much reason to go in the house then!

I have a single car attached garage that the wife's car lives in and a three bay shop. The shop houses my pickup in one bay, and the bike (as well as a sometime project vehicle) in the second. One bay is 20x24 and that is where all the work gets done. Houses three welders, large tool box, air compressor, forge/with anvil, and numerous other tools, (grinders, drill press, beam mounted 1 ton chain fall, large work bench, etc.).

The work bay almost isn't large enough to work on my pick-up (04' Chevy 2500 diesel, extended cab long box.

Here's mine. I made the 3rd bay my dedicated motorcycle workshop area. We use the 2 car bay for parking our cars. I park next to the 3rd bay, in case I need extra room to work. It works out great for me, as I spend a lot of time out there. I also have a 70,000 BTU natural gas heater out there to keep it nice and comfortable during the winter months. This was an earlier video, but I have since added an HMC industries MC lift which is Harley orange and black.

My shed is 12' x12' and have been using it for 15 years now, sorry I don't have better pics of it.

Is this big enough to work on everything? Could you put a lift in there?

Yeah, it's big enough. Space depends on shelving, I have a 28" deep by 24" wide workbench in the center (to the right of the metal shelving and lawnmower) and a 'school' locker and a 55 gallon garbage can that holds my long sticks of lumber and plastic pipe. I have a loft that is 5' deep and is 6 and 1/2 feet above the floor that holds Xmas stuff and bike parts and camping equip. I have a 9 and 1/2 ft. of plywood on the floor where I park my bike.

My garage is single-wide with extra space for walking through, so I guess it would be a 1.5 wide garage. It holds my bike, drum set, bicycles, tools and sometimes, boxes for the Christmas decorations which are inside the house.
My shed holds riding mower, push mower, weed eater, leaf blower, storage boxes.
My driveway holds two cars and a truck. Isn't that the way it's supposed to be?
