Filling Up The New Garage

As you can see the ceiling height is considerable. My plan is to build a loft on which to erect a real Bedouin tent with some man cave necessities such as: Persian rugs, cushions, fridge, TV for F1 ONLY, a parrot, a cement tumbler which harmoniously rumbles in a corner mixing up Pim's or Margueritas, petrol driven ice crusher, a good set of duel hand guns in case the party gets boring, an extra parrot in case the first one breaks, a dancing pole, a horizontal pole from which to hang upside down and shoot Tequila, a dress and dices in case no women show up, Pierce Morgan as butler since the pr1ck is out of work and not likely to get a gig anytime soon, a sable to open the Champagne when Ferrari wins, five drunk Fins and five throwing knives, a trailer canteen with a happy chef, a clay pigeon thrower, and some more stuff - happy for suggestions!

I'm sure you can think of something!? A train horn? A lobster tank? Three camels?

Good idea! I'll use my snow chains. The ashtrays are from buffalo hoofs.

It's a good size for lot's of toys.

Suggest sealing or putting epoxy on the fresh concrete before something drips and stains it.

Garage Art - those walls need to scream "my man cave".

You are absolutely right! I'll do what I can but it's a rental garage so I can't do a full restoration. I'll install stuff which can be removed easily for when I can afford to buy my own man cave garage.

You're absolutely right again! I have dwarfs down in the fore peak on the old gaffer, they make great mates. I'll source some for the garage.

Catapult may be useful for trash disposal. Consider putting a trap door under a chair to seat dubious friends. Maybe a trapeze instead of the horizontal pole? Chainsaws are always fun at less formal events. Would you enjoy a cloud machine? Is the garage surrounded by a moat? it would open options.

I will buy one new and send the tumbler drum to chroming for easier cleaning and better hygiene. Better still if they could make the drum out of stainless, perhaps a good business idea? - Xmas gift of the year: stainless cement tumbler for margueritas.

Today I looked at a restored vintage Berkel ham and sausage slicing disc. It would fit in perfectly in the garage. It's a beauty of fine mechanics. You turn a big red iron flywheel which spins the cutting disc and simultaneously drives the ham feeding device. On the feeding device you can mechanically adjust the slices down to see-through thin! It's partly chrome, stainless, aluminium and red - a must have beauty.

Capo- How much does it cost to visit Switzerland? Sounds like I could live in your garage.
