There was little flexibility in the poll. I wish there was a feature that allowed to select various once. I should have put an all of the above one too.

Well if you put in "all of the above", then that would be the obvious winner of the poll.
I am blessed in that I have 3 of the 10 "dream garage" items already in place (the fridge loaded with beer is one of them).

The indoor pressure washing enclosure is something I do not need. I have a Jeep and quite often when I bring it home I need to wash it (and myself) before I bring it into the garage. That is best an outdoor activity.

I would like to have a nice "state-of-the-art" floor. The floor in my garage is asphalt. It really sucks. But, it is what the house came with and when you consider that I have 5-cars worth of garage space it is something you can learn to live with. Better than dirt. I would rather have a lift than a nice floor. When I build my new house I hope to have both. Actually, I will have 9 of the 10 items you mentioned. I won't have an indoor pressure washer enclosure, although I might have an area I can enclose as a spray booth! That is something you didn't consider in your dream garage!

I've seen a garage that had heating coils in the floor and then a black and white checker board finish. That garage was just amazing!

A simple and inexpensive alternative is the pit. I have a 3'-6" X 10'
6' Deep pit in my single story garage. It is the cats pajamas. I had it poured when the floor went in and they charged me an extra $100.00

I had thought about putting in a pit however, the water table here is not that far down and I think I would end up with an indoor pool.

I can definitely say the one thing I would NOT want in there is the fridge loaded with beer... Why? I'd spend all my time drinking instead of getting to work on my cars! :lol:

My dream garage would be more of a dream WORKSHOP. A complete machining/welding/fabricating/painting facility. Obviously because of my tradesman roots. My joy in classic car ownership is the work I do on them. I'd love to build-up a collection of barn-find junked classics and restore them to prestine condition...

Now if only I could win that darn lottery...

Dream Garage...how much time do you have?

I have it pictured in my mind, however...first, I have to totally fence in my property, then landscape the front yard, then do the garage. There is a priority list. Already have an air compressor in there, but my framed Ferrari posters are stored away....waiting. I found the flooring I want but the cabinets...I'm still trying to decide. The Honda motorcycle collection will be in there too. Thank goodness Honda had the intelligence to maintain a red color scheme thru the years...they'll blend in well :)
Hondas:
'75 MR50
'73 XR75
'74 XR75
'74 XL125
'86 XR250
'00 XR50
'00 400EX (the only 4 wheeler)
'03 CRF150F
'05 CRF230F
also a few parts bikes laying around
