I just solved my garage space issue.

I rented a 1800 sq/ft warehouse/industrial space. (Overgrown man-cave)
16 ft ceiling, 10 ft door, fire sprinkler, alarm, 24 hour video indoor/outdoor surveillance.

I get the keys later today.

Now I can really get to work on the 914 rebuild with my son. I'm throwing my hat in for the 2018 buildoff challenge right now.



If you need storage/work space in Phoenix, let me know, I've got extra.

That is just one of the many reasons I won't live in the PRoK.

Rent is a LOT cheaper in Phoenix and I have some other guys storing some stuff(trailer, boat, etc) with me so my total cost will be around $0.00 per month.

Doesn't matter how big a shed(garage) you have it will always be too small. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) That's why 4 post hoists for parking storage were made, if you can't go out go up. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sunglasses.gif)

I postulate the following idiom was first uttered by the caveman who invented the wheel (and immediately wanted a bunch of them!)

Nature abhors a vacuum

I built a 1000 sq. ft. shop. What was I thinking...?

These kinds of posts make me think more and more about opening a Garage Condominium facility. I would guess that what you're paying a month in rent is comparable if not more than what the note would be on an equivalent size space that you would end up owning.

By chance, did you end up looking into: http://www.toybarnstorage.com/

They say they are in the Phoenix area.

Yup. Been in my signature for years.

I totally agree, when building my shop I thought it was huge, by the time I finished my shop I said I should have made it bigger.
Then I built a two car garage on the house...should have made it bigger.
Looking at adding another 24' unheated area (800sq/ft) to the back of the shop this year. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

Nothing personal but, I HATE YOU!!!! LOL!!!

Back when I first started looking for space, I checked out "The Toy Barn" but they only had one location and all the units were sold so I started looking at other options. Now, the day I signed the lease on my new space, I find out they opened a second location. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)
If you hadn't posted, I would have remained blissfully ignorant, but NOOOO, you had to stick a pin in my happy balloon. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chair.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hissyfit.gif)

Oh, well, I am still happy with the space I got and the price is actually less than the same amount of space would cost me at The Toy Barn. I'll see what I want to do in a couple years when my lease is up.

That toy barn place reminds me of a scaled down version of the automotorplex up here in MN.

Where did you lease a unit? I work in the Scottsdale Airpark and that is like toy storage city. Lots of exotic and rare cars parked in hangars with private jets.

I-17 and Thomas industrial area. I couldn't justify Scottsdale storage prices.

I'm currently in the process of finding (or maybe building) a storage place to put with a lift, a few big screen TVs, etc. in the metro NY area. More like a club than just a storage facility. PM me if interested!

I have a friend with a place at the original Toy Barn in Cave Creek. Nice facility with club room for parties, watching F1 races etc. Nice set up with various sized units.
They are building a new one a few miles from the original one breaking ground any time now.
I thought about getting a unit but my son and I are building a garage/shop on his lot. Luckily he lives near our place in north Scottsdale.
Good solution if you're running out of space at home, or can't build a bigger garage.

I'm at 78th St and Redfield in that area North of Redfield and South of the runway next to what seems like 10 different crossfit gyms.
