When we bought the house in Idaho, the garage was a disaster. The drywall was sagging, wires were nailed to the walls, ducts were exposed, etc. So I gutted the place entirely and rebuilt it to my liking and standards.
Oddly enough, I don't actually have "before" pictures. This is the best I can do, which is already after the destruction began.
It's hard to work in your shop when you're working on your shop.
Winter was even worse because the driveway wasn't available.
The insulation was the worst -- itchy itchy! Constantly moving that pile out of the way drove me nuts.
But finally things started looking better.
And then one morning, it suddenly looked like this. Actually, a lot of intermediate pictures are buried in a box somewhere.
This was the initial set of shelves, which I doubled later.
