The time finally came to take the wall down for more shop space. Both of those walls house smaller rooms. The room with the door was already holding 3 motorcycles so there was really no point in having the wall! The wall wasn't load bearing so it was snap to get rid of.
What a huge difference! We moved the bench and toolbox over to make a better work corner.
Even threw a little bit of paint on the walls.
We'll continue to fix the sheetrock finish off the walls and hang a few more lights. With the studs taken out of the wall I'm going to build a decent bike stand. All about recycling what you have!
I'd like to even move the air compressor into the old closet.
We just found out through a neighbor who has been living in the neighborhood since the mid 60s that the house really use to be a barn. At the time the owner of the house behind us was a pilot. He was into cars and built the barn to house them. It wasn't until the late '70s early '80s it was actually converted into a house. It's gone from car barn to bike barn!
