    I was 28 years old when I finally bought my first house/garage. I never had that luxury when I was living in shitty apartments. And it's still not really a "luxury" considering it's only a 10x23 single car garage. I still end up working on cars in the driveway 90% of the time because there's just not enough space in here.

    My advice......make sure your house has a big enough garage lol. Sounds like you have the right idea :waytogo:

    I'd prefer a 4-post because you can just pull a car or truck up onto it and it's ready to go up; plus there's no worry of something coming unbalanced when it's 5 or 6 feet off the ground. And I know it's a rare occurrence

    My buddy's dad has an old Rotary 2-post lift that they use for cars and smaller trucks; won't hold a fullsize F250 or K2500 it's a decent lift don't get me wrong, but it's just not enough lift sometimes; and he swears up and down he'll get a big drive on lift one of these days.

    I don't think I could ever live in an apartment;
    I've been pricing out land and modular homes and such; right now a 3/4 bed, 2/2.5 bath double wide and some steel outbuildings will suit my needs perfectly. I know it's gonna be expensive to do it that way; but I feel like I'd never be happy if I didn't get it my way right off the bat.

    I have a 24x24 two stall and some days that isn't enough. A 30x60 is almost what I need just to park shit for the night. A 60x100is about what I need to be comfortable for the future with a two stall attached to the house.

    I'm going with a new Rotary when it's time for a lift. Just about every dealership and higher end shop I've been to has their lift stuff. They get used daily. And they last forever.

    I thought I'd post here since it's not really about "New Tools" or "Tool Boxes". It is about what I wound up doing in my shop. A little background - we have a Samsung 65" curved TV which developed a dark vertical streak in the center after 3 years. We bought it at Costco and purchased an extended warranty for ~$89. So, I contacted Square Trade, the warranty Co, texted a couple pictures of it and they sent me a new 65" 2019 Samsung Q70R flat TV and told me to keep the original one. So I decided to "upgrade" my shop TV.

    Had to move the wire racks over to where I have all of my fasteners (another project for later) and threw up a couple sheets of plywood and hung my TV from the living room (note the dark streak in the center).

    I had some closet shelf brackets and some melamine and plywood to make shelves. Now I can watch my favorite episodes of Road Kill from anywhere in my shop, at no extra cost to me, ha ha!

    I've got a nearly 15 year old Vizio 42" that I've been using as a computer monitor. It's the old CFL style backlight so it's starting to fade a little around the edges. I've been thinking about upgrading it but it hasn't bothered me enough yet. This might be motivation to do it sooner. Great idea!
