The Workshop community includes many people passionate and skilled in tackling D.I.Y. projects, so it’s no surprise that they spend plenty of time making their garage and shed both functional and a great place to work.


Some have even transformed old garages and sheds into wonderful new spaces to extend their living area and increase the value of their homes. 


If you need inspiration for how to transform your workspace, check out the following list of the Top 10 most popular garage and shed projects on Workshop by pageviews:

1. Epoxy Garage Floor Project by @maknilsin


Workshop’s most popular project. Whether you have an old garage floor or just want to improve the look of a new one, this is a brilliant example of what can be achieved with a simple D.I.Y. floor coating kit.


2. Cordless drill storage charging station by @Wayne


Experienced woodworker Wayne has shared many fantastic projects with the community, but none have been as popular as this very clever storage solution for cordless drills. Wayne also made a fantastic second version.


3. New shed storage project by @Tara86


A terrific example of what can be achieved with customised storage and an accessible working area, even with relatively limited space. Tara's portable workbench is a particularly smart idea in a shared space like a garage.


4. Garage storage project by @boris


While sadly unfinished, this custom garage storage solution has inspired many Workshop visitors and members alike. It’s clear that having an organised, clutter-free garage is a common goal.

5. New workbenches by @Rodney


We admire the research that went into this practical workbench. Rodney had “never built anything serious” previously, but his planning work to create plenty of storage and work space really paid off.


6. D.I.Y. portable bike stand by @Tara86 


Tara created a wonderful portable bike stand on castors so she could quickly and easily move them around. After receiving many plaudits from the community and requests from members wanting to build something similar, Tara generously shared step-by-step instructions on how to replicate the project.


7. Workshop shed build by @Kiwifr33


Clearly a passion project, it was fascinating to watch this wonderfully unique backyard shed get constructed. Kiwifr33’s project to build a solid workbench for the shed lso proved very popular with the community.


8. Old shed to funky studio conversion  by @Kermit


A great example of converting an old shed with limited usefulness to an appealing and flexible workspace that increases the value of a home.   


9. New shed studio project by @TheSaltyreefer 


This enormous studio would be a brilliant space for working in and has impressed and inspired many Workshop visitors and members alike.

10. Timber-framed double garage and workshop build by @Seaton 


Featuring a mezzanine level, epoxy floors, bespoke lighting, plenty of workspace and oodles of storage, this is another inspiring large-scale project that was fantastic value for money.

Hi @James98,

Welcome to Workshop, a D.I.Y. community for home improvement and gardening discussion.


I take it you are wanting assistance with your garage door remote? I think you would be better contacting Liftaway via their website. I also note that their site has instruction manuals -
