If you have an older car that you’ve been meaning to restore and get running for several years, then this summer could be a great time to do just that. At Better Built Barns in Oregon, we know that you have a lot on your plate once summer rolls around, but this could be the year that you put your car project at the top of the list.

With a new custom garage, you can finally have the workspace that you need to rebuild an engine, refinish the interior, and tune everything up before you take your car out on the road. Contact us today to learn more!

Get Your Hands Dirty

One of the things you may love most about working on cars is getting your hands dirty. Whether you’re working on the engine, changing the oil, or replacing worn spark plugs, you like getting under the hood or under the car. When you’re done, your hands are greasy and dirty, and you know you’ve done a good day’s work.

However, your hands also get dirty as you work on things at your workbench. If you’re making repairs in the attached garage where your spouse parks their car or you have boxes stored, then you might be worried about leaving a mess or what you might touch with your greasy hands. With a new garage workspace, you can get your hands as dirty as you want and leave things out so you can come back to them later.

Work in Any Weather

Oregon is known for its rainstorms, and if you don’t have a garage, then you likely have to keep your old car tarped and covered when you’re not working on it. You also have to wait for nice weather in order to work in the driveway, since no one likes making car repairs in the rain. Even if you have a carport or partially covered shelter where you can work, the area is still going to get wet when it’s pouring outside.

By building a new garage, you’ll be able to work on your vehicle in any weather. Your workspace will stay dry, and you can have the car hood, doors, and trunk open while the rain comes down outside. You can even add air conditioning or a dehumidifier to your garage for the perfect climate control!
