Over the next couple of weeks we'll go more in depth on some of the things Pit Products offers to help organize and add style to your garage and/or workshop. Today we'll do some background and basics.
The modern day garage has evolved from a small single car afterthought to what we know now as a hub of activity; from car storage, to workshop and beyond to the open house party/poker room. A little tid bit on the word Garage is that it came from the French word garage which was first recorded in the early 1800's as "a place where one docks." I don't recall any time in the past where I've told someone "I believe I will dock my car here." Just sounds kind of funny and wet to me. The verb garer originally meant "to put merchandise under shelter." This I can and do understand!
The saying goes that a man's house is his castle and while I agree with that, I must say that to most of us men that would mean the garage is the Great Hall of that castle. It's the place where we feel comfortable, a place we're in our element; there's tools there, things to do, things to build, things to tear down just to see how they tick or even for the challenge of putting them back together with all of the same parts (yes, I've had leftover parts before from something I tore down...oops!). The garage is a mad scientist lab of sorts and it's the King's alone to decorate and organize and decorate and organize he must! Because I'm coming at this from a "King's" perspective, don't think this doesn't apply to women as well; there are some female "gear heads" and "wrench turners" out there that could put a lot of us to shame; well I'll speak for me/they can put me to shame. It's their castle as well.
As a castle and the king (or queen) of that castle you get to decide on how to organize and fill that great hall that we call the garage. You know the place to shelter your merchandise. Pit Products can help any one of us fulfill that task and leave us with a professional satisfied feeling when we're done. (Okay, you're never really done fixing up the garage).
If you're just starting off; say you just bought your own house, or you've finally got the means to fix up the garage or create your own workshop, you're going to need a good work bench to start out. Some people are very comfortable working off the floor, others working beneath their project but the fact remains: there needs to be someplace in a garage that one can easily lay their tools on while working.
Pit Products offers a wide selection of Heavy Duty Base Cabinets for just such a purpose at a reasonable cost. This will be the center of any garage/workshop, so it's important to get something sturdy and easy to work on.
Pit Products offers the 2, 4, 6 and 8 ft. base cabinets that would be a great starting point for anyone. Size depends on how much room you have in your garage and how much you're willing to put into your organizing. If you've got the room, Go Big! You can't have enough storage space. Pit Products also offers a Corner Base Cabinet to clean up that cluttered mess in the corner. It also helps tie all of the cabinets from one wall to the next together, neatly and professionally.
The Heavy Duty Base Cabinet tops can either be a smooth aluminum finish or they can match the diamond plate design to give your garage that professional feel and keep it the envy of your friends and neighbors. Every King wants to be the talk of the town. All Heavy Duty Base Cabinets do come with one adjustable shelf and you can buy as many more that you want to install and shelf installation is pretty easy.
Pit Products also offers package deals which some people enjoy as they're starting off or renovating the garage. The package deal allows you to save up to 10% when you buy the base cabinet with its matching overhead cabinet together. Pit Products offers several different types of packages, so check those out as well. We will go over these (overhead cabinets and package deals) in more detail over the next couple of weeks.
