Other than a car.

Here's mine: Golf clubs, boxes with stuff I don't know, gardening tools, lawn mower, foodstuff, car cleaning stuff, home office supply, etc. etc. etc.

me too.
Plus I have my car (when I'm not using it), a generator, powerwasher, lawnmower, snow blower, chain saw, lots of mechanic tools, cutting torch set, various lawn and garden stuff, and all kind of junk in the garage attic.

lawn mower

Looks like the venerable Briggs & Stratton with the Pulsajet carb on it. Those are the DC-3 of small engines you just can't kill em'.

Just about everything other than a car! Our house was built in the 1950s, when cars were a lot smaller in the UK, so it's a job fitting even a compact city runabout into there. Instead it's got a workshop area down one side, with various bench drills, a band saw, circular mitre, grinders etc.. then there's a bunch of storage shelves which are packed with paint, wallpaper, electrical bits and bobs and then at the back is the dumping ground for anything which wouldn't fit in the house or isn't needed - there's even an old piano in there which I would really rather have in the lounge, but it's just too big.

Baby bits,

What?...

I have a lot of my summer stuff stored in my garage during winter...... Lawn mower, rakes, shovels, etc. In summer i store winter stuff like snow shovels and Christmas lights and decorations. I always put my garbage bags, recycling and green bin in there as well.
I need to build a storage shed in my backyard so i can free up some space and make it less cluttered.

You know my lawn mower more than me. II'll take your word but I have trouble starting that thing, it usually take two or three attempts.

And a treadmill that's good for hanging my coveralls on.

probably needs a new diaphragm on the carb. It is an easy repair. The parts will cost less than $10.

Less than $10 huh? Thanks, but how much for the consultation?

I don't know how much a small engine mechanic charges around you, but probably $40-$50 an hour. Take off the air filter and send me a photo of the carburetor and I'll walk you through it. You only need a few basic tools (usually only a couple of flat blade screwdrivers), a razor blade, and some carb/choke cleaner. I can't tell you how many of those I have got out of the trash and got running again for only a little money.

I think I solved the problem; The gas tank is almost empty. Anyway, I'll let you know if it gives me more problems. Again, thanks.

Well, I still have my shop in my converted barn, with three work benches, a monster vice, an anvil, a bench drill, a belt sander, a grinding wheel, a lathe, oxygen-acetylen welding gear, arc welding gear, filled wire welding gear and lots of tools.

One of our mechanics collects those Russian and Chinese prewar BMW clones. For him a Russian or Chinese motorbike has to be painted in khaki or olive drab, this means that it was built to military spec quality standards, which where much higher than the civilian ones. One plan of his is to fit a 2CV engine into one of his bikes.

Nahhh. Tell your pal what he needs is to get his hands on a Panhard Dyna engine for his motorbike project. That or a roller crank Porsche motor. I bet he has a Munch Mammut jones. Am I right?

Two cars, my girlfriend's hideous Christmas yard decorations, a lawn mower, my beloved Husqvarna weed whacker, and misc crap that I have tried to make the woman keep contanerized... With limited success.

The smartest things we ever did with a garage were:
1. Require a 2 car garage to actually have 2 cars in it (avoids an accumulation of crap)
2. Rust-Oleum epoxy floor coating- The stuff is amazing. Whenever my old Accord gets a little incontinent it just wipes off
3. Actually painting the walls. I can't stand seeing bare drywall.

I am also starting to hang the posters that won't fit in my man cave, and my license plate collection in the garage.
