Wow this is timely...

Almost..ALMOST finished...3 more months hopefully...



The right side of home is the garage area. The contractor was helpful but I wanted a Mechanics opinion; so a 4 post was recommended along with specified ceiling height.

Space for 5 cars.

Cabinets are due in December and the floor is still up for discussion. I do like the examples here...

A/C and heating is a must along with drainage so the floor will slope just slightly.

Ventilation will be enhanced because I like a cigar every now and then.

Lighting is still being determined...

Keep the ideas coming folks...

Cheers

We definately need more pics of peoples garages. The more the merrier. This is the converted joinery shop a friend has and I'm fortunate to be able to leave a couple of my cars there. We usually have 8 - 10 cars there at any one time. And yes there is a hoist.

Don't know about carpet in the garage though...

Believe it or not, it's what you put in the garage that's costly...tools, lifts, lighting, A/C, Flooring, ventilation, cabinets, power, insulation, 1/2 bathroom...and now after see this....Plasma TV, sound system, bar, fridge...

It's killin me here...

Well as long as we're talking about any garage...

Here's what I start on this month.. interior walls, shelving and counters will be built once the shell goes up.

Front and rear overhead doors will create a nice breeze way in the summer. Engine lab will receive sound insulation if I feel like being nice

Of course every man's garage should have a Poker Lounge!

I haven't decided if I will keep my scissors lift or get a 2-post...

Souk,
Have you considered a 3' knee wall overlooking the garage space?

I'm actually going to install glass/windows on the interior walls later. The "Poker Lounge" is going to serve as my engineering office if I decide my current "pimps" have made enough money off me So I need to keep the 12X12 area clean, insulated and heated.

I'll be rigged with multi-media so when the stippers come over I'll be ready

The right half of the building will have a storage area over it. Since I have 10" walls with the scissors trusses, I will have pretty decent space for storing light weight items like tires and body parts, which I seem to be tripping over all the time

It's a concession to Villiage ordinance that limits garage space to 3 cars on subdivision lots. The 12" of concrete should prevent me or anyone else from chipping away the floor to park a car there. Lots of silliness to get to this point.

Damn GFORCED! I'm digging the designer sink! Nice!
