Not my garage but the place where my race cars were built, maintained and stored. (more pics at: 901 Shop)

The one in my garage is similar -- maybe the same?



Edit: On second look, my sign looks smaller -- the 'Stuttgart' text is also acrylic on yours, but not on mine.

Jack,

That does look like the same product. Might be the same person. Nice work on your garage as well. I spent some time over on the Garage Journal Board to get some ideas for my garage and saw yours pop up several times.

If anyone else wants the sign ladies contact info send me pm.

Justin

Did you ever find the full-size copy of that instruction sheet? If so, could you PM-it to me?

Justin,
Thanks for the crest lady's info. Really like the black, white and gray color concept. Read about your floor, which manufacturer did you use?

I'm building a garage in my back yard this spring. I'm planning 18' x 40'. I plan to stress out a lot, hurt my back humping materials and drain my bank account completely. Any other suggestions?

If possible, go wider. My shop is 19' wide and I can't comfortably work on two cars side-by-side simultaneously. I have to "stagger" them. Can you go 25' w?

I don't plan to work on anything side by side. I'm going 40' long and the back half will have a lift and be used for maintenance. The front half will be used for parking. I can't really go any wider.

Jasper does this mean you're gonna have another stop on the yearly garage circuit, Mike's, Charlie's and yours? I think you've pretty much covered the realities (back,account and stress). As much natural and artificial light as possible is great, looks like you're going to do a vaulted ceiling....how about a skylight or two? If you have some reservations about them, check out light tubes, they put out a lot of light with a minimum hole through the roof (normal fireplace flashing).Cheers

That's totally part of the plan I've got a call in to Charlie now in fact because his setup has a lot in common with mine.

I am thinking about a skylight, but the added cost of the structure and of the roofing is putting me off. Light tubes though eh..... I see some googling in my near future (weather is total crap anyway).

The epoxy was Tnemec. Here is the site. I donít think my colors came from them. The installer had enough of my color left from a job to do my garage. I got a pretty good deal because he gave me the flakes.

TNEMEC.com: Series 224 | Deco-Fleck

Justin, love your minimalist looking garage...

Can you shed some light / impressions on / of the MaxJax lift: floor mounting specs (concrete thickness, etc)

Thx.

Low slope roofing....torch on? You have what appears to be built up beams 4' on center, and I assume you will have the insulation/ventilation space above that ....R20 2x8's...or R12 2x6 running perpendicular to the beams? I'm not building it, but if I'm right, or close to it, the structural aspect is nothing. The 2x8' are almost exclusively for insulation and venting since they're sitting on beams every four feet.They will be all the support you'll need for the skylight. The roofing is more time consuming and therefore more costly, and the cost of the skylight itself is an issue, but I figure they are worth it.(easy for me to say...LOL) That being said, if your roofing is indeed torch-on you can, with relative ease, retro-fit at a later date. I have two shops on my property, one with a vaulted ceiling with skylights for general work (unfortunately not big enough for easy Porsche work) and a woodwork shop with a loft for wood storage (therefore no skylights). I love working in the space with the skylights, less shadows and brighter than even a well lit shop.....I'm finding light a lot more important as my eyes seem to be letting me down. In another post about shops I said that in my woodwork shop I wired it the same as a kitchen counter top ....making it so any two adjacent receptacle boxes have four separate circuits connected to the four receptacles. Maybe not as important in an automotive application, but still useful. Cheers

Can you put another door at the opposite end? Havibng to move 3 cars to get one out would be a gigantic pain.
