I am getting ready to break-ground on my garage on 7-11-15. I am very excited that it is finally happening, and I can stop having to store my '68 while paying over $100/month. Anyway, this thing is going to be as decked-out as possible, and will be my little man-cave on this earth. With that, I have some questions for some of you that may have asked yourselves the same things at one point:
1. My garage size will be 22' x 18', which is the largest I can build on my property. Does anyone have a garage around that size? How does it handle a 17' long car, along with any tools, etc. in there?
2. I read the thread a while ago on the different types of car lifts that people have, but would love to hear from someone that may have a lift, with a garage around my size.
3. Anyone use that race-deck that I always see advertised on Velocity? How do you like it? I love the checkerboard look on the floor, but worst-case, I will just epoxy it if the race-deck isn't worth it.
4. I am a mason and carpenter by trade, so I am literally doing everything myself, with a couple buddies and some brewskies, of course. I had to draw-up plans to get the permit, but this thing is pretty much a blank canvas, so I would love some advice/regrets on things some of you may or may not have done, that you wish you did/didn't on yours (i.e. ceiling height, location of windows/doors, interior finishes, power, etc..)
Thanks in advance, and yes, I will post many pics as I get rolling.
