Started building a new house with a 3 car garage.

Can't wait to start this little project.

My Stepfather always had cool garages... So, I'm looking forward to getting mine going.

Going to be a long project but will be fun.

As of yesterday They've just started laying the foundation.

I'll post some pics tonight or tomorrow.

Here's the floor plan of the garage.

The step ceiling is confirmed to be 24" high so that will give me about 10' 6" of ceiling height... Just enough room for a lift

Where is the guest room for me and my car?

Also, you need at least 13' ceilings for that chassis lift you'll be wanting.

I just noticed... the title reads "Started building a new house with a 3 car garage."

All I see is a garage. Where is the house? You do have your priorities, don't you!

BTW, congrats on such an exciting project!

Holy crap!



Not even a day old and already hijacked.

As far as the lift goes I'm looking at a 4post on casters. I'll leave it down on the right side of the garage. When the camaro needs work I'll move the lift under the step ceiling. By my math. There should be just enough height for me to Stand under it. I'd love a two post. But can't justify a two post in the middle in the garage.

But first things first. I'll need to get benches an the floor coated. Paint on the walls

Should be a fun project.

Chris,
Painted walls. Great idea. Paint this on one wall... (I got it from another member who put it in his livingroom).
They really should make Camaro fatheads.

Depends on the color he paints the walls. I vote for CGM!

He'll probably go with pink though.
