New home for 'Cybil'

I was fortunate enough to be able to build a 26x26 man sanctuary this past summer with the focal point being a BendPak XPR-10ACX 2 post lift! I've already used the lift several times and only wish I had been able to do this much sooner.

I equipped the garage with a Liftmaster jackshaft garage door opener so I didn't have to deal with any center opening rail issues. I had a small shop heater hung from the ceiling in the left back corner. It's doing a good job of keeping the garage warm. Really glad my contractor made a suggestion to put the ceiling exhaust fan in. Went ahead and had him install it. It's awesome. It pulls so much air that any and all exhaust is sucked right out! I put Epoxy Coat on the floor and so far I've been pleased with the results. Seems to be a durable product. Time will tell, but I have already dropped a heavy skid plate and it didn't even hurt the floor!

Following are some pics of the build and end result:

Looks Great. It's great to have a garage and a lift just adds to it.

Got the oil drain at Harbor Freight. The trans jack and jack stand I ordered from http://www.asedeals.com/ Same place I ordered the lift from.

Very nice man cave there!! I too just had my lift installed in March. I got a Challenger CL10V3. Don't know how I went so long without one. It's just so much more convenient to do even small tasks. Nice job on the garage!

Believe it is 12' 2". I provided the specs to my contractor and he essentially built the garage to fit the lift. Went with a Liftmaster side motor garage door opener to free up overhead space for whatever I would be lifting as well. Little details like that made for a much better lift use experience.

Glad to be of service! Remember to get an exhaust fan installed too. It was a relatively inexpensive option thrown out there by my contractor at the end. Glad I opted to have it installed.
