Dr Jkel's New Home

Hello All,

I would like to Thank Tran for making this section as I think it is greatly beneficial to alot of people here on Camaro 5.

With the purchase of my Camaro ( Dr Jkel ) my old truck ( Mr. Hyde)completion ( HOPEFULLY REAL SOON) and a few other toys I decided to build a new garage. Being a contractor for many years I may have a little insight that might just help some of those out there who are thinking about building one or having one built. While my license is in the state of Alabama, garages are pretty much standard but I will try to answer any questions you may have.

So I will add a few pictures as we go along giving you a few particulars along the way so that you can kinda see a cost associated with these items.


The "Garage" is 42' wide by 30 ' deep. The walls are 12 foot high. The back area is for my boys to shoot basketball and it is 20 x 20. Total amount of concrete used on both slabs was 35 yards since I poured the garage floor thicker than 4" since I will be putting a lift in at a later time.

Thanks Carrot. Siding is now on along with the roof, most of the wiring has been completed and I have a few air lines to run and that will be completed as well.

Grading was completed last week and the driveway was poured last Friday. The weather has not been all that good to take pictures but I will try and update this thread with pictures this afternoon.

Since the garage doors are not Standard 7 ' heights, as I went with 8' heights since my truck has a 6" lift on it , they are special order and are taking a couple of weeks to get. The doors ar 10' wide with the door in the middle being 16' wide. This will allow for ease of movement in and out of the garage if I have to trailer anything plus putting my boat inside will be easier with wider doors.

NORM ( Reminds me of Cheers) well except you are 180 pounds lighter. You are so correct, Dr Jkel, Mr Hyde ( Hopefully Soon) Skeeter the boat and the Vette will be in the Garage. I am trying to decide if on one end to buy a 4 post lift for storage purposes or not.

I still have enough space for 3 cars at the house so I am good now for all my stuff.

One end will have a lift to work on cars, and the Firebird is first in line depending on Mr. Hyde's outcome, it may have to be finished first.

I will post some updated pictures this afternoon.

OH YEAH ROLL TIDE ROLL. Now you see why my car is RJT no other color would do. Of course Mr. Hyde is roughly the same color as well

I am a Season Ticket Holder so if you make it down this year for a game let me know and we can meet up. Roll Tide. Amen

OK here are some update picture of the progress of the garage. Siding is completed, gutters installed, driveway laid, rough electrical ran, rough air lines ran. Some exterior lighting installed. Coming together. Enjoy.

Driveway has 40 yards of concrete.

Hey that's looking great. Here we pay about $85 a yard for concrete (average). Did you run power out of the house to the garage?

John I could pick your brain over "building" how-to's all day.

I paid 72.00 a yard for the concrete. I used a total of 90 yards on the entire project. I set up a different service since it would cost he Power Co too much to run the main line.It is on the left side of the building, not hooked up yet but the meter can is there. They ( Alabama Power) require that they run that, plus it would have to go underground and it was more cost effective for them to just run it from the street on the back of our house.

Any questions you have I will gladly answer about building as I have been building since I was 15, so I have a little bit of experience but always learning. That is why I like this section so much, hopefully people can learn alot from it as well as me with new ideas.

It did not hurt that I build houses and deal with them alot.

Looking DAMN fine sir.....

Glad that they created this forum as well. I've always wanted a more intimate (read: 60' x 40') Shop/Garage/Cave of Awesomness.

In for the project. Great luck and keep up the good work.

Thank You, Finally decided to make me a nice garage for my things.

The garage doors should be in 8 days so will start the drywall at the beginning of next week. Don't want to start too early since it has been raining a pretty good bit.

I do have some plans for the inside that I think will be kinda neat as well. Really trying to decide on the floor right now between Epoxy Coating that resists chemicals.

Since I put a drain in the floor and sloped the floor to the drain it would be rather difficult to put a "flooring" down like tile or something like that. I figured a drain was much more worth it that the top care. So if I go with an Epoxy Coating I can paint it on and it will last a LONG time and it has a high gloss finish as well.

You got a drain in the floor???? How great is that!! A.J.'s going to be hitting your garage up for some clean up so his Vette won't look (as) trashed as it did at the last clinic!

Yeah Norm I broke weak and put a drain in the floor. After watching AJ's video's and freezing my butt off in the winter trying to keep my cars clean.

I decided when I started that a drain was a MUST have in the new garage.

I think once it all comes together it will be really nice. May take a little while to get it exactly like I want with the cabinets, lift, wall "Stuff" and all. But it should be pretty cool.

Kelley's Uncle who passed away was a rabid Nascar fan and had some hoods at his place that I will be placing on the walls, well after they get "Adamized"
plus some other old pictures of cars that I think will be nice as well. Then I have a few " Special" cough touchesCrimson Tide Stuff that will be going in there as well plus some special secret surprises from some of my friends for some added wall treatments.
