Your lift sketch appears to be like the one George has at MGW. It was pretty compact and handy

Chris - Just a thought but since I am building a garage and will be putting a lift I had a friend come over and talk about what I wanted.

A 4 post would be nice if I was willing to buy the attachmens to lift the car off the drive on ramps- downside added cost.

He suggested I check some local places that might be upgrading their shops and could buy a lift relatively cheaper than new. I missed a 2 post for 900.00 by 2 hours. Guy just needed a bigger lift for trucks.

I talked with Vengeance as they only have 2 post lifts and they suggested unless I would be using it for storage purposes 2 post would do just fine.

Just some food for thought.

Hey guys a developer here in San Diego is going to build 17 homes just for gearheads. One level house with the option of buying from a four car garage up to eight. It is very tempting to look into buying one. Of course the fourth garage is for the work bench and the refrigerator for Tequila & Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would love a two post but the way I had to configure my garage it would be set in the middle of the two car... making it a one car...

At least with a 4 post I can move it around and stash it on one side when not in use and move it to the middle for when I need to work on stuff...

OK I see what you mean, Luckily for me mine my second garage is un-attached and I can just leave it. I struggle with it either way. If I go with a 4 post then I can store a car underneath, especially since I have 12' walls.

I think each has an advantage and dis-advantage. When I poured my floor I poured it thick on the part where my lift would be going so that I could mount it permanently. Decisions, Decisions.........

This is the one at the house. It is a commercial grade unit used by many, many professionals. The additional items that really help are the casters to wheel it around and the jack plate (goes between the rails and slides the full lenght of the lift). You can get a simple oil change setup from Harbor Freight or somewhere like that. A lot cheaper than a fancy built-in one.

Will make working on Stacey's stuff nicer... Oh yeah, and maybe THR22 when we get done with Randy's car and the SST...

Chris if you can choose go with a post tension cable slab after pouring the slab they will come out every other day for a week and crank down on the cables therefore you wont have any slab movement down the road.


I'm in the middle of having a house built as we speak ( 1 month left ) I am 2 weeks from the start of my 36x36 detached shop.
If you can push the foam insulation I would highly recommend it as my parents have this and it is VERY MUCH dam near perfect for insulating.
I'm having the attic and inner walls in my house blown and im having the walls and ceiling in my ship blown as well. 14 Ft high ceilings for me. One day down the road maybe next tax season I will add a lift.



Building a house has to be the most stressful thing ever imo.
I swear I could Beat the $hit out of my project manager

Good luck man keep updating this thread lol

I never knew we had this thread.

Our build process was actually stress free. We went with a well known custom builder in the north Fort Worth area. The owner of the business was my main point of contact during the whole thing, no middle man. I could call him at any time. Even picking the tile, carpet, granite slabs, llight fixtures and ceiling fans was pretty easy.

When I signed the paper work on the contract to build my home I loved who I had as a project manager. We exchanged lots of e-mails and everything was moving along perfect.
2 days before the slab was poured my project manager was let go along with 8 others due to the company going in a different direction.

Now I got a gentleman who deosnt even read the contract/plans and everytime something shows up wrong we go back to look at the plans and its like OHHHHHH oops I didnt see that.

For some time now my line to him is

" who are you building this home for me ? Or you "

Luckily we are dam near finished as I have 1 month left....we are at ceiling and water fixtures as we speak then they have to come in and polish and seal my stained concrete area's and ETC.

if he had just read the plans all along then we would never have had problems.


I'm 30 but dont look my age some folks say lol I think he is looking at it like oh some young kid I can screw around WRONG BUDDY.

oh well.... atleast he isnt building the shop which starts in two weeks.

OVER ALL IM VERY HAPPY WITH HOW IT IS COMING OUT.


JUST NOT LOOKING FWD TO MOVING.

GTAHVIT... Couple of little things to think about which shouldn't be too late to ask about.
Soffit outlets at each corner in the front with a switch inside the front door. Great addition for hanging christmas lights.
Decor style light switches. Really enhance the looks of the walls. It only cost me $250 more for all the switches in the house.
Floor outlet in the living room.
Def a 220v outlet in the garage.
Water Softener
Under cabinet lighting in the kitchen.
Door jam light switches for the pantry and closets
Ceiling fan for back porch.


Jekyll-N-Hyde... That had to suck. Thank god it is almost done. Have you looked into a local moving company to move the big stuff? We hired a place to move all our big stuff a whopping five miles. Took them about six hours and cost us around $300 is all. Was worth every penny.

I had a plug outlet put at each corner of my house directly under my eves for the Xmas lights and I also had 2 DEDICATED outlets 1 in the house garage For a Freezer and one on the outside of the house Garage for my Gate opener.

these dedicated outlets are dedicated circuits that are supplying power to only one or perhaps two receptacles.
I'm also going to have two of these inside my outside Garage. Overloading a circut SUCKS. down the road when I install a lift I want everything like the compressor on its own circut.


Inside the house I had a outlet put below the bathroom counters so I can plug my electric trimer/etc in underneith and keep it out of site. On top of the Cabinets in the kitchen there are plugs for lighting thats control by a switch.


On the moving im actually closing the first of June and during the whole month of June im going to be moving stuff in slowly then at the last of june im going to have a moving day set aside for everything else.

Since the house wont be ready until mid 1st week of june I will have already paid the house payment for my current home im living in so Im telling the folks who are buying it they can have it 1st of July. Thats gives me pleanty of time during june to do anything to the new home before I move in and still not have to rush as much moving.
