lol that's the first thing everyone asks me ..

But the way I did it was we leveled the building approx. 12 or so inches above the ground then with a bobcat dug out the dirt we needed to actually level the floor. reason I did it was because my property is on an uneven slope and I wanted a concrete curve all around the floor going up to the bottom of the building. We could of done it differently but it worked out pretty good. Floor is 4" thick, posts are 4ft. into the ground with concrete and curve is approximately 6" high all the way around the shop floor.

Ok I gotta ask what size shop is that ? My slab was poured saturday and we are waiting for it to cure or whatever he called it. They are going to start today or tomorrow building it.


ITs gonna look simular to yours but with one large door for two cars and another which will only fit one car through the door way.

Looks great. I like the overhang like a porch. That's how I did my 24x40. Building then concrete.

A lift would me sweet! Maybe someday we can both have one!

Great space man! I love it! That front porch will come in handy, really sets if off!

Space? Never enough! It just seems like the bigger it is the more stuff we come up with to put in it. Of course it never helps that the wives just love to hoard their junk in our garages!

Great looking garage! I started mine on May 27 and hope to finish the shingles on the south side of the roof tomorrow. I built mine 22X30. I like the idea of the porch in front of the door. I'll probably set one up on mine.

Congratulations on the garage!
