It will have the far end sectioned off as a separate room for paint/ woodwork/ etc so I don't have to worry about the cars.

What are some things I should plan ahead for?

4.25" floor @3000# rating for a lift.
I have a 30 gallon compressor- that should do
I don't ever foresee the need for seating/ entertaining (downstairs at least)

After its built and you have everything you need in the man cave. So you think small refrigerator,lap top,at least 60 flat screen,counter with stools. just a small start.

This would be for a four post lift only.

If you know where you will place the lift - it wouldn't add much cost to poor some 18x18" 8-10" deep footers where the posts will sit - just for peace of mind.

Both solid ideas

Looking at some of these, I’m liking the thought of the lift in the back.

Badger hole

Just getting started really, But its good enough to work out of it for now. I added a man cave/office for a little more comfort.

Just condensed from two houses to one. Have plans in the works for a Morton building 40X48, with at least a 12’ ceiling for a lift. I’ll keep everyone updated on progress. Next stop, permits!
