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.
