Can't I use a wood treatment or tar-seal of some kind to keep some of the fumes downstairs though? I'm hoping there will be a way I can seal off the upstairs completely, that's why I need a good exhaust system too. Only problem with that is in the winter time, it's going to make it hard to get fumes out of the shop and still insulate for the cold. Thanks for the input though guys, there's obviously alot I have to learn about this.

Awesome shops guys! (and rides) Both look well organized and well lit. As for the loft / fumes issue, I would think that the addition of a vapour barrier and proper taping of the drywall joints, it would work out just fine.

Mooch...like Gearhead stated, put up a vapor barrier and properly finish off the drywall. Also make sure you have an exterior door if the door that leads up the stairs is going to be on the inside. An exterior door has all the seals that will keep out the fumes etc. Meaning it is sealed with rubber all around.

OK, here it goes:

After wiring and insulation, take heavy mil poly, and do the walls. Then take poly and do the ceiling. TAPE all joints, especially around windows, doors, and perimeter of ceiling/wall joint. Then apply Fire rated drywall. Tape and finish.

You will also want to rubber-isolate any garage door openers w/ rubber as the noise will transmit through the structure.

Upon completion, liberally apply alcohol to your stomach.

(Ya know, I should really read ALL the posts before replying.)



Sorry guys

Mooch...You could also consider the spray in foam insulation. That would seal all the nooks and crannies that you have plus insulate at the same time. http://www.thermalsealexperts.com/

Mooch..... I understand your needs, but really hate it when someone wants to use all of that good stroage/work space for living space.

Sorry.... I really miss my last 2 garages. 22X26 Barn Type. Full Upstairs (13 X 26) for wood shop plus storage on both sides and in the rafters.

Our other option would be to move into an apartment for a year or two until we're both out of school and getting further into our careers. Till then, the mustang would have to stay at my folks place. The more I put this down on paper and sit with a calculator, the more I'm starting to realize that building our own place now isn't going to be easy, no matter what it is.

This sucks, I need to hurry up and get my degree. Thanks for the advice though guys, there's alot here I didn't factor in, like the fumes and cost of insulation isn't cheap.

Mooch-
Take it slow. At 24, you have plenty of time. Do yourself a favor. Live cheap for a few years and BANK it hard. Post a drawing of the dream garage in a few places for inspiration. It won't be long before you get that 60x100 building with heat and air, 4 lifts, and a 8 Babe pit crew! Hang in there! It'll happen if you focus !
