I planning on breaking ground on my new Garage/Shop in June 08.
I thought I would start a thread here and update it as the project progresses.
Right now I am in the design phase so comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
First, I am posting a picture of a gas station that is the inspiration of my design:
I am planning on a 24' X 48' building with a 19' X 14' drive through. It will have a 10ft. ceiling throughout and the garage doors will be 8' X 8' (Edited 1/6/08 to 9ft wide by 8 ft high)
Here is rough sketch of my plan:
Here is my floor plan so far:
The room on the east will be for my "Clean/Dirty" work area. Sanding, painting, etc. I will have no tools or furniture in that room so it can be cleaned out easily.
The 3 rooms in the back from left to right will be the bathroom, compressor & dust collector room and the beadblaster & parts washer room. The rest of the area will be the main work area.
