Garage building 101

As some of you may be aware I haven't had time to finish my truck project, yet alone get started on the Deuce or Max Wedge Polara projects. However, the reason I haven't been working in the garage is that I've been busy building a new one. My wife is making me build a house to go along with it, but the garage is all mine

This should give me enough room to get all my projects inside and out of the weather. The doors are 18 x 8. Front half is 25' deep and the back half (shop) is 45' deep. The shop will have a vaulted ceiling and a four post lift as well. Roof goes on next week and we'll hopefully be moving in next March.

The entire house/garage build can be accessed from my site (link below my signature).

Rub it in Doc, rub it in.

Nice shop. I can't wait to get a concrete floor, or a roof.

I have one of those tube/tarp canopys set up in the driveway! Much nicer than the bare driveway but still only 2% as nice as Centerline's place.
