Well here is a few udpated pic's of my garage/shop I'm building... In the past 2 weeks I have put in water line, electrical line, 100' of drains, gutters, and concrete! Whew.... I'm ready for a break.
At least it is to the point I can work on finishing the interior this winter. I am going to be ordering the lift in a couple of weeks.

Hey AlanTa, Nice pictures. We are building almost identical garages. How do you plan to cover the walls and how about heat??

Thanks, The front shop area i'm going to use white metal like what's on the outside for the ceiling and some of the walls (car wash area). The "garage" area and the rest is probably going to be sheet rocked. I might use some of that slotted board for hanging stuff in some of the shop area.

I'm going to just put an electric furnace in the shop area and insulate all the walls and ceiling good. The shop area is going to be 20x40 and the "showroom garage" area is going to be 40x40.

I'm going to epoxy the shop floor and use black and white checkered tile on the garage.

Post some pics of yours when you get them!

Hi AlanTa, Thanks for the quick reply.. At my age I barely can turn on the computer. I have taken pictures with a camera but I have no idea how to get them here from there. Your choice of outside colors and inside work is unnerving. Almost the same outside for mine and I covered the ceiling with white metal roofing. I put stringers every two feet on the walls for insulation but I was still up in the air about covering. I am not sure what the slotted panels are.. Rich:

Sounds like he's talking about 'slat wall board' like you see in parts dept show rooms. They have a cut in groove running the length of the sheet of hardboard that you can put display shelving or hooks for merchandise.

I have a 30 X 40 insulated shop, a 26 X 30 attached car garage and the wife and I just put up a 30 x 45 cold storage building for car storage and tractor last weekend. I was going to build a 42 X 84 steel building for storage but opted for a fabric covered building instead. Only took 3 days to put up, has a stone chip floor, has a 15 ft ceiling that I can put in a mezz for parts and tire storage later.

This is the garage (On the left) where the "Z" resides. It's small, but it's got electricity, heat, air, water & Phone.

EDIT

ok here are more pics. I made some changes since I posted this thread (who woulda thunk it lasted this long?)

here's the update

Before



After



Me and my dad made the workbench and the backboard ourselves. Then I painted the backboard almond with red flames and pinstriped the edges black. Hung up some tools and it already looks a bit better than bare wood.
