Re: New garage build with attached house :)

Unfortunately, no. I would look primarily at warranties and would expect a rubberized coating will probably hold up in the long run.

I don't think you need to worry about water infiltration so...

Re: building insulated, heated barn/garage

Sure. If you want to do that, I'd suggest having wall, hung like a door, that you can swing in and out of the opening and maybe stuff some insulation around the cracks to seal things up. You can...

Re: Threaded rod vs Anchor for lift install info

This stuff is not safe to use. You'll see the disclaimer on the right side of the page: " Not for overhead anchoring. Not for sustained long-term loads."

Epoxy is a funny thing and that it...

Re: New garage build with attached house :)

Nice house!

Do see a lot of ground water at the base of your concrete walls when its not raining? If not, then you should stay relatively dry except when it rains, which would probably make a...

Re: Framing nail question

If you are going to be framing with a soft wood, like pine, your gun and your nail are too small. You should be using a 16d 3 1/2" nail. I like using cement coated for framing.

Re: building insulated, heated barn/garage

It sounds like a pole barn is the type of thing you are after. Minimal foundation required.




I think you are on the limiting factor here. If you put an uninsulated barn door on an insulated...

Re: Garage door bottom seal ideas

If you have water coming in, it sounds like your sill is not sloped very aggressively or you don't have a dust lip molded in to your sill.

If that is the case, weatherstripping won't help the...

Re: Load Bearing Center Post Removal Help

In concept - yes, but the physics and engineering are more complex than you are assuming.

You will need two beams attached that form a "T" and at each outer point of that "T", you will need a...

Re: Concrete patch/filler product recommendations needed

Depending on the situation, you might also just put the pressure treated sill plate at an angle, cut your studs to match, and then just fill in the remaining void with the concrete filler.

Re: Air lines to a Bendpak four post lift

It looks like you have a mini split air conditioning system installed up high on the wall?

My garage is heated and if the concrete walls don't keep it cool enough in the summer, I'm thinking of...

Re: New Attached Garage - Design phase

I just built a garage in this exact same size and of a similar configuration. (Lifts aren't in, so no pictures yet.)



NO. It sounds like you are going to be in this place for a while - so as...

Re: anyone have a portable sink: no plumbing

You are very wise to be tackling this now. It's so non-standard that you could come up with a great design idea but get a nasty surprise when you get to engineering and actually building the thing....

Re: drive in or back in your garage?

Actually - we are missing a choice - we should probably all be considering turntables:

Re: drive in or back in your garage?

The engineering answer is that generally, a car with front wheel steering should always pull in to spaces forwards. (If you have a rear wheel drive vehicle, like a forklift, you'd want to pull in...

Re: Concrete

Nope. You could use 100 psi concrete and probably be fine. Compression is the least of your worries. With a truck on top of a stack of the blocks and the weight of the things themselves, the...

Re: Hoist to move cars between floors?

+1and +2. The lifts that you can park under typically won't be able to handle the loads of a car driving on/off when extended at height.

It's nowhere near that simple. Estimating on PSF is fine for a house with people and furniture, but the vehicle will put a point load on the floor. When architects and engineers size floors inside...

Re: Woman on Board!

This is a really low number and would be consistent with an unfinished space. (Not livable.) For a house you are going to live in, you should plan for something between $150 to $250 per square...
