Re: Ima Newb, Your input welcomed! My 30x48 garage plan/ build / ?? thead

My foundation/concrete was $9900 for my 30x48. I have only a 3' apron along the front and a small step outside the back door. I liked having access to both ends of the building so that I'm not...

Re: Stem wall on top of slab, or slab poured between stem walls?

My garage build in the sig shows what you are talking about. It is 20" above the slab. The stem walls were built first and the slab poured inside them. You can see how it went together from the pics.

It is supposed to be a dressing room for the pool that is outside that back door. This was the wife's idea. If it were me I would have put a urinal on the wall and called it good enough. I do love...

Re: The start of my 30x48

Of coarse there is still work left to do. I have to finish trim in and on the stairway and install the propane heater. Over the winter I used a 240V heater and it worked ok but a more permanent...

Re: The start of my 30x48

I am sorry. I should maybe look back at this every now and then. I will post some updated pics this afternoon. The attic has become a bit of a catch all. Christmas decor, out of season clothes, etc....

Re: Help - Bendpak 4 post owners install question

I have a 9XW. I ran a 10/2 wire down the inside of the wall hooked to a 30a electric dryer outlet. The lift has a 10' 10/2 extension that plugs into the wall. I wanted it like this so that I could...

Same here. I bought a 75,000 BTU propane heater last year that is still sitting in the box taking up space. I've been doing some reading on here and it looks like heating with electric might be a...

Re: So I am going to look at some 4 post lifts tomorrow, what to ask?

Just to update this thread.

Re: The "DMR" Double Mustang Ranch

Very nice. I am also a little partial to the ponys. What's on the engine stand? Nice work it's a very clean design. The floor is especially nice.

Re: Electric resistance heated floor

Very interested too. I plan to install a tile floor in our master bathroom. It already has a very cold floor in the winter and the tile will probably make it worse.

Re: Reallly unhappy with Liftmaster 3800!

No. I don't think the cable tension sensor is doing what it should. I may need to start there.

The reason I didn't want to lower the spring pressure to have more downward weight is twofold. I...

Re: Garage insurance question

You could look into an umbrella policy which should cover anything you own. Last I checked to add an umbrella to my policy was only a couple hundred a year.
