Default Rick's Audi Double

Hi everyone,
I thought I would introduce myself and post some photos of my garage. My name is Rick and I am an elementary school teacher from Calgary, Canada. My wife and I have been living in our new build for over a year and the garage is my pride and joy. It's a work in progress, but I'm pretty close to wrapping up all the major stuff. It's a standard builder's size garage with a 4' extension. Here she is in her early stages:

Great looking garage. Is the floor RaceDeck? How do you get the checkered look with all black tiles?

Now, this is really quite simple, ok? Understeer works like this: you drive down the road, turn the wheel, but the car goes straight on, crashes into a tree and you die. Oversteer works like this: you drive down the same bit of road, turn the wheel, but the back of the car comes round and you go off the road, crash into a tree and you die.

Now, oversteer is best, because you don't see the tree that kills you.

Very nice hangout indeed. On the wall you have a, what looks like a place to clip floor mats, as seen in image IMG_5596.jpg. Do you high pressure wash your vehicles inside the garage, and if so, do you have a floor drain?

Thanks for the comments, guys. Yes, the floor is RaceDeck. It's the Free Flow tile pattern. I believe it is the same style as Barrett-Jackson uses in the staging lanes at WestWorld. Each sqaure foot comes with the opposing 6"x6" staggered pattern. (Hope that makes sense) It does a fantastic job of trapping and keeping the winter guck. Yes, I do a bit of high pressure washing in my garage, but I don't usually use a lot of water. No floor drain. The RaceDeck floor does a good job of trapping the water and soap so I don't have much (if any) seepage out the front.

Thanks. I'm in the process of adding updated photos, but I'm having a few technical difficulties.

Great looking garage and great use of the space that you have!

How is the humidity in there after spraying water?

That is a stunning design. You should start a part time business in garage remodelling. I wish mine looked that nice!

Jumping over here from your comments on my thread. Our garage layout is very similar as you mentioned - although I do like your staircase better than mine. Due to the curved nature of mine - I have nearly killed myself a few times stepping past more than one step @ a time. Who was your home builder? Mine was Morrison homes - all in all a decent experience with a couple exceptions...

Excellent work!

Love the look of the racedeck. Did you have the builder rough-in (& install) your infrared heater? As I mentioned, that was a bit of an oversight on my part - although maybe something to consider for the future. How much do those units go for? Although my wife has been supportive (& very much hands on) in finishing our garage, some things may soon be veto'd soon - I'm sure. <insert sadface here>

It looks like you're stocked up to do some detailing - I'll drop off the Bimmer for you next time I get caught in a rainstorm!
