Default New Garage Almost Done -- Yay!

It's been 6 months in the making and we're getting close. Has 3 double doors -- 1 door opens to an area to hold 2-3 on the ground and each of the other two doors opens to an area to hold 4 on the ground and 2 on lifts -- total of 14-15 with 4 on lifts. Thinking about doing 3 four post storage lifts and 1 two post service lift across the back wall.

Exterior brick will be painted white to match house as soon as mortar dries. Need to pick interior wall colors and flooring this week -- any ideas?

Yes -- has 6 fire sprinkler heads above the front bays and 4 on the interior wall to hit the rear bays where lifts will be.

Subscribed to this thread. I look forward to seeing the progress and the finished product, along with the vehicles that you will be parking in it.

What part of the country is this? You might want to fill out your profile so we will know. Very nice!

Looks really good, fits a lot more than it looks from outside (always a good thing).

I'd be trilled with 1/3 that space.

Very, very nice, but if it were me I think the brick would look a lot better unpainted. Maybe you should have the house bricked to match the garage. J/K

Sa-weet. Is there "living" space above the low part of the garage? Where the dormer windows are?

Beautiful plantation house too, I might add. Is it old or built to look old?

There is a large living space above the garage that will be the 'man cave' / office / bar / dog house (for me). It has a 24' x 30' area that includes an 8' x 12' full bath (with urinal of course) and an area for a walk behind bar that I haven't designed yet, then there's a 44' x 21' room that will have windows overlooking the garage. I'm designing this around around a desk that I'm building out of a 56 Thunderbird front end (see pic).

The main house dates to '84 and there's a 2001 addition on the other side from the garage (see pic).
