Default Accel Junky's 3-Car Attached Plus (Eventually) Detached Build

Last spring my wife and I put our first house for sale and I stowed my NSX in a safe place I refer to as "the bat cave".

Originally I wanted a handful of acres but reality set in and we settled on something with a cozy sized lot with some pre-approval by the HOA and city for future expansion plans.

My build will take place in 2 phases:

Phase 1 is the attached 3 car garage.
Phase 2 will be a detached bonus garage. (Ultimately for phase 2 the attached garage will become a showroom-only "museum-like" space whereas my projects and extra vehicle/tool/lawn equip storage will be located in the detached garage. That detached garage will be either a deep 2 car or a normal depth 3 car with some provisions for a lift, hiding my lawn equipment, and maybe some office space.)

But for now my phase 1 garage will have to serve dual purposes as the showroom and a working garage.

Here's how it looks fresh:

And...

Here's what the old one looked like before I painted the walls prior to selling it:

Those mock ups are killer. I can't imagine how cool they would be in reality.

Crimson with tan floors looks killer! I love how there's a separate garage door for the NSX. Drool

The garage floor guy started with the project to put down a polyaspartic (the slab was too oddly colored to stain like planned...or so he said). To be honest I'm deeply disappointed with how the color came out. He's got one coat left to do but I doubt that will change it. I picked a dark grey and it is looking like a dolphin blue color. I looked at hundreds of dark grey garage floors online and everything looked exactly like I wanted. Now that it is under way...it is turning out bad. I'd take an orange floor over this color any day. I guess I'll just have to suck it up and start saving for Racedeck tiles or something of I ever want to be happy walking in and working in my garage. Very Expensive mistake...

Any way to top coat it a different color?

Not sure. Materials already purchased.

Also I'm wondering if the floor will look smooth when done...it's a new slab after all...

Give it time. You may be happy with the color once it has dried. I had the same issue with a room I painted a few years ago. I didn't like the color going on, but let it dry, and went back the next day and it was exactly like I picked out.

Looks like you have a nice open canvas to work from. Nice ideas on the murals. Planning to do a vinyl print for those, or?

However, I can't believe your gas water heater is located on the floor. Code usually requires any sources of combustion to be located at least 18" above floor level to avoid a chance of ignition of collected combustible fumes, i.e. gas, oil. Last thing anyone would want would be to damage such a nice collection of vehicles, as well as your residence. Forgive me if there is already a stand under the heater as it's hard to see in your pics.

The polyaspartic was dry about 10 hours before those last 2 pics.

NSX pics coming soon. As for the water heater it is on the floor. At our last house it was elevated too. Our inspector is one of the best in the business and didn't say anything so my assumption is that somehow it is within code but I'll check. There's a parking pole that goes in front of it.

Here's the final job on the polyaspartic floor. Pics taken without direct sunlight blasting on it. Still looks bluish but the finish is glossier and smoother so I like that.
