That's a good looking place you've got there. Can't wait to see what the inside looks like as it all comes together.

Looking good. There is a place in Bald Knob that sells salvage metal at good prices. They may have the beam that you are looking for. I can get the number if you are interested.

Perfect working size garage, I like the spit side for doing body work and such too. Something I've always wanted, but, with your lay out you can do without sacrificing too much.

Just a quick update, added some Stainless Steel cabinets salvage from a Hospital that was closing. Moved the 47inch LCD from the house to the spot I framed for it along the stairway wall. Added a Bose Sound system that I got on a trade for a Holley carb. Leather couch is for the upper level but since that is not done we moved the party to the lower level. Everything was set for the Daytona 500 that never started. Had a great time with some good friends anyway.

Very nice build, really looking good! Did you find the stainless cabinets on Craigslist or how did you come across them? They sure look sharp, as does all of your aluminum trim work. Great job!

wow! nice build! I really like the stainless cabinets also. The outside looks great with the brick and I think thats the route I will go on my garage in the future.

Nice score on the cabinets! Those would cost a FORTUNE new. Whole shop looks great.

Thanks it has been a lot of fun building it. Lots of family and friends helped out. The brick was one of the few things I did not do myself. That is a skill reserved for those with talent.

I had found some old wooden cabinets and then these came up. I think I ended up getting them for less then what the guy could have scrapped them for had he taken them to the scrap yard. It was a good day of picking.

I went with the Legacy products. Good folks to work with and the floor looks great. It super nice to clean up spills, oil spots etc. Cost a little bit more than the off the shelf stuff but had no issues by following their recommendations.

I work at a hospital and I met a guy when he was picking up scrap from some remodeling. I mentioned that I would really like to score some SS cabinets. I did not hear from him for about 6 months and then one day he called and said he was working at another hospital and might have what I was looking for. Just got lucky on these, good to be a scavenger sometimes.

Got a few questions ... What dimension lumber is used on the bottom cord of the attic trusses? What size is the right-side garage door where you will install your lift? The photo that shows the O/H door in the lift bay also shows what appears to be shiny material between the rafters and the roof sheathing ... what is that material ... or is it my imagination?? Last question ... how did you go about getting the structural truss and truss support system designed?
Hey John in OH sorry I never replied somehow I missed your questions. On the trusses I went to a truss builder and told him what I wanted. He had a cad program that he just entered in the dimensions and it did the design. I live in an area that has very few building codes so I did not need an architect to approve. I did call one and he basically told me that since there was no code what the truss guy had designed was fine. The bottom cord is a 2x8. After all of that when I got done the loft area did feel a bit spongy and since I wanted to use it for storage I went ahead with my back up plan of adding the beam. The beam serves two purposes one it made the upper floor stop popping and two I put a trolley on it so I can pull engines, unload stuff from the truck etc. The O/H door for the lift bay is 8 tall by 10 wide. The ceiling material is corrugated plastic from Lowes. I thought it would be easy to keep clean and a lot easier than trying to finish drywall at that height. I finished all of the trim with vinyl siding trim that I bent up on my four foot brake. Let me know if you have any other question I would be happy to share what did and did not work.
