Un-friggin' real. I cannot WAIT to see this!

So what are these pictures of? Maybe you need some automation with posting pictures so we know what it is we're looking at.

Those are steel beams that will hold the sliding glass doors which will cover all the shelves on the sides of the garage. I didn't want traditional cabinet doors that would open into the car. Sliding doors seemed to be a cool alternative. Because of the very long span, they decided to add steel beams to the wood.

Here's a few shots of the start of the copper pipes being run from the air tank area to and from the compressor.

Got the molds done for the concrete pour this past week. Now we have to wait 4 weeks before the epoxy coating can go on. This will be the longest 4 weeks of my life!

I'm TOTALLY blown away, home automation is one of the coolest inventions and the fact that you can control it all from your iPhone is so rad! I really need to do more research on this stuff, I had no idea it could control so many things! Very cool setup with the flatscreen to monitor your parking for lift use. Keep us updated, this is one of the coolest builds out there!

Garagejournal has RUINED me for good. First it started with epoxy floors, then vises, then vintage tools, then giant tool chests, then home/shop lifts, and now home automation! I used to think I would be perfectly happy without all this stuff!

Seriously, that home automation stuff is wicked cool. I wish I knew more about that sort of thing, I bet it's expensive to have installed.

You have a cyborg garage .
