    My advise is bigger is better. Go as big as you can afford within reason... I chopped 5 feet off the back side when in the plans stage and I wish I did not. I ended up with 30 X 40, air-conditioned. It helps to have a daily-driver garage also for the dirty stuff.
    ALSO,
    As much light as you can fit. I have about 14 4-bulb t8 units and it is just perfect.
    The "I" beam was a great idea. I used to borrow/rent engine hoist (what a pain in the ass). The I-beam was about $400. plus four cases of beer for the Block Guys to put it up when they were doing the walls. The two-ton trolley was $70.00. Good investment from a convenience standpoint if I have to pull a motor.
    I am still researching lifts. Not sure which one to go with. Leaning towards Revolutions Lift.

    Jason,
    That garage is awesome!!

    I am in the begining stages of designing my garage.
    I dont have as much area to play with, mine will be about 30X30 (maybe a little less).
    Love the I beam set up, what is the span of it? I really dont want a post in the center of my garage if I can avoid it.
    Also are the walls cinder block?
    How high is the ceiling? I am thinking of going 12 ft.
    I am leaning towards the revolution lift as well.
    The french doors are a nice touch too...I have a pool beside the garage, those would be perfect to get to the pool.
    Once again ....very nice set up.
    Cheers,

    Thanks,
    The span is 30 foot that the I beam crosses. There is a website somewhere that tells you the size I-Beam you need for a given span. If interested email me and I will see what I can do to find it. The garage is block construction. I would go 12' if I could, but since my existing house had lower roofline, I could not go higher then 10' ceiling without things looking funny.

    A customer of mine is involved with www.autolift.org
    They certify lifts for safety, etc...
    Check out the site.
    www.autolift.org

    He mentioned that Revolution makes a good lift, and that is what did it for me.

    Thanks,

    Re: Post your garage pic\'s please !!!

    While not movable after installation, if anyone is looking for garage flooring options a step higher than RaceDeck, the quartz composite tile that Griot’s sells is made/distributed by a company out of Toronto called Stone Marketing & Design Services. The web site for the Griots tile specifically is:

    http://www.quarella.com/diamastone/index.htm

    The product is called DiamaStone. If you click on the Products link, the actual tile is the Monochromatic line. I haven’t seen the shipping and import costs yet, but the per tile cost is significantly lower than Griots and Griots charges FULL shipping on this item from Toronto.

    I added a Revolution lift also. Do a search on Revolution lift. I believe Jerry Dobson is the dealer. Revolution is one of the only ones ULI certified.

    Than ran a great special for these. I think 3K delivered with extended ramps & jack stands.

    Re: Post your garage pic\'s please !!!

    Some good ideas here. I am also in the beginning stage of building a garage that will be 34 wide X 50 Deep and 12 high using a 10 X 9 and 18 X 9 door(s), next to that will be a RV garage that will be 20 wide X 50 deep and 16 high with a 12 X 14 door
    The 9' high doors are an idea I got from someone on this forum. These allow me to put the trailer inside the garage if I want to. Looking for any ideas on something that must be included that I may have forgotten.
    I also have a Superior 4 post lift that I have had for several years.
    OH Yeah , there will also be a house attached.

    Re: Post your garage pic\'s please !!!

    TwinVipers, I use Valspar floor paint. It is a two part paint. It is about $38 a gallon. Dirt cheap. I have painted that floor three times. Yes the paint sticks to the paint below. There is paint out there that costs $150 gallon, but Valspar works just fine.


    BadVenm, I am planning on changing my Avatar to a Viper and F40. Maybe I will throw in a Diablo and Gallardo just for you. There is talk of an Enzo too :) Poser?

    Re: Post your garage pic\'s please !!!

    Yes it is a two part Epoxy Paint. It is not water based. I buy it at Lowe's. As with any floor paint, if you want it to stick, don't allow the builder to seal the concrete if new. If you are doing old concrete, etch it first with Muratic Acid.

    Once the paint is on the floor, to re-paint, I just mop it real clean and re-paint. No etching. So far it has been three years since the first coat went down.

    Some complain that there should be no reason to repaint. Let me come by and work in your shop. Welding splatter and spilled fluids and paint will mark up a floor. Re-paint is required to have a floor like mine. I mop my garage once a week or more.

    Is it sad that the first thing I saw in the girl/car picture was the handprint on the door?

    MadMaxx.... Good eye. That hand print was from another girl. I will get kicked off the site if I post that picture. BadVenm... you know that picture I showed you of my girl from Sweden?

    THAT'S MORE LIKE IT!!!!!

    Unlike the Lotus, F-40's, Lambo's and Enzo's I know she is for real and actually in your garage, a lot! I've seen her there and seen some pic's of her on your GTS I know you can't post here!!!

    I ain't haten' your friends rides, I just want to ride your girlfriend!

    I'm haten' cuz I want to grow up and be like you! :D

    And that floor of Jerry's can be eaten off of any time you walk in! (no not the girl thing you all are thinking of!)
