After a long journey, I'm happy to report I finally took delivery of my GT3RS yesterday. I was sadly one of the victims related to the Shiraaz/Champion Porsche fall out but I must admit, they stepped up and made things right for me. In conclusion to that chapter, I'm glad its over and I'm happy with the outcome. I hope all of the other victims have the same conclusion to report.
So to come full circle with this story, early 2018, I finally broke down and decided to build a new garage for my car to be delivered late 2018, early 2019. Design started in March, 2018, construction began around the middle of June, 2018. I had photos and pic's of things I had collected for years, of which I wanted to somehow incorporate into my space. Yard was an obstacle and compromise had to be made on size. I ultimately decided on a 38'x29' space. I'm subsequently a commercial contractor so allot of thought was put into operating cost, longevity and obviously my taste for appearance. Foundations were probably an over kill but I wanted to make sure things set on a solid footing. Walls were constructed with 2x6 studs @ 16" centers. Front wall was constructed with 2x10 due to the clearstory ribbon window setting directly over the garage doors, hence I wanted to distribute the load to (3) 18" LVL's per door opening. Walls, Floors (elevated desk) & roof framing all have closed cell foam insulation, 5/8" gyp board. Concrete slab is 8" thick reinforced with WWF & fiber. No cracking what's so ever. I highly recommend fiber for those on the fence about it. Floor has been polished and stained to a natural grey concrete finish. Hot water is provided by a tank less hot water unit in a mechanical room below, A little natural stone accent on the exterior, slate roofing, copper gutters, board & batt siding (very affordable) with translucent stain and an exposed concrete driveway.
I'm pleased with the outcome and happy to finally share with the Rennlist community.
Spectacular garage.
My favorite part - You have one chair and a dog bed sitting there, What else does a man need in his space but one chair and mans best friend!! haha

I love the back wall & your roof framing. Do you still have all 3 cars? Sweet for sure.

I did it....It was not a huge ordeal but not a small one either. There is a lot of structural things that have to be thought out. For a good contractor it is easy. I raised it 3 ft and also had to do garage door rail adjustments. That was one piece of the puzzle....

I will say this....measure once, twice, 3 times and more if things are tight....my project worked off of inches and came out perfect. The biggest measurement was taking into consideration a car on the lift (backed up). A car underneath and the garage door being able to be opened so it does not hit the car on top....seems like a trivial concept but far from it

I’ve raised the rails and it was not a big deal. Raising the ceiling is a whole another project. Raising rails cost me like 500 bucks for two single bat garage doors.

if you are raising the ceiling, one thing to consider- just do a pocket where the roof of the car is. Much smaller project and I would think easier than raising the whole roof. You just space for the roof of the car to go up.

Good luck.

I recently sold my warehouse in order to have all of my “stuff” in one place. I decided a barn on the property is my best bet. Here is the most recent pics. Trusses went up Friday. Won’t be done til April but should be incredible when it’s completed. Going to have 7 garage doors and be all cedar inside and out. Fully Air conditioned and heated and will have a nice loft. Can’t wait! 50x90.

OK guys, these aren't the latest pics (roof and walls done; will update photos soon). 45 X 70, 20 foot ceiling ht., with large mezzanine. Going with in-floor radiant heat. So 2-inches of insulation with a 5-inch pour. Going to diamond polish. Planning on 3/4 inch relief cuts in the concrete, but undecided if I want to fill the cuts with epoxy. Thoughts?
