Hmm.. I have red on order but was going to switch to black after seeing your WP one. But that red, yum!

Second this request if possible. This is excellent quality. I don't know what it is, but a slate roof and copper gutter array gets me all tingly.

vodavoda? Waterwater?
I filled mine with a flex latex caulk color matched. Easier to clean. If cuts are near perfect could use contrasting colour for aesthetics

Both colors looked great. I think the red accents the lines of the car more, but you can't ever go wrong with black.

I certainly will. Give me a little time to gather them. I appreciate the compliments.

What are the specifics on the 964 Turbo for sale?

This is one of fav. threads on Rennlist. Post more pics Gents!

I have been following this thread for a long time and have used it as inspiration. I'm almost finished with my humble 3 car garage. Will post pics soon.

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.




Very well done. Our garages are very similar in many ways. I really love the exterior architecture too - hint of a nod to old Germany... fitting. Congrats and glad it all worked out with Champion.

Did you do any relief cuts in your concrete?

^ there are relief cuts, you can see faintly. the polishing guys often fill them up with soft putties.

Default Concrete/Cuts/Surface/etc.

Photos from ~June '18...
Thanks to Mooty and osu s2K...Built a little 4,500sq. ft. shop, with an addition going on the N. side this summer so that I can park my latest hobby: Peterbilt 379. I don't like new Porsches so I am getting into big trucks.
Poured 6-8" last winter CO cold, erected tent over 4,500 ft shop, heated under water for 30 days...Slab is cut in sections, but then filled with something special that is "soft" and malleable (sp?) but the stuff bonds to it like concrete. Polished the floor and Industrial urethaned it multiple times 4? or 6? cannot remember. heated under concrete on one side only where I work in the shop. you cannot see the sections in the floor.

I had a business with 500,000 sq. ft shop 10 years ago and I will never-ever do epoxy again.
