The Two Story, what was I thinking, garage

Post by speedtalk » Mon Nov 04, 2013 1:53 pm

I thought I'd prime this garage tech forum with some photos of my garage. If I had it to do over again, I'd build a simple post construction garage. Anyway, here's what I started with…

More photos to come.

If you've got photos of your garage build, please create a new thread. I'm sure I'm not the only one that would love to see 'em.

How do you keep the basement from filling up with what ever falls from the sky? I know how much it snows in Michigan .

Nothing. I was stupid and sold the engine before finishing its replacement.

There's a drain down at the bottom. I'll post a photo… when the snow melts.

That is really nice. Just noticed this was in Michigan.
I am in the process of doing some stuff with my garage as well. One of them being getting some gas out there. I can't do anything with how cold it's been and I'm tired of refilling propane.

I thought it was a house too. A garage made to look like a house? Looks really nice; and looks like to it took a lot longer to finish and probably went over budget by X3.
