Vinnie’s garage

Vinnie,

Forget the lift...the car looks awesome especially like the black vinyl top with it. Congrats

Little update on my garage here :-)

Put first few beams in:

Starts to look like a floor:

And the stairs leading to it are coming along nicely too:

Finally some good progress :-)

Nice job.
Still I think you should have considered a lift. It's epensive but it's the best investment you can ever make. I had a second floor poured in concrete in my garage when I built the house and it took me 13 years to finally have it cut out so I could install a lift.
I wish I'd done so earlier.
Your garage is extraordinary as it is hard to find a space that's high enough to accept a lift in the first place.

But I like your craftmanship there. Looks really good.

Thanks guys!

Lux: the floor is 4 metres up, I made it that high so that a lift with a car on top at its highest position still fits underneath. So I think there will be a lift in the future, don’t worry ;-)

Nice progress Vinnie!
Aside a lift, may be keeping an opening to lift parts upstairs could be handy as well.
I mean, bringing a rear bumper or head cylinders for/from storage on this stair 4 meters high with no hands free,
could become a performance on itself...

Its gonna be awesome to work/enjoy the hobby in such spacy clean garage!

Few more days of work, one of them with my 72 year old dad which was cool (and made him happy) coz he used to be a carpenter.

Stairs are now finished and all the beams are in place:
