  1. The new chapter has begun. It took us almost 8 years to get a garage, but here we are. I started moving my stuff into the new garage.I had to just throw stuff wherever. I need to organize and then I can start the work on the Buick back up. Can't wait!
  2. Not much has happened over the last week and a half. Final trimout of the electrical work was completed. Still waiting on the power company to run their line to the meter.Also, started moving things into the new garage...which means finally saying goodbye to the good old carport. It served it's purpose and I am glad that I had it, but I am not sad to see it go.
  3. Garage door installed today.Now, the only thing left is electrical. The power company still needs to run their cable and then final trimout will be done.
  4. Here's the recess that I was talking about @MrEarl.
  5. Thank you Mr Lamar! I do plan on insulating, drywalling the walls and ceiling at some point (just not right now). I will take you up on your suggestion to look up the garage journal forum. I would have liked to have an eave on the front gable side, but that would mean more money. However, the company did provide a recess in the concrete slab along the entire length if the front opening where the garage door rests at. This will keep the rain water from seeping into the floor area. I will post a photo to show what I am talking about. I do have a couple ideas for Buick signs and ornaments.
  6. Roofing done...just in time for potential rain this weekend with whatever is left from Hurricane Laura.
  7. More progress today and I was able to walk around in the attic!
  8. There is a direct path from the road to this garage. There is a slight interference with a tree, but I can steer around it with no issue. This tree will be removed soon anyway.
  9. Trusses installed and much of the exterior done.Showing the attic space here.
  10. I stand in the middle of the garage thinking the same thing!
  11. First day of framing. I walked around and inside. I feel good about what we chose to do so far.
  12. Building materials came in for framing, which should begin this Monday (depending on weather).
  13. 9 feet is the highest I can go while having a good amount of attic space. I can get a 2 post lift into the garage. There's a set call MaxJax portable car lift. It only lifts a car at a max of 49" into the air. To remedy the moving under the car with ease, there is a reclining creeper on the market. This reclining creeper can lay flat when needed and can sit you in a more upright position while supporting your bottom. I can roll around in this and work reasonably comfortably. At least, that is the theory. There's more than one way to skin a cat, and I have to make the most of what I hav
