Yes. When its level with the ground you don't even know its there. The video of this place is awesome. It uses the same hydraulic system as do aircraft carriers.

I saw a shop on the route the other day that made me salivate like Pavlov's dogs. 2 lifts, 12 foot doors, in floor heat, Storage and work space like you wouldnt believe. I should've taken pics.

I only have my 20x50 workshop. Would love to gable the roof and raise it to 12 feet, add a garage door on the front (access is thru the side), add a furnace/insulation and get a lift.

Just trying to give a little help. Figure to start big, do a lot of drooling (like Tom does) and then downsize to what you can afford. I wish I had the property to make a garage. I just have to deal with my 2-car garage.

At least you have an area to work Tom. Would love to have that much.

We're still working on buying a different house, been looking for a couple years (yes two years) and we've been negotiating a deal for one in particular for a month now and finally came to an agreement this week!
Selfishly, I have to admit one of the biggest reasons I want this place is for the garage Don't get me wrong, the rest of the home is really nice but the garage has my full attention

It's got a really sweet garage that's about 38' feet wide and 32' deep and has a 14 1/2' ceiling, 2 oversized single car doors and one 12' door. It doesn't have in floor heat or a heating system, but it's got tons of built in storage (old kitchen cabinets) and a secondary room that would make a sweet paint/blasting booth, and it's got it's own electrical panel that I'm hoping to get wired for a welder. I'm planning/hoping to add a lift and some ventilation to it right away, but first things first, we have to move in


The floor has a latex or rubber sealant on it already but I'd like to epoxy it, then add a stainless work bench and some nicer more uniformed shelving. But as a start it's gonna be really nice to have the space to put all my stuff and not have to spend half a day moving things around to make room to work on stuff.

When I bought my garage I got a house with it. That's the way I was thinking when I was house shopping.

We're currently building a 35 foot wide by 45 foot deep garage in our backyard. I'll post some pics up as we get building. Have to get some trees down first.

Build it bigger than you think you'll need. You won't regret it. We built a 60'x120' with 20 ft walls and two 24' overhead doors and we're glad we did. We had originally planned to go 50'x100' but we're glad we went bigger. I would definitely put a floor drain in. We used this drain setup and it works great. http://www.u-drain.ca
