Haha...Sorry guys I havent updated in a while. Its been kinda busy. Well I have the pictures now. Currently we are still under construction. We are building a second floor in the shop for an office room so thats been taking up time. We've already had some business. Head gasket, timing belt, clutch job, axle/brake jobs. So its been ok.... not great but we just opened up anyways. We are putting carpet up in the second floor complete with a futon, throw rug, full fridge, tv with satellite tv. Build like a home away from home. We are even putting in a stand up shower on the first floor. We are picking up my buddies bead blaster w/ 300 lbs of beads, parts washer engine stand and cherry picker next week at his house since most of the second floor is done. Welder should be comming in a few weeks depending upon our budget and 80+gal compressor along with it. Im guessing the lift is going to have too wait a few months...

Here are the pics.








Money shot..!!

Nah..Its pretty secure.. I was skeptical at first until I saw how they were doing it. Its pretty solid. They anchored it every foot all across the walls. It still needs work like the roof needs to be drywalled up but at least it doesnt leak at all. It already rained pretty hard and not a drop in the shop. Give the entire shop a fresh coat of paint and it should almost be good to go.

Stalls? for the bathroom? Are you talking about for the shower? We are redoing the bathroom area too. We are going to extend and widen it. Show stall is going to be where the sink is and the sink is going to be moved all the way over to the far left in the picture.

I meant like...stalls like work stations, each in lift (if you plan on putting some in) with room to work at.

Were thinking of running 2 lifts. One in the center of the shop at first so at night we can park 3 cars in there and after we get some more money we are thinking tearing the wall down and put up another garage and installing another lift parallel and turning the first lift so its parallel also...kinda like this.



But the first one will be in the center of it. See where the black car is parked . Just center that out so its not on the wall and thats where the lift is going to be.
