Today the Trusses started going up too.

I have about 8'11" of height in the back bay. Enough for a lift?

Has to match the lines of the house which is a ranch.

A lift had always been a want not a need. Looks like after some reading I'm not likely to be able to use one. Not the end of the world

you can still have a lift. just need a low profile home-owner type.

I like having a shorter option - I'll look into that for sure!

More progress yesterday:

There will be a connection from the garage to the house at the roofline - That keeps it technically an attached garage and simplifies a lot of things. Also means that the roof lines need to match up - hence the 9' ceiling height

This is from the back of the right side bay - it's 42' deep on this side:

i am actually partaking of much the same right now. although i am going simpler-ish.

40x60 pole structure, 12 foot eaves. 2 x man door 3-0 x 7-0, and two windows 3-0 x 4-0. one roll up @ 12 (W) X 11 (H) highbay for most clearance. and another opening i will frame in my own door later.

mine will be built in a week starting next Friday, then concrete in a couple weeks. Insulation, and power to follow.

had to cut in a road to get to it, ~300+ feet linear. and the pad location for it was ~18" difference high corner to low corner. so far 120T 3"- base rock brought in, another 60T monday to finish the subgrade, then 4"-ish of 5/8"- to grade for mud. all done by me, with just a mini-excavator.

Beautiful piece of property!

I would have loved to do more of this one myself but I just don't have the time. I will be doing all the finishing inside though. They're leaving the interior just studs so I'll come in and insulate / wire it myself. Drywall too potentially though I passionately hate doing drywwall
