      Ster Fry have not met a tv star hollywood star sports star or news person who isn't arrogant and i have met plenty doing the job i used to do. can't understand why just because they are on tv - youtube or what ever we need to kiss their ass and i tell them i'm not kissing nobody's ass and to screw themselves. witch they all can do. thinking their better than everybody else just because of what they do. i figured scotty kilmer was like that just by the way he talks no surprise there.

      Thank you for taking time to reply. I get it - personalities are very touchy. Ask my wife of 30 plus years. When working with her I know she thinks ( & says at times I am a Prick) taken that out of an equation her view and statements are much shorter view point then above ( I hope :o ) So I do thank you that I might not want to have him over with friends but to watch on a how to video we might. That it as long as we have our finger on the button to stop/delete. I have tried to make YouTube videos & to date not a good one yet. So my hat is off to those who do & well even. An put the work into that gets us to view, even better. Thank you Ster Fry

      Robert Chase - I met him at a car show once, he's not a good person. He's very arrogant. He talked tons of shit about other car shows and berated an Audi/vw tech for twenty minutes for being correct and making him look bad.

                A volt meter does not give you an indication of battery condition. You need a load tester for that.

                  3100 for a lift really isn't that bad! I'd love one! I would use it for everything! Tire pressure is a little low... Pull it up on the lift to check.... Yes I would do that.

                          600sf is so small! but alot better then what most people have, i dont understand why you dont see houses that are 70% garages. my dad built a few garages i helped , he did one back in 1990ish for about $6000 he contracted the concrete work and we did all the framing. it was about 1200 sf one 16"x 7" roll up door and one man door. we had 3 garages, one garage we had was built with wood he got from tearing down a barn. i work out of a airplane hanger now that i split with another guy $1250 a month for 2250 sf. that's 30k in two years! i cant afford land here but i think i could build my own shop for pretty cheap, i would not hire contractors or contract writers i would hire the guys that do actual work. i can run the job and do a lot of the work. another shop i had i did all the drywall and power from panel to welding plugs and hooking up a mill and lathe, when you don't have the money you learn how to do it your self i bought a book and it tells you all the codes and he guys at home depot gave me some help, so many you tube vids now too.

                                        Cool garage I live in central Minnesota so I understand the cold. A heated shop/garage is huge almost imperative to keep stuff working. I built a 30 x 60 with 14 ft side walls but... I did it with one other guy and we are contractors but still a lot of work and took 2 years before I could afford concrete and another year to afford electric and then interior finish ie; insulation, poly, internal sheathing and painting etc. It never ends I saved a ton by doing the labor but it took I'm guessing 7 years before I could use it properly! So it's a crap shoot pay up front and use it right away or be cheap do the work yourself and wait many years? It's a double edge sword in my opinion:) I also put a cheaper 2 post automotive lift in, 11k lbs from chin but... works awesome for over 3 years so far, It lifts my 6.7 cummins dodge 3500 dually and no problems yet lol. After everything being finished I am guessing material costs for just the building- approximately 10k for shell (in 2006) 3,500k concrete (2008) not heated, electrical 2k (2009), interior finish with insulation, poly sheathing etc. 4k (2011), so... I am in the country $150 building permit no inspections in fact we don't have building codes except state electrical code crazy huh? Good luck to ya'll who want your own bad ass garage cuz it either costs a lot or... it's a shit ton of work. Did I mention it's a shit ton of work? Good luck ya'll

                                                              I built a garage in the backyard in Monroe, WA back in 2016. It was 24x36 with 16' walls. I opted for a pole building, but had full 2x6 walls and T1-11 style plywood siding. I didn't want metal walls. I paid 10K for the building supplies and the engineered drawings. It was another 1500 for all the permits (building and electric). I ended up having to pay someone $2000 to stand the posts up for me since the small ones were 6x8" and they all were taller than 20', with five feet underground backfilled with concrete. Took me 2 years to complete. I was working on cars in it as soon as the roof was on. Putting up the 16 foot wide by 14 foot high door was a little bit of a challenge. Just had that door and the man door. No other way in to the yard so another door would have been a waste.

                                                              I made the floor 6" thick everywhere except where the hoist went it was at least 8" there with lots of rebar. The 3000 psi concrete was $3500. I laid it myself with the help of a bunch of friends. But, let me put it this way, you weren't going to slip on the floor if it got wet.

                                                              I had a Bendpack asymmetrical lift for $2500 and installed it myself. The lift worked really nice. Hardest part was standing the posts up. Drilling the holes was pretty easy with a rented rotohammer. I installed some anchor pots in the floor so I could tie down the cars I did frame work on. I now moved and my new house doesn't really have a place for a shop. I am hoping to add on another bay with high walls to my two car garage so I can get another lift.

Base coat is fine but topcoat/sealer started yellowing at 18 mos. After 5 years it looks dingy/dirty all the time. Rustoleums’s response? Don’t open your garage...UV will damage. Nice.

New garage is 24x45, 3 course stem wall with 9' walls. That's 12' 9" to the inside peak. With new slab and building, installation included in price, box eave style, $16,300. Found a really good deal on a 10,000 lb lift used from my mechanic shop for $2500 insatalled. We have thw machanic for the vehicles post '75, because I don't work on things when I cant see the motor and have computers! I build custom street cars and trucks. Currently doing a resto mod on a '74 Plymouth Trailduster. ( looks like a Dodge Ramcharger). Nice garage though man. Good job!

I am planning my own garage project now. Thinking about a lift. My lot has a slight slope to it, they want mega dollars just for the foundation. I think 25k sounds great for what you got. I live here in Northern IL too. Way out west, no Chicago.
