    Default My new Toybox

    Hi guys,
    Thought I would share my new garage build here. It is a steel building 80' x 125' It will be split into three sections, 50 x 80 will be for enclosed toy parking, 50 x 80 climate controlled shop, with a wash bay, meeting room, & gym. Above that will be an apartment/doghouse. I will use the last 25 x 80 for storage for my business. I am posting up to where we are right now along with some very primative plans done on google sketchup.

    Mainly cost of construction. Here in the high dry desert, steel will last about as long as concrete. It also matches the construction of the rest of my businesses facilities.

    Thanks Guys! I will try not to disappoint everyone with this one. We are on schedule to start sheeting on Monday. I have to start ordering the three AC/heating units (15 tons) next week, along with the cabinets for the kitchen, electrical panels, lighting ect.....
    I will also get after the Mohawk lift, and tire equip. Man my Amex card will be smoking this next week.
    I will post up more pics this next week as they get the sheeting done.

    Well since this is a by the seat of the pants kind of build, I am making this up while we go.
    I found a spiral staircase that I think will fit in nicely for access to the second story. What do you guys think?
    I am going to try to give the facade of the apartment and downstairs level an old fashioned look to it. Maybe thirties kinda street feel.
    Also trying to figure out the floor. Leaning towards acid stain and clear epoxy.
