I'll be the guy with the family in a minivan, but I swear I do actually own Fiats....

Re: Garage building thoughts, aesthetics & ultimate shop layout

Thank you! It still needs the lighting/electrical completed, HVAC installed, gutters/downspouts, a water spigot inside & outside some trim painted (the white on the outside is primer, we are still debating...or, er...I'm listening...on the outer aesthetics), a trellis installed (I know, trendy), shu...
