    Looking good and yeah it's hard to find the right guy for the job. I was in the same situation when we bought our house. Now I have a shop and a few years later the pool. This year the drive though door is going in. But that's 9 years in the making. Just be patience it all takes time. Unless you have unlimited funds. Lol

    One thing I will say is, just think ahead to what your end goal is. That way you don't have to take any steps backwards. Like pumping and hrydo. I made sure there was room for the drive through door when it was built, as well as everything small, like a land line phone line, too a hard wired internet line run out to the shop all underground while it was all dug up. Also enough power to run everything you want to run.

    I even, before they started building the shop put stakes in the ground and tried driving vehicles in and out with different sizes of "marked off" garage doors with string. Lol

    Adrian, when you need your hoist, let me know. Shaun's company (aka him) installs them. He can probably get you a deal on a new one (challenger, apache, snap on) or if you want used, we have some 2 and 4 posts in our shop.

    Ya so hard to think of everything. I originally planned on in floor radient heating then couldnt decide where to put the hoist so gave up on that idea. Going overhead to avoid the issues.

    Also if you notice the 3 grey tubes coming up through the edge of the slab they are for 1.Hydro Main Feed, 2.Data and Cable and 3.Switching from the house. Number 3 was a big one, if I forget to turn the lights off inside I will be able to do so from in the house without having to walk back out to the shop.

    Read my mind. I grabbed his card when we wheeled together last year but have since misplaced it. Was going to make a post here to see who it was again...lol. Please PM me your contact info.

    Well pad is poured and we have hit our first issue. Truss company facked up and screwed up the order ie they didn't build them :-( They found the order in the system but never processed it. Framing and trusses wont start till the first week in October now. That being said the pad is a thing of beauty, smooth as a babies bottom, no relief cuts required due to concrete quality and engineering and all entrances/exits have a 1/4 slope away from openings for run off.

    Looking good! Make sure someone reviews the truss drawings so they are built to the right length. It really sucks when trusses show up 6" too short.

    All this garage talk has finally got my but in gear to get drawing up my garage build.

    With your height (awesome) the garage must be offset from the property line considerably?
