Hell if you have all that attic space and it's at a good spot just let the lift go through the ceiling.

Any recommendations for garage flooring? I'm looking at epoxy and polyurea solutions for the brand new house I'm closing on next month, but I'm open to other options.

I used the Armorpoxy SPGX in our new build. They recommended an acid etch and minimum 30 days after pour. After almost 5 months, I'm still amazingly happy with it. It's been durable, easy to clean, and looks great.

You can do a color coat/clear coat, but I did just two coats of color with the antislip additive in the second coat. It's a little slick with snow packed in your boots, but water isn't a bother at all.

I did the Rock Solid polyurea at our old house with the flakes, and I've helped my dad do a few of the Rustoleum epoxy floors. The SPGX is much thicker and a little tougher to apply, but has so far been way more durable than either of the other two systems.
The concrete was poured a few months ago, so I'm good on that front.

Snow isn't a huge concern in central NC but it does get pretty wet. We just had our wettest year on record. I'll definitely want some anti-slip. I don't have any coating in the current garage and it's crap. I was planning on renting a concrete grinder to get the best adhesion possible after doing some research on All Garage Floors.

I think my wife and I looked at 50+ houses before we settled on new construction with what amounts to a "3" (2.5) car garage. It's on enough land to put a shop in the back later if I want.

I'm looking at different wall mounting systems, either picking through a closing retail store for those wall mounts or doing my own French cleat setup. I'm not enthused with pegboard as the mounts seem to fall off fairly easily. Anyone have experience with the pros and cons of each?

Depends on the exact lift. There are some Bendpak lifts that are lower, like 118" and lift 64".

That's a rad space.

One of the things hindering my progress on my project is I can't make a lot of noise because my kid's bedroom is above the garage. Anyone have tips to help knock down the sound? I have plenty of vertical space to play with since it's 13' tall.

4" is usually the minimum for a 2 post, I'd go thicker.

All the outlets.

I used https://www.garageflooringllc.com/p...-floor-coating/ The only real problem with it is that it is destroyed by brake fluid, but a good poly or epoxy is a massive improvement over the relentless dirty that is bare concrete. I applied it myself over 4 days to ~650sqft of garage and I could do a much better job the second time.

That's waaaay more per sqft than a good poly coating. I spent about $1000 for 650sqft.

We've been pondering the addition of a third bay to our garage in the near future, my dream is to have optional parking for 3 cars and a full workshop area if I need. Was discussing this with the wife and she suggested we go hog wild and build a garage in the back corner of our lot like so many of our neighbors have. Her one requirement is that she wants a greenhouse attached to one side.


Did I marry the perfect woman or what?

Your wife and my wife are pretty much on the same page. We did good.

That's a cool shelf. I've got 3 of these and they work really well:

You can rent a concrete grinder from a big box or equipment rental. Even my dumb self got that right.
