    not quite, Ton, more like what you would see at a car show - so these were quite large. Maybe 4x8, and they hung down long side vertical with the logo horizontal in the middle... next time I am there, I will take a picture.

    Hi Andrew, Just to add my 2 cents house design recently built and managed by yours truly here and garage ready for the one and only RHD Z8. Hopefully the house photo is attached.

    I have been using the car lift in our new garage extensively! Not sure if you have the height, but if you do, you must get one of these! So easy to do mundane things like clean the inside of the wheels in addition to all the mechanical things one would want to do.

    Hopefully you and the family can make it up to Vancouver and we can have you over.

    Good luck with the process!

    Hi Patrick,

    We we were told 18 months for the build from May 2018, so sometime in late 2019/early 2020 we move into our dream house. The ceiling in the garage is 12 feet high, and I plan for a lift next to the workshop.

    The Pacific Northwest especially Seattle and Vancouver are some of our favorite places to visit, and we’ll definitely do a better job of planning next time to stop by your place.

    Really enjoyed this tread. My wife (Susan) and I have decided to build a house near the hill country in Texas (Northwest of Houston), and while the design will be more San Antonio style, she told me to find a way to build a 6 car garage that fits with the architectural style of the house, so I very much enjoyed reading about the garage pointers and to see the beautiful houses. Our present house in Houston is a single story with high ceilings throughout the house and luckily the builder included high ceilings in the garages (2 car and a single car). I installed a lift in the single car garage and it works great. We are just starting the process, and I am hoping that Texas will be much easier than California to get a permit when we get to that stage.

    Congratulations Manuel on your plans to build a new home! We thoroughly enjoyed designing the home to our specifications. Given the long wait through the design review and permitting processes, I have also enjoyed every minor building milestone.

    Can't wait to see both of these gorgeous spaces come together - and maybe even get to photograph them!

    Progress during a dry winter in Northern California. Framing for the driveway looking down from what will be the garage in 2019.

    I am at the site with my camera almost daily with the intent to create a photo essay of the build. I was advised to make a video too after framing to document the location of utilities that will eventually be hiding behind sheet rock.

    The house when finished will have a 4-car garage with a 12-foot ceiling. There’s a nice workshop area too.

    My thoughts haven't changed on the "must have" items from response #14 in this string. I really like the "toy rooms" others have posted in this string with some amazing vehicles too!
