About 3 years ago I had a Porsche 996 that lost the engine due to the IMS bearing going out and causing some exciting metal noises in the engine... Anyways, after some back and forth, Porsche agreed to provide a new engine as long as I did the install at on of the dealers. About 1.5-2 years ago there was a class action lawsuit blah blah blah...told my wife if anything came of it I'd like to use the money to redo the garage and she agreed. I don't think either of us gave it much credence and life went on. Last week a check came in for a little over $4k from my dear friends at Porsche! So after years of dreaming of ideas for the garage I'm now in the position to make this happen!
A little info about the garage - we recently moved into a newer house with a two car garage attached to the house, and a nice all brick detached two car garage. The detached garage is where all of the upgrades are going to happen.
Detached garage specs:
22' 9" wide
10" to the ceiling, with the garage going up to 8'4" high
Floor: going to do RaceDeck solid tiles (haven't decided on the coin vs diamond) for the entire floor. According the racedeck site I'll need aproximatly 620 tiles. At around $3.20 a tile the cost comes to right at $2k.
Cabinets: have been eying the Bold Series cabinets from NewAge (NewAge Bold Series Garage Cabinets
). Figure I'm looking at around $1,500 here.
Walls: going to repaint some here, haven't decided on the color yet. Currently they're white with metal shelving that'll come down. Maybe something fun like a solid color on one wall? I have a ton of nice racing photos and car posters that I'm going to have framed nicely to hang as well as some car flags. Even have a lighted Lotus sign to put up somewhere.
Layout: haven't decided on what pattern/colors for the tiles, but will do the entire floor. Cabinets along the rear of the garage along wit 2 rolling metal tool cabinets. Have a 55" plasma tv that was given to me that'll go over the shorter cabinets. I need to find a good lighting solution, and someday will install 4-post lift.
Any other ideas, or suggestions for things I may have forgotten about?
