We have started the new 4 car garage. :w

Yes, there is a house attached but enough about that.

Sorry to hear they're forcing you to put a house onto your garage. :chuckle

That's a great looking foundation! Looking forward to more pictures as the project as it develops. :upthumbs

I've never seen a foundation quite like this one before. I'm guessing those formed supports at regular intervals are engineered to prevent the slab from sinking relative to the foundation?

How high are your ceilings going to be in the garage?

The double door garage side has 10 foot ceilings.
The single door has 12 foot ceilings that could handle two lifts.
I don't have plans for any other cars until after we move up to Oregon Ohio.
Last week we dropped off the 14 Mustang Shelby Cobra in Oregon.
So, we still have 3 vehicles to get up there - Silverado Callaway SC 540,
Honda Accord and the Corvette.
Plenty of time to think about something else or nothing. :w

Is the new house in Oregon? I go over there quite often to the BP refinery. My son lives in Northwood which is next door.

Can't say that I have ever been there. We like Lucky's for ribs though.
