    Big gable fans are awesome! Cool it right down. I went 4 or 5 years before I got mine. I put drains in every bay and in the work areas also. I have a bathroom with stand up shower for when I get really nasty and keeps the wife happy. I tiled the whole thing also. Cleanup is with a hose. Lol.

    Thanks Chuck but you mis-spelled link. Ill have a look over there. http://www.garagejournal.com/

    They are putting in 6 mil vapor barrier and concrete with fiberglass in it. These guys use a steel channel like __|----|__| but vertical for the seems to keep it from cracking.

    I may ask about drains but not certain I want to do that.

    I need to find out how far apart to space for two post lift to add some footers for that.

    Installed a lift in my garage. Had the same issue with a few or at least the one side of the lift having issues with the wedge anchors pulling up. Pretty sure it was due to the quality of holes i did on that side of the lift. both sides were i anchored into the floor had 4" of concrete.

    From what i have read you may want to do a bit thicker pour and a higher psi concrete if you know where a lift will go. I did fix my problem by using some epoxy anchors from wej-it and applying the inject-tite awf epoxy.
