I would turn the light fixtures 90 degrees and move them to the edge of the bays instead of being directly in the middle of them. You can do three rows of lights, one on the edge of each bay and one between the two bays. If you put a lift in either bay you will have a problem with where they currently are, as well as having light only over the top of a car and none on the sides where you'll really need it.

Got the floor painted Friday morning. Turned out ok. not sure how durable it will be. I will be working in it and its not going to be a museum so not horribly worried about it

The lights are just plain and simple not very bright. I saw some 4 ft 6 bulb fixtures at Home Depot that I really like. I will replace them 1 at a time as money allows ( as I am tapped out from the building ) They re about 85 a piece

i have a 2 bay garage addition, that each bay is angled from the other.

the bay that is 20' deep, 15' wide, 15' high angle ceiling, has 3 fixtures on each low side of the ceiling running w/ the bay.

the other bay is a straight 15' wide, 23' deep, w/ 9' ceiling has the same fixtures abaout every 5'- 6'.

whole garage has plenty of light, even in the day.

Started building the loft last weekend. Its 10X24 with the stairs in the rear corner.
Here is the landing for the stair case



I wanted to have the 24 ft span open underneath so I built my own beam. Its 2 2x12s with a piece of 3/16 steel plate in the middle.










The 2x6s holding up the beam are only temp. There is now a 3 inch steel post holding it.
