not mine but one i just finished. (this is how my dream garage would be finished off on the inside) the owner of this 25x 25 with 12 foot ceilings garage gave me the freedom to finish off the inside of his garage how ever i wanted. he was ecstatic with the final product

Here's a couple I took in my shop today. I'm taking all the good bits off the RRC and I'll be installing them on the 90 & 110. Then the RRC goes away.

Here's another Rover at BDR Auto Holliston Ma. I know a smart guy can recognize this one!

So I desperately need storage in the garage, and I'd like to have shelves and doors so that I can keep some Rover stuff out of the watchful eye of the wife. I've started sketching up some ideas and figured I'd ask for some feedback. I may have a higher opening along one of the bottom sections for extra body panels I've been storing, so that may be a bit higher. I like the idea of lift-up strut style doors, and I'll probably keep that top section open for my Oztent, etc. which I can just slide out from the top of the stairs.

I don't recall how high the ceilings are, but there's certainly room to bring the garage door up a bit as well, and perhaps make the opening a bit higher as well in the future.

Beware, the more storage you have the more crap (Rover and otherwise) you will accumulate.

Too late. That's the problem! hahahaha.

I also just realized that I think that section to the right of the fire door is 80" from the door to the wall on the right, and we'll be replacing a bunch of the interior doors which are also 80" so those could make for some nice stable/cheap/free shelves since they're all flat-panel doors.

I didn't want to say anything, in case you liked it as is, but I thought that you should also open up the garage a bit with both a taller door and get rid of the old motor. I have sidewinders with back up batteries and automatic garage door deadbolts. They completely eliminate all of your overhead system and allow for a great deal of working room and storage. Plus the peace of mind of knowing the garage is truly locked and not simply relying on the back pressure of the motor.

Did you post pics of your garage in this thread? What is a garage sidewinder? I just googled it and it came up with some band.

edit I just found what you're talking about with the sidewinder. I thought you'd meant it eliminated all overhead including the doors going up there so I was intrigued.

I didn't. No. Just chimed in in case you hadn't looked into the product yet. Love them. I have three. Side by side. I may have a pic of my garage in this phone, but I'm moving so I don't think it'll be too flattering ;-) Here is a pic of what they look like: Second pic is mine currently. Eeek

To eliminate everything, you'd have to do a roll up door by overhead door or a carriage style double swing out door.

With the sidewinder, the door tracks are however high you mount the header for your garage door, so height of the door is everything. If you leave volume above the door, it is all accessible when the door is down so long as your storage racks are attached to the ceiling. When the door is up, there wouldn't be any clearance issues so long as you're careful not to design in any interference or let anything hang too low.

If you don't raise the door opening, I don't see the point of raising the door. You can use the space above it for storage.
