I used to have 18,500 watts worth of metal halide fixtures in my warehouse. I changed them all out to LED's like these xhb3_highbay by LSI

Sort of, I had gas station canopy lights with a custom pendant mount before the company came up with this present design. (Wonder where they got the idea. )

Also hi-bays weren't around yet like in this thread.

I got my wattage down to around 8,000 watts. The summer is great but now we need to were coats in the winter while counting inventory.

I am in a similar boat right now at home as my work shop is 9' and my garage in 10' ceilings and need to figure out what to do next.

For painted garage floors use the clear grip spray on walking paths of the garage.

Just spotted this thread. I think your sub panel may be to small, I run welder and air compressor on separate circuits due to the different amperage required. Also have 2 separate 110 circuits for wall outlets so I do not overload them when running grinders and other equipment.

It looks to be missing a main breaker. So you will have to shutdown circuit from main panel when you want to do electrical work.

Looks to be an older garage, are you insulating before putting up the plywood/drywall?

The plan is to use styrofoam insulation. No plans for a welder so panel will be fine. It is a sub panel with the main breaker at house, I might add a disconnect.

Started working on roof, should wrap it up Saturday morning. I was 4 shingles short.... Then onto gutters, and 2 new windows, then some of the break metal work. I will start on repairing header for one large door sometime in December.

Just curious, is it the picture or is there a lean to your garage? If so, what's your plan on fixing that?

It looks like a garage from a Tim Burton movie.

It is just the photo. The Garage is in fairly rough shape but if I tear it down, I will have to move it to the current property set back requirements. I will be re-framing the front wall due to years of water damage, this will be the hardest part.

No real updates:

But I have it insulated, and I will start the plywood/drywall process next Saturday. I will also be ordering the single garage door this week, with the new header work possibly happening next weekend.

It is taking way too long to do this. I have most of the sheetrock up and plywood. Spring has been slow to arrive and working out there in the cold sucks. I will address the heat before next winter. The Single Garage door should be installed in the next month, then on to siding. Pics will be posted soon.

Cool.

Looking forward to more pics.

I still have to do my lighting layout in my basement work shop. Odd shape with the main HVAC duct work running down the middle. Thinking can lights but also thinking the more the better with dimmers or 2 different banks of lights.

If you can paint the floor, I recommend it. If it is already oily or the location has too high of osmotic pressure, it is not possible. Cleaning spills very easy and I wash the floor and squeegee when it gets particularly grimey. As mentioned earlier, think about the type and location of lighting. For heat, look at the ductless AC/Heat units. I went with Samsung and placed it where the Bonneville sign is in the photo. Then on to the cabinets...it only ends when your funding does.

Very nice pic! I am getting close to that decision point. I will have to wash the floors with muritatic acid and level it first. I am taking my time and this has taken longer than planned but I am doing it right.

I used Rust Bullet.

I haven't done my walls yet but the floor went down pretty easily. My concrete was about 11 years old and wasn't sealed so I only needed to power wash the whole floor and heavily clean a few stubborn spots.

The middle bay was the last one I did and I got impatient so when I did the final clear topcoat some of grey got messed up but not enough to really matter.

After 1 winter I was happy that the floor wasn't slippery like the unpainted floor was the year before. There is a silca adder for grip also.

New Garage door is on order. I will play with the radius to get it to open as high as possible. We have picked out a siding and will order that after I get samples in to verify it is what I want. Trench for the electrical will go in sometime soon. I have decided to build my own cabinets so I can get the dimensions and quality I want.

This thread is good timing for me. I'm building an excessively large garage from scratch and would love advice on a whole bunch of stuff. Currently we're only at the foundation phase so the only pertinent question is on the lift. Do you guys have opinions on a two post lift vs. a drive on 4 post lift? It only matters for the thickness of the slab. Right now I'm leaning towards a two post but would welcome opinions.

IMO, the 2 post is the way to go if you are going to work on the lift. The 4 post is the way to go if you are going to store the car on the lift. While you can get a bridge jack for the 4 post, the rails get in the way and make working on the suspension/brakes difficult. The 2 post makes it very easy to pull the wheels and suspension, as well as work under the car.

So, what do you want to use it for?

4 post is nice for storing / stacking, but it makes the work underneath a heck of alot harder, and more cramped. For getting work done - 2 post .

My opinion only, but I have had both, and I just layed a new slab, and a 2 post is going on it!
