Pictures of garage

Gents, ladies,

I am looking for pictures of your garage. Not the cars inside. I am looking for ideas concerning my future construction. Floor: tiles or cement? why? walls: painted or not? color? lighting? ceiling or walls? why?
Etc...etc, etc...
I am planning to build an in-ground garage to accomodate 5 cars in 2 rows; 3 in back, 2 in front. 1 spot will be dedicated for maintenance and equipped with the car lift (2 pole). 2 doors, setional type on front.
Looking forward for your comments, pictures, and of course, constructive ideas.

Thanks to all,
Didier

I will have to dig up some photos (not of my personal garage).

The first thing I would recommend it painting the floor with a special paint. It will make cleaning very easy and does not let oil stick.

Here are some interlocking tiles:

If you are going to have a lift I would include built-in cabinets but also keep at least one tool chest on wheels so you can roll it under the car for easy access to the tools while you work.

So will this garage have three bay doors? It will be two cars deep correct?

Garage will have 2 bay doors (large) and will be 2.5 / 2.75 cars deep.

My first idea was to leave the concrete floor. I have found a product that you incorporate to the cement/concrete surface to harden it and color it prior "buffeting". Still need to spray a chemical product over to waterproof it. That's where my problem is. I want something resistant to garage spills of any kind but also time resistant.

Thanks for the reply.
Didier

I would HIGHLY recommend having an epoxy floor coating used on your garage floor. I did on my garage floor, with the installer broadcasting very small chips, giving the floor a granite appearance. Visitors think the garage floor looks like a ballroom! Clean-up is super-easy and it will NEVER lift off the original concrete floor.

Thanks Tonyh. You have a nice looking garage. Could you share the Ferrari emblem on the floor please? I'd like to do something similar but on the walls. I was thinking of having the emblem reproduced and cut on a piece of self adhesive and paint as I peel the pieces.
I have other cars that I wish to include as well (MB & Audi). Those are not difficult to do. On the other hand, to reproduce Ferrari AND get it right it's another story. I am not too good at painting/drawing!

Thanks for the infos.
Didier

Didier,
the outline of Cavalino shield is first applied in yellow resin. Then the detail of shield is applied by hand , piece by piece. It 's like a big jigsaw puzzle. The detail is made up of lazer cut vinyl resin pieces. I'm pretty sure they can be ordered and posted if you're interested?
Rgds
Tony

room for more: I have been looking for a 365GTC4 and a 365 GT 2+2 to add to collection...and perhaps a 360 spider. I have not found any good examples of the former two models...most are in poor shape and after undergoing a cosmetic restoration of one of my daytonas, I have decided that since no restorers live within 120 miles from my house, that I would not undertake any more restorations (radical ones anyhow) so the search goes on and on
