Tim, I moved closer to you. Don't know if you consider that a good or bad thing. I'm right outside Ambler, PA.
Well you know I don't like you since you went to that other guy for your manifold. Just as long as you're on the other side of the river I'm fine.

I used the quickrete (Lowes) tintable 2 part floor in our garage, went on very easily and seems to be holding up nicely. you can tint it to match the BRG if you want.

Don't forget to lay down "lift spec" concrete pads before you do your floor (IF you're serious about the lift in the future and it doesn't meet spec).

I'm good because they put in 6-10" of 4000psi concrete in place as well as a dedicated 220v outlet in the garage as well. Garage is also insulated, drywalled, and painted. I thought I had it all sorted out, but forgot to ask them to raise the garage door on that side.

6-10"... must be a bomb shelter under there. I've spent fair amount of time surfing garagejournal.com for ideas. Lots of good solutions there.

I need a good garage contractor. Believe it or not, I think the fiancee has decided that registering at Home Depot is a good idea so I can get my garage built and house fixed up.

But I dont know how to put down a slab of 4000 psi concrete for a garage.

At least you got target. We still have hundreds of dollars for bb&b and macys, and there is nothing left we need at those places.
