Just getting there. You can see that I have a 4th garage door on the far side.

Showing the wall that seperates the front 3 stalls from the back 2 stalls.

Done.

My two C5 Corvettes have a new home. It took ALLOT longer to build than the contractor first told me it would take (and more $ than first told ). It is well insulated and heated to keep the garage above freezing in this Iowa winters. This was their home before the garage: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...or-my-c5s.html

New cabinets put in to hold all the C5 parts (and Talon parts) I have.

Very nice looking garage. Congrats - has to be a big plus to be able to park five cars in the new garage.

I hope you have enough height to install lifts so you can stack a few more in the future

Took some of my rough cut lumber, planned it down, jointed it, cut to size, and painted to make shelves for my trophies.





I put LED strips behind the trophies. Got like a dozen or so colors to choose from but of coarse I choose blue.

Major cool. I would be out there playing most of the time. The blue lights are good, but I think purple would be better. Just an idea.
