As far as the MaxJax, that is one option Iíve been considering. And with a chair like that Iíd be one very happy man. If I were to make one suggestion on that chair: Add at least one cup holder!
I saw my mistake the house destroyed was in 2017 so thanks for the well wishes but that's the past.

Cup holders, yes that has been suggested before by my inspector!

In January 2018 we moved into a new house that was build with an 1800 sq/ft garage under need (but limited height ceilings 9ft) when a friend left town I bought his 4 poster lift and now enjoy the best of both of them because of my chair it all works. So don't let your low ceiling stop you or get yo laying down!

Oh yes, what a difference a year can make

Congrats on your new garage!

rudeney I am still wowed! And yes, I am always (unpleasantly) amazed at how long construction can take.

pfarah77 So... A final update. The electrician finally trimmed the outlets over the weekend so everything is live! He also mounted the mini-split and his HVAC guy charged the system this morning. I tested it a couple hours ago and it got quite balmy in short order.

Wow, only 14 months from design to completion... (sarcasm abounds).

pfarah77 Cute... Actually, we've been together for coming up to 27 yrs. She's also a car nut as we test drove a new Cayman S (for her of course) just a few weeks ago and will be working toward that goal once the garage is done. And since I had electric run for a second lift, it would be a cinch to have that installed in her bay. All is well in the Farah Household.
