Looks like a solid set up. How much storage space does it help you take advantage of. I was thinking of doing something like this (more of a long term project), but I haven't fully committed to the idea of doing it. Yours looks great though, inspiring I daresay! Especially thinking of the patience and time it takes to have the end goal in mind 14 years down the line

The building is 19’6”x30’, it is two feet longer than the slab. The walls are 13’ high to clear the hoist. So three walls bolt down to a perimeter cast footing slab, the end with the roll up door is on gravel for now. The slab was 19’8” by 28’ poured back in 2004, designed after a friends mechanic shop in town. The hoist is a Forward brand which is the same as the new car dealers use around here. It has 11,000 lb capacity and is 13’4” headroom, I can pick up an ambulance high enough to change the oil and work on the brakes. I am getting close to retirement so this gives me a nice place to make extra money.
