Here’s my garage.
Wrong person, we just have a standard gray floor. We have the four Post lift.
I was about to make a comment about propane tanks in an attached garage, but then I remembered I stored an oxy-acetylene torch in an attached garage for years. I finally moved the acetylene tank to the shed with the propane tanks...
I'm planning a 3 bay addition to my 2 car garage. The new addition's floor will be ~4 ft lower, with ~12 ft ceilings for the lift(s). Likely a dedicated 200A service. Will update the thread when I start to move forward.
Speakingof .lift...what model is this one and are you happy with it overall?
Congrats. Just mentioned this to my better half this WE....she simply gave me "man crush yet?" look.
The floor looks like it's made of lava!
I did a little video of me doing the garage .
Challenger Lift since it was one of the widest to allow the Model S to fit underneath. Upgrade to the Signature S incorporating electric folding mirrors making it simple to get in and out.
Best safety feature is automatic locks every 4 inches in case of hydraulic failure.
Very happy with the lift.
Spent quite a bit of time getting it setup, glad to finally have a Tesla in it...
oh I like that...thank you for the idea.
@DÆrik What do you think your costs were not including time and labor? I already have all the official measurements and was planning on making one out of wood but you have me rethinking this.
Some seriously cool garages here...! I love it.
I think I have maybe $600-$800 in materials. Materials weren't a big issue. It was mainly time. A lot of it. I didn't keep track of all the time, but I have 40-50 hours worth of video footage and I didn't even record everything. It was my first time doing anything like this though and had a fix several things, so I am sure if I made another I could cut some time out of it.
I guess these are my "before" shots. Mine definitely isn't showroom clean! One day it will get a makeover.
There is a Tesla in there hidden under the 2014 RAV4 EV body (40kW battery, 65K miles, unlimited mileage lease).
Tractor is a 2016 Kubota BX25 D-1. Also a Model Tee electric golf cart. Clipper Creek HCS-60 EVSE.

All I can say is go through this thread for inspiration and plan ahead for a second Tesla in the future... once you’ve had one it’s hard to go back!
I know I posted some pictures earlier in this thread, but here is a video a friend made of our garage condo.
The loaner Tesla that finally convinced the wife that we needed an S. Can’t wait for our white S to arrive!
