Henry and Preston,

It seems we're all on the same track, more or less.

I have had three bids on my "dream garage,"...the following are my specs
that I gave to the builders:

30' X 40'
12' walls (to accommodate the lift I plan to install)
shingle roof w/ 16" overhang all around+ fascia
steel ceiling inside (white)
3 windows, double pane for insulation properties
hole in wall for air conditioner :-)
1 16' garage type insulated door
1 entrance door w/ window
Building fully insulated for winter use
4" cement slab, except where my lift is going to be placed...has to be 6" there

All of the bids range between $12,200 and $14,500, complete.

It gets pretty cold here (MIchigan) so the insulation thing is big with me
and while metal buildings would logically seem to be colder, I have been
assured that with proper insulation they're as warm as a conventional structure.

Either of you guys have any ideas of what I may have forgotten in my specs?
Oh, btw, I'll do the elec myself.  

Best regards,
Jim Beckmeyer
