I'm not sure the 748/916/996/998 is an upgrade over your Daytona, though.

My work in progress.

So after adding a few more bikes to the collection this year I got the go ahead to build a new home for them.Its nothing big but will give me the room for 4-5 bikes and I can bring my toolbox home from work for the first time in 15 years.
It will be 12.5x16 barn style shed with concrete floor.
Side walls will be 7'.Overall higth will be 12.5' from the ground to the top.








And this is where I am to date.I went with the zero clearance door so I could keep the ead space for storage and such.

I know this has been covered 5000x but where can I get info about epoxy coatings and which to use. Just buying a new garage (with attached house) and want to epoxy the floor prior to moving in.

Jim
and...... two hours later....

Wow what a time suck.

I've got a big garage I need to figure out. All I need to do is figure out how to get an epoxy floor coating to work and not break me financially. I'll post pics up once I get a chance to get back to the new house.

It's still a big work in progress, but here's the current state of my idea.



Still need to add upper storage cabinets, and refine some more storage ideas.

Here's the plan for the Tablesaw outfeed support. There is an insert that can be moved so that the planer and spindle sander can utilize the outfeed table:



Also, the general purpose workbench bottom rolls out and will be a work table for the motorcycle:

If you can swing it, replace the waterheater with a tankless/on demand setup... not only can you save money on your bills, but you can gain some extra storage room in that nook. Don't worry, I can spend your money just as good as mine...

I had a tankless in CT, and it was great. This house is a 2008 though so the tank has a long time before it will go bad. I'm cheap so I won't replace it early.

Are you wanting to replace the vacuum with a tankless water heater?

I had been trying to figure out how I was going to fit a motorcycle lift into the garage without losing a good bit of space. Your idea is a really good compromise. So I'm stealing your idea... just the idea...
Since I am certainly not a carpenter, I'll have to modify the design a bit.

Here's the work bench I've been using. I had plastic shelves with re-purposed ammo cans and plastic totes underneath.



So today I started the first part, rebuilding the bench base so the cart/stand will fit. I still have to cut the plywood for the backing board and lower shelf.



Then we'll start on the cart/stand. It will be 24 inches high and have storage space for the totes I store my bike parts and pieces in.

Thanks. I spent a long time trying to figure out a solution that didn't take up valuable floor space when not in use. I feel like this is the best solution I could think of without recessing a motorcycle lift into the slab.

Agreed...
Finished part one this morning...



With the cinder block foundation, the wall is set back an inch or two. With the previous bench I was always dropping things behind the bench.
Quite a while ago a friend mentioned putting a rain gutter across the top of the backside. I fills the gap, gives you a place to store your sprays, lubes and what not and if things fall, they don't go far.



I used to use a milk crate stuffed under the old bench to store all these cans
