Whatís the reason for the slope at the opening of the garage? Does your driveway run downhill? I get the center drains like Weld has but I guess Iím not clear on the first few feet being sloped unless youíve got a drainage issue...which you shouldnít on a new house.

Iím in a valley and the wind absolutely howls through here, never an issue with water getting under the garage door.

In my mind it gives me the best of both worlds. A flat shop space and less chance of rain water in my garage in a bad storm.

I'm excited about it. My last custom home had similar garage space, but it was split into two garages and not near as functional. I also have 30 feet beside the garage and it goes back a long ways. So I'll have my oversize 4 car plus a big covered RV canopy at some point. I like the idea of having all my stuff in close proximity. It makes it much easier to work on stuff. I also have an RV dump/50 watt plug, regular plug, and water spicket all planned for just outside the garage for the RV parking plus extra lighting..

It looks like your garage floor is just a tad bit lower than the house floor, what maybe 3-5"?

This is something I've noticed done more out here and NEVER done back in the Midwest. It took tooth and nails to get a foundation form guy to lay a house out correctly if you did not want a large step up from the garage into the house. And even then they normally screwed it up.

Looks great! When does the lumber show up?

I believe it's 4". I like it as I've had more than one hot water heater leak or explode out here. This keeps the water out of the house and from causing water damage/mold issues. PLUS, it gives me 4" of lift space. I'll have 12'4" on the shop side.

The framer was out chalking the lines this AM. He's been framing for my GC and his dad before him for a long time. I hear good things from so I'm hopeful.

You'll be able to put just about any lift you want in there. you'll enjoy that space for sure.

Since the "shop" is attached to the house really what are your plans for fireproofing, sprinklers, etc? I know we discussed this before somewhere...

Are sprinklers required in the entire house? here in Livermore it is, most people say its a pain in the a__, too expensive, too much leak liability etc etc. My response is, "you ever see a child in a burn unit?"

YOu having the GC do everything up to sheetrock or is he/she doing finish as well?
