    That is the most pristine garage I have ever seen! I feel like I shouldn't even be an owner after seeing that thing! You are putting us all to shame

    This project started out as cleaning the garage to see if I could fit an F430 in there. Once I took my measurements and saw that it was possible I started to work on it. It took 4 weeks to clean out half of the garage (the lambo was sitting pretty on the other half). 6 trips to the dumpster (incredible how much junk accumulates). Once I saw how much room I had I took it to the next step.
    I started with a commercial roll up garage door (looking towards the future, lift). Then
    black granite floors (now I know why they were on sale) that are hard to keep clean but they look sweet. A new glass door so that we can see the car from inside the house. Air conditioning, Television with satellite of course, a fridge, and a sound system ( I design home entertainment systems for a living)
    Bed? Who needs a bed I would happily sleep in either one !! The whole project took me 3 months.
    Thanks again for all the compliments

    I posted before, but I just had to show my wife this.

    She loved it!!! and now she thinks her having a lambo would be a great idea too!!

    You just became my newest best buddy! When its time.... I will remind her to remember it was her idea! :)

    ^ Hey what ever it takes !!!
    My wife was really into this whole thing from the garage to finding the Ferrari for me. I thought for sure she would want to drive them but she is actually scared (we have alot of uninsured ppl in Miami) so she is happy just being my co pilot

    Do you do work on the cars yourself? You certainly have the tools and a lift.... If I clean your garage can I sleep with my choice of the the two Italian Ladies?

    It looks great. I have a few questions - Who makes the red cabinets or did you paint them red? Are they made of water resistant material (I live in the Boston area and there is lots of moisture that comes into my garage from time to time). I plan to do my garage over this summer with some flooring (likely the plastic tiles). Would the granite you selected scratch over time from sand/dirt on the wheels?

    Here is mine from a few years ago (sold the 993 did not drive it much and just sold the 360 spider a few weeks ago so I'm looking for a 360/430 spider and then a gallardo spider):

    Let me just say that you ^ have the setup. I love your garage especially the lift.

    The granite floors if they did get scratched, which over time I am anticipating, you could easily have them polished. Thats what I do with my interior floors every 2 or 3 years. I happened to get these at a good deal because they weren't selling for interior ( I guess the granite was too dark).

    The cabinets are gloss red mica. If you can't find a local carpenter to make them for you go to this website they have really nice stuff. Car Guy Garage.com

    Good Luck with your project !!

    Nice!
    Can you jack right on the granite or will it chip?

    Can't say that I've tried, my buddy has done it with a small sheet of plywood under the jack. I would just be careful with scratching it... I would probably use the sheet of wood.

    Looks like you and I have the same "issue" with Italian cars :D

    I love both my F430 and Gallardo, but I have to admit, I have total garage envy.

    I, too, have one of those Craftsmen on-end compressors... but it's so freaking loud that I actually bought a much smaller (and quieter) compressor to use with my recoiling air hose system.

    Great job on the garage...
