Imho I would slide some sheets of flooring through the joists, board and plaster the ceiling and put a youngman loft hatch in with the ladder attached to it for the storrage

i would like an M6GC in the future, almost exact same length, so could get away with it

trying out the duramat floor tiles, i think in the future i will get the existing concrete floor levelled out better, but the mats seem to be coping well with the slight bit of unevenness so far.

i think black will be murder to keep clean though

The muddy bit outside the garage that caused all the mud will be slabbed over temporarily for a few months until all my front floor/drive is redone in stamped concrete

Got some of the tiles down and cut to shape for the step area. Sinks being installed tomorrow, and painting will be done next week as some of the plaster hasn't yet dried

Wasn't happy with the tap i ordered, it's so powerful it feels like it could strip paint! makes a right mess even in the deep sink, so changed it for a normal tap for now.

Quick vid of it

The tap you bought is a precast sprayer used to clean plates etc in kitchens. It should be good for cleaning engine parts. Garage looks awesome. Bet you can’t wait for it to be finished.
