When I had my concrete poured I had a sealant added immediately per the instructions. Some sealers need the concrete cured for some time, the stuff I used has worked well and may be the best type.

Agreed. Add a 220 line in. I am doing similar to you and also have a bendpak lift. The 220 version costs no more and operates faster so I got the 220 version.
I was going over the install instructions yesterday and realized my lift is also 220v. Good thing I hadn't run those lines yet.

Princess Auto sell similar units, cheaper, all made in China, of course.
If studs are exposed, you could 'sister' them to become '4x4 or 6x4'
Had 1200-1400# of maple flooring on 5 homemade 'brackets' (2x4s), 2' from wall, ZERO issues

Studs are covered now so too late. I could nail 3 2x6 horizontaly to spread the load across more studs

Lumber can be stored vertically between studs or overhead. (Could be an issue for access and/or potential warpage). If warpage is a concern a moveable rack/shelves could built with castors? Sort of depends on what you want to store and how much you have vs if you are worried about warpage? I’ve used a train of cheap dollys before putting stickers in between the coarses….minimizes warpage and very mobile (access sucks if you have to get to piece on the bottom). Everything is a trade off.

I now have a place in my garage to build the garage. I ran out of plywood so I need to get more. I built the workbench using scraps so it's not super pretty. But very useful. I'll try to find more plywood scraps (3/4) instead of paying 100$ for a new sheet.

Now it feels like home. It still needs many shelves and storage solutions but it's good enough to enjoy a cold pint in.

I'm getting ready to do the siding. I first wanna be able to store everything inside, to clean up the yard. Then I'll jump on the siding.

Almost done with siding. This is the last remaining big task.

I wasn't planning on adding any window trim but now I think it's obvious I need too.

The small sidewalk will be my first project with the 3ph concrete mixer (hydraulic). Can't wait to try it out.

That's a very sharp looking building!! I bet you're already appreciating the concrete floor, too!

Will you have a rain gutter on the side with the walk in door? Otherwise you'll have alot of water splashing up and against it....maybe running underneath it to the inside.

Looks great, and there's nothing much more satisfying than building your own shop. All your outdoor equipment will thank you. I built mine last year, 24x36. Pretty amazing how fast you'll run out of room in that. I promise, the missus will find LOTS of things that need to be taken out of the house and put in your shop for storage. Get it finished inside so you can insulate it before winter. What I did for interior siding was break down pallets and trim the edges of the slats to use for the walls. It was a lot of painstaking work to fit it all, but it gave the inside a really cool look. I put a few sheets of plywood up on each end, but most of that was recycled crate walls as well. I spent my budget on the structure, siding, and roof because materials prices skyrocketed during the build. I got the pallets for free and they were mostly oak/poplar pallets, so I got some pretty nice wood out of all that.

Despite putting a 12" thick footing around the edges with TWO rebars for reinforcing, AND 6x6 re-wire under the whole slab, I have some fine cracks now. I'm thinking the concrete was crap, and it finally shrunk enough to crack. It took nearly 4 days for the slab to set good enough to start building on. The contractor I hired to do the finish on the slab got here at 7AM, and didn't leave until nearly 2 AM the next morning waiting for it to just harden enough to be able to float and finish it.

I'm not planning on it this year. I'll be planting rhubarb all along the wall so I'll see what happens.
