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.

That's so awesome when you plan smth, and then you just see it being released. I had problems with my garage doors and the app it was linked to the house by. The doors just wouldn't open. And I wasn't the only one who had the same problem as my neighbor had the same issue. So we decided to change the doors and reinstall the system together. They found the nearest service, and I contacted them at https://doorsdirect2u.co.uk/product-category/garage-doors/. They've done a good job. You know, it seems to be such an ordinary thing that garage doors open as they should. But once you don't have it, you notice how great it was to have it. Simple things make our lives better.

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.
