HaHa, I need to test fit mine now. I thought the 6' would be wide enough. I think the Camery anf Ranger will fit, but I need to see.

Kids, especially the grown ones! I gave my Daughter my old car awhile back, she literally drove the wheels off it! This is the only way I could catch it to replace the tires, and donut, change the oil, and replace the brakes, and give it a overall check for it's 285,600 mile check. I won't see it again until she calls and says it's broke down on the side of the road again.

I know all about that! My daughter says "I'll give you some money when I get paid". Still waiting for her to get paid years later!
I've heard that before as well. Still

She stopped by to pick up the car and asked "how much do I owe you" ...... I said "including the tow a year ago, and the monthly insurance I keep on it"? She has got that (Woman head toss) down pat. Mom added the receipts to the fridge magnet. I think I need a stronger magnet.

Larry with enough grease and speed any vehicle will fit through that door.
I thought my tires were bad. I feel much better about the racing slicks now.

As you might guess it's been slow going on the Shop due to weather and vehicle issues. I have been fighting leaks around the windows. I foamed them, calked them, and even tried "Mighty seal" what a waste. I think I found my problem though. I did not install the trim properly. I need to pick up some more trim and cut out all the foam and calk. This time I need to install the bottom first, then the sides to overlap the bottom, then the top to overlap the sides. I originally installed the top first and worked my way down.

Well, I attempted reworking the window trim to fix the leak issue. I cut the foam and calk out and pulled the trim off, when cutting the foam there was a lot of water being held in. I made a couple test strips to assist with measuring. This time I started at the bottom and worked my way up overlapping the trim. I used the sides to make new top and bottoms, and used new trim for the sides. I then re calked it in. I'll hold off on re foaming the inside as I don't trust this fix. If it continues to leak I may need to call in professional help again.

Looking at some of your pics you have several water leaking issues. If your not using J trim around your windows & doors your going to still leak. You start with the bottom, top, then the sides. It's hard to see but your windows look like their recessed a little too much. I want to address some things based on all the foam you have on the inside. Did you apply any type of sealant on the bottom of your sill plates before you fastened them to the concrete? Did you also run a bead of sealant in front of the plate where it meets the concrete before you installed your panels? Is your front concrete pad sloped away from your front wall? Did you install eave flashing & it looks like you don't have enough or any over hang. These areas not done right will cause water issues where you have all the foam on the inside like where the roof meets the walls, around your windows & at the base where your walls meet the floor. I commend you for your motivation & the willingness to build your own shop. I still think you need a coffee pot in there somewhere....it looks cozy.
