How we designed a wooden garage for Mr B’s classic E-Type Jaguar.

As a classic car enthusiast, Mr B got in touch with us to discuss a design for a Keops wooden workshop garage. The design was to incorporate a car lift. The main considerations were to position the roof truss to allow for this and to establish how high the car was to be lifted.

Timber garage for a Classic car

The 6 metre by 6 metre garage was built on a brick built dwarf wall, with 58mm pressure treated timber bearers underneath the log walls. Two Velux roof windows were added for extra light, along with two VRGL long windows plus a pedestrian door to the side.
