The mason's are saying they will be done on Friday and the waterproofers will be next in-line, then I get to start rough grading and filling the garage. At this point, the framers are "scheduled" to begin on December 26th.
You could eliminate filling it if you dig deeper and install a pit, so you can work on vehicles standing underneath. Probably cheaper if you just install a lift, though. Either way, it beats laying on a creeper.
