Found this pic on my home computer. Doesn't show the stairs very well, but does show part of the loft and removable railing (and the great MC banner).

Yeah, with a loft and a removable railing you don't need a wide set of steps. Mine is a full second floor, so I wanted the wide sturdy steps. Nice garage btw.

Now that I think about it I do have a 440 snowmobile engine that is available. That would certainly have the grunt to power a lift in the garage. Only problem is I always seem to end up with the throttle wide open. Maybe a governor???

Only experience with a wench is the ex-wife and she wasn't much for work. Sounds like yours would be better suited for power here, especially with a built in brake. It would take a bit of work to incorporate the hydraulic brake from the sled although it is self contained.

I think she has had more than enough riding. That was the problem.

Ok, Sorry to interrupt you guys.... but here are a few pics of my location. As I said before, per our covenants the 2nd garage must match the house, so it will be looking like such. My location for the garage is just past the turn-around area. Don't you think the trailer could use a shelter!?

Seeing that picture helps. I don't think a 2nd floor would work well. Yoy don't want the garage to be higher than the house IMO. I'd do the 30x40 and have the door on the gable end like on the house. You can do 10' high walls and have a 12' door which the pitch of the roof might allow.
