A do it yourself pit would probably be cheaper.  In my climate and location
(Seattle) though, a pit would be a lap pool in the winter without a floor
drain hooked into the sewer, which would add considerably to the cost and
difficulty.  I'm also about 20" from glacially compacted clay hardpan so
dense you need a jackhammer to dig in it, and I also covered up a long
abandoned septic tank with my garage.  It's a lift or nothing for me.

I, too, am getting jealous. Have any of you built, or contemplated building,

a pit? I saw one in Stanley Gold's garage in the book "Ultimate Garages". I 
thought that it would be what I'd do if I had a 10-car garage with an 
attached house. Seriously, is a pit more costly that a lift, I wonder?
