Default Oh no, not another garage.

Well just like real life, the garage is full, time to build a new one.

So here we go, start with this pile of wood.





Several hours later and this is where we stand.




Lean to on the side will be for the trailer and other gear not used often.



This shot shows you the size.


Got it all framed up and the garage floor coating finished. I went with the sealed floor look.


I made a base that consists of 1" x 2" frame work covered with 1/8" fiber board. Base is 36" x 94". Main garage scales out to be 17.5' deep x 35' wide with 10' sidewalls. Still a ton to do including making my own corrugated siding.
Stay tuned for a fully equipped shop to come.

Thanks Ed.
Lets see, if I use it for just parking I could hold 5-6 rigs in it but I want to set it up as a shop so that will limit it a bit. Hoping to be able to fit 4 in it all the time.
It is not fixed to the wall, it is built on a storage shelf. That is our store room in the basement. I build a base that sits on the shelf with a foot overhang, then the rest is on top of the base.

This time I am going to try and make a functional 2 post lift as well...wish me luck on that one !!

Here is a quick pick before I started anything, it shows just how much room is on the shelf.

Update time all.

I had some time and got a lot done, not finished but making good progress.

Siding formed, painted and installed.



Roof over the lean-to


Walled off the "office area". I used heavy poster board and balsa strips. I tried to replicate a dry wall covered wall.



Built 2 industrial steel top work benches.


Shelving unit, I kept the bottom open for larger skid storage.


Sand blast cabinet built along with the table for it and other tools.



Start of moving in.



Still have a ton to do, wiring, lighting, many many details.
Hope you like and thanks for looking.

Well, slow but steady. I got rid of the foam board and have started with walls out of wood. I cleaned up my checkerboard floor and have decided on a new layout for the bar and seats. I'll get some pics up soon, need to get a little more done before I post anything.

Yes it did Andy, I think there is a vid, granted not a good one, posted on the build page.
We never did finish the build off though.........
I need to get a nicer vid up once the snow and ice are gone. I am making a promise to myself to get out an run my stuff more this summer !!

Hello everyone, had a little more time in the shop.

Started to add lights. First is over the desk/table in the gun room.








Next was the pegboard. It is 7.5"x16", I drilled 1806 holes in the darn thing !! Still a work in progress but I think it's turning out pretty well.










Next update will be all the conduit and breaker box installed.

Thanks for looking.
