Very cool! What is you are using for siding? Is it metal sheeting?

Yes, all metal siding and roofing. No insulation or anything. 2x10 PT sills on crush stone. Just something to keep stuff out of the rain/snow. The later of which we had yesterday.

Heres me doing the best i can with our single car garage on apprentice wages

Im living in there in the moment, the only thing that makes it difficult is the lack of a bar fridge, which i am currently looking for.
There's a 3mx4m room through that door at the back which i am currently in the process of insulating/lining so i can put my bed in there but for now its the good old futon. No complaints here









The apple is my music computer, its hooked up to the stereo. The laptop + monitor are general web browsing, and the computer on the shelf is my DVD/TV.

Spent my first night out here last night, nice and comfy. I love it.

I went down to the lumber yard today and got a quote from the owner on all the stuff I need to make my shed. I went ahead and bought it all including 2 doors, windows, shingles and the work. I'm told it'll be delivered on tuesday! Wooo! I'm looking forward to more progress.

In preparation for the large amount of work I'm about to take on, I decided to build a table / bench for working on. It's 48" by 26" by 32" high and made from treated 2x4's and 7/16" osb. It's insanely sturdy and should hold my miter circular saw well. This way I won't be working on the ground and blowing out my knees and back before I'm close to being done. Check it out.



Only cost me about 13 dollars. The osb was a gimmie from the Mom's. She had a lot of work done to her house and had some sheets left over. Took 5 - 2x4x8's to make. I'll be installing a power outlet on it eventually. Also, once the shed is done, i'll have my first bench build for it. I'm anxious to get started on it, if you can't tell. :)

Seems a friend had a similar situation not too long ago with a shelf mounted to drywall.

Good luck with your castle. Nice having a space.
You'll be happy to see that the plywood has been removed from the ceiling

From this


To this We still have to tape, mud & paint, but at least it's closed in, insulated & a cpl light fixtures have now been added. The garage originally had 4 fixtures controlled by two switches. Now there are six fixtures controlled by three switches. Two 8' flourescent fixtures are in place and a cpl 4'fixtures will be added later



We will also have to make a hatch to close that opening in the ceiling

One thing the garage needed was storage space so I put in a shelving system with 6' shelves. To keep things from falling off the shelves the plywood from the ceiling was cut to fit the ends.

From this



& this



Started out with this



& this



Then added the sides





To packed with tools & other assorted items



Thanks to whomever it was who posted that they use plastic pails to store stuff in. I have a way to get as many as I need and they are ideal for storing similar items

Heres something that looks pretty cool for the pails. I may get some for storing the abrasive blasting media http://freckleface.com/shopsite_sc/s...ammaseals.html

Well, the big workshop took all last summer (08) into the winter. From clearing the land to painting the sheetrock. Its still getting "finished" as far as benches, pegboard etc. The shed with the garage doors took about a month. It has electric. And I had to do it all by my lonesome. The smaller lean-to type shed took about two weeks.

If you've never used them let me give you a on the Gamma seals. I have been using them for 15+ years on my duck hunting gear buckets. Just in case you've never had the privelidge to duck hunt the best occurs in the shittiest weather most people can think of : cold and wet, and close to or in a lake, river, swamp or flooded field. The Gammas have an O ring seal that makes them water tight, I have swamped a canoe in a river in single diget temps and was glad to have a spare set of clothes in a bucket with a gamma seal. Everything in it was bone dry and I had plenty to keep me warm. For storing media they would be great, no moisture invading the material.
