Over 35 bikes, and lots of real work done.

The garage is not done yet, but it IS functional!

Charming indeed and built like a brick siht house. I tried to tell them that this wasn't your normal buy-at-Lowes shed but they blew it off. They thought they could winch the whole thing up on a trailer.

The base/floor of my shed was 8X16 shipment skid for a piece of heavy equipment made from 6X6's and 2X6's tying them together. I built the rest like a storm shelter.

11 hours later they had it tore down to the skid and still couldn't pull it onto the trailer. We had it halfway on the trailer and then backed it up against a tree and pushed it on.

It's gone and the footing is built and will be seeing concrete next week, Tuesday is planned.

I'm taking pics and thought I'd post them in sequence when it's done.

Looking good

Last of the paint going on the walls and all new lighting is hung and wired. Another week or so and I'll be done! And then, on to the next project!

I moved into this house about 11 months ago. I finally got a good picture of the garage!



All i really need is a nice tool box so I can get rid of one of the tables.

Walkingbear wins!

I could have gone up to 54' wide but then the septic system would have been problematic. The 28' depth was limited by the radio tower. Unfortunately I wasn't thinking shop when I placed that so 28x48 was all I could muster. As far as height, I wanted to go higher but was zoning restricted. I can't go any higher than the existing structure. So the man cave is a series of compromises.


Insulation is in and lath is going on (now complete). The sheetrock is going on now and the next inspection should be Friday. Snag came up with the garage doors. They are 4 to 5 weeks out. Seems R-11 doors aren't readily available in California

The wife and I are putting our current house on the market in the hopes that we can sell it fast enough to get into another home we found locally with more land, more square footage, an in ground pool and most important of all, this:





Really hoping it works out!
