Wed, evening after beach volleyball

A little after 9PM and it's dark outside.

Here it is with the lights on. Very impressing with the reflective ceiling foil.
Almost too bright.

taken infront of the garage door




the glare is amazing.. high output 54 watt bulbs


reflective foil

whats with the foil?Is the insulation pushed hard up under the sheets of ply?Why is there foil in the main garage area but not in the upstairs area behing?
I guess the tiles will be laid on some timber battens with some sort of paper or felt under the tiles?Really interesting to see how different construction can be in different parts of the world

the foil is holding nakes batts of insulation. There are wires pulled tight to keep the insulation close to the sheathing.

The upstairs is getting dry walled so foil is not needed. Building in the Southwest is totally different. I built home on the east coast the codes and how they build is totally different then here.

Ya me too, in it for he long haul, been watching this for some time, it's amazing what you have to go through to build this garage. I would give my left %^!@ to build something like that, keep the posts coming it is cool to watch and see the progression. Hope that you go until you actually have it finished and using it for whatever. I have a small shop with a Direct Lift Motorcycle lift and make the best out what I have, I would probably be lost in something like that, HMM! let me have the chance and I'll tell ya.

Anyways just enjoying the view.

thanks for the flowers

We finished the dry wall and talked about trimming out the upstairs
in some areas. The tile will be next and hvac is getting it together for next week.

The window we put in is just a small window so I could look out
and let additional light in. I will do just fine.

We also decided to use motion detectors to turn on the lights at each
door. We have them all over out house now and we are kinda of spoil.
Walk in and the lights turn on. Helps at night going to the john.



door way into the office. It will be a single light glass full length. Found the door on craigslist for $30.


Stairway to the upstairs. The office will serve several purpose. With the door close the
fumes from the garage would smell up the place. The office will serve as my clean room
and it will be air condition.


small window just installed. We can even open it.

Monday

Nothing is happening.. because LOWE's dropped the ball.
Windows won't get here until Sept. I told them they need to make
it right with a $500 gift certificate.

Painter is coming on Thurs to give me an est. Concrete now has all the plans and will get a bid out next week.

Looks like the build is coming out to $100 sq ft. Hate cost over runs.

Walkingbear...

I'm sure you're my long lost Father. Can I come home now?

I promise I'll keep the Garage clean this time so you don't have to send me to Canada. I promise I'll be good....
