He must have the insulation installed by now, so . . . . wonder if he has wifi in the shop?
The plates will fall off in as little as 15 minutes in a fire. The teeth only penetrate the wood about 1/4" or 5/16". And the whole building does not need to be involved. But general contractors like the pre-built trusses because they are cheaper, and take less labor to install. There are videos of residential fires using common things like the pre-built trusses and the glues used today.
we are still waiting for updates
Sorry for the delay... My SO and I bought the cabin next door that went up for sale a couple of months ago. We got it fully furnished but we've been fixing it up to rent out. It's been taking up a lot of time and I haven't made much progress on the garage. Unless you count filling it up with shit piled all over the place! Insulation is about 80% done.
The cabin had an old retaining wall made of creosote-coated railroad ties. Still functional but ugly as hell, so I built a "false" retaining wall to cover it up.
This was the old retaining wall.
So I built a "façade" over it with PT lumber and Hardi-board panels (concrete board).
The finished product. Painted with planters set and 9 tons of new gravel in the driveway. The first renter arrives tomorrow!
Man I just love that area! It looks nice and quiet - you can bet the roads around are bike friendly. I'm thinking two plated KTM's and a buddy.
Yeah, I want to be his new tenant too.
Come stay! It's listed on AirBnB. I intend to list it here on advrider in Vendors soon. I want to build or buy a large storage shed for bike security and weather protection, but until then, any two-wheeled guests can have full access to and use of my garage next door.
I'll also give anyone on two wheels a discount. $99 a night. Sleeps 6 adults (guys) without sharing any beds! New pictures going on AirBnB soon. Split it 5 or 6 ways and you're talking around $20 bucks a night per person! Cheaper than camping! I'll also let you know some great roads and routes if you're not familiar with the area!
It's dual-sport heaven around here. Hundreds of miles of forest service roads.
270 road miles today on the sidecar rig!
Anyone ever checked out plywood flooring?
Got it all cut to 8" width, sanded, laid, nailed, and stained. Saturday I'll lay on the first coat of poly.
Cool! Are transitions between strips OK without a chamfer on the edges?
Same material for baseboards?
You just knock down/round off the edges with a sander. Quite a bit of work but easy. Took me two days to rip and sand, about 192 sq. ft.
I was going to use standard baseboard, but that's a great idea! Thanks!
Got anxious and got the first coat of poly down today. Using oil-based semi-gloss.
Paul, wow, great idea on the floor, looks good.
Love the idea of the rental next door.
I just went through this thread pg. 1-9. Thanks for documenting and sharing the process! Looking forward to the finished product.
I'm in Marietta. Hope to stay in your sweet rental one day soon!
I lightly sanded the first coat of poly with some 150 grit to knock down the raised grain, vacuumed the dust, wiped 'em down with a rag and mineral spirits, and laid the second coat of poly. I was planning to do three coats, but two coats took exactly one gallon, so I'll leave it at that. I used semi-gloss, so it should be pretty hard and durable.
You ever end up doing anything to protect that gas line coming into the barn?
You should have a mini rally!
