I just finished reading every page so far and this is an awesome build up. Thank you for showing us the progress. I hope that my shop comes out as nice as yours when the time comes.
Started moving items into the shelving. Never knew I had sooooo much.
Working on the K75 while waiting for parts.. found the boom box until the stero system is hooked up. Can't wait to get the wash sink hooked up.
Nice set up!!!
Monday involved putting down the rubber floor mats in (under the guest room)
One of the lifts will be stationed there near the windows.
The other part of the day involved building a lift . My little one wants to put his car on top of my lift .. so I built him a wood one. Ramps were made and top will be added this evening .
Grading will happen tuesday morning. The last dumpster pull will be on Wed.
Painter is sealing the exterior walls Wed morning and painting Thursday
Moving is a pain in the ass.. but the more that is done the better the results for getting things put away .. plus getting my tool boxes in will be a plus.
bobcats, surveyor and lots of labor. Moving and grading the site.
It starting to look great. Inside one rubber matted room is ready.

How are you going to hang or store your tools? Did you say something about a metal peg board?
I have 4 boxes that are not in the garage yet. I have order the metal peg board and I have order additional industrial shelving. Lot of the power tools are put away in the wooden cabinets. Small tools in the small draws and all will be labelled. Each work table will get a little bin for shop towels, wd 40,brake cleaner, carb cleaner and spray bottle of spray multi purpose cleaner.
My other worktable has my Columbia vise on it. I'm looking for a post vise to put near the welding table
This is my garage storage.. a dually trailer fill with tools and my second lift.
Roofers installing drip/flashing
This is the sealer we are using $250 for 5 gallons bucket. It is like plastic when is dried.
Sprayed painted on.
The heavy machinery showed up today
Grading is taking longer than expected.
The swell to be cut had to be deeper to follow the natural path of the land.
The cut to the house had to be greater. Lucky we kept the large boulders.
We expanded the opening to driveway and the 3 guys picked up larger rocks and moved them to the side.
Since we will have extra rock we are going to build a fire pit.
Make a couple of benches or flat rock seats around the pit.
Perfect for cool nights and making some mores.
The garage is fully painted with two coats of exterior Dunn Edwards paint.
Matched the main house colors.
We also order 21 tons of 1/4 minus madison gold for ground over (dust nazi's wants the ground cover with 1-2 of stone) dust control.
Pics of the painted garage vs the first day
We are still working on the interior. Bathroom needs to be finished exterior and interior lights will be installed in the morning
Great post! I have a large spread in No. Nevada I hope to use for a project just like this one day.
Is the roof tile not down yet? Looking good
Roofer's were waiting for paint to be finish.. They are on call in the morning.
You will see a finished roof by sunset Friday
Joe pulled a raid on a bunch of contractors.. so roofers never showed up..
The grading is finish and lights are installed
this is 21 tons of 1/4 minus
upstairs fan and wall lights
Lights on the front of the garage
The roofer was here this morning. Two man crew started at 7am they just left and I have a 30 year room on the garage now.
Tile will be gouted this weekend and plumber is scheduled for next week to install the water fixtures and hot water heater.
The tile is finished in the garage.
The tiler is the same guy who worked in the main house.
I told him before he was leaving that the chalking was pulling away from the glass blocks in the Master bath.
A quick visit by him .. showed the glass block wall bowing and shifting.
The plumber who had installed the plumbing did not do a compacting back fill and the soils around that area shifted.
I emailed the GC this afternoon and told him he had a problem... and that he should figure away to take care of it..
Plumber is coming out with a compactor and extra fill sometime this week. My job is to wet the soil so it will compact tightll.
Always something happening when you build.
