NEW would be a disservice. It is well experienced, but in great shape!
nice gear HueyChief!
and :fyyffto the a-hole naysayers
great looking cave, and GS, and RS (ST?), and....
How are those floor tiles holding up now that you've had them for a while?
I'm liking that option as a low cost, great looking, low maintenance floor.
Thanks! So far so good. I am actually surprised at how durable they have been. They look pretty good too, considering the abuse I have given them.
JIM...is that a spot of white dust on the floor near the carpet ???
Looks like it is time to fix the locker cabinet's upper hinge too
yeah, and you need to be using that treadmill rather than polishing that floor and all those toys.
Got any pics of that cage back there?
Until he swaps an LS2 into it , why bother.
Yup, cheap IKEA crap!
No doubt, my fat ass could use some serious workouts!
I'll get right on that!
Piles going in:
Judging by the diameter of those screws, that is going to be a lot bigger building than my dads lake side garage addition.
How big is it going to be ?
And where aboot in Alberta? I grew up South of Lethbridge...
I see a 780 area code on the truck so Edmonton and North?
16" - 20" piles for the foundation, 36" piles for the crane rail columns; located just outside of Edmonton, 60' x 160' x 21' and unfortunately the cost is going to be more than a garage addition as well though.
More of a light industrial building but I am sure that the 5 ton hoists will work as a bike lift...
I need a file with all of the good ideas found here. The next man cave is going to be perfect...well better.
That's going to be a nice!
So here it is!
My girlfriend and I finally found an affordable rental in Santa Fe that has a garage, no small feat! The house is a 50's signature faux adobe, thus no insulation and sketchy wiring. On the plus side the ceiling is so high i couldn't get it into the frame of the crappy cell phone camera. Those shelves you see behind the garage door are hanging down a good 3' and wrap all the way around the space, endless storage!
Since this is a rental I'm keeping costs to a minimum, I'm giving myself a budget of $200 to make it a more enjoyable workspace. I think I have a free roll of fiberglass insulation which should take care of one wall, that just leaves me one other exterior wall to insulate. I'm thinking of hanging thin ply over that.
Last night I started by ripping out that nasty old peg board on the back wall, the 'workbench' is coming out today after I pick up a crowbar on my way home from work. I'll insulate that wall then put in a proper workbench, hopefully I can find a formica counter top to use
Home improvement and countertop stores usually have bargain bins of misfit countertops.
Ya, I'll have to go that route, I checked my local Habitat ReStore and they didn't have any. I had formica on my last work bench and it was amazingly tough and then easy to clean after you're done.
Christmas Eve I decided I had been extra good this year so I got myself a crowbar AND this fun toy..
Christmas was spent in the freezing garage building new sawhorses and then tearing out the old workbench.
I'm halfway through insulating that back wall then I'll move on to the other wall. One question though: that yellow cord hanging down in the top image actually plugs into the workbench socket and feeds the security light in front of the garage. Someone did a have ass job and just used an extension cord for that light instead of running wire. Now if I tear that out and run proper wire tapped into that outlet will I be in violation of any codes?
