Geez, clean that mess up! :)
Finally got things cleaned up a bit today..
Between my bikes and the daughters' two, it can get crowded quick.
After a much needed cleaning and washing of ALL the vehicles. The blue snap-on chest belongs to the owner of the white 300R, he is renting a room. When he moves out, the triumph will be where the blue chest is and the grey shelves will go to the backyard, followed by some more craftsmen paraphernalia.
Starting to like this place!
I need more room! 30x40 is not big enough!
Do I spy a CL70?
Looks like a 60X80 might not be enough room
It's been a long time, since I've contributed anything to this thread. Some may remember this being my shop. It's a 24'X36', with 10"/12" attic trusses. My neighbor did the concrete and framed the lower walls, while I was away with work. He and I set the trusses. I did all the sheeting, roofing, siding, etc. Door carriage door hardware and exterior lighting will be added last. I started this project, in '07.
The 22'X22' garage was already here. I stripped, shingled, and sided it to match the shop.
I've been messing in the shop attic, the last few days. I've got the floor put in. I used clipped 7/16" OSB, as I don't plan to load it too heavily. I can always add a layer of luan, if I should decide to, though. I'm waiting on the dropdown stairs to come in. Then, I'll determine where I want them and cut the hole. This area is 10'X36'.
The outer areas, down each side, are an additional 4'X36'.
These shots are of the diagonal supports, bracing the trusses. I've seen new construction that don't have these. I've, also, seen a house and commercial building blow down, in straightline winds. Neither structure had any type of bracing.
I've got 100A roughed in. This shop wasn't planned and I already poured the driveway. I dug trenches on each side of the driveway and plumbed a water hose into the conduit. With a drilled galvanized cap on the leading end, I drove it through, under the driveway. I busted seven fittings, but, I got it through. This picture is just me thinking that I'm going to run two additional conduits to the ceiling, to ease any additional circuits I may add later. Lighting is the only thing I'm thinking I'll add.
Once I get this finished, I'm starting on the house. It's getting an enclosed front porch, three layers of siding stripped, windows, doors, sheeting, siding, and all the trimmings. Then, I'll start the interior gutting. By then, snow should, again, be flying.
Too small!! My wife thinks the next house, retirement time, will only need a one or two car garage? WTF 2-3 car garage and 30 x40 shop might get us by...too small is woman talk
All those bikes and not a single Jawa in sight .
But wait , I have two for sale .
I thought women didn't care about size? At least mine says size doesn't matter..has she been lying to me the last 10 years?
My wife was so bummed that I filled her car's spot with bikes and had to build her her own two car garage!
We moved in a year ago Halloween. We had the builder put in a sink with hot and cold water. Best garage for me ever.
Fab, where abouts aare you going to be in Devon, as you've mentioned campsite, I'll have to plan a trip from (not so sunny at the moment) Somerset :)
You need another bike!!!
Garages seem to be lacking beer...
