Final Inspection

We called for the final inspection yesterday. The plumber was out to
finished the job.

Driveway from the street will start in 10 days. The deck will start after the finishing of the block wall. Yesterday, I started building the rock wall adjacent to the steps. Damn..that is a lot of rock.

Loaded the shelve and a fully operational sink


My trusty helper was stacking up the cleaning supplies

steps and rock wall

The steps and rock wall turned out great. Before pouring the steps we put in plastic sleeves so we could run low voltage wires and water lines without having to dig them out.

The footers were set and we went two rows .. to let the footer dry
before loading the rest of the wall. All the rock seen on the wall is from my property. When they were
digging and scraping the yard I told them to leave all the larger pieces. They could have left me another 20 tons and
I still would have used it.

The excavation companies charge you to take away the dirt. They clean and separate the rocks and then resell them to other
contractors. They were kinda pissy when I told them I wanted the rock in a pile in the corner of the property.









Now I have time to unload/unpack some of my treasures.

R90/6 small and big tanks and wixon bags

The long process

The hardest part of moving in is putting evening away.

Made a spread sheet and have named the shelve and bin numbers.

Each piece will be entered in the XL file so when I look for it .. I know where it is or if someone needs a piece I can see if I have one.

I was really enjoying your garage build until now. How can I live without alphabetizing all my own parts now? Seriously, nice job on the build and plan.

Now I know where they are.

There are companies that will sell the barn door sliding slides. I used rustica hardware. They were pretty easy to work with.
They will also sell you the metal rack .. but I had mine made by a welder.
3 inch stock x 3/8 inch. You can measure the room and can make one long piece rather than two pieces that you will have to put together.

I think it looks better as one and it really works well. The doors I found on CL. They came out of an office building . Heavy / fire rated doors. Good luck
