Since the garage was a toss-in on the house to make the sale, I didn't have any say on the level of finish. I was actually surprised they did ANY drywall since that was not in the contract.

That said, the quality of the work as minimal, and I am working to make it look decent.

Still, I am pretty happy with it overall since it will be a working garage!

I'd trade an acre of raw drywall for the wallpaper I have left to contend with. On the bright side, my garage is fully finished. I'm thinking about painting it a nice color and painting the floor though.

That's a good idea.

We did my buddy's shop that way. You don't need much light to just walk in and get something, so we did one fixture on each end of his shop on a single switch and then split the rest in halves (rest of the lights on one end to a switch and the rest on the other end to a switch).

Well, here are a few shots of the garage. Not huge, but it fits everything I need it to (for now).

That red thing keeps my dogs well fed.... (click on pic to watch video)



It's called a meat chopper (obviously ) and is used in the food industry to make sausage filling. This one is from 1956. i use it to blend all sorts of meat and bones and then I freeze the stuff in portion size containers to be thawed out for each meal. I have 2 Great Danes that weigh 150lbs each, so they eat a lot every month...

Wow, a buffalo chopper in your garage?

Do I want to know what's in the freezers?

All sorts of meat you say?

I like this shot!

Seriously, great looking space. Are those cabinets from Home Deport or Lowes? How do you like them?

I have the metal menards garage cabinets in my man-kitchen.

All of these products I would summarize as having a bit thin on the steel, and lots and lots of hardware used for assembly.

But if you do the assembly correctly, square everything up nicely, and perhaps throw in a tube of locktite, they should stick together.

Thanks Jim. All the cabinets are part of the Gladiator series that is sold at Lowes. I like the cabinets alot... they do require some time to assemble, but once put together, they are quite solid.

Still moving slowly!

Because I need to literally do half the garage at a time, I have begun half the painting.

But first, to show the quality of the mudding I have to deal with, I will show you the side I have yet to prep:








As you can see, major gaps, missing mud, edges that are as much as 1/4", etc. This is what I have delt with on the right side, keeping in mind it is a garage, so I didn't put fanatical time into it like I would a home.






The after wet sponge treatment. I also added a lot of additional mud to fill cracks, holes and gaps.




After the first coat of drywall primer. That took forever as it soaked up a LOT of primer. 2 gallons for half the garage, and two coats.




And the finish for the evening. The second coat of primer, with touch-ups in spots that appeared thin.

I think it is looking pretty good so far. Tomorrow I apply the paint. White semi-gloss in eggshell on top, and blue/gray to match the tile on the bottom. I expect to put a red stripe inbetween.
