Thanks for the comments. Yeah, white lines on the shoulders here to. But I thought they'ld get lost in the white check on either side.

Well didnt get time to clean up yesterday, but got the floor done. Today I'll get the chair rail done on top of the diamondplate. And finish the floor molding.

Well, not to put a too finer point on it: it may have had something to do with the the pokey, dark shed, a narrow bench top, oily smears on the wooden floor, cheek-by-jowl neighbours fences along with the complete absence of an overstocked beer fridge, multiple red tool cabinets, epoxy sealed floors, numerous machine tools, sofas, a large TV, large posters relating to motorsport, multi-bay garages, numerous motorbikes/cars/ in the background ranging from early 20th century, Ducatis suspended from the ceiling and any visible source of heating ( or is that what the laptop is for?). The tidy tool racks on the end wall and the CO2 extinguisher had me going for a second or two though. All in all, for a workshop on the other side of the Atlantic, I score yours 8/10 for tidyness

Digging the diamondplate on the walls and switch/outlet covers. Did you make them or is it a kit?

I hate to tape and spackle- mostly spackle. I was going with FRP but now you got me thinking diamondplate.

It's acceptable "artistic license"

Beautiful looking space, but it would be too nice for my stuff, and it makes me tired just looking at the work it took!

Just a bit more on mine.

Othere than the shelves, it doesn't appear that I have done anything, but I have done a lot.





I emptied 8 bins of stuff into my cabinets, and reorganized 5 more. Plus I added the wire shelves. I like them because they look clean and unobtrusive. I used fasteners every 16" on the studes, so they are well fastened. That and I am only putting fairly light stuff in the bins. I am quite confident they will hold up very well.

I had to move my windshield storage down 6" to clear.

In the next few days I expect to have the basic storage solution completed.

Got the diamondplate here http://www.metalsdepot.com/products/...cc=%20&aident= They had the best prices and reasonable shipping. They charge $5 to rip a 10x4' sheet down to 2x4' So thats what I had done. 2' is to low IMO for chair rail, so I used 7" base board held up 1/2" from the floor (something like 1;4 round will cover the space after the floor goes in) then with the 1 1/2" yellow painted molding stripe thing I didnt post pics of yet and the 3" chair rail on top gets it close to 36" which I think is good enough for a wainscotting hieght. The switchplates were from this place http://diamondlifegear.com/metal-wal...FQFeTAod0lHK_Q They are real aluminum as opposed to some cheaper plastic ones I looked at.

Organization!

JVB, Isnt it a nice feeling to be getting your stuff and shop/livingspace all nicely organized? I lived in clutter most of my life in a little house and one car garage with 6 cars worth of crap in it. Now all my things are in bins like you're doing. Easy to get at and find stuff when you want to do something. Projects take half the time when you dont have to search for stuff. In the bike room is a 8x10' walk in clostet for all my bike cloths and luggage. Snowmobile suits, helmets etc.Stuff you dont want covered in shop dust. My whole problem is I made this place to big and doing it all myself I'm hoping I dont croke a week after I drive the last nail. If you had 22 years to live you wouldnt want to spend 20 of them builing a nice place to live ......Well off to work.......

Got the moldings done and the floor with a couple of coats of wax/sealer stuff. Pretty much done. Now just have to polish up the bikes and stick 'em in.
