Note: Don't do this.

So, its just been adding up over the years.

So, thanks to this thread, I finally got off my ass and started working.

My 24x28 Garage has/had pine panels as wall covering and the drywall was never correctly installed. This weeks tasks consisted of old drywall removal, re-insulation, vapour barrier, strapping and drywall hanging. Its a third done and next week (hopefully) we'll work at completing the other half.

I hope to use the Time Lapse feature on my GoPro to capture the work in progress early next week.

Pony up boys! I need more $$ to finish!
Take a ride down the road the Melvern Square. Just to the East of Allen Armstrong's workshop is my old house..... and my dream garage I had to leave behind. 26'x36' two story barn! Oh I miss that place. I manage with a 24'x24' for now. I have plans to add another bay soon!

Ok. Here are some pics of my Man Castle, mid-reno. All of my stuff is pushed to one side, so the normal, 20x24 workspace is almost used up. I should finish the drywall this week and finish the cathedral ceiling next weekend. Then I have to mud, paint and start organizing. I'll be happy to have a useful space once again. Then it's off to take the junk to the dump!

Lol. Unlike most of you, I have absolutely no desire to have machine tools in my garage. I use them every workday for 8 hours and that's enough for me It's kinda like the plumber whose own house has crappy plumbing or the mechanic whose own car is falling apart. I like my job and like machining but I don't have a desire to take it home with me.

It does free up space for a tire changer...

And there's no reason you can't, say, take something to work from home, eh?

We left the house with the nice garage behind almost two years ago and are currently in a townhouse that has a 24x24 garage. It's a little small for my needs.

Dear doG, please don't let me start any more projects until I get a few out of the way.

It's amazing how much more room a motorcycle takes up when it is taken apart.

I don't change tires at work, but still don't want to change tires.

GarageCam - LIVE!

So my garage used to be awesome, but has since gotten full of crap, but valuable crap to me. I was always paranoid leaving, but now I can watch it from my iPhone or at work or anywhere. Nice thing is, if anyone goes near it, it sends me an email message to my phone along with pictures or video.

Take a look. You can watch (and hear) me throwing tools or just drinking beer and hiding from my wife.
To watch, log in to http://www.watchyourstuff.com (username: demo, password: demo).

If anyone wants one, I'll sell you one cheap. I'm hoping to make money on the installation service someday.

Here's some of the cool things they can do:



Keep an eye on whatever matters the most to you wherever you are.
Your children, pets, & toys are always just a click away from any PC or smartphone such as iPhone, Droid, iPad etc.
Features include:
  • Steer Camera Left & Right, Up & Down including sweep (i.e. pan, tilt, zoom).
  • Intrusion (picture change) Notification – Receive email to phone, home or work (or all) whenever camera motion is detected (sensitivity adjustable). Can discuss door switches etc.
  • Viewer supports up to 9 cameras in a single window.
  • Recording video – take a video of whatever camera is seeing.
  • Snapshot – take a picture of whatever camera sees.
  • 2-way audio – Converse easily or simply hear what you’re seeing (lots of possibilities).
  • Secure Wireless or Wired Connectivity – Means easily relocated – just plug it in to power wherever you want it.
  • Adjustable Mount – Easily mounts on wall, ceiling etc.
  • Night Vision – Allows you to see clearly what's going on day or night.
  • Password Protection – Password Controlled Access Rights Management (variable).
