Almost finished the AV wall last evening. I still need to find some more maple to finish trimming out the bottom shelf. There IS light at the end of the tunnel!

Let's see Photos of Your Garage!

Old configuration when we had 3 bikes running at a time.





New configuration now that we have 4 running bikes at a time. Room mates turned all the bikes around because they thought this looked better.. but it's a pain in the ass to park with the front of the bike's forward. The VFR 800 owner insists he likes spending the time to back in and not have to back out down the drive way *shrug* We have a 5th bike in the shed, 1990 Connie waiting repairs or replacement.

I've always wondered why people who have multiple bikes parked close in don't build wooden racks (like a bicycle rack).

Think about it, all 4 of those bikes are leaning onto the side stand, minimizing clearance between them. And even with a centerstand, its tight quarters for moving and lifting the bike onto one.

But if you made 4 stout sets of "wheel chocks" that the rear wheel would back into, that would come up high enough and be tight enough on the tire, and then mounted all 4 together in a row, you would have more space between them it would be easier to back into, and then you just release the clutch in gear and it won't roll out of them either.

Maybe i'm untrusting, but I would not want my buddy squeezing between the bikes and trying to get the bike onto its side stand in there.

You can never have enough light. I'm now slowly switching my T12 fixtures over to T8. I've got a 20x24 Man Cave and I've got it lit with 4, 4 tube tropher fixtures, 3, 4 tube regular fixtures and 1, 2 tube fixture. With white walls, you'd almost think you're in an operating suite...

J,

Was OSB structrual sandwich walls a feasible option? A friend told me once his brother built his house in Minn. out of the OSB sandwich panels and it was tight and well insulated

Is the spray on foam about the same cost as fiberglass up there or way more expensive?

These are called SIPs, Structural Insulated Panels. They can be used for walls, floors, and roofs. Higher (if not the highest) r-value obtainable compared to stick and bat insulation and the tightest envelope.

There are some pro's and cons of SIP's. The cost is higher for the material, but a building could be weather tight in 1-2 weeks. Some other labor costs may be higher like plumbing and electrical for contractors not used to working with SIP's, however the annual energy savings can offset additional cost of construction in under 10 years.

I've been doing some independent research of my own as I plan a new build. I want the most energy efficient house I can build and it looks like SIP's are winning right now.

Update

The important stuff is done!


Working toilet, Sink, and hot water!

The lights



Some more to do on the lighting but when I hung the 1st ceiling fan I cut a hot wire. That was my sign to quit for the day I ruined my nice wire strippers

Left to do:
Finish lights and ceiling fan.
Figure out a ground fault on the "sign circuit".
Exterior Color Coat
Final inspection
Garage Doors, I don't need them for the final.
Air Conditioning, again after the final.
The last concrete over the septic system, another after the final task.
Epoxy the floor.
Move in.

VCT (Vinyl Composition Tile). It is what they use in the big box stores. It is 1/8" thick, and heavy as hell. One box of 40 weighs 65 pounds. It has color all the way through, and cost me $1 a sq ft installed, I did the install.
