Decided to diamond polish and seal the floor. Looks great. This is the type of finish most of the big box store use. Looks great

Wed

All were here today and Thurs. the garage door will be installed.


The yellow paint will be the color of the interior. Bright enough to reflect light but mellow enough not to blind you while working. Semi gloss that will be washable.

Good stuff. I've been lurking on this thread since the beginning. My dad was a building contractor so I love watching projects like this come together!

I have a stainless steel deep sink (with hot /cold water) I rescue from a closed restaurant.
Shelving will be a combination of steel prep tables from the same restaurant and boltless shelving from lowes built on a elevated base.

Kitchen cabinet base from my kitchen remodel and lots of rolling racks to
keep parts on when taking a bike apart. I have two woooden 8' tables that will be mounted agaist the wall. More pics to come next week as things roll in

Painting Ductwork

If memory serves I recall something about applying vinegar to galvanized metal to neutralize it before painting.

Looking good.

friday morning ..rain in AZ

ok, we need the rain. Dain and Donald my trusted day workers are cleaning and mopping the garage floor and putting shelves up.

We were hoping the garage door would arrive (it hasn';t at 10:30) so we are doing what we can inside. We are going thur the wood pyle and keeping anything over 4 ft without nails . We have other projects that we can use the wood. The rough carpenters wanted to toss out the used stuff. The cheap guy I am said NO.

8 ft piece of 4 x12 and 18 4x12 blocks. will be used on projects.

Pics to follow later

We had a good morning rain(heavy at times) good thing.. our water tight roof is leaking. Good to find out now.



the garage door had a problem with the brackets. The door didn't clear so he took out the grinder and grinded the perfect angle so it would.



The door is white and will be painted . The blue is the protective cover until the second layer of stucco is finished next week.

Not to be a smart ass at all-because it does in fact look like a 1st class bldg!!! Congrats!!! - but in contrast, when I build, I draw it up then saw the pattern on my mill,etc.. I definitely spent way less for my farm land, house(circa1979 & logs) shop, barns & chicken coops than this one Man Cave building, no doubt about it! Also, I live in the land of no zoning or bldg permits. Nice, but not happening from my pocketbook.
P.S., no I'm not prospecting to get the cost either!

I read your response to my wife and it was a head scratch-er for her also. I did draw up the plans with the help of the architect. I don't have a mill .. but I do have lots of dirt and rocks. I can have horses on my property but can't have chickens (it's scottsdale). I've built shed's and out buildings from left overs from large building projects when I had lots of time in the summer when I taught school. Working in the construction part=time and going to school.

What has change were the building codes. Building codes are good for saving lives. Do you know that the new codes are designed for a Katrina type wind storm. New bracing and nailing on trusses and joisting. I hired companies that paid a living wage to their employees. Nothing under the table.


I decided to build with this block because it will save energy cost in the future. It will also be our
safety shelter. It was built to withstand high winds and has a full fire sprinkler system in it.

What I.m sensing is the question why someone would spend this $$ amount for a man cave?
Look below at my response.


I don't have the final cost yet. I started with the idea of a steel building. That was quickly veto by the homes that surround me. I'm 63 going on 40 with a 16 month son and maybe another one on the way.

When I moved to AZ I wanted a house on two acres and without HOA. In Scottsdale you are going to pay for that. We purchased the house (23 yo it need a total remake.) I wanted a large Man Cave and someplace where friends can gather. Keeping it with design of the surrounding building force the cost issue.

I could have purchased an industrial condo which was already built.. but I wouldn't be close to my 16 month old and have him visit the garage and learn to wrench and fix things. We made part of it into a guest room for fellow travelers to visit.

Those future moments in time are priceless. So is it worth the cost .. yes.
Over 20 years it will still be there and great enjoyment and priceless time sharing knowledge to my son.

If It was to build this in Seattle, Portland or Bend OR it would almost cost the same. The material used was a little higher quality.

I love the South. You can get so much more the $$. The permits and fees cost 16K. They required a fence with wind shades. That was $3K. Then there was a dust permit and dust inspection. The real cost of bricks and mortar was less than the total cost.

The cost of living ..depends on where you live and what is important.

Thanks for you comment. I will have true cost in a couple of weeks.
