This build is still moving forward now its time to extend it out 4ft to the right side where the concrete is. Heres a pic of basicly what Im going to do. Ive already got the metal and wood sitting in the garage, Im just waiting for me to have time off from work to do it and clear weather for 3-4days. Ive also got the metal trim for the garage door frame on order. Then Ill add a man door on side of the garage door, wich is also sitting in the shop already. The 4ft wide by 20 long by 7ft high extension is going to be one large shelving system to put all my tools, toolboxes, benders, welder, and cutting bottles on. That way I can easily just slide out whatever I need and still have a 20ft x 20ft area of open space just to work in. Also I found my original drawing I pitched to the gf about what I was gonna build... Its pretty accurate, and 4th grade-ish
Havent been able to make any progress on the shop. Ive been working 17hr shifts the past 2 weeks and only had 2 days off since. Wich was spent resting. Anyway my g/f got me a all black hobart autoarc helmet for my bday. So I painted it. Halo colors.
Still going forward just REALLY SLOWLY. Finally have money to put into it but no time. Im working 17hr days ever day of the week for the past 5 weeks and I still have about 1 and a half to 2 month of this to go. But the moment I have time off Im extending the side out. Anyway even with 17hr shifts Im still finding time to do some things to it. Did what I think is one of the greatest improvements to the shop, a man door. Im so tired of having to pick that 120lb door up by myself without the springs on it. Now I can work on the garage door springs and not have to have it open to get back out of the shop if I cant fix it. Also its alot easier to heat the shop if only the man door is cracked open. Still need to do some trimming but not too worried about it right now, wierd part is the door just happens to be the same color and the metal siding.
What else would they be called? In my 18 years of construction and 1000's I've installed that's what we call them.
It's just a door. Other doors that are (far) less common get descriptors. For example, his garage door would either be a "garage door" or a "roll-up door," though true roll-up doors are different. I find it amusing that people add a descriptor to the most common type of door.
100 Characters is not enough to have an interesting/relevant signature.
27 years in the home construction business and we've always referred to them as "man doors". It differentiates them from "patio doors", "closet doors", "trap doors", "access doors", and "garage doors".
I got some more time off for another surgery for them to put my face back together. Got a little bit done and then ran out of time. Kinda had to make some stuff work. I still have to trim again and do the front section, but I cant until I get time off work and the metal roofing place is open on the same day. I also took everything and put it in the center so I can start making benches/shelves. To this day I've made everything on my crawler without a bench,vice, or anything flat. I should have a lot of storage now and have a wide open 18x20x13tall area of open work space with 6Lx20Wx8T of storage. haha its a little unorganized at this time. If u look at the metal polls on the right side, everything from the metal polls to the right wall is what I added.
