You would'nt happen to live in B.C. do you? I was stationed in Alberta last year and a couple of us were on our way to Spokane WA when our car broke down in a town called Creston.

Too bad you could'nt have added a patio off of the roof to get away from everything, but still enjoy the smell of grease and oil! Keep us posted, this look's like it's going to great when done!

Well, there you go- 6 degrees of separation!! Creston it is.

The patio- is actually a big deck and is under a beautiful blue sky today. Bud time this afternoon at 5:00 pm.

Well it took longer than I thought but I got the gable ends sheeted. Kind of difficult for my wife to lend a hand but a couple of times she made the difference between getting the job done and stopping early for beer ;-)

Went shopping for more building supplies and did some clean up. Karen picked up a hundred or more nails from the slab used for temporary bracing, and the like. Now the scaffold rolls nicely. BTW- rent those wheels for the scaffold. It is way easier on the body than heaving all that steel scaffolding around- all the time!

Got the posts and beam up for the carport and layed up a test rafter... Man that thing was heavy to get up by myself!

Yeah me too. I can't believe its actually in my back yard!
Thanks! After 13 years of engine swaps, tranny swaps, and rather regular vehicle repairs being done all outside in the rain and snow I feel almost guilty of spending so much time and $$$ on this. But, why not? We only live once so we may as well go for it!

The garage passed the inspection- so that's it for town scrutiny. Now, back to work. Here's a pic of the progress to Sunday night. The little small jobs that need to get done before simple big jobs sure can suck time. I din't get to roofing until Sunday 3:00 PM... worked until 7:00 PM.

I'm going to use red metal for the entire exterior structure and the white primed cement 4x8 sheets of siding that I've already purchased will go inside instead of drywall. I'm also going to coat the floor with white epoxy.

Does anyone have a recommendation about cost vs quality for the epoxy floor coating?

That will be a sweet set up! I'm very envious

It's been a dream of mine, but alas ... no space at the existing digs.

well i bought the cheap stuff at the depot ('1' part epoxy). Its ok, but i beat the hell out of it, and it will flake and bubble if water sits on it for more than a couple hours. I would either go with a 2 part epoxy, or have some guy come do it for $$$$$. The end result is that it works ok, and i never 'clean' the floor, just vacuum up the dust and chunks. It looked nice at first, and still looks ok after about 7yrs of abuse.

Thanks for the pics and the thoughts on the epoxy coating. The local home builder has the 2 part epoxy coating in grey only- no white. I hope to find some white 2 part epoxy somewhere. It looks like it'll cost me about $200 to do the job. Here is the progress from work tonight!
