That looks good. It won't take much and it will seem smaller...it's surprising.

Finally----

After an 8 month delay, the shop exterior is finished.

The r 18 overhead doors go in on Wednesday.

I thought I was going to have problems with the electric, but I talked to the electric company. I have to remove the meter on the original building, and have to relocate it. I also get to install a second meter next to the first.

That will allow me to have 400 amps for the single phase, and a second 400 amp panel for the phase perfect converter!!!

I should get 192 amps of three phase according to their website!!!!


Yea



Steve

I haven't really looked into garage door openers so I really don't know what's out there but we have installed a couple of them made by chamberlain that you can use your smart phone to control/monitor.

Finally talked the wife into spray foam for the shop. We are going for 1.5 inches of closed cell foam. Should be a r 10 insulation value.

Here is what it looks like so far.

Ok- I am in need of help/ advice.

When building the frame for the overhead doors, I screwed up. On both doors I have a piece of 3/8 plate that is used to mount the 6 x 6 posts to the concrete. There is a part of the plate that is under the door seal. This keeps the door from closing all the way, and allowing rain water to enter.

I figure I have two options, remove the steel that is in the way. Or modify the door seal , add a seal to the floor.

I can't get to the steel with a metabo cut off disk.

The idea of cutting the plate with a plasma or torch doesn't sound good either.

One door gets lots of traffic going in and out. Both forklift and truck traffic.

Any ideas??

Steve

Fab a plate (sill) to connect the two 3/8 plates then use threaded inserts in the concrete, make sure that the bolts clear the door seal area; then bolt the new Sill plate down with flat-head bolts and you're good to go...
Easier typed then done.
Might bevel the edges of the new plate.
Maybe Epoxi the plate to the concrete.
Might silicone the plate to the concrete...

Entropy-

I don't know why I did not think of that! I was wanting to do something hard.

Clint-

I can't get a picture today, I am already at my day job, but I will get one tomorrow.

Entropy-

I think I might order a piece of 3/8 aluminum flatbar tomorrow. With the aluminum I won't have to worry about rust.

I am thinking about countersunk tapcons and adhesive. Anyone know a good brand?

Steve
