Last night we got another 6 panels on the ceiling, which puts me at about 54% done.



And I finished the small section under the panel box.




Saturday Im hoping to start / finish the front wall. At least the part between the garage doors.

Last night I finished up the last few pieces of metal on the south wall.



Installed the last light in the first row of 5.



Finished installing the lights for over the bench area.



Thursday night Ill probably get the OSB installed under the bench area and try to get the middle of the garage door wall insulated. If there is any time left, start getting the J and Z trims up.

Last night I got a late start but managed to get a bunch done.

-shoved the slab temp sensor into the PEX I ran under the floor. Used some string trimmer line to shove it in with, worked great.
-caulked and taped the tyvex etc.



-insulated



-got a bunch of sheeting up. I need to finish up nailers over the other garage door before I can go any further. Hope to finish up that and get the insulation and steel up past the other door this weekend, maybe.

Thanks!

Small step forward last night. Finished the last little bit of insulation under the window and put the 18' of OSB up for under the bench area.



I also cleaned up a bit and moved stuff around.

Thursday I plan on trying to finish up the garage door wall.

Looking good.

Did you use just one J channel at the ceiling? Meaning, no J for the ceiling just the walls?

Correct. Just J for the wall. The ceiling just shoves in above it. I also did the same thing on the wall corners, only J on one of the two adjacent walls. At like $0.80/ft or w/e that stuff is you want to use as little as possible.

Nearly finished up the front wall insulation and the steel. Ill finish the last 3 feet in the other corner when I do the adjacent wall. I just have too much crap stacked over there right now to bother.

Yes, the double box mounted high on the wall is for a possible TV some year.



Up next either more ceiling steel or insulation on the rear wall so I can finish up the rooms under the stairs.

This is going to be such a nice shop. I can't wait to see what you build out of it!

Thanks! I cant wait to move in and get back to working on projects instead of the shop. Insulation and steel is getting REALLY boring.


Insulated the first section on the rear wall and put up the last of the wall steel that I currently have.



And I cleaned up a ton so we have room for the "garage" sale this weekend.



I should be back to working on the ceiling and that rear wall next week.

Spent sat and last night working on the areas under the stairs.

Finished up the lower 2/3 of the rear wall insulation and all the OSB sheeting except for under the stairs. Ill zip that up later this week probably.

Also, Im very tired of playing "move the construction supplies game".

These updates are epicly boring.

Another late start but I got the area under the stairs sheeted and 3 more light fixtures up. I ran out of wire nuts so I was unable to power them up. Maybe tomorrow.

Thanks.

Propane. :gasp:

Finally back to working on the shop after spending a lot of time building this:





Then I played "move the building supplies" as well as moving some larger items from the garage to the new shop and doing general cleanup so that I could build my workbench. Its going to be 18' long and have 3 HF 44" bottom tool boxes built in under it (left 3 sections) and likely a 18" HF side box on the far right hand end to use as a "desk" drawer setup. I scavenged 3 6' bench tops from work that Im going to resurface with something tbd.

This is what I have so far. The 5 legs are welded up as of last night and Im starting to work on the cross support pieces / tool box supports.

Spent a bunch of time this weekend welding up the bench frame. Its nearly done except for one lower support between the 4th and 5th legs. I picked up the small side HF box this am to mount under the right section. Which is the reason for the extra metal rails at the top. More on that to come.

I TIG welded the whole thing as my MIG wasnt getting it done. The one weld pictured below I did sitting on the floor operating the pedal with my knee. Not my best work but pretty decent considering.

Took forever to get it clamped up and level. The leveling feet wont be that tall, I was just keeping it tall for doing the welding.

What was wrong with the MIG? Not doing this kind of work often, I found this type of welding very time consuming when I built my small welding bench, but it was also great for practice.

The deck/pool look stellar! How did you make the deck planks that wrap around the edge radius of the pool?

My MIG is a little pos 110V craftsman. Something must be wrong with it, other than the obvious, b/c I couldnt even tack up the legs worth a damn. So this was my other option.

It did take a while but I think itll be much stronger and it certainly looks nicer.

Thanks on the pool deck. As for the plans I did a very rough outline with solidworks (just to get some basic dimensions). Mostly though I did it the old fashioned way on paper and in my head.
