Default Garage Project

Now that the weather froze my ass out of the yard into the house, I figured
to send up a few pics of the Spring/Summer project. As you see the old one
was beyond repair and too small. So we made it disappear. Took a couple of
weeks to clean all up for the concrete guys. One of two parts that we farmed
out. I don't do concrete and the weather did us in on the roof part. After the
concrete cured we started the framing. Each side had 3 sections.

And than the weather arrived (damn it). At this point all materials were
delivered so we were bracing for impact. Some of the stuff went lasagna.
As the weather opened up a bit we started setting the wall sections.
The inside is 10 foot high. The base is 40' X 42'. The trusses were badly
bent with the weather but with the 40 foot length we could straighten them
as they were going on. The tractor with the boom thing was big help.
The front wall was stick built as it had to be done after all the trusses were
installed.

Another bad weather was to come in so we had to hire the guys back to
whip up the roof. With 4 guys and a tele handler in two days it was up
and inside was finally out of the weather. So we went back on our schedule
on the project.

The outside went well, the weather was cooperating. The man bucket was
indispensable for working on the soffit, fascia, gable end installation.
Once the outside was wrapped we proceeded to the inside. we planned a
small room and a bathroom in a corner. We have water and propane brought
in so now we have a guest room arrangement in the corner. By now the
whole thing is finished short of a couple trims and stuff but definitely winter
ready.

Every picture I am impressed at how neat and orderly everything is.
Now the snow can let 'er rip, you will be working inside.

Looks good. If it is like my garage, it is already too small.
