I ended up not doing very much of my own work at all on my garage.
The original plan was to do my own siding and roofing ... but when it got to be December, I decided against it.
All I ended up doing was the finishing up of the electrical, installing the garage doors and some shovel work of the back-fill.

There was considerable excavation done to remove the topsoil and get down to a clay base.

I haven't totalled up everything to the penny yet (scared to?) but I would estimate the total cost of my 24 x 34 "turnkey" to be around $40K.

Poured concrete drive today

Wow. My new concrete guy is good. I wish I had used him on the building slab too instead of the jail bird.

I took a bunch of photos. Here's one that shows the slab well:

You are doing a great job and I was thinking that your garage is bigger and better than most people's houses.hehehehehhe I am really interested to see the final project done so I can show the wife that when u do it right it looks like a extention of ur house. Do u mind me asking how big ur house is that the garage sits next to and do u have a garage already or is this the first 1 on the property. Great job again.

I have a lot-layout posted a page or 2 back.
My house does have an attached 2 car garage with an overhead apartment. There is a pic of that too. My house is about 2,600 sq ft including the apartment but not garage. My lot is 4.1 acres but all the improvements are on the southern 2.5 acres except for 1 of my 3 water wells.

They have to be painted so I haven't put on the fake hinges and handles yet.


The 20 inch radius rails get them up pretty high to the 10ft ceiling:


The clean room:



Again, here is what they look line on the Overhead door website:

Progress Report

Coming along with inside paint so I thought I'd post some pics of the progress.

Got the heat/AC unit installed in the main area and you can see the paint test board and paint scheme.


Another shot of the main area paint progress:


My wife is doing all the window trim for me!


The clean room is all painted and the A/C is in:


The restroom tile is coming along. I'm waiting on the guy doing it to finish another job and come back and finish this.


Here's a shot of the breaker box that I wired myself:

Anyone got recommendations on types of epoxy to use for my floor?
What do you think would look good as far as color for the floor also?

And what about the clean room floor? Maybe just some kind of sealer in there?
