Fire blocking is not used much any more as the wall board should have a fire suppression rating. It (blocking) used to be required on walls attached to the dwelling area. Now in our area not even wallboard is required if you are using plywood and fiberglass insulation. I think they figure the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors will warn you before a fire can get big enough. These are required in our area and must be attached to the home electrical circuit so you don't forget to change the batteries.

Sorry for the late reply on the fire blocking. I have been working like a dog lately. The blocking is for the diamond plate I will be installing on the lower part of the wall. I told my father in law not to block...but he did. So I have to just go with it. Also the friend who is helping him is a general contractor.....I think some one took the test for him...get my drift. Oh well free labor meant extra wood. They were going to block the entire 2nd floor joists on the bottom but I stopped them and had them use a long single 2X4 on the bottom nailed to the bottom of each joist. They also didn't use a rim joist..idiots....oh did I say that! Oh well old school (father in law) and no school (contractor friend). Haha...gotta laugh so I don't cry. I could go on about the way they did some other things but won't. I have been working on the space by myself now for a while. But I have to complete it cause I have to be out of my current office by the end of November. I have ran all the electrical and networking cables. I hung all the drywall myself and almost done with the taping. I don't need a great taping job due the paint Job I will be putting on. Kind of a rag texture with rocket red, gray and black. The floor is bare concrete painted gray with yellow baseboard. The framing was done with ten foot studs so I can put in a sloped metal ceiling. kinda like a "shed" look to it. The ceiling fan I have is a scaled down version of a P-51 mustang airplane with a three bladed "prop". It looks really cool. Once I get some paint on the walls and the ceiling up I will post some more pics.

Okay I'm late on htis one to. I'm real proud of my shop. It is 30x32 (960 squ ft., my house is 990 squ ft.). I'm saving for a drill press and a band saw. My dad is a wood worker and scrounger, he built the wood benches out of palletts and plywood from a semi trailer all free. I built the welding table from semi trailer parking jacks again free materials.

From Gravel to Garage...

I sign papers next week to close on a house that has a 2-car garage and 4-car shop!

For the last couple of years all work on the 49 has been done in my carport or laying in the gravel driveway.

Moving From This...




To This...

2 Car Garage



4 Car Shop


Both areas need to be taken down to the drywall, clean-up old wiring, repaint the walls and ceiling. I'll thouroughly clean the floors and the 2 car will get epoxy paint on the floor. The larger 4 car shop I'll be working out of, with lots of welding and grinding going on so it will not get painted (plus it'd cost too much!)

Not only will my new home be 600 sq ft bigger than my current box - just the total garage/shop space sq ft = my old house sq ft!

And I'm going from .25 acres in downtown to a wooded private 1.25 acres!

This is not my dream house/shop but a huge step in the right direction!

Congrats Rambo! Very wise idea to totally clean and arrange it your way prior to moving all the car stuff in.


In a while, Chet.

Thanks Chet, Having a shop has been a long time coming!

I wish I could just move in but I really don't have a choice as there is to much hokey stuff going on... I'll give you an example...

In the picture of the 4 car shop in the back looks like a cabinet and sink....



...I was thinking...OK a place to wash you hands, no problem...but I got to looking closer and it has a flexible spout coming out of the sink...hmmm....looked underneath, no trap plumbing...but there is live on/off switch and the underneath of the sink cabinet smelled of solvent...thats right folks a home made OPEN solvent tank, with no safety lid...oh...and whats that directly above the "tank" er..sink?...a nice ignition source or "lightbulb"...DOH!

There's also a few of those "Honey, what does this switch do...On,Off,On,Off...anything?"

So, hopefully it won't take too long to sort things out - 'cause I want to start working out there!
