May 12, 2012 - Paint
Kicked things off with a painting party. Sealed the sheet rock with PVA.
Huge thanks to all who helped out: Trever, Ed, Sam, April, Steve, wife, etc. Thanks to Tony for lending the scaffolding.




June 10, 2012 - More Paint
Very slow process due to lack of dedicated time. Putting in a couple hours each night. Paint is done except for a second coat for the workshop and office area. Massive thanks to my Dad who helped out a ton over the last several weeks.

Paint scheme is very simple. Solid light grey with white doors and trim. Fan, speaker grills, light fixtures, etc will all be white. It's pretty boring. I've done the multi-color stripe scheme in past garages and it usually looks great but I'm going for a cleaner laboratory look for this one.

Decided to try a powered roller rather than spray and back-brush/roll. Purchased a Ryobi airless paint sprayer station with roller attachment. It uses a standard roller and sprays paint on to the roller when triggered by the user. It works pretty well but the ergonomics are lousy. The paint is fed through the handle so there's no option to use an extension. This limits your stroke especially on the ceiling. Still saves a bunch of time compared to constantly loading more paint from a tray.

Really starting to take shape now. If I didn't hate painting so much I would have helped. I painted mine bright white semi-gloss to help improve the lighting.

SUBSCRIBED, great build. I don't see any overhead garage door openers. What is the plan for them?

Looks like a great place to keep your equipment. Size is on a grand scale and I'm sure you will have no problem getting it filled up. Just wondering what you were thinking about when painting the ceiling with the roller... I know I would be thinking about the finish line and time to clean up. I'm certain that is why I would have had a pro come in do this work. Fantastic build and looking forward to seeing more and how you fill the space with your treasures. And, the best part, another great build here in the Pacific Northwest! Nice.

All the best,

Ody.

PS: My Dad likes to help out too. Nice of you to recognize his efforts here as well.

Pre-wired for shaft mounted openers like the LiftMaster 3800 Side Mount. I wanted to keep the ceiling clear of obstructions.
No immediate plans to put in openers. The three car garage attached to the house will still serve as the primary garage for daily driven vehicles.

Awesome build. We are happy to be a part of it.
For the earlier poster, a densifier treatment activates free lime in the concrete. This creates a denser, harder, less porous surface. It also eliminates dusting and efflorescence. This particular product, HD39 also has a water repellent built in.

We refer to it as the "anti-coating".

Can't wait to see the rest of the build.

Interior paint is done. ~15 gallons of primer/sealer and ~27 gallons of paint.
Ceiling speakers (4) installed in main shop - speakers before lights, music is a priority.
Light fixture installation in progress.

^Speakers are Polk Audio RC80i - 2 way speakers with 8" drivers. Nothing special. I'll be using 2 in the office, 2 in the fab room, and 4 in the main shop. These will be supplemented with Polk and Sunfire powered subs.

Curious about how you're setting up your audio. All drive off a multi channel home theater receiver? Multi 2ch zone amps? Volume controls? Speaker switches?

I'm with you - music before light

Cheers,
Keith

^The four speakers in the main shop are controlled by 2 volume controls. The two speakers in the fab room are controlled by 1 volume control. Office speaker will run directly from the amplifier. I'm currently using 1 multi channel receiver and one 4 channel amplifier. All speakers and subwoofer lines terminate in the office.

Is that a TM-1 under the dust cover?
Would love to see what you have made with it!

August 4, 2011 - Saw cutting control joints the morning after the pour. Cuts are 1-1/4" deep and 10' on center. These will be filled with flexible crack filling epoxy.


jaredfloyd

That is one bad azz shop. I am building a shop with the same construction t-walls then the slab and want to saw cut the floor. When you cut the floor dose the cut go in to the t-wall or is it held back?

The Sunfire sub amazing. Where do you plan to put yours?

Good eye. It's a recent acquisition for me (found used locally in great shape), I haven't even turned it on. I have a few more details that I'm forcing myself to finish on the shop before I start running it. Once I get it up and running all other productivity will grind to a halt.

Lifts are up and running. Huge thanks to Trever, Kelsey, and my Dad for helping me stand them up and assemble. Standing them up with three people total was much easier than I expected - no rigging or hoists required. Lifts are used Rotary SPOA9's purchased from Frank at Standard Industrial and Automotive Equipment, Inc via GJ thread - http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=139417
Franks service has been fantastic - highly recommend doing business with him.

Lights are all in. I used a combination of used bulbs (thanks Craig) and new ~6000k bulbs and it's bright - really bright! I replaced the can light bulbs in the office and shop with LEDs for brighter light and longer service plus the cost was barely more than the trim rings I was shopping for and installation was easier.
Shop ceiling is nearly complete with lights, speakers, and outlets. Just need to install the ceiling fan and attic access doors. So far lifts have been used for routine maintenance on the daily drivers but the fun projects will start soon.
