Default 8 Years after moving in - The Airboxer Garage

Since moving in to the new build house in 2003, there were many other things that had to done first.

Now it's time to finish my detatched garage.

One or better 2 of the things I did before, finish the attached garage and finish my 71 911T.




This is my starting point.
Airboxer Garage Before

I also used the unfinished garage to build a paint booth to paint the green 911.



That's all gone, and the construction has started.



I will post more picture as I progress.

I was able to do the insulation of the roof last winter

R30.... the point was to do the whole roof and do not the ceiling of the garage.

Here is what the upstairs looked like



I used R30 Insulation



Next is to install the electrical.

After the ellectrical and the insulation was done, I got some help over Labor day weekend to install the drywall.



Yes, the posting is a little behind the work.

At this point I'm still finishing the drywall. The ceiling is painted and the lights are up, and I made some progress with trim and storage area.

This is now what I'm currently working on.







Next weekend I hope I can finish all the drywall and paint the walls.



Cheers

Is that the same 911?

If so - top marks for the backdating! I would love one of those!

The red one is a 78 911 SC, an other project I have in the pipeline.

1978 SC in Process

The green one is actually a 71 911T. In the meantime I upgraded the '71 from 2.2L to 3.6L.

Here is a video from the PCA AX at Verona

Wow, didn't know you had a detached too...I'm sure it'll turn at least as nice as you attached and 911T turned out.

Yes, the detached garage was build with the house, however, there were toooooo many other things to be done first. At least I did the small section, the wood workshop. because I needed the place to put my wood working equipment, in order to finish all (or at least a lot) other stuff.

Here are some pictures from my wood workshop next door to the detached.

Woodshop, woodshop, woodshop!

Actually, for some reason I can't see the pictures, but any time there is a woodshop, that is a good thing!

Nice car, too

Made some progress last weekend and the weekend before

The walls are painted



The one wall still needs to be painted, as soon I can move the wood sheets.



The overhead storage is ready for paint on the trim. I installed some recessed 12V lights I still had ( brought them back from Germany when we build the house) and did not use in the house.



Instead of Halogen, I used LED



Installing some German 220V outlets for my left over power tools I still have from good old Germany.









Next is to finish up all the trim, the sliding doors for the over head storage, install the rest of the outlets and order the 2 post lift.

Cheers

Time for an update.



Made some progress with the painting and the overhead storage. Put the frame and trim on the door.



I made temporare a cart for the plywood sheets to put on so I can move it around and out of the way. But now it's time for a better place. I made a smaller one which will fit in my wood workshop underneed the wall cabinets.

I had some left over hardwood which came with my decking material when I build the deck.



Got some wheels



Some left over 2x4







Now I had to clean up the space where the cart goes. A lot of left over material from projects.





Stuff is gone, now some fresh paint as long I can get to it



Fits perfect and I can pull it out if needed.



Here is also a picture of the garage from outside.



More to come Cheers

Question on your plywood storage cart -- does it topple over with the weight of the plywood? or does it lean onto the wall when you have it stored away (underneath the cabinets in your wood shop)? I need to build something similar for storage of half-sheets and odd pieces.
