You can see the picks in the link below.
What did you use for a finish on it,the color is perfect! I want to do a wainscote in my machine shop office with t 111 . Nancy thinks its a really bad idea as it will be hard to clean,but I will probably do it anyway!

Ok, back to the house garage. Today, I decided to insulate the garage doors. After insulating the walls, drywalling and painting it, I felt this would only make sense.
I went to Lowes and bought 4 sheets of this

3/4" x 4 x 8.

to put on these


The first door all done. I cut each panel 20 1/4" x 53" which allowed me to bend the panels into place but still have a somewhat tight fit. I didn't want them moving all around when the doors go up and down.


I used the leftover pieces to do the second door and was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out. I was afraid it would looked pieced together.
I used small pieces and wedged them into the frame to secure the panels even more.


It really cleaned up the look of the doors and kinda matches the diamond plate on the lower walls.
Added benefit of reflecting any and all available light is a nice plus, too!!

Root....great job on everything. It really makes a huge difference from before on both your garage and the house garage

One question though, have you ever thought about turning the steps and landing sideways from where they are now? It looks like you could gain some space in front of the vehicles. I am assuming the steps are in front of the vehicles, correct?

good Idea....looks like a nail puller and about an hour of work and you could swap the existing steps to the right of the existing platform. No cutting involved except the hand rail

Thanks Kevin. The garage is 20'5"W X 20'11"D. We actually have more room with the steps like they are now. When we built the house, end of '90 to Jan '91, the steps were sideways to the right of the door (going in). We had smaller vehicles back then. I had a '90 Geo Storm and the wife had an '87 Nissan Sentra. Both fit nicely, but you had to leave extra space to walk in front of the vehicle on the right side.

Then as the family grew, we had to get bigger vehicles and the steps were in the way. I moved them to the center and gained more parking space, a full 20'11" instead of 17' or so.

We've actually had a '96 Dodge Ram 1500 and an '04 Ford Expedition parked in here at the same time with plenty of room.

Update on my clean slate in the pole barn. I'm slowly making it comfortable and as I work on something I change things around or add more stuff. (Work in progress)



And homage to my mother who passed away at the end of August '11. This was her '71 Superglide (Picture of a picture). Hung it in the shop. Had some mods to it...bored out to 80 over and even tho' it has a kickstart, she had an electric starter installed. Compression was so bad it'd just about throw a 200+ pound man over the handlebars and she didn't want to take her chances.
She rode it until about 6 years ago then she bought a trike. Legs weren't as strong as they once were and she was concerned she'd drop it at a light.

I organized my photobucket account and look what happened....most of my pic got deleted...

I have some cool news...I ordered my Racedeck floor for the house garage and it should be here sometime next week.
Thanks Jennifer (of RD)
Can't wait to get it started.

My Racedeck came today, 10 boxes!!! Too bad I have to work tomorrow But I'm off this weekend

I'm hoping it'll only take me a day to do. 20 x 21 garage. I guess it depends on the number of beers I have, eh?

Pic's will surely be posted.

It can't be any harder to put down than VCT, which requires glue, so I bet one solid 7-8 hour stretch will do it. Do you have to make any cuts?

Yeah, I'm gonna have to cut the sides to equal them out and center up the floor. I figured I'll have to cut tiles in half and use the other half on the opposite side. I understand I can use my table saw which will cut down on time.

Yup, I could hardly wait to get started!!! Couldn't wait for this weekend.

So here are a few pics of the underlayment I put down, the few boxes that I got started with and the progress.

I was surprised at how fast this Racedeck went down. It took me longer to get started than it did to lay tiles down.

I used weed barrier paper from the local blue box store. Only needed three rolls of 3' X 50' at about $10.00 a roll.

The reason I used the paper was to eliminate some of the "clacking" noise of the tiles against the concrete....see signature line

I did approximately 3/4 of the floor in about 4 hrs. I had to take a break due to the stairs being in the way. I plan on jacking them up a few inches and sliding a group of tiles (already assembled) under the legs.

Then I'll have to finish the edges. I'll need to cut the top (the opposite end from the doors) and the right side (left side in the pics) pieces to fit. Should be able to complete the whole thing by tomorrow afternoon.

My Racedeck floor is all finished and I must say it looks pretty good!! What a pleasure to work with this flooring. It was easy to order, easy to put together, easy to cut (with a table saw) and easy on the eyes.

Tell me what you think, but ultimately I have to live with it whether or not you guys think a monogrammed garage floor is cool.

Several different angles for your viewing pleasure.

Looks really good, I don't think I have seen a bad Racedeck floor yet!

I think you're right. I haven't seen a bad one either. It's definitely an upgrade to an existing floor, wherever they may be.
I was able to cover up a couple minor cracks without the hassle of mixing concrete or patching areas.
Gives the garage a whole new look, too.

The "clacking" you refer to, is that just on install, or is this a common thing with Racedeck?
