Default The Marshall Garage Project

I remember coming across this site years ago when I was in post secondary. I always dreamed of owning my own home with a garage to MAKE my own. My wife and I have recently ( April 2013 ) moved into our home located in Edmonton Alberta.

Last year was quite expensive ( move in costs and a wedding in Vegas ) so I didn't have much "play money" to spend on the garage. After working hard ( 2 jobs for 4 years ) and spending wisely, I am ready to slowly start my garage project.

So far, the garage is pretty bare. It has been drywalled, and taped (code here in Edmonton/Alberta). I have put up some temp shelving for storage to get things off the floor for the time being. I am looking for as many pointers, suggestions, etc on this project. I want to take my time, and do it RIGHT.

Her is what I am hoping for ( so far )
- 2 stage lighting ( flourescent as well as pot/can lights )
- two tone paint ( of course ) - green on the bottom, black stripe, and white on top
- Built in custom cabinets ( father in law is great at this )
- MAYBE just MAYBE do something with the floor - note sure what though
- Audio system - My mother in law gave me an old 5.1 system that I will use
- Mobile work bench on casters so I can still actually do some work in there
- Additional electrical - sub panel with 220 for a possible air compressor
- Antique posters/prints similar to the BMW M3 thread

I know this list will change over time, however I am ok with that. Anyways, here are a few pics of the garage and a few from my wedding in Vegas ( since I know you guys and gals love photos )

Thanks in advance!

So, why is it the "Marshall" Garage Project? Does your choice of green for the bottom have something to do with it?

Being that the weather has been getting better the past few months, I have been able to get some work done.

My father in law recently moved from his garage and is in process of finding a new facility. He is storing a lot of his tools in my garage for the time being. The only "catch" was that there wasn't 220v for his welder, saws etc... Not a bad catch as he wired a sub panel and 220v for me. Good stuff!

Here is a photo of "part" of his old garage.



Here is the sub panel and outlet install that we did this weekend.






Next was fishing the wiring to where the overhead fluorescent light will be. This is one of two fluorescent lights that is part of my 2 stage lighting set up ( tubes and can/pot lights ).



I needed to add a few more outlets as the builder only put one on each wall - fools....



Next, was insulating around the sub panel




Once the sub panel was wired up, we boarded it back up.







If you were looking closely, you may have noticed an electrical box near the ceiling.... This is a little preview of what is going up there.....





More to come.......

It's moved but I'm not sure why your pictures aren't showing up. It appears that you have put IMG tags on attachments. I don't recall seeing that done before.

Strange.....They worked before. What is the best way to put the photos on the post within the text - that way I can add a description to each photo.

Thanks
