This was last night, after it was all formed up, wire and rebar in.


The concrete truck can about 8am this morning, concrete poured and broom finished.

I was happy the way it turned out, I even tried to make it look nice by brooming around the column supports.


A view from the road, can't really see much, but it'll have new doors real soon.

I ordered 3 1/2 yards to make sure I had enough. I had plenty and kept saying to myself, "more?" We just kept forming up more sidewalks.



Next step, throwing some paint on the walls, which I'm dreading for some reason.

It's coming along well and ties in well with the house. I can't wait to see the final product. I know you can't wait to get into it and actually do some work.

Well, I'm making some slow progress, wish it was going faster.

I have part of the walls repainted. It's everything at standing level or what I could reach off the short step ladder. Then I moved up to the corner to get behind one of the speakers and trimmed it out.


Took the foil backed insulation off one of the doors, getting ready to take out the door and replace it.


Taking out the door turned into a nightmare. Square head nuts, all 5/16 bolts but some of the nuts were 7/16, some were 1/2 while a few were 9/16". While about half came off, the bolts just spun in the old wood door. Finally after about 2 1/2 hours, I got the door out. I cut them right down the middle to make it easier to handle them.

Then while I removed the old trim I heard a creaky sound, I tried to move but bam.
right on the noggin.

Since I raised the floor level, I had to reframe the door openings.


Notice it's dark outside when this was taken. It was a long day, door reframed.

As I unpacked the doors, I noticed this panel.
I'm not sure if Wayne-Dalton will replace the panel or not. I bought these doors back in March and they have been sitting on the garage floor waiting on the floor to get done.

I don't have a pic but one door is up, today I will do the other door, hopefully it will go better. It won't get finished as I'm waiting on a piece of hardware, which was missing on the first door and borrowed from the second door.

Nutts, just read this thread from the start. From what you started with to what it is now (even unfinished) is awesome. The house is beautiful. Very homely with just the right touches. Your vision and hard work to bring it all to reality is a credit to you. I will look forward to following this build all the way.

ps - The GT aint half bad either. I have a soft spot for that series 'stang

I am hoping you are planning to retain the gas-station feel of the garage and will be successful in that regard.

Thank you. There were days I was so frustrated along the way, working on the house, I wanted to give up. The wife would tell me to take a break and that it would be worth it in the end. She has given me a ton of morale support, especially on "her" steps. I told her one day, if just one person stops and say it looks nice, it would be worth it, there has been more than one compliment.

After the garage is back together, I'll get some more pics of the GT. I've had a few people ask for more pictures of it. I'll try to start a thread on it in the future, just give me some time.

I am somewhat keeping it the same, just making it more practical to me. Hopefully if we ever sell the place, the next owner will appreciate the work I have done and make it easier get the place sold.

Thanks Shane, I've learned alot along the way. It's amazing what you can learn by reading a little and watching some home improvement on TV. Get some knowledge and then do some hands on makes it self satisfaction.

For what we bought the house and what we put into it, I feel that we can easily get back out of it. My time and what I have learned along the way is priceless but was well worth it and I try to pass onto others what I have learned, sometimes learning the hard way.

Well, I haven't updated for a few days, atleast not with pics.

One door done.


and both doors done.


I bought a roll of coil stock the other day, now just have to borrow the brake to wrap the doors. I've been doing a few little things in and out around the garage. I have most of the trim painting done, so I'm going to try to roll on some paint tonight.

I've also been tryin gto figure what to do about the ceiling. I think I might be doing it sooner than originally expected. I wanted to do it this winter but since everything is currently out of the garage, no better time than the present.
