The Garage Project begins

The Garage Project begins

Postby shocks » Sat Feb 01, 2014 11:29 pm

Started this thread on PH before remember TT :)

Like a lot of garages ours have everything but cars in it, time to sort this out, after 12years of accumulation.

Project is to :

Remove 2x Single Doors (rotted / busted / up and overs)
Remove pillar
Remove concrete span
Make good opening to new height, arches to go

Install RSJ
New Hormann insulated sectional
Door Operator
Door to rear garden
Form vapour barrier, frame out
Insulated Plasterboard / Skim coat
Plasterboard Ceiling, Skim coat
New LED down lights (instead of strip lights - looking at 3000 lumen variants)
Skirting

To Do's:

Flooring - TBD, trying to decide between Mototile / Ceramic / Resin or get machine polished finish to existing concrete+seal
Paint - wall colours
Mural or not-to-mural rear wall
Storage - Garagetek or Dura
External Lighting
Intenal Lighting for work areas

With the builders starting in couple of weeks its time to gut it back to bare shell.

Here is how it looks today :

Expected finish is late march, building works start 17/2, doors are the delay, they are expected early march, fit out should be done by then, final fix is the bits I'm swithering on

Lee I may need a good spark - current one is more evasive than saddam hussein circa 2003 - is Ross willing to help me ? will pay :)

Sounds great Steve and love the Elite cassette! :D
Look forward to hearing how it goes, want to get my garage sorted this year too. Would love to insulate/plasterboard it all out but reckon it will cost a fortune so it might just get painted!
Will be good to know what flooring option you go for, quite like the idea of polished concrete but no idea no much it would cost?

Yep way too many hours loading that thing only for it crash at the last minute during loading. Mind you probably wasted more hours getting to Elite status, quite a technically innovative game on an 8-bit, 32k platform :) http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/faq.htm#A4

See they have funding building up through kickstarter to do a new version :shock: might have play it again

Not sure what to do, options are :

Porcelain tile - can probably source good PEI5 tiles and get a friendly tiler in. Suspect this is the more expensive option.

Mototile - or other such variants - expensive for what they are

Concrete floor polishing, looks really good few local firms do it but mostly commercial application. Will be making enquires. Suspect the current slab is beyond polishing :(

That's pretty damn cool Steve.

I had garage floor paint in the unit and if it sees a lot of traffic daily, cars in and out, that seems to cause the most grief. Takes forever to dry if you want to top it up too.

I'd defo look into the tiles idea, worth the extra cost.

Looking to get some of these put up, not sure how many I need for a 22' x 20 garage :)

http://www.ecoledlight.co.uk/led%2D600%2Dx%2D600%2Dpanel%7E549

It's getting fitted out starting 17th - these would need fitting into ceiling (thats getting boarded up & skimmed)

Oh Very nice! At 3,220 Lumens each a wouldnt say you needed many! Without seeing the space its hard to say but ad go for 4 maybe 6 at a push. So will they need fitted and wired in before the 17th? Feb or March?

Thanks Ross, Al has recommended a different supplier for me and will probably be sourcing from his contacts, same thing but better price :) I just need to make sure they fit between the joists after the first fix is done

with the ceiling been done as part of job I'd asked them to leave 4 spur drops, and marked and through, where the leccy for each would be place, I'm figuring that will need to be figured out properly when they start. Is there anything I should be telling them to do or prep to make it easy ?

Would you mind if I got a look at the job before it starts? Just so I can scope out the wiring/ cable runs etc
