I thought that was a GT2 wing for the 991 there.

Looking good Steve, there does seem so much more space in them when they are empty!

Re flooring: I bought the less expensive recycled material black checkerplate patterned tile from Mototile and am very happy with it.
It has adequately hidden the appalling lunar surface of the concrete pad that got laid in the pouring rain a couple of years ago.
My creeper wouldn't behave itself on the concrete, but does on the tile, and if I have to lie on the tile to get to something lower, then its not too uncomfortable or cold.
I've only had them down for a few months so can't really comment on durability.

matters of the man cave, next update.

]Image

Front harling now off ready for....

Image

...removal of old concrete beam and knackered 30year old garadors

Image

Tip, supply kettle and refreshments to keep the work crew in good cheer and add in those wee extra bits you forgot on job

Image

Back door in...

Image

Progress has slowed a bit, coming up is :

(1) Central pillar / old concrete beam out to create room for new 15' x 7' new door
(2) RSJ install and finish
(3) Floor - unfortunately it's like the Great Glen, 3" valley drop edge to edge, rethink on how to level as HD top is 15mm max

Builder is doing measure up to level the floor, quite shocking state the old concrete slab. Will need to get it level for final choice on flooring :

(4) Porcelain full body PEI5 tile -or-
(5) Mototile / Ecotile - my god these are expensive (35sqm 1300 quid @ Ecotile !)

Unexpected costs yet to be provided :

Floor levelling

Not Yet fully costed :

Floor Tiles per above - Budgeted £800, expect this to now be £1200 isn
Alarm linked to house system
Sound system - may just move the good old fatboy in use my old speakers :)
Garage storage

More to follow as further progress made, we're on a slow down at mo as garage door is now delayed until w/c 10th March putting job back 2weeks.

RSJ arrived !!!! Door still estimated for next week, getting closer.

Only bugger is just got the news that they need close to 4ton of material to get a level on the concave 30year old concrete slab... £1200, 500 materials and 700 labour. Bugger.

Still on the to do list :

Yep - had to insist on that :) Cheeky beggar was going to leave the old one (builder) - when sparks were onsite I queried it to them and they agreed.

Next update... from this

Image

...door arrived and starting the frame build...

Image

...getting the front work ready for finishing...

Image

...door in !!!

Image

Next up :

Lathe work to be completed
Door borders / rendering
New gutters
Floor levelling
Moving misplaced ceiling power - out of position for operator and looks messy !
Tiles to be chosen - Porcelain PEI 5 Full Body 60x60's !!! or was it 30x30 :coffee:
Lights on way - Yeaaaaahaaa
Tiles to be laid
Lights to be installed
Internal PIR to be installed
External lights to be installed

Still to do :

Garage storage, still looking into this, may end up with fitted units

Getting closer :) Time to start thinking about bringing back the toys from storage.

Had update on new front door - eta 4 weeks for the Hormann TPS :)

Take a look at Garageprice.co.uk for storage - way cheaper than Dura and although not quite as sexy, ultimately much better value for money. Can order them in any RAL colour so you can even get them to match your car ;)
