Ha! I think you are up to something!

"No more helis on the dining table? Ok honey, the basement is yours..."

Now if only I could throw away all of the kids toys...

I do have a work area setup in the basement, with homemade crappy looking electrical, 6 dollar tables, etc. but it is pretty small and is a pain in the neck to get all the stuff up the narrow stairway to the car and back down. I move all my stuff to the garage in the summer and set up there, it works, but I have to the share the space with her car, and all sorts of other toys (my car can sleep outside, but hers? No way. Strange considering I am the only one that actually cares. She won’t even take it to the car wash!!). It is pretty cramped up, almost impossible to keep organized.

Why am I whining again?? Oh, that’s right you make me jealous, hahahah!

When everybody actually is out to get you, paranoia is just good thinking.

As long as it works, it will suffice. If you want to make it look better, get some shelving and better power set up. If it looks clean, your wife may be happier with letting you take more of the basement.

Hey AltecLansing, When you get completely done you can put something like this on the garage doors.

You can use a helicopter or something else though. All you need to do is send this company a picture and for like $284.00 they will make this photo tarpaulin that goes on your garage door. There website was on the front page of MSN yesterday. Here is the site: http://www.style-your-garage.com

Some shingles went up today. They will finish the shingles in the morning. Forgive the darkness of the picture as it was starting to get dark when I shot them.

I may have a few pics today. Its been a while since any of the workers have come back. They have one days worth of work left, so they have been waiting. Right now, I'm having problems with getting the mason here to put some soldier bricks beneath the doors. They need to be reset.

I left windows off the back because I had planned on making work benches all across the back wall. Basically, one large table across the back. I could always cut one in later.

Man, I miss the eighties.

Underneath the two doors, the one on the side and the one in the back, the original concrete guy was supposed to pour my pad even to my brick. He stopped it at the block. So, under those two doors are nothing. My mason who did the brick, which also did the carpentry and roofing was to put in the bricks under the doors before the install. He hasn't made it back yet and he hasn't finished the last 10 feet of the roof ridge. He did manage to find the time to come get my last bag of mortor which he was to use for the soldier brick. If he doesn't come back, I can finish the last few items myself, but I would rather a mason did the last of the brick. I'm an electrician. I plan on doing the electrical myself. The carpenters are coming out today to install the last window and finish wrapping the building. I've been getting a price on the siding and found someone with a decent price that I may go with. I also need to check with the garage door people and see, if they need to come out before I have the vinyl wrapped at the doors.

Man, I miss the eighties.

Its looking great seems like the contractor is a little slow but I don't know what the agreement was.

Make sure and get insulated garage doors. I went with wayne Dalton thermo-shield and love them.

Thanks for the update. Looks great. If you add some windows or a big window above the work bench it will give ya more light. Also what did ya think of the garage door photo tarpaulins that I posted. You can use your own pictures too.

Insulated garage doors are worth it just for the fact that they don't rattle around like uninsulated.

Vinyl siding is simple to install if you want to have at that yourself.

yzchopper, I did check them out. They looked pretty cool. I already picked out a door sort of. Its an 18x8 insulated door. I haven't decided, if I want windows in it or not.

The carpenters are here working right now. I hope they will be done tonight. Then I can get someone to do the vinyl siding. I will also get the garage door people to measure the opening next week, to make sure that it will work.

It was decided to pour concrete under the door. The mason was too lazy to lay the brick, so he formed it and put quickcrete in it. He had already poured it before I knew he was doing it. If I had known, I would have reformed the landings and had it poured out over that too because my landings are too low. Once I regrade the place, they will be level with the dirt or below it. I have to raise them a few inches. More pics to come.

Okay, my carpenters are done. Or almost done. They had to remove the door so the floor under it can be done. They will be back tomorrow or monday to reset the doors. The next group to come in will be the people doing the vinyl siding and the garage door. I started to put in a few of the electrical boxes. I will also be doing all of the work in the little room. There are some steps there now, but once I get the sheetrock on the wall, I will remove the boards on the step and do them right. I'll take more pics as time goes on.

dpm? The wood on the block is treated lumber, if that is what you mean and it was sealed to the block.
