Reno's well underway at this point:

Overhead door should be procured, delivered, and installed within 2wks.

Electrical outlets, plugs, boxes, rewired panel, new ground/rod, etc roughed in.









Relocated and installed new attic ladder.






New up-to-code insulated mandoor/frame hardware installed as well.

Not sure if anyone noticed but I had a little water intrusion issue off to the left side of the garage where the foundation elevation changes. It was tracked back to a roof leak (a really terrible engineering detail) that will be addressed during my roof replacement... but for good measure on the exterior side I decided to pull back my zeroscape, waterpoof the foundation, grade/slope/tamp the dirt, add some geo fabric... then replace the rock.

Do it RIGHT - do it ONCE














Drywall patch work completed and all rock hung. Started scrapping, tapping, and floating today. She's moving along well

Umm...Am I missing the part about Air Conditioning? In case you hadn't noticed, San Antonio gets hot as **** during the summer.

Nope... it had not been discussed yet but is a good topic to bring up

I've thought about this... and one day I'll likely add a portable A/C unit... but they're expensive and not something I necessarily need atm. I'm hoping to install a unit similar to the Whynter ARC-14S (14,000 BTU's). For connection of supply and exhaust I'm thinking of retrofitting a window like kit to one of the existing masonry vent blocks... but this is likely a year out. Hacksaw did something similar in his garage and it works pretty well!




EDIT - We've insulated the space along with the garage door in preparation for this future addition

I was a guest at Lackland AFB one summer about 20 years ago. After 8 weeks of Basic Training, I spent the entire month of August doing yard work around the base while I waited for my tech school to start. Absolutely miserable.

I've been looking at split systems for my garage. Like your house, I have a brick exterior and no windows in the garage, so adding a cheap window AC unit is considerably more involved than it sounds. Split systems can be as cheap as $800-900 + install, but no clue how reliable they are.

Those 14k BTU units suck big power. Make sure you have a dedicated circuit for it.

BTW: My garage doors are right up against the ceiling of my garage and the 8500's work great. Much quieter than any overhead GDO, belt driven or not.

I used the Rustoleum concrete stain, looks awesome but I'm afraid it's not incredibly durable. 40 hours on my hands and knees grinding the sealer off was not the hi-light of my life either. Liftmaster 8500 jackshaft garage door opener is solid, no low hanging center track and it has an automatic engaging pin that locks the door down

Wow that's a very nice looking garage! Yh I don't think stain will looks as durable but I'm sure the ever changing patina will still look nice!

First layer of tape/float completed... starting to look like a garage again... well at least it's starting to look like a garage with a complete ceiling













New man door installed and all trim completed... installed a 180degree peephole there as well
