Your before pic looks like mine does now. Can't wait to see what you end up with.

Are you doing all the tape work yourself? That saves a lot of money if you know how to do it. I can't wait to see how it comes out, I'm always looking for ideas for my future garage.

Bud this is looking to be shaping up for some nice digs!

Those lights!!! Awesome idea. Where did you find them?

The only thing I can recommend is adding a storage shelf over the space that will exist when the garage door is rolled up. There is a significant amount there that can be added if you hang off the roof structure. Then its just a simple hanging shelf for all the xmas and other supplies. I still have not done that in my garage but it's coming soon if I can ever stop buying tools and equipment.

On the compressor side, if you can swing it, try as much as possible to run 220, but if you can't and or you do not see yourself running it a lot a 110v can do the job.

Its looking great though and some good progress on the repairs to the house structure. Doing it right!

No I'm not doing the tape work myself - I'm in the construction industry so I have cheap labor... and I appreciate the "art" of finishing drywall. It's something I'm terrible at and have no issue admitting lol

Thanks for chiming in man!!

I initially found the lights doing a google search for options and it linked me to an eBay ad. Further investigation proved it to be a true US based brick and motor - Peterson Parts. Below in the add is what made me feel good about the purchase... but I decided to pick up the phone and call direct with all my questions. The owner picked up the phone and discussed in depth any and all concerns I had... he even talked me out of a more expensive set of fixtures I was looking into and convinced me to go with the ones I eventually purchased... I paid him directly over the phone and they were delivered to my door within 3 business days... they're not installed yet but the transaction and customer service so far has been top notch



More storage is in the back of my mind. I thought about suspended storage system either above the garage door or along the back wall. With the vertical track extensions I added to my OH door it's going to limit the space a fair bit at this location. I've also added the attic ladder and I'm laying down more plywood (along with lighting) in the attic space above the garage so I'm gaining a whole lot of space... something we desperately need here in Texas since we don't have basements

With the additional dead load I'm going to be putting on the joists from the attic storage I'm a bit concerned I might overload the structure as is... let alone adding even more suspended storage. I'll eventually run the stick frame structural calculations and see if it's a good idea or not. Either way that's a great suggestion!

Everyone suggesting I add at-least one 220 is starting to make me think I screwed up. I'm not 100% positive my secondary panel can support it; I simply haven't checked yet. Regardless I used up my last breaker punch out to run the attic lighting, 2ea ceiling outlets for the future wall fans, and the new wall outlets. So if i need to add this one day I know for sure I'll have to install a whole new panel... which will cost $$$

There's a whole lot of 120 compressor options out there... when I finally get the funds to purchase one I'll like get a 20gal+, belt drive, oil lubricated... 120volt. This IR options fits that bill and shouldn't require any additional electrical upgrades:

I was going to compliment you on your taping work. Please compliment the hired help instead.

IR compressor looks the part. Thank goodness you're going for an oiled, belt driven unit. Oil-less ones will make you deaf (yes, I have one of the loud ones and hate it... )

Keep up the good work!

I'll certainly compliment them


Got the 2nd layer of mud down, sanded, textured and painted 2 coats. Also stained and poly'd the new man door and attic ladder panel (surprisingly this was a nice piece of wood and I'd feel bad about painting over it). Sanded down the poly and added a 2nd coat. Also repainted the front doors to match the upcoming overhead door... we went with a chocolate from the manf std color choices... should give some "interest" to the curb appeal of the house
































After we painted, this project has kinda turned into a bit of a headache. As with most thing when trying to reno a space in an older house... you run into unforeseen conditions. I knew there was water damage previously (why much of the drywall ceiling was removed) as well as the water intrusion issue I noted above... with it being ridiculously humid outside it's not helping my situation.

I started noticing some horizontal butt joint cracking in the old drywall. This isn't too big of a deal... just rub in some elastomeric caulk and chalk it up as a yearly maintenance thing... the proper thing would be to add some behind wall blocking in these locations to keep the joint from flexing but the effort really isn't worth it in my opinion as most locations will be hidden via storage anyways. We did add blocking where we butted the new drywall to the old and so far this hasn't been an issue in these locations.






Going back to moisture... this is where my headache is happening. There's a handful of locations where the texture/paint is completely lifting/bubbling off the drywall now these locations, so far, appear to be located at the water intrusion area, masonry vents and overhead door (all locations where there's a transfer of interior/exterior air. You have to start scrapping these failing spots until the finish isn't freely coming off anymore...












These spots grow like cancer






The hopeful solutions is to prime these areas with an oil based primer (this should provide a moisture barrier and promote better adhesion), 2day cure, float it out completely, sand, re-texture, and paint once again.





IMO - small bubbles; no troubles. Either this solutions or the next; the space is coming together and I'm getting really excited about finally get a proper garage. This issue may hre just force me to hold off on epoxying the floor... or I may end up just staining it for now - it's much cheaper, we'll see. I ordered most of the storage cabinets and workbench over the weekend with the Labor Day sales... all will be available for pick-up by the 22nd.

I decided against going with the Gladiator workbench and outlet... after reading reviews the outlet is designed with the power cord exiting out the back... this wouldn't allow me to butt the bench up flat against the wall... I knew this would drive me mental. So in the end I went with the Craftsman bench... has the same specs as the Gladiator but will will match the rest of the brand selection

At this time it appears all the bubbling/cracking has stopped. So we went fwd with oil priming the rest of the scrapped spots and floated the walls back out. Need to sand, re-texture and paint. Fingers crossed this works - I want my garage back

On a positive note I wrapped up installing the Peterson LED ceiling lights and WOW - I'm really happy with now they came out! We'll see how it looks when everything gets added back in there and I get to working under the hood... but at this time I'm really impressed and happy with my purchase!











Also wrapped up the attic lighting and switch... this is going to make things much nicer to access to storage storage space. Eventually I'll replace all the plywood flooring up there and sister the joists... but for now this will have to do

Looking good! That looks like a ton of light from those fixtures. Is that a single or double strip is each location? Approximate cost?

Which Craftsman bench did you go with?

I need to get some night pics... it's impressive. It's the double strip/non-frosted lens. All 4ea fixtures were shipped to my door for under $175.

The lights are really unassuming - they're only 1.5inch wide and less then 1inch tall... really REALLY sleek.

Went with the Craftsman Premium Heavy-Duty 8-Ft. Workbench with Butcher Block Top
