Hope it's everything you want it to be. Sounds like you've had plenty of time to plan it. Think the electrical out carefully.

I second the vote for garage journal. You can spend days reading and gaining ideas/input there (as we do here-lol). It is all divided into categories - flooring, electrical, etc.. Good luck on your project!

Stuff really has went up for sure . I could have taken out a giant loan on mine , handed overs the plans and let someone else do it , It took me longer but I I saved about 17k I figured from the bids I got from others just doing it myself . Excited to see the progress on yours as you build. Keep us posted .

No - put up some nice interior walls first, and paint them. You will be much happier if you do it now instead of removing everything off the walls in a year or so to do it then.

It will make EVERYTHING look better.

Later . . .

Looks nice Mark. I would agree to not use the blown or blow-on type insulation. I had that stuff in a building one time and unless you cover every inch it constantly falls off or gets knocked loose. Not only that but the mice love to go condo in that stuff and it really stinks (literally) when they do that in the ceiling or wall adjacent to an area you use a lot. My new shop has one inch hard foam sheeting between the stringers and the metal with r-30 batt insulation in the walls and ceiling before being sheeted with either metal or osb. It's like a cooler, super easy to keep warm or cool and you have finished walls for anything you want to do. You're going to love your new home when it's all done. My wife calls my shop my house as I live out there more than in the house.....GB

Glad you have not had water issues Mark. For almost 1 year after my concrete floor was poured, the inside of my building condensed from the water evaporating from the drying floor.

Marky,
I like the carriage door look of your garage door. On my doors, I put a pin stripe vertically in the center of the door using 1/4" black 3M automotive pin stripe tape. Cut and press down at each section edge. When you stand back, the door will look even more like swing-out carriage doors.

Love how things are shaping up.

Looks great in the state of TN. Two meters on one address will result in one being on commercial rate. I wish I would have installed a 400 amp meter base and buried the feed line. Just make sure everyone is on the same page.

Loyd, Same here in Mississippi! Was going to build a "out building" here on some adjacent property, Entergy was going to charge commercial rates! So between them and the county not wanting to issue me a permit, I said the heck with them!!!!!
