September 27th – Garage extension update


I have been holding off posting an update on the garage extension.  There have been so many little things happening out there that I have been waiting to sum them all up together.  It is Friday afternoon and the work is finished for the week.

Since my last update:

  • the ceiling has been drywalled and mudded
  • the walls and ceiling are now painted
  • the electrical is complete and approved – (There are so many spot lights and fluorescent lighting strips that you could perform dental surgery in there.) 
  • The floor was given two base coats of gray and a high gloss top protective coat.  (Wooo….sitting in the house, I could smell the strong fumes coming from the garage. It looks great but I don’t know why they didn’t  faint while applying the paint – brutal)  

  • Today they built lots of storage shelves in the office and around the garage.  More work must still be done to finish off the large work bench
  • Still to come is the hoist. Its on order.  ( Note the lighting around the horst area. It looks like an art gallery)

Hoist will go in the recessed ceiling

I’m sure Warren is more than anxious to move his cars into the new facilities .  For the last two weeks, his poor olds has been sitting outside, exposed to all the elements.  It has never been treated like that before. 

Next step:   move in the furniture into Warren’s office area.  He has a couch, desk, two mini frigs and lots of framed pictures and memorabilia. He’s talking now about a big screen TV.  Will I ever see him again?

This is the sign above the door to Warren’s office.  Says it all…..

    Glenn pointed out that you must mean hoist not Horst!

  2. I won’t let my husband see this blog post – he’d be so envious! Actually, I think I am too – beautiful!

    You will rarely see him but always know where he is.
