The Garage Project 2
|I'm starting on the north and west
walls first and as you can see, the wooden shelves were the first things
to go. They were five feet long X 12" deep and have worked well for
many years, but
the only thing I have in store for them is fire wood now (they should
burn pretty good with all that oil on them).
|Here's the same wall but now it has
drywall on it. Now I've hung drywall before but I've never done any of
the mud that goes along with it, so this will be another first for me. I
figure if it doesn't look that good when I'm finished, it's only the
garage...right? But if it does turn out okay, then I might be doing work
on the inside of the house. Hum....lets see....how much effort should I
put into this?
The Craftsman tool box has my radio/CD player on it so I can
move it around depending on what area I'm working on. The outlet that
you see on the right side of the window is new. This will be used for my
tunes once things are all finished. I also added a double outlet to the
other side of the window as well because you can never have to many
outlets. Besides, I have something in mind that could use power once I'm
|That dirt bike belongs to my stepson,
Tony. It's a Yamaha YZ 450 and it hauls ass. How do I know? Because I took
it around the block awhile back. Now I haven't ridden a dirt bike for
over 14 years but it all comes right back once your on it.
I had to bang a few gears while I was riding it and found out that the
front-end comes up really fast when you do that.
Hum....maybe I should get another dirt bike? Yeah right!!
Little did I realize when I started this project that moving stuff from one place
to another turned out to be like an exercise program. I hope it's all
worth it once I'm finished.
|I dry walled around my swamp cooler
too and stopped right next to it, for now (call it the "first
phase" of the project if you will). I plan to do more but this is
all I had room for at this time. I also trimmed out around both windows,
just like you'd see in a house. Hey, nothings to good for the garage ya
It's hard to see here but that electrical outlet
that you see to the right of the window used to be a single and now it's
a double outlet. I thought it might come in handy for things in the
