That's not a garage. It's more like the Starship Enterprise shuttle bay :smt007

Fantastic job Doros :smt012

Unbelievable, no half measures there. This car of yours is going to be something else based on the work that you have put into the garage. The inspection will have to be put off for a while, I am going away on business for 2.1/2 weeks this Sun, but I do intend returning.

Are you going to tell the lads/lasses about the radio location device that you also use when pet minding (this is another ingenious Doros gadget).

Keep up the good work amazing us :smt012 :smt012

A few piccys of some additions to the garage. A steel bench - welding table I made, tall enough to accomodate the air compressor and an air-line circuit with two bench outlets and another outlet via the reel. I also added a wall fan, a couple of posters and our artists masterpiece :smt003

Close up of the poster, as suggested by Chris and Sarah.

That's it for now, I hope my next update in this thread to be a new floor, still a distant thought but who knows, I may come across a tile bargain.

and indeed, here it is :smt007 :smt003

It rains twice a year and it rained the day I had to empty the garage :smt009 :smt009 :smt009
Any way, it has been a laborious past week, taking all my stuff out, carrying materials and all, but was it worth it? You bet!

Day one. Thankfully nothing got dangerously wet.
Image

Everything out. Looks good empty.
Image
Image

Levels being marked with the aid of this (borrowed) laser level.
Image

Work in progress. An experienced friend of mine was called in to lay the tiles.
Image
Image

And voila.
Image
Image
Image

And my little helper, always by my side, helping.
Image

I need to add a few details like edge trim and also refresh the grey paint on the walls. I'll start putting things back in tomorrow.

Carpets Darren, with all the cutting and welding that you do that must be a "Health and Safety" fire hazard.
If I had a tiled garage floor, all the tiles would be broke/chipped through me dropping things - it's a senior thing!
Dorros - "an experienced friend was brought in", I recon that he is just a passer by you pulled of the street for the photos, you are probably an expert tiler and do not want us to look like amateurs. :lmao :lmao It's looking good there, keep up the good work. Have a good weekend with the lads in May, unfortunatelly cannot be there.

I know this is too much for a garage but I couldn't resist.
Image

That's 2cm thick laminate glass with more than 100 emblems underneath.
Image

And a nice pic of the living room .. erm.. garage from outside :smt003
Image

Yes, the green toolbox looks out of place but only comes in that color. And no, I'm not painting it.

See you at Stoneleigh :smt006
