Got the lights running in the new part and Golf in there so tomorrow we can take the lights down in the old section and install some noggins and then insulation and plasterboard :)Got the garage door all ready for installation on Saturday so should pretty much button everything up at the weekend.

Yes sir :D.

All finished and working perfectly. I'll get some photos up later I need to pop over to my brother's to help him finish a shed!

Later today I'll get paint on the walls and tomorrow assemble and put up my wall cabinets :D

Well didn't get back from my brothers in time to paint the garage but will do that tomorrow.

All that's left is to connect the power points and get the consumer unit connected up :DThen a big garden / drive tidy up!

Happy with it?

Plastic or metal?

Would you recommend the supplier?

Very happy with it. Got it direct from Rollerdor on ebay and they make to fit. The slats are double skinned aluminium and have a thick foam-filled insert.

2 year parts guarantee :DPainted up the old section ready for the power points to go on tomorrow. Then got to sort out the jointing on the drywall. Not looking forward to that messy job. :dry: IMG_20190203_112835658.jpg IMG_20190203_130008638_HDR.jpg IMG_20190203_144518246_HDR.jpg IMG_20190203_144550668.jpg IMG_20190203_144608733.jpg

Think you need to have a open day for viewing when finished. :)

1983 Mars Red 1.8 Golf GTI
1987 Alpine White 1.8 Clipper Cabriolet

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.

Starting to get the units on the wall, got a couple more to put up. Going to get the final bits in the garage at the weekend and then give it a good sort. Got a load to clear up and a summer house to empty and sell.

All units up and started to organise bits and pieces. Got the tilt jig out the way and supported against the wall. Tomorrow going to get the remaining garage bits in and paint the other end.

Bit of a shame I got red brick dust on my newly painted walls :lol: IMG_20190208_171202467.jpg IMG_20190208_173453225.jpg IMG_20190208_173501287.jpg IMG_20190208_174232171.jpg IMG_20190208_174240481.jpg

I wasn't going to mention the red marks but seeing as you have :o    :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Looking good mate. You must be well pleased with it no  it's 'finished'.

Inspiration to do mine. Just got to get a flaming builder, who'd have thought it would so hard to find someone!

I go on holiday for a fortnight, and you've decorated and moved in!
I didn't get to paint my walls when I moved into my new garage Dec 2017 a SWMBO wanted the shipping container removed from the front of the house. The blockwork is light grey and my Led lights are bright, so not much of an issue and I have over 30ft of racking down one wall.
 I had my ceiling made of plyboard as I didn't want to bash plasterboard, I wish I hadn't as I had to paint a cars length from the entrance it due to it leaving a faint brown residue on the Golf which was a sod to get off. (It didn't seem to bother the Escort so could have been a localised problem.) Fortunately I always cover the Cabriolet roof with a sheet.
 I wouldn't be without my electric roller door, it's draught proof, doesn't rattle, and I can drive up as the door opens and straight in. Sheer luxury!

Big tidy up this weekend. Got the garden cleared ready to attack the summer house, remove a large section of the flower bed and then remove all the patio and pretty much re landscape :oAt least it doesn't look like a building site! well except for the bricks on the wall :lol: IMG_20190209_172731816.jpg

Today painted the far end of the garage

IMG_20190210_123227879_HDR.jpg
