Photos of the newly dry walled garage!

So it took longer than I said, but here are some photos. These were taken this past week, so I obviously have a LOT of organizing to do. There's a metal crate that's got junk in it in the middle of most of these photos; it's going to the dump Saturday. I'll be getting a new shed in the back yard shortly, so that will alleviate the garage of ALL the yard stuff and all the parts from the Biscayne once I start dismantling it, leaving me room to move as I go. I'm also looking to get more cabinets for storage.

I'd rather hang sheetrock than move all that stuff! Sheesh! I thought mine was bad! I'm a packrat by nature, but every once in a while I get flustered because I can no longer get from point "a" to point "b" and purge to make room for a new load of stuff.

Yeah, I have absolutely NO room to comment myself on the amount of stuff you have. I have two cars in my garage and just as much other stuff, too. I just sold a set of slicks and wheels so maybe I can condense the mess a bit. The sheetrock looks like it came out pretty good from the pictures. That'll go a long way to keeping the garage warm and the house fume-free. Good work!

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.

Are you talking about the snowblower, or the engine stand? Man, that is one filthy smallblock. Nice engine stand, though.

Lets take these in order:

matt's66 - I did say I had a LOT of organizing to do. I'll get there. I might even post some pix then.

earthquake68 - I'm real happy with the sheetrock. It aint perfect, but it's a garage. And it's a detached garage, so fumes were never an issue. If it were attached, this would have been done long ago.

dgwar - yep, that's a snow blower. We bought it eight years ago before I had my first of THREE hernia surgeries. We bought it knowing that I wouldn't be able to shovel the drive that winter and I'm damn glad we did buy it. We have a long driveway and it's great.

Splitter - that's the 283 that came out of the free '66 Impala that I got last Thanksgiving. Since my brother doesn't seem to want the engine after I offered it to him, I'm keeping it. I'll eventually rebuild it and set it in the corner as a back-up for the Biscayne or a bargaining chip for a later deal - who knows?

The engine stand was a bartered item for a recent pinstriping job. I re-striped a '67 GTO for a close friend who was moving to Florida and he traded me that monster stand. I tried to get him to give up one of his many M22s. I think he's hoarding them. He's got like four or five or them. He says they're his retirement plan and I believe him...

This past Saturday, I had a contractor come by and measure for two new garages doors. I’m getting, (at the wife’s request!!!) two new insulated garage doors. When he got done, we discussed styles and such. I decided on the standard 1 3/8” white door. I requested the order be made with a row of insulated windows too. So I paid my deposit and he said he’d call me later this week with an install date.

He called today to let me know there was a problem with the order. The 1 3/8” doors were on a 3-4 week lead time. Since he knew I was itching to get the doors in, he swung a deal with his supplier who just happen to have two 2” white doors with the glass that got miss-ordered! So he’s installing those two 2” doors at no additional cost – MERRY X-MAS to me!!! It’s like a $300 difference. As for the upgrade in the insulation of the two doors, the thinner doors are an R6.5 and the 2” doors are an R9.5; so it’s a double win for me!

Photos to follow after next Monday!

Yesterday, two guys showed up and inside of 2 1/2 hours, they had the old doors out and the new doors in. Unfortunately, the supplier goofed and sent the wrong window panel - I should have four panes, not the two long ones. They'll be back in a week or so to swap them out. Either way, I've already noticed a difference; there are no gaps big enough to run my hand through ;-) The new windows will get some mirror tint applied from the inside for some amount of security. Until then, I have cardboard over them.

Thanks for reading along.

It's like "what a car a set of wheels make", "what a GARAGE a set of DOORS make" !!

Looks Great!
