    Ron, when you get started, you don’t fool around, do you?

    BTW, Does anyone have recommendations on how to “winterize” my garage, so that I can use it during the winter here in Toronto area? I’ve seen people put up insulation (?) against there garage door. I have a auto garage door opener and it’s only a single car garage, around 14’X20′. This is my first winter coming up and would love to continue using it as my shop.

    You should start a thread on it.

    Had a good day for working today. Had a few light showers move through, but they didn’t amount to much. Got all the holes bored and posts set. Well other than the entry door posts.

    Looks good Ron. I guess that is step one done. That new level will be high teck to shoot the bench marks.

    Yea the GRL400H is coming in very handy to have on this one.

    Ron, when you get started, you don’t fool around, do you?

    Things will slow down a little after today. As I still have to work to pay the bills.

    It will be all metal. Sides and top.
    It will be something kinda like this one when finished.

    This has to be really fun for you @RonW !! I find work @ home when it is something you want to do so enjoyable!

    Did you set the posts in concrete or crushed stone? Do you put the round “footer” blocks at the bottom of the holes first?

    Concrete. I poured 4″ of dry ready mix in the bottom of the hole for a footer.

    Got most of the girts up today. Still not sure I like the location of the entry door. Will have to think on it over night.

    what about secret entrances and such? any crazy special ideas that will be implemented in your build?

    My only advice is put it where it takes up the least wall space. Things like cabinets, wall storage, or even tools against the wall are all considerations.

    That is going to be a sweet workshop. I could only dream right now of having the much space and a dedicated shop. Will be nice to follow your thread along as the build goes!

    The posts in the center of each end are taller to support the trusses. And will get cut to the correct height. I should end up with 9’6″ inside once the floor is poured.

    You are right Bill. That is why I put it next to the overhead door in the corner. And think I will keep it there.

    Still waiting on the trusses to show up.

    Looking really good, Ron. I’ll second the idea of the entry next to the main door. Less wasted wall space.

    Not that I know of yet. Crazy ideas usually cost a bunch of money to do. And that is definitely not in the budget.

    That is a lot of rock for sure. Moving the excess to the driveway a wheel barrow at a time not fun.
