    This is looking great. I would be happy just to have the basement to work in. Thanks for documenting your build for us onlookers.

    Ya' gotta think BIG here. I'm thinking this would be a GREAT first project...! A nice Classical 24" Entablature with 12" Cornice, 8" Frieze, and 4"Architrave. Maybe Dentils sized by T.Rex?! Then columns and capitals at the windows/doors.... oh, ...wait, uuhhhmmm -- this is a shop.

    Never mind.
    Molann an obair an saor.

    Jon - thanks for posting your progress. Each update might not generate a ton of responses but overall the information is valuable to future shop-builders. I'm in the planning/quoting phase of my own shop build and desperately need information like this - your usual home builder/contractor doesn't have a lot of information about how to properly build a shop.

    City Glass windows came in finally. Went the double pane route. Needed two friends to help me trim these in place but Im glad I decided to go so big as they let a lot of light in, and look good compared to the original garage doors.

    I subd out the stucco (again to match the house). They did a nice job with the lath and brown coat.

    Painted the wood floor with two coats of primer followed by two of Sherwin Williams Tred Plex. So far Im happy w results.

    Pic of the “bomb cyclone” that came through a few weeks ago.

    Thought this was a neat look at how much of the country was affected, even more so after it later moved east.

    Who names these things anyway?

    I put up a ledger board on the south wall before the stucco lath was installed. I hope in the future to add a small shed roof here to store dories and outdoor equipment. After the final inspection

    Took the opportunity to use the stucco guys scaffolding and painted the soffits and fascia, and the doors which dont quite match the garage doors. Well call it a primer coat.

    It's not a ledger board Jon, it's a decorative element.

    Good call with pre-panning around that ledger board! Make sure there's something angled on top so water doesn't sit on top of it, however, if there is any exposure.

    This thing is REALLY coming together, Jon!

    Thx Jim. I put up some flashing too. Hopefully that’s enough until rafters and roof go up there.

    Due to the sudden onslaught of dust collection threads (which are making my head spin and almost convincing me to toss my not-yet installed DC and just open some windows ), I thought I would post something different, so here’s a shop update!

    Friends of friends poured the front steps and shop apron. Replaced part of old BB court.

    67E69879-C3F8-41BC-9761-D77DFA99B1E4.jpg721DB302-8B43-422C-8CCC-7D9296CFA575.jpgE3141B46-33FE-480C-86AB-0CBEDAB07686.jpg

    Gutters painted and installed. I’m glad I got those up b/c it was constant mess outside door before concrete which changed to a frozen skating ice rink w our last cold snap.

    Finally, some stone work on back steps and along basement steps wall. This was done to keep wife happy (who doesn’t understand the concept of “it’s the back yard!”). Luckily we had a pile of leftover flagstone in back yard so I just used that.

    No vapor barrier? Not required in your locale?
