Yeah, that shop is looking amazing!

I've been planning to rebuild mine but then all this pandemic stuff happened so it put that on hold, but yours is inspiring for sure.
Actually his shop makes me want to finish builing the last stage of Tiki Bar. Tracy and I planned to do a covered cooking area but honesty I was stumped how to do it since it is right beside the garage.

The shop has 2 and a half walls finished. East side and south walks siding is done. They may have the rest done tomorrow if the weather cooperates. If not, it will be done this weekend. Then, its gutters, trim, then probably concrete and finally doors. 20200610_164531.jpg

The interior of the house is coming along. The worst of the transit damage is repaired. The marriage lines are sealed in the ceiling 20200610_164638.jpg .

You could secure 2x4s to the exterior of the garage wall, with a 2x6 top cap. Then use that to support the roof to the tiki bar. Then build up and out from there.

Well my statement was a little misleading. The actual Tiki Bar is on the other side of the yard and the cooking area butts up to the side of the garage. I am thinking about building a lean to structue and have the back side slope above the garage roof so the run off will go into the garage gutters. I am thing 6ft deep structure thats about 30ft long the slope would go from 10ft to 8ft. I may use 4 by 4 pressure treated lumber and other pressure treated lumber metal roof.

The interior mud work is almost complete. The floor guy starts tomorrow with the linoleum on the marriage lines. After the walls are complete, the floor guy will be back to install the carpet. Power and water should go in next week.

Picked up the lighting for the shop. 8' Dual LED strip x 24 8200 lumen each for the inside. 4x 4750 lumen Dusk to Dawn LED area lamps and a double LED 1200 lumen security light over the man door. I also picked up 2"conduit for a pathway between the house and shop. we picked up 4 sets of LED under cabinet lights, and a Honeywell wireless doorbell system, and 7 52" ceiling fans with LED lighting. A while back, I picked up two touchpad deadbolts. One for the house, and one for the shop man door. I'm waiting on the GC to find out if my electrical work, and permit will interfere with their final next month.

Interior is painted. Floors should be finished next week, along with power and water. Wife said we needed a new washer and dryer. So, I also got this Samsung 82" Q60. Once it's installed, I'll add pictures to the hardware forum.

Jim gets it: "She gets something, *I* get something." :lol:
I showed this to Angela, she hit me, LOL!

Picked up the breaker panel for the shop yesterday. I hope I'm home when the meter base is installed. I can ask some advice installing the breaker panel.

Also,got a second button for the wireless doorbell.

Power meter base and gutters installed. wire has been run from the meter base to the house. They were even kind enough to install my breaker panel in the shop for me. Inspection for the meter base, and power conduit is scheduled for Monday. As long as it passes, I can start wiring up power and lighting in my new shop.

Shifting gears, I'm waiting on concrete, pushed back to this Friday, the 24th, I'll rent a scissor lift to put up the rest of the lights. The gravel went into the shop. The porches are done. The flooring guy is here today working on the vinyl flooring and carpet. Still waiting on water, and septic. the finish work should start tomorrow.

I also picked up a new lawn tractor after Angela granaded the mower deck on the used Husqvarna she bought last year. Husqvarna TS354 with the Kawasaki 25 HP motor, and 54" mowing deck. I also bought a 49" 4K samsung 8000 series display for the bedroom. I'm ordering wire and in wall/ceiling speakers for the family room, and cameras, and DirecTV/Cable
