I should of taken some photos before hand but here is the workshop minus the ceiling and about 2/3 of the crap removed.
I have to erect 2 new sheds to be able to continue with this build so off I go to carry on erecting in the rain......

What are you planning to do with the garage door? Leave it, block it up or something else? The room will be cold as Hades in Winter if it's just a metal door. My suggestion fwiw is go full Maxwell Smart with multiple doors: leave the garage door in place, and build a temporary partition half a metre inside either solid or glazed or a bit of both using say a second hand sliding door suite off tardme. You can open the garage door to let in light (and ventilation) and still be airtight and warm over winter.

See the bottom photo, left hand side you'll see a nice big double glazed 3 window unit, 2.5m long x 1m high. Remove the garage door, make a frame insert fram do some block work a bit of rendering and it's done voila and being 800mm off the ground it's a nice height to have a 3m desk looking out at the green shed......... still it's daylight which is something I can't see in my current workshop.

Sounds good. Day light is practical (especially on those days when the power is out!) but connection with the outside world is good for the soul as well.

My garage is destined for the same one day- remove roller door, slot in new sliding door, line & garage carpet. But that has to wait till we've got the cash to do the rest of the relining & extension work, downstairs bathroom etc.

Yeah but it doesn't come without some pain, blood, sweat and tears. Part of the process is putting up two sheds, one shed was to take all the stuff out of the existing shed near the garage, the other shed is for the overflow from what is in the garage that won't go in to the existing shed.
I put one shed up during the week and move all the stuff up to the new location. I was putting the overflow shed up and it has a high wall running along side it. So I thought meh I'll just scamper along the high wall and bolt the roof on from there as its along side. I was just finishing off when I slipped and half fell down between the shed and the concrete wall. It hurt so much I couldn't look at it as it felt like there would be a large flap of meat hanging off because I landed on the corner of the brick and scraped my way down it. Had to get the wife who's a nurse to give me the all clear to look lol
It's weird it always hurts more when you look at these things, all I could see was bloody running down my leg and that was enough for me.
She said it was all ok so I got back up on the wall and put the last screw in to the roof.
It's pretty sore still and it's turning a nice shade of black/purple etc, she's put a big dressing on it and strapped it up, taking a shower hurt like buggery.

Yup it certainly did, I was swearing like a trooper.
Hurts now as it's starting to scab up and it keeps catching on things.

Yeeouch! I can feel your pain. Fortunately, scrapes like that heal quite quickly though it will sting a bit initially and then make your skin feel tight in that area for a little while as it begins to heal. I guess you'll be modelling while standing up for a week while the healing takes its course.

With legs like those you must be bringing sexy back! :lol:
All jokes aside, I have done pretty much the same thing in the same place and it stings like a mofo! It's enough to expose the nerve endings. Just wait till it scabs over and starts healing, then it is gonna be itchy as hell! I can sympathise G1.

Yeah it hurts like a female dog, there's a few deeper gashes which make it painful. But it's not stopped me, I'm just plugging away at the renovations.
Can't sit properly at my modelling bench though :(

searing PAIN Batman. Just for a fleeting moment G1, I thought you'd taken up road cycling with a rash like that, but the hairy legs are a dead giveaway that no lycra or bike was involved!

Wishing you a speedy non-itchy recovery.

Update, walls are off and I'm about halfway through the electrics, insulating as I go as well.
Pulled out the old Garage door on Friday just gone and then spent the next couple of days putting the window in and building the wall.

And block work, Gib Boarding, stopping, plastering etc. Only thing I've had to pay a tradie to do was the moving of the Gas pipe that ran on the surface of the ceiling, I even drilled all the holes for the pipe, I do normal plumbing (just fitted a new bathroom suite upstairs) but I don't like doing gas so I'm happy to pay for that.
I'm a certified Electro Mechanical engineer (Electrical, plumbing, hydraulics) but not in NZ, it's annoying as my qualifications are recognised world wide and let me work in most countries, except NZ.
I'll just do the work and get it signed off by friends etc.

Wow looks great. I try to do most that stuff myself too. I run all my wiring etc and added four more power points when we did the last room up and just had to get a sparky to contact the power points saved a fair bit doing it that way. Don’t suppose that doors up for grabs?

It most certainly is, I've got it on Trademe at present, it's got 3 watchers so far, it's in bloody good condition to. Has all the runners, motor, brackets and clamps etc.
I've seen ones in Demolition Traders in Hamilton for up to $800 and they weren't as good as this one. I was hoping for about $400 but that's probably a bit adventurous.
