New Garage

Happy New Year 2017!

I have not written a blog post in some time.  In fact, my last blog post was about my summer ride to Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee.  My professional life and my personal life have been very busy!  No need to speak about my professional life, but in my personal life my time has been taken up by the construction of a new garage/shop.

I have been toying with the idea of building a garage for several years and this summer I finally made the decision to move forward with the construction of a 24"x 24" garage.  The pics below show the progress from start to finish.

Insulation and Vapor Barrier

Interior Finishing


The Bikes!


I finished the interior with tongue and groove spruce boards and I am very pleased with the look. There are three coats of polyurethane on the ceiling and walls.  I installed lots of electrical 120V (every 6 feet around the perimeter) and a couple of 220V receptacles.

For heat, I went with a Quadrafire Classic Bay Pellet Stove.  It provides all kind of heat and so far, I am very happy with the performance.

I find the winters long in our part of the World and the new garage/shop will provide me with a place to work.  Now, I have to find a project!
