    Boat home

    current status. Standing seam metal roof installed. Sheathed and wrapped. 24’ wide, 30’ deep, 12’ floor to ceiling. Stand up attic with door access through outdoor stairs on the back. Attic usable of 300 sf. Next step is doors and windows to dry in for ceiling, plumbing for half bath, electrical, propane heating work.

    glad I listened to my wife and got the standing seam roof. Installer said he wished he had used it on his house since he’s getting leaks at the fastener holes. Opined the roof would outlive my kids.

    Update. Can’t really see it in the previous pic, but there’s a pretty steep drop-off behind the new garage and there is a large walkout basement, patio, fire pit, septic, etc. about 20 feet down. So I need room on the side to pull my suv or a truck or a trailer from one level to another. We almost had a disaster because a rural water system main runs very, very close to that side. The rural good old boy network saved a major catastrophe for me and the county when a friend of the brother of a friend scratched his head at a chance encounter at the lumber supplier and said “isn’t there a water main there” and it turns out there was and the water system guy was another friend of the contractor so he came out and dug test holes to find out exactly where it was. I have the clearance I need but just barely. And disaster averted.

        Only depending on the economy, but everyone is affected by that, Mike. I’m good. My needs after this build are pretty minimal. Arrived in the world with nothing just like everyone else. Very little is necessary to be pretty comfortable. Learned that in a severe setback in 2001. Learned what’s important and it wasn’t all the stuff I had before then. Give me time over things every time.

          I understand how we can survive with minimal things after getting divorced a few years back. But in retirement the idea is to enjoy the remaining time since we can’t get that back.

ID:	490242 Interior as of now. Just some punch list items left. Could do most myself in a day if necessary.

                Interesting construction, why the metal ceiling and plywood walls?

                  White metal ceiling for better lighting. 5/8” plywood walls for ease of mounting shelves, hooks, etc., but also based on experience and with a metal roof did not want a faraday cage for gps, cell reception, etc. basically, a compromise. Builder wanted to do all metal. I think he was right about the ceiling and lighting. His crew agreed with me about the walls. I’ve had thick plywood walled garages before and liked the flexibility and ease of mounting stuff. Ceiling, especially at 12’ is likely not something I would regularly puncture, but if need to mount something, I know where the rafters are.

                  Sounds like you thought it out. Will you paint the plywood to help brighten the place?

                #9
                Based on the lighting tested tonight, I probably will not paint the walls:

                  Hey Nick what type of garage opener is that?

                    Mike, it’s Liftmaster brand. It turns the torsion rod directly and the door follows as opposed to the center lift type that pulls the door up through a chain mechanism. We have just a few overhead door companies in this area and they all seem to have switched to this arrangement. It takes up a lot less space and at least for now it’s much smoother and quieter.

                    Yes it's a very clean look, I like it!

                  Before the interior went on I had 12” of insulation put above the ceiling and 6” between the walls. The garage door has some gaps because the weather seal will go on after the finish siding is done. So, we’ve had mid 40’s F temps in the daytime the last couple of days and well below freezing at night. This morning, early, with the outside temp just creeping up to 30, the garage interior temp, measured right next to the garage door, was 46. Obviously, the cold soaks we get in January and February can’t be dealt with passively, but I’m optimistic about my 65000 btu forced air propane heater (to be added) doing the job pretty easily with not too much fuel consumption.
