Just a quick update of progress, the wall trim has been put up, the floors has been steam cleaned (with a one inch tip) sealed with a two part expoy sealer/primer and then coated with a rubberized coating, three close to four weeks of going at it but it's finally finished.

NO more dust clouds just by walking on the floor.











Cleaned and rinsed





Sealing in progress



Finished

Thanks JohnRR for taking the time to post all the good pictures. I thoroughly enjoy them, and I know I can speak for many, many others. Great project!

Thank you, I just noticed in the last two pictures the silver looking stripes they are actually flat black reflective tape that shows as silver looking at night when light hits it. This was my service vehicle, all the wreckers had this paint scheme. There were actually two Explorer sports like this but I kept this one when I retired. You have to pull the engine to change the rear timing chain.

It took me about four years to get around to doing it the MH and garage always got in the way.

Thank you I will admit it feels better being able to use it than just look at it.

John,

I just read the entire thread and fantastic job! Shop/Garage and engine work! I thoroughly enjoyed the read, info, pics and progress as our home is presently for sale for the specific purpose of buying a home with land available to build something very close to yours.

The problem I have been running into is the fact that not much property is left around here that is not covered by some type of HOA, whom (so far) have no idea what a MH (like my diesel pusher) actually is. I had submitted plot maps with site drawings and dimensions and THEY SAY I SHOULD ORIENT IN THE DIRECTION OF THE EXISTING SIDE ACCESSED GARAGE THATS ATTACHED TO THE HOUSE. Sorry, yes, just a little frustrated.

To "turn" my planned shop/garage would take out the entire rear yard. Absolutely ridiculous. I am proposing entry just like yours and the HOA is bothered due to my plan encroaching on side setback lines. The entire shop would be far enough behind the house that it could never be seen from the street unless you were 20 feet tall.

So much for my venting, again, my apologies!

Love your shop/garage and the way you designed it. Great Job!

I wanted the garage at a right angle to the back of the house needless to say it's off by a few inches which I've learned to live with. All in all my city planning commission was pretty reasonable to work with but on the same token all my ducks were pretty much in a row before I went to them.
