    Going to quickly recap and bring this build up to speed with lots of pics. I'll let the pics speak for themselves :thumbsup:


    Setup:


    It’s an attached and staggered 3 ½ car garage. I had the double door side of the garage built extra wide and the single door side was built a bit wider with a 9’ wide door. There are no rooms above the garage as it’s a ranch style bungalow. The shared walls with the house are 2x6 studs and are fully insulated and vapoured accordingly. The exterior walls of the garage are 2x4 studs and the ceilings are 10 ½ feet high. The garage was fully dry walled by the builder but there's no insulation on the exterior walls or in the ceiling. The garage doors themselves are insulated Wayne Dalton 8300’s. This was my initial plan which I've been working on and knocking out slowly.


    Plan:


    1) Fully insulate walls and ceiling
    2) Add a ceiling mount natural gas heater
    3) Extend garage rails on single garage door for high lift conversion
    4) Add jackshaft lift to single garage door
    5) Add dedicated hydro outlets and more lighting/outlets elsewhere
    6) Install a 4 Post hoist
    7) Install a Pro Jack on hoist
    8) Upgrade compressor
    9) Install ceiling mount air hose reel
    10) Add a central vacuum outlet in centre of garage
    11) Install cabinets/workbench
    12) Install diamond plating in work areas
    13) Repaint and add trim to entire garage
    14) Add alarm to garage man door
    15) Haven’t decided on floor

    Awesome project. Definitely in for updates on this one.

    I can't believe that it wasn't insulated at all...

    12 years of running camera wires in people houses and in businesses and I only ever seen maybe 5 that actually insulated above the garage or in the garage walls.

    They are starting to insulate walls more on garages now but never do above.

    Thanks, I couldn't believe it either! From what I understand, the builder is not required to vapour barrier or insulate as its all considered exterior walls. If you look at the pic of the hoist, you will see the front wall is only half torn down because that drywall portion is an interior shared wall so its VB and insulated.



    If its exterior they're not touching it in my neck of the woods, but if there is a room above than they are.



    Closed cell foam, thanks man!



    I really see the benefits of the spray foam, so they're coming back in about a week to spray the walls and top dress the ceiling with loose fill. When its done, my garage will be better insulated then my house :D

    Had a few misc PM's about the garage heater, the venting for the heater and a request for pics of the venting.


    The garage heater is a 50,000 BTU unit and it uses outside air for combustion. The venting is the updated horizontal B.


    Some pics:

    I meant to type inside air for combustion :banghead:


    The lift certainly comes in handy for a variety of tasks, thanks.

    I got the walls spray foamed and now I'm looking forward to pinning the drywall so I can finally close everything up and keep moving forward. I didn't realize how much work the walls were going to be with the extensive prep of taping/masking and covering stuff. After the walls were sprayed, they shaved down all the studs/corners/around electric outlets and any other high spots for the walls to be flush. The shaving made a huge mess, but it was certainly worth it!!




    Prep:

    Nice work!!
    gotta have a good place to work! you're going to love having a lift!

    if you haven't got them yet, I would suggest (2) jacking rails.

    O man I am so jealous! I need that down here! Except with air conditioning, what's this heater business???

    If you don't mind me asking, ball park estimate on that spray insulation?

    That's really surprising. Every home I've had (3 in the last 8 years) has had them insulated, walls and ceiling. Guess maybe I just got lucky?



    Spray insulation looks really nice! I imagine it would be a huge pita if you ever decided to run an outlet somewhere in the future, though...
