2015 Challenge Update #3

After the drywall work was done, things began to move quickly with our projects. The weekend after Memorial Day, Husband and I painted the garage. Yes, we took the easy way out and painted the ceiling and wall the same colour...


Husband installed motion sensor activated ceiling lights, as well as several new outlets in the garage and he re-organised the electrical panel. When the city inspector came to evaluate, he thought things looked good and admitted that he forgot his tester. "Here, use mine" Husband offered. The inspector commented that good contractors seem to want to show off their work. Personally, I think Husband was that kid in class who reminded the teacher if she forgot to assign homework.


Next, we had a professional Epoxy treatment to the floor. 

Before...

And After!


The next "fun" project was installing the storage unit, but at last we could move the contents of our garage out of our house.




Finally, the garage doors were installed! 



There are still a few projects left to do, such as painting the doors in then next 30 days per HOA regulations, but fortunately, we'll have my dad here to help. Most importantly, we have a functional garage in time for baby's arrival!

  6. Looks great and a big improvement! Home renovations are no fun while you're doing them but are usually worth it in the end.
