It's been some time since there were some new entries on here. So here is an update! For about four years Lloyd Costley (Edgemont Village)and myself have been looking for a suitable commercial building to purchase to combine our workshops, have some rental space and invest in a property that could give us a decent appreciation over time.
We viewed over 30 properties over the past four years and submitted 6-8 offers that just went no where.
In Nov 2015 we were shown a 3500 sq ft building about to be listed and got an offer in right away. Our offer subject to minimal conditions was accepted immediately with a Mar 1 2016 closing.
Attached are some early photos, overgrown property 50x50 rear yard. The main area is a 2600 SQ ft open shop with 14 ft ceilings in 1500 sq ft, 300 sq ft low ceiling , a Devillbis Paint Booth and plenty of storage in the old office areas, 900 sq ft.

This was a view from the back , completely overgrown

Previous tenant was a sign manufacture, lots of tables, temp walls built everywhere.

We knew we had work ahead of us as this 60 year old building needed a lot of upgrades to get to code. The building was sound with a new roof, East and West walls were concrete block and the posts and beams were solid redwood.

In some order we needed the back lot cleared,This was done by the Vendors son before we took possession.

The back wall would need to be replaced and a new larger 10 foot door opening built.

With the lot cleared we had a combination of old asphalt, concrete and soon to return Japanese Knotweed.

Week of March 1.
With an electrician on hand to start the electrical rework Lloyd and I tackled the back wall. It had been constructed with 2x4 60 years ago and covered with clapboard on the outside and chip board on the inside, everything was rotted.

The wall for the low bay area was addressed first, this is where we learned of some of the challenges going forward and I leared what a precision carpenter, woodworker Lloyd is. With his penchant for "overbuilding" I stated that if he had been a consultant on the Titanic, it would still be afloat today.

2x8 studs, anchored to concrete base and side wall, pressure treated sill and wrapped in waterproof membrane, with lots of Butyl seal.

Our plan was to repurpose as much of the building materials as we could. there were about 10 sheets of good 3/4 inch plywood and 2x8 studs that had bben used for interior platforms that we would use for sheeting the new back wall.

<span style="font-weight: bold">I reserve the right to vigourously defend myself in connection with this thread...</span> Paul and I set out to create a car hobby shop to restore and warehouse our cars. When we bought the subject building we had to decide whether to demo the 60 year old timber beam, former valve shop (later used for movie prop creations then as a printing shop) that was neglected and unloved or reno it into a vintage shop with idiosyncrasies and character. As you will see we decided on the latter. The reno process that began in March 2016 has been interesting, challenging, expensive, frustrating, sometimes painful (I could keep going) and highly rewarding. You couldn't ask for a better partner than Paul.

<span style="font-weight: bold">Here are a few more early photos:</span>

Liking it...........a lot. Its like you two picked up the dusty, slightly rusty, dingy vintage car that everyone else overlooked and now you are giving it the TLC (and blood, sweat, and tears) necessary to bring her back to her old glory. You guys see the potential!! Thanks for taking us along on your adventure!! <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif

Yes we did, mostly buried large format fasteners and hardware from the original valve shop. Nothing of value just archaeologically significant to the building's history. Some of it we kept and will find a way to display in the finished product.

Thanks for jumping in Lloyd, needless to say neither one of us has spent any time on our cars this summer due to the &quot;project&quot; Sams description of the old building basically described the cars I restore as well.
What evolved over the past 5 months on our various skills was interesting as their was the occasional &quot;good Grief&quot;, &quot;WTF&quot; and &quot;really, are we building for a cat 5 hurricane?&quot;. The results will show.

More photos of the tear out and completion of the back wall.

Framing started for the new rear door. We centered the door in the new back wall to allow for better Hoist and tool box location in the shop as well as even access to the back lot.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/shop111_zpslfhw0z0n.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/shop111_zpslfhw0z0n.jpg.html)

With the new wall assembled on the ground it was time for &quot;tilt up&quot;. The uneven proportions of the 60 year old upper beam caused some challenges in getting the wall securely on place. Having spent much of the Saturday evening using sledge hammers top and bottom to no avail, it was time to get out the heavy metal.
Using a 7000 LB Yukon XL as an anchor point, a 30 foot cargo strap and a ratchet come a long, the wall was eased into place and Lloyd emptied an air nailer magazine (500 nails) to secure the wall forever.

a shot from the back of the lot. realizing we had a drainage problem, we opted to install all pressure treated plywood along the bottom row of the back wall. More on drainage later.

The height (12') and width (~30') of the new 2 x 8 high bay wall framing necessitated 2 sections. As the large timber header beam had a distict &quot;twist&quot; to it, trying to tilt up, fit and align the header plates was...well...difficult hence the GMC Yukon powered solution.

Demo Begins on the High Bay wall:

First Sticks of New Framing for the High Bay. Note the exposed vertical timber beam - a thing of the past:

Heading into week 2 we made progress on the back wall and prepared for installation of new doors. Our barn roller doors had to be cut down.

Our cladding for the back wall arrived on Mar 26 and the plan was to have start installing it that weekend. With heavy rain tha last week of March we decided we needed to install a drain. This turned out to be a full weekend project renting concrete cutting saws (we broke the first one)jack hammers and digging through clay that had not been touched in 60 years.

In keeping with a vintage look we also purchased some barn lights, I got this inspiration from Sam Griffiths when he installed a real vintage light in his shop.We went with Edison Style Led bulbs, not a lot of light but great effect.

The first week of April. We had several rooms inside that mended attention, one is being designated the &quot;machine Room&quot;. Home for all buffers, grinders, drill press, hydraulic press. Lloyd called it the Alice in Wonderland room as it wasn't square, plum or flat. It needed new drywall and an Old filled in door that led to the neighbours front lot.

Ceiling up. Lloyd solicited our neighbour Greg, who runs a woodworking business across the street. Greg has been a great help on many occasions,including Drywall. He has also come to our assistance many times with his forklift. For compensation he would only take contributions of a decent Red Wine. Greg refers to Lloyd and I as &quot;office workers&quot;.

Back outside, with good weather forecast we opted to have the back lot paved. Remember all that overgrowth, it turned out to be Japanese Knotweed a very invasive and re occurring weed. Our New lot only looked like this for two weeks as the Knotweed grew back through the ashphalt. We will be getting some new paving done next spring.

Before the paving started we needed to remove the old Chimney. I wanted to use the big ass tow strap and truck. The chimney seemed wobley enough so we thought it would come down with a push!

Not shown or there yet are Lloyds 69 Z28 undergoing restoration or my other 1971 W30 convert also undergoing restoration.

If we parked cars only for storage we could get 16 cars in there &quot;cheek by Jowl&quot;. Our Max will be 8 on the floor. I am planning to ad a movable stacker for two of may cars. Lloyd and I will both have twin post hoists for working area.

Some of this work was completed in late March.

We had 8 glass panels above the Low bay area and the only windows into the shop area.
For security we added bars which also gave the windows a vintage look of mutton bars.

On the outside back wall we opted for Corrugated metal siding. We thought we could compete this in a weekend , it took almost 2 months before the last panel was up.

Through May and June we concentrated on some of the smaller stuff like getting the back wall insulated. We had to leave it in this state for a while as we waited for the electricians to install light boxes and power outlets.

The building initially had three washrooms, we wanted to consolidate down to one and create a &quot;wet room&quot; for parts washer, stainless sinks, storage cabinets and floor drain. We needed to open a 24&quot; opening to 40&quot;.
A jack post was installed before demo as this was a load bearing wall.

with our vertical cut made it took about 5 swings and a mulligan to bring down the brick.

From Mid June to Mid July allowing for attending to our day Jobs, vacation time, family commitments we managed to piece the last parts of the back wall interior. Option one was to clad in the same corrected metal as the outside, second option was to go for a barn look with vertical red cedar, rough side out and stained dark to match the vertical posts. The ceilings and upper beams had been sun bleached over the years and so there would be a contrast.

We opted for the cedar on the advice of helper Mike J.

All boards were routed to provide overlap as there would be twisting and shrinkage as they dried out, next step was pre assemble to make sue we had the right fit.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/wall4_zpsurawtjhn.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/wall4_zpsurawtjhn.jpg.html)
After pre assemble the planks were stained, convenient use of the paint booth.

Assembly started on the low bay wall

The high bay wall required planks 12 feet long, again routed for an overlap and 6 cutouts had to ne made for electrical boxes.


Mr C climbing the corporate ladder for plank fitment. Notice the use of all the latest safety gear.

With 5 planks left to go it seemed a good idea to sign off on the wall build. It was known as the 8 ply wall, studs,3/4 outside sheeting, Tyvek, cladding, insulation, vapor barrier, 3/8 sheeting and cedar plank. WE signed off with moniker we had earned for the construction.

We carried over the use of barn lights on this wall, and had a separate switched box for neon signs for four locations in the shop.

One of the building features was a swing crane installed at the front door. I really wanted to keep this both for historical and future use purposes. On closer inspection it interfered with our gas line and it impeded the installation of a new overhead door. It had to go!! Our neighbour Greg assisted with his forklift and we had to cut off the bolts that ran through the block (nasty job). Bye Bye Crane.

Lloyd and I were facing busy work schedules for September and had not done a lot in August due to vacations and other commitments. We decided we were going to demo and rebuild the exterior wall on Sunday Aug 28 with and early start and a commitment to get it closed on the same day:

7:00 AM new temporary support wall built into place.

Pass through was created for building materials extra TP and reading materials. Coincidentally it looked like a mini church window and given the fact we worked on Sunday this was as close as we got to being reverent.

Our old wall was made up of 2x4, then a horizontal 3/4 inch t and G siding, a 3/4 shiplap vertical siding, followed by a Styrofoam :insulation&quot; and them Vinyl siding. In order to keep the same thickness for the new Vertical Metal siding we would put on we needed to double sheet 3/4 inch plywood to keep the outer surface even.

The bottom sheet is pressure treated 3/4 inch plywood and the top and inner layer is 3/4 inch sheeting grade.

On Friday Sept 2 Lloyd and I went for more supplies, we spotted another tradesman's van in the lot and felt compelled to share:

Not sure what business he was in, the color chart may indicate he is a painter. Noteworthy accessories are the coat hangers, mops and the climbing rope around the mirror. the dash had about 7 years worth of receipts, coffee cups and who knows what else. The appearance of the van would indicate someone who doesn't give a sh%t. However the van appeared to have been recently painted (with a roller) and the wheels had new paint. Couldn't resist the photo.

We did get some work done on Friday, completed the TYvek after we did some rot repairs to the lower wall and commenced with the metal cladding on the front East wall:

Making use of the good weather, we are focused on getting as much outside completed this fall and finish up the inside stuff when we lose the daylight and good weather.

Wow, and it's a Quadrasteer equipped 3/4 ton example! Have you run into any issues with the unique parts for that rear steer system (yet)?

Re 2003 Yukon XL
Truck has been very reliable. Nothing related to Quadrasreer has given any problem.
Had an inner carrier bearing fail at 80,000 miles, now has 120,000. Bearing failure caused by dealer putting wrong fluid in at 60,000 mile service, could not prove their neglegence. Had all bearings replaced at a cost of $2600.00. Special tools and some specific seals required, vehicle at dealer for three weeks awaiting parts during GM bankruptcy period in 2010.

While Paul was travelling I though I would tackle a small project still on the &quot;we'll get around to that&quot; list. The fire door between the hall to the front office area and the warehouse needed rehanging and a cedar surround added.

The fire door and steel frame were hastily hung by someone lacking carpentry skills and seemingly very little patience. Although the steel door and welded frame were in good condition they were barely hanging on with only a few fasteners and were way out of plumb and level.
http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums/z396/edgemontvillage/Grant/Door%20Surround%20Before_zpsowrkzlf6.jpg

I started by re-framing the top of the door and adding some blocking to the vertical rough-in studs so the frame could be reoriented plumb and level. I also added some plywood spacers around the outer door frame to allow the surround cedar planking to be slid under the frame edge for a more tailored look.
http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums/z396/edgemontvillage/Grant/Door%20surround%20Fitting_zps3lqnfis4.jpg
http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums/z396/edgemontvillage/Grant/Door%20Surround%20Reframe_zpszp0nxqil.jpg

As the few remaining screws were undersized I though I would use larger torx head fasteners for added strength and to give the frame an industrial look much like the welded support frame on the adjacent Wet Room entrance. And yes, the door frame is now level and plumb...
http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums/z396/edgemontvillage/Grant/Door%20Surround%20Fasteners_zpsdpenkhlp.jpg
http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums/z396/edgemontvillage/Grant/Door%20Surround%20Level_zpsfvvou1zd.jpg

Vertical cedar planks were then cut to size, routed for overlap joints and the edges eased for a better ascetic. A filler strip was added under the right side plank to account for the difference between the block wall recess and the door frame. I made a header molding by ripping a strip of cedar plank on the table saw and routing the edge with a roundover bit. All the pieces were then dry fitted, disassembled then stained and finish installed with nails and glued in place.
http://i1187.photobucket.com/albums/z396/edgemontvillage/Grant/Door%20Surround%20Reassembly_zpslb4kpdx7.jpg

All that's left to do is paint the door frame and door - nice to get that one off the list

Its been a few months since the last post, not that we have not been doing anything, its just that business trips, family, work in general and MCACN got in the way of us finishing any particular phase, plus there were setbacks.
Over the next week I will post updates on what we achieved in the past 3 months.
First here is where we left off with the outside:
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/clad2_zpswthan274.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/clad2_zpswthan274.jpg.html)

After getting this done we discovered the entire remaining sill was rotted. Don't know how two car guys who have had to deal with rust over the years would thing a building was any different.
A sample of what we found:
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/wall104_zpsru3nl2my.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/wall104_zpsru3nl2my.jpg.html)
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/wall105_zpsfmzgopnq.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/wall105_zpsfmzgopnq.jpg.html)
We peeled back the Tyvek and opted to do a bottom up repair replacing the sill and the botten 12 inches of stud along with scabbing in brace pieces.
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/wall101_zpssz3ipteg.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/wall101_zpssz3ipteg.jpg.html)

After everything was complete we were able to complete the siding, All this word was done Oct 27-29.

During the time we could spend at the shop Sept to November we also tackled the bathroom/Wetroom. There used to be 3 washrooms here and this is what it looked like:

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/bath%2011_zpsxa0fpq2m.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/bath%2011_zpsxa0fpq2m.jpg.html)

After our friend and helper MEJ did the demolition all that remained was the prison toiler and a lot of old plumbing under the floor:
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/bath25_zpsaygzxhrp.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/bath25_zpsaygzxhrp.jpg.html)

We hired the plumber to dig up the floor and lay in the new waste plumbing along with a floor drain and a shower drain:

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/bath26_zpssjzy72jv.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/bath26_zpssjzy72jv.jpg.html)

Canuck
12-01-2016, 06:41 PM
Once the floor was back filled Lloyd and MEJ did a run to HD and bought 32 bags of Concrete mix to fill the void:
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/cement1_zpswfw0lljv.jpg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/cement1_zpswfw0lljv.jpg.html)

Transparently 32 bags was not enough so work was halted before the drain area could be filled in:

5 bags later we had a level floor:

Next up was the framing of the wall for the shower and toilet area, the remainder will be the wetroom for stainless sinks, parts washer and beer fridge (wet room has multiple meanings):

Along with this plumbing got ruffed in:

And Hot and cold water for the shop area, also located near the front door and driveway where we have drainage.

while we are in the process of finishing off the plumbing and the wetroom with nothing exciting to show, i thought I would share some photos of our shop equipment, some of which we had and more are recent acquisitions.

First or paint booth, we stripped off the old filters to the updraft area and vacuumed out the old debris, consisting of sawdust, sand and paint layers spanning 20+ years:

And reinstalled the filters, the place came with a large box of these that should last a few years:

Progress continues on the shop albeit at a modest pace, Paul is working on buttoning up and pressure testing the labyrinth of plumbing and air lines in the bathroom &amp; wet room before we can move on to insulation/vapor barrier then drywall during the holiday break. Electrical in almost complete in this area however light switch relocation, exhaust fan testing and provisioning for a smoke detector are still on the list. I have been chipping away at some of the framing tasks; still to do is a closet for the wet room/bathroom plumbing and elimination of a hallway door opening. With limited time available on the weekend I built an 11' bulkhead in the main front office to warehouse hallway to contain some unsightly conduit and exposed low voltage wiring prior to drywall.

Hall bulkhead framing.

Ahead of the holiday break Paul and I embarked on the arduous and unpleasant job of insulating and installing vapor barrier in the Wet Room and Bathroom in preparation for drywall. Snow and freezing temperatures are becoming increasingly rare where we live and in fact until December 2016 we hadn't seen a snowfall in over 1,000 days. When we do experience snow its a couple of inches and gone in a day or two. Well this year has been different, cold temperatures have persisted and several inches of snow has accumulated. <span style="font-style: italic">Soooo </span> returning from an HD run with fresh supplies, while backing down the warehouse driveway Paul mis-navigated just a smig, dropped a rear wheel over an 18&quot; drainage ledge and shunted the Yukon into our recently renovated, minty fresh corrugated steel clad wall... What immediately followed was a gathering of neighbours who came to our aid. One brought 2 bags of salt...OK...thanks...another towed the Yukon out and off the ledge with his 5 Ton cube van to safety. Worked like a charm. The final result was a damaged wall panel and end cap that will be replaced in the spring with the Yukon taking the brunt.

Newfie's like myself refer to that a Duct Tape, personally I only own one roll as I seldom have need for it. Lloyd on the other hand owns several rolls in many colors, that particular one was branded by Snap On as he prefers the good stuff. He was very adept at applying it and appeared to have lots of years of experience in its application, that is why I let him have at it.

Ever since Photobucket held us for ransom I have not posted shop renovations. Except for some front cladding we are 90% complete on the outside and 98% on the inside.
Lloyd and I have actually done some car restoration work in the past few months to take a break from "two soft office types attempt building overhaul"

I will go back to last January and give a overview what we accomplished

Good guy Danny, felt our pain, had us promise it would never happen again,and put down our new floor.

Waiting at the airport for a further delayed flight. Soooooo post some more.

Borrowing an idea from Sam, I built a heat dispenser before air entered the shop.

We had to move the air 40 feet to the front of the shop, and 20 feet +- to either side, total copper pipe for air was over 200 feet.

Regulators were placed at every imaginable location with spares for future consideration, dedicated ones were put in for parts washer agitator and potential air jacks for hoists.

It's a dual 20x20 with 18 inch left drain board. It available through a restaurant supply house available in 16 and 18 ga stainless. We went with 16.It's known as a clean up sink. Total width is 62 inches and we had 62.5 inches of wall to work with? Also went with the sprayer.
Canadian price about $850.00. That might work out to $300 US. It's off shore made so they may be banned in the US. Made in USA version will run $3000 to $8000. (Attempt at some trans border humor).

Sooooo,on the subject of the water heater, we ordered and installed a Siebel tankless water heater, that by all accounts would serve our needs. After four months of testing and rechecking everything we did and finally calling Seibel they told us their tankless heather would not work in Canada because our water was too cold.
I asked them if they were sold in Michigan and Colorado and he said yes. Decision made, return unit to Home Depot and install a conventional unit.

Other amenities in the bathroom were an access panel for the water pressure valve and clean outs.

I built the door from red cedar sourced locally in keeping with other millwork we've added to the reno. As cedar is dimensionally unstable it was necessary to glue and biscuit join the frame then I added architectural bolts for strength. The field boards were first overlap routed and float inside the frame as they expand and contract significantly with weather and humidity. On the inside I routed the frame rail for a closure pull and latch. There will be an automotive themed outside handle added when Paul gets to it.

By late April we were substantially completed our renovations and upgrades. This include replacing the electrical mast into the building, which was a big hurdle onto itself. We needed this to apply for our necessary permanent occupancy permits and business license.
Although not running a business here all commercial buildings require one. Once the application was made we waited for a building inspector. On the day of his inspection he came into the shop, looked around with a 270 degree sweeping glance and said
" so what are you guys doing ?"
"Private car storage and lite restoration of our own cars, mostly mechanical" I say.
"looks good to me"says the inspector,I will file the paperwork for your license,and then you can call the fire marshal" ,
"Thanks" I say. Total inspection time 60 seconds.
10 days later we get the Fire Marshall in
conversation goes like this:
" so what are you guys doing ?"
"Private car storage and lite restoration of our own cars, mostly mechanical" I say.
"looks good to me, you guys did nice work,you got the right extinguishers" says Fire Marshal Bob.
With all permits now stamped we were now ready to complete the shop with hoists.
First to arrive was a Hoffman 6000lb twin screw hoist that I have owned for 20 years,and had been moved from my old shop. Install was done in 4 hours.

About a week later the two new Bendpak hoist arrived. A 9000 LB twin post and a 9000 Lb stacker with a dolly kit for moving it if necessary.

The stacker is placed in front of the rear dood. Cars can be loaded from either direction but have more maneuverability coming from the back yard.
We had to move it in December when we had a Sea Can delivered (another story).

So as of August we were fully functional!

Lloyd will add more photos and commentary.

When we purchased the building lighting consisted of dead and dying florescent tube fixtures so one of our early decisions was to upgrade all the warehouse lighting to commercial grade 5000K dimmable LED. No replacing tubes, low power consumption and the light is bright white.

Here is the shop during demo. Where you see the pile of material (including insulation) is where Paul's lift is now located.

By October we were ready to squeeze in one more exterior project before the colder weather hit.
The plan was to replace a front wall that was mostly glass and 50-60 year old framing a door. We planned to do one side at a time as the two together could not be completed in the time frame we had available.
Ordered up the new framing and steel door.

With a 7:00AM start on Oct 7 we got the glass removed and some of the siding off within an hour.

Lloyd demonstrates the latest in correct position while preparing to start up the sawsall. Notice the new approach to safety gear compared to a year ago when he would be 8 feet up a ladder, with no safety equipment at all. Thats Lloyds son Rob in the background, master carpenter.

Rob and Lloyd were too busy working to take any interim photos but by nightfall, the studs were up and a combination of permanent and temporary sheet was in place to lock up for the night.

Chuck, we installed three of these doors, they are all 36x80 hung inside their own frame. The frame can be dismantled for install in an existing opening. The door frame can expand up to 10 inches.
It opens outward for security but primarily fire and building code. I think the brand is Accurate Door, which is a local manufacture. Its not carried by the big box stores. Ours were acquired locally though an outfit, Jacks Building Supplies. Additional hardware we installed were automatic closer and double Medeco locks.

Good luck with your plans.

I like your LED light strips. How do you think they're going to hold up? I'm going to "restore" my blast cabinet and lighting is one of the things I'd like to upgrade.

When we started on the building 27 months ago we were dedicating the front room to parts storage. Not long after we started reos we were considering configuration for additional car staorage. The east front room had unrestricted access to the street and the though of converting it into a single car storage, and still room for parts was hatched. It was not a priority two years ago but put on the too do list. This past March we agreed that May would be a good time to get this done.
The plan was to demo the old wall and build a new one with an opening for a car.
Here is what we started with:

8: AM Saturday May 19,the man door gets opened for the first time in xx years.

Thats Mike J doing the demo, he has been assisting us on many occasions. He is good at demo. Picks stuff apart in small chunks.

By noon we had a cleared opening to start the new construction.

By 2:00 PM we had started the stick build, after 4 trips to Home Depot (less than a mile away) to get the right materials.

Like everything else on this building project we over build, level and plum.
If 2x6's are called for we used 2x8.
If 3 boards on the header are called for we use 4.
Header gets screwed,glued and power nailed ,with Lloyd emptying the chamber several times. The way he works that power nailer I swear he wants to be an artillery gunner.
The level on top of the header is picture perfect, given the age of the building this was a major accomplishment.

So Here is where we left off on Saturday night, permanent and temprary sheeting was in place. left side pressure treated plywood on the bottom and regular on top. The right side sheeting was just to secure the opening.

I have a penchant for "waste not want not", so we used up the Tyvek from other work on the building and bought a small roll to finish up. Lloyd was not happy that we would not be numbers matching on the Tyvek.

Closed up for the day with the opening ready for the door guys.

Last steps will be to trim out front of building and finish inside, should take about a week, time permitting. This will be followed by re landscaping the front to do away with the lawn.

Last post,June 6, a lot has happened, all with the intention of completing the last yard, more like the last mile.
What did we do?
Completed siding.
Completed Drainage
New compressor.
First the building.
In the fall I ordered all the steel and trim I needed(or thought I needed) to complete the building. with the front construction completed by the end of May it was time to install the last of the trim and sheeting.
Obstacle #1, some of the drip rail has been used inside so we were short. Ordreed up the two pieces, new pieces were not wide enough, re order, wait one more week.
Got all trim in place and started on installing the siding, many cuts needed to be made on the remaining sheets and I calculated we would finish the job with no extra sheets,wrong. On Friday July 13 ,installing the last sheet I found it was a leftover from the side and 1 inch shorter. Re order time!!!!
The guys at Dicks Lumber responded quickly and by Wednesday we had what we needed, not one sheet but two, they must have decided ,"these guys always screw up the order so lets ship an extra, we know they will need it".
Sooooooooooo, finally on Friday July 20th, the last sheet went up!!!!
Lloyd, ready to cut.

Waiting for the city to install a new curb for access to that door,then Lloyd adds the wisteria,rhododendrons, maybe a cactus plant and we are done on the outside.
Inside we are fully functional with a new compressor(next submission) and now using the paint booth. and almost forgot the 65 inch TV always on Velocity Chanel or Golf.

A carry over from my Old shop was this Campbell Hausfield 80 gallon two stage compressor. It worked great for me for 20 years. We had it moved to the new shop and installed in the "compressor room".

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/AAA521B1-3EF8-4E4B-A0AC-F68392E80972_zps2mu3bcmr.jpeg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/AAA521B1-3EF8-4E4B-A0AC-F68392E80972_zps2mu3bcmr.jpeg.html)

It got hard use in the first year at the new shop with a lot of hours sandblasting,and the wear and tear started to show. Aside from the water in our lines we were getting blowbye.

Decision to replace: Lloyd had a hankering (hankerin) for a rotary compressor, super quiet and lots of capacity. Upon shopping around we found we could get what we needed for our budget but were advised against it due to our sporadic (limited) use.
We opted for a 10 HP,120 gallon horizontal tank and a Boge refrigerated dryer.

New baby arriving:

Notice the made in Canada flag.

One of the challenges was getting it out to the back of the building where the compressor room was.
Plan A was to move the car under the stacker and move the unit with the forklift. The forklift was 1 inch taller than the highest clearance of the lift. Letting the air out of the forklift tires was out of the question and they were solid rubber.
Plan b was to move the compressor over the lift by narrowing the pathway. This was done.

And the move was complete, next step was to get it in the room. The new compressor was specked out for clearance and we only had one inch on each side to get it through the door.

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/55266B3D-AF99-4538-AD12-1915CBB7E615_zpsyt5suqwf.jpeg (http://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/55266B3D-AF99-4538-AD12-1915CBB7E615_zpsyt5suqwf.jpeg.html)

Not to hijack the thread; but school me on dryers. I see many compressors with driers, most are not refrigerated. How effective is a non refrigerated drier? Seems if it were big enough, it would bring the temp back down close to ambient. I thought about using an old A/C condensing unit (with a bad compressor.... just bypass the compressor). Run your air into the condensing coil and back out into the compressor tank. Wire it up so the fan kicks on any time the compressor is running.

Stupid idea? Not worth the trouble? I guess back to my original question, what I really want to know is if a non refrigerated aftercooler/dryer is even worth the effort. Or does it have to be refrigerated to be effective?

Thanks.

Ok ,Back to the shop, where we left off was finishing the outside of the building. Next steps were to create two tracks to allow access and revamp the front landscaping. The revamp included a new walkway to the front door.

https://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll49/paulolds/51A8CDD9-B886-49EB-9A41-0AB9473AD5F3_zpsjtrtwewi.jpeg (https://s285.photobucket.com/user/paulolds/media/51A8CDD9-B886-49EB-9A41-0AB9473AD5F3_zpsjtrtwewi.jpeg.html)

Followed by the new tracks for entry to the parking bay:

The city would not alter the front curb as there is a engineering spec for a lot our size to only have one driveway entrance, so we have to live with race ramps to mount the curb.

Base rock and cross drainage:

Next steps were replacing the lawn with a less maintenance product River rock.
We estimated 4 yards and it took six, thats 18,000 pounds if you need to know. Hired a couple of grunts to do this.

Since we're almost finished the front of the shop we decided to add some landscaping for contrast. Once they settle in we'll trim the Yews to shape in the spring. We still need to build a small retaining wall at the property line to contain the stones.

Glad to see you at the show as well. Lloyds Camaro comes into the shop next week, so timing is everything!

Some of the Z/28 arrived at the shop today! Just in time... Since we like woodworking so much I'm going to rebuild the flimsy buck and add casters

Built a new, more secure buck and added locking, swivel casters for mobility. Transferring the clip was a 3 guy job, 2 guys to lift, carry and relocate the clip and a third guy to yell "careful!, careful!, careful!"

Its Canadian red and white cedar S1S2E in 1" x 6" planks that were edge (rabbet) jointed then edge nailed. It was sourced mostly from a local building supply store, Dicks Lumber.

Latest piece of shop equipment arrived on Thursday. Haven been smitten by the beautiful results of vapor blasting, we took the plunge and ordered a system in November. A 6 week build wait and our unit shipped late January. Got the machine to our shop And did the setup and test today. Results are amazing. Will be posting more before and after shots.

He're Paul on the maiden voyage of the VHT VH800P FL Closed Loop vapor blaster, it does produce some impressive results. The machine was made in Lincolnton, NC and was in transit for about a week during its 2,900 mile trek to Blaine, WA.. It must have encountered some cold temperatures along the way because it arrived with freeze damage. It is tested at the factory and wasn't fully drained prior to shipping so the hose nozzle split and one of the pressure T-fittings also cracked and spewed water on startup.

The vapor blaster produces a very clean, sealed surface on cast iron and steel leaving a burnished-like sheen. For most applications this is fine however with cast iron its a brighter finish than I prefer so IMO cast parts need to be treated to dial-in that brown-gray fresh casting color range. Following vapor blasting I use a semi-solid oil and, in the case of spindles and steering arms, bake them at 400 degrees for about 90 minutes to achieve the fresh cast look. As the oil bakes into the cast it heat seasons the metal and also serves as a natural rust inhibitor.

Freshly vapor blasted spindles and steering arms.

Ryan W31

A semi-solid oil is any (non-contaminated) oil that isn't a fluid at room temperature. For example, motor oil is not, coconut oil is a semi-solid. I happen to use coconut oil which comes in a paste form in food grade however other semi-solid oils work as well.

I picked up the technique from a couple of sites that deal with cleaning and restoring cast iron cookware like frypans - seems there's a web site for every pastime. More or less the same material so the process was transferable.

Thanks James, vapor blasting also does a nice job on brass and on copper plate by dressing and burnishing the copper without stripping. I've used it on rubber which works well and plan to experiment with plastic. Its a versatile process.

That's neat, they were machined after copper plating.
The finish is so nice for carb base plates etc.
I imagine the finish it will leave on an aluminum intake will mimic what came out of the vibratory tumbler WINTERS used to remove the green casting sand.

We've experimented with a variety of techniques, Evaporust, Low Pressure Dry Media blasting (of all descriptions), metal cleaners and polishes, Tumbling (good for certain applications) and nothing comes close to restoring metal like vapor blasting.
