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.




And a stainless steel sink.



And for privacy Lloyd built a door.



Notice, the brace pattern is a "Z". No coincidence there will be three Z28's in the shop.

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.

Beautiful workmanship and attention to detail. Given the "instability" of cedar, a sliding door is a pretty ideal application. You guys do GREAT work. Keep those cards and letters coming!!

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



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.
