things are looking great randy, i hope your weather stays good until you have the floor covered, and I’m glad to see you have a nail gun, when i built my shop and my house my nail gun sure saved my arm, i had just had surgery on my right elbow and didn’t need to be swinging a hammer for all of that work, nail guns are one of the best inventions if you ask me, enjoy the day.

What the guys above said. I’m curious though as to how you’ll cover the transition between the two floors, rubber expansion joint?

Soba, they are pretty much butting together, tight joint, so instead of calking I’m going to use my own pre made putty by using saw dust and glue mixed then sanding it smooth than I’ll come back over it with the gray garage floor paint to keep it smooth and protected.

I don’t think I have to worry much about movement, I’m not even sure if that OCB movies at all but everything is anchored down with lag screws and nails.

Randy,

Looking good. Plumb and level. Again, nice to have help. 2×4 trusses? I have been comparing OSB and plywood for a lumber and lawn tractor shed. 1/2 the price of the plywood which I’ve always used. Work safe, not like me? LOL!

The AC is out, the 8000 BTU AC unit was covered in dirt and dust and will be replaced with an 18500 BTU AC with heat pump.

I am not a HVAC person but that seems like a very large BTU increase for the size of the expansion. I recall “Ask This Old House” show saying that the AC should be properly sized and not oversized.

Your addition is looking great. It’s too late now, but I was thinking it would have been nice to run some electrical for an in floor receptacle for any stationary tools you might be planning to use.

Regardless, the addition is looking great.

Thanks all

Klaus, yes T/G 3/4 for the flooring, 7/16 for the walls and roof.

Tom the Trusses are 24 center 2×4’s

WoodNsawdust, I figured on what you are saying but…. a human body generates 600 BTU alone, plus with all of the tools and the DC sucking the cold out and also it’s the smallest 240 volt I could find, got a good deal on it, it was miss marked on the pricing at Lowes I saved $24.00 on the price.

Mike that would have been a great Idea, thanks, sure wish you have some in sooner LOL.

Randy,

RE: the floor mounted electrical. You can run some plastic pipe and anchor to the floor joists and there is still time. Or maybe romex if that is allowable?

Keeps the wires out of the way?

Looks good, I assume the replacement for the 8000 BTU A/C is 8500 BTU and not 18500 BTU?

Power, if its still needed you could feed from overhead then down on jack chain that way its off the floor area completely, on that I am not sure of the power consumption of your machines, but you could also add an in line Isolation swith and run two machines from the one feed.

Thanks Tom and Robert on the electrical ideas, my building is but only 12’ wide so in wall outlets should be OK, if I do decided to run an in floor outlet I can still do that pretty much anytime once I start the wiring.

Robert, old unit was an 8000, 115 volt it was just enough to cool the shop but now since I’m upgrading from a 115 / 120 volt the smallest in a 230 / 240 volt I could find is 18500 BTU.

I’m not sure why the box is labeled at 230 volt when I’ll have 240 volt at the outlet.
