I have a two car garage. I need to get the measurements but basically one half belongs to my boat, camping gear, fishing gear and a few storage racks for miscellaneous gear. For now my shop is in the other half plus a little 4’x6’ that the previous owner remodeled to take away from the room we call the office and reappropriate the space to the garage. It’s a cool lil space for a Kobalt tool bench and some floor cabinets on wheels that houses all kinds of paint for now. Anyway… I noticed that even with my shop vac (Ridgid 16 gal wet/dry vac w/blower) going, there’s still dust that flies from the machines. I haven’t converted a bucket yet to put in line with it to catch the big stuff for efficiency yet but it’s on the list.
Fine saw dust particles floating in the air and settling on my boat. I take care of that thing immaculately. It’s a 2010 but still looks brand new. (It’s a lil Triton 17.5 foot bass boat, single console. It’s so much fun and I can handle loading/unloading it myself.) Last time we went fishing I saw the saw dust flying everywhere while we zipped across the water. I don’t want me or my guests breathing second hand saw dust! Lol
I want to partition the garage right down the middle with something that would act as a filter kinda… Air could still circulate through the garage but not a whole lot of saw dust could. It doesn’t have to be sealable but something I can throw a zipper on it for easy back and forth between sections should the need arise. If it needs to be rolled up and out of the way and secured to the ceiling, that’s cool too.
Thoughts and where YOU come in:
I immediately thought about canvas. I can throw a zipper in it, it will last for a while until I decide if I’ll build a second enclosure in the back yard for the boat and install an RV gate. What are anyone’s thoughts?
Are there any other suggestions? I want to stay away from building any walls or anything. As is I give my wife a heart attack every time I back the boat in. She sees “omg you are an inch away from the wall.” I see it as “I still have 3/4 of an inch to go!” Haha! So, for her sake… I won’t put up walls or board.
Has any one else done this? I searched forums and didn’t see much that could help…
