« Part 15: sealing and painting of ceiling done. difference between careful sanding and hasten sanding Part 16 of Garage Remodel series Part 17: Reznor installed and operational »

whew what journey. A welcomed journey full of new experiences and fun errors along the way. I bought this house with 2 car garage that has no insulation or electrical except a single light bulb and a single 15amp electrical outlet. Now, the ceiling is R-19 rolled batts, many 110v and 220v outlets, lighting, reznor natural gas heater, etc. Finally, a shop. Now, I can actually get to the wood working part :) (I still have to re-hang the reznor in the corner and finish off a couple electrical outlets). I hope these remodel / refurbishing of my 2 car garage helps answer or inspire others looking to insulate, add electrical, drywalling their workshop area.
