These aren't so bad either...
Martini is good for the appetite (please don't drink it in the morning...)
Jagermeister is good for your stomach (although I once drank an entire bottle of it and had some serious problems with my stomach....)

I'm just joking... although it would be nice if they did give a little more info when they disappear for a while.

Of course, my family did have a contractor disappear out of the country once. We lucked out (compared to some other people he was working for) since he was virtually done with our place. He did fantastic work but in the end he took the money and ran. Some people showed up expecting their house to be done and found only the foundation sitting there. It wasn't exactly fun dealing with all the companies he had opened accounts with for supplies (lumber, concrete, etc...).

That's how I get most of my business...... people understand a contractors fee based on a % of the construction cost.

Murray
I know you were joking too. The issue with our contractor was he ran a line of credit all over town then ran away. He did do INCREDIBLE work IMO. It was a shame he left. <-- that really says something about the quality of his work that I can overlook the whole skipping out with the money thing and compliment the job he did.

Well....he returned this last weekend. Our guy is a family friend...but he had become like "where is Waldo?" He and his slave (me) installed the box and subfloor on the living space part of the addition over this weekend. He had been sick.

For Murray: The space roughly 20x30. We used 2 x 10 x 16 joists set at 16 inches. Ran two runs to a center beam supported by 3 cinder block pillars and the exterior wall. Oh...and used advantech subfloor. Thick stuff. Tongue and groove. Titebonded and nailed. It kind of went like this.....my contractor would cut....I would glue, he would drop it, I'd sledge hammer and nail....and then repeat over and over again. Me was tired this weekend. Oh and of course...I nailed a joist in wrong and had to pull it! Had it toe nailed x 3 and laced with 10 nails in the middle. Got to the far end...and it was sticking away from the mating joist about 1/2 inch.

And Murray...you are correct on the electric. Going to run a temp for now but ultimately put a box outside of the garage and bury the lines. The garage juice will feed the original panel. Hey...wanna come work over here?

Fear not...Waldo has been found! Next...concrete.

Best Regards,
John M

Hey Murray:

Nice work there. You need to take out that first floor above the basement garage and install a really nice lift for that guy! That place is a monster. Huge.

Best Regards,
John M

my new garage space

I've now got all the room in the world. This was supposed to be a barn but the cars took over. My 69gtv, my Dad's 1976 BMW 2002(green) my 2002(maroon)and Dad's 55 chevy parts (it's at the paint shop)He's still trying to decide on a motor. Actually there is still room for other cars and a tractor. I've still got some posters and signs to put in from my old garage, then it will be complete. My old garage was crammed with stuff it was usually difficult to get a car in it so all this space is a little overwhelming (in a good way).

Holy Smokes! Now that's a garage! How big is that? Looks to be about 60' x 80'.

I once helped set up an Italian car show in Seattle and had red, white, and green '71 spiders facing out in front of the main steps - looked cool, lucky coincidence of colors and year.

Here's my garage. The bikes seem to be always taking over - haven't had the red car inside for months!
