  1. Hello all. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. It has been about 2 weeks from the last update. Had been working in the house getting it ready for Thanksgiving. Although it was just me and Holly we wanted to eat in the dining room for the holiday. Needed to finish the moulding, put up a new ceiling light, et etc. , small things that take time. Finished the insulation and drywall on the back wall. All the wooden shelving is finished. Plus all the insulation and drywall on the front wall and in between the doors is comple
  2. Thanks Barney, I appreciate the nice words. I will look into the door opener on the special track. Thanks again Jim
  3. Did some work in the garage these past few days. I convinced Holly it was too nice outside to be doing indoor house projects. Put up drywall on the far right and one sheet on the back wall to cover the insulation. And 2 sheets on the front wall again to cover the insulation that is up. For a total of 10 sheets of drywall. I used 1/2" ultra light. It maybe ultra light but a 67 years old I do need help. And Holly was right there with me. Started on the shelving. Made two 12 foot sections. they are 2 foot wide. Sti
  4. A few pics on the inside. here is the door with the special track to follow the scissor trusses. the truss is a 5/12 pitch at the roof, but a 3/12 pitch at the ceiling. The conventional door with a automatic opener. Floor sealer is fully dried. It takes about 24 hours. Very happy with the outcome. The first electrical outlet will be for the door opener. The extension cord is a little tacky. Thanks for viewing. Jim
  5. Hi All, It was a beautiful day and the concrete sealer went on. Could not have asked for a better day. The temperature hit about 62-63 degrees, low humidity and no wind. Thanks Jim
  6. Hey Barney, Ok, now I understand what you did. I can see it in the last picture you sent. Great idea. Thanks Jim
  7. Hi Barney, Both doors open and close very easily by hand. The one with the opener will be used more often. I am interested in how you set your opener up, but to be honest I am not following your pictures nor what you wrote. Thanks Jim
  8. Give Doug Seybold in Ohio a call and he will advise you if they can be restored.
  9. Hi All, Cleaned up around the buildings, looks much better. Approaching from the driveway. View from the street. View from the house. As soon as the next day over 50 degrees hits and it is not raining I will seal the floor. Thanks for viewing. Jim
  10. Hi Jim, I lived in Pompton Plains for about 8-10 years, then Montville for the remaining years. Jim
  11. Thanks for the kind words. Where do you live in NJ. I lived in the Garden state for about 35 years. Jim
  12. Hi All Here are the door pictures. The doors are 7ft 6" by 10ft. The one on the right has the automatic opener. The one on the left would need the type of opener that mounts directly to the torsion spring. This is due to the fact the track follows the scissor trusses which are a 3/12 pitch inside. Here is an overall view of the addition and existing structure. The weather is supposed to nicer tomorrow and I plan to clean up the debris in front. It is to warm up into the 50's next week, so I should be able to seal
  13. The doors are done. They look great and function perfectly. Plywood has been removed from the opening between the 2 buildings. Will have some pics when the rain stops. Going back in the house to finish up a few projects. Thanks Jim
  14. Hi All, Update on the doors. They will be installed Thursday morning, a few days early. I put up some insulation over the weekend. 7 rolls of R19 in the walls. Will need another 6 or 7 rolls to finish the walls in the addition. Have decided on drywall for the walls. Will start on the far end wall and front right wall. These walls will be for storage. Bought the concrete sealer but the weather has been either rainy or damp, so will have to wait for a nice clear day. But I have it so I can do at any time. Start of insulation. Have to
