My prefab garage restoration
 
So after being at this house for 4 years and most of the work on it now complete I have turned my attention to the garage its an old concrete prefab job 20ftx9ft and looking a bit sorry for itself but is structurally sound and now water tight.

Tidying out the crap

I now have a half empty garage so up came the manky carpet and time to prep the floor and walls for painting. I am basically doing half and half for various reasons.

The goal it to white wash the walls, grey floor paint more lighting and running water with cabinets for everyday tools and racking for the detailing gear and then clad the outside. Hopefully it will be done in time for winter.

Hopefully it will look mint I would love to knock it down and build a huge brick one but that would cost to much so I will work with what I have.

I'd seal all cracks and gaps with silicone too to keep bugs etc, mines sealed but surprising how many spiders and moths want to set up camp on my white walls!

Looks like a nice project :thumb:

Not a bad size garage and the added bonus of a side door and windows.

Would be nice to insulate and line the walls and roof, but not easy on a pre-cast garage.

Good luck with the project

I was considering insulting it the walls would be pretty easy but the roof would be a little more challenging. As for the windows I'm not a fan and will probably clad over them.

So after tidying out the garage and having a good look at the job the front tiled section of roof needs replacing. The wooden beam inside is looking rotten and roof is bowed probably due to the weight god knows why it has proper roof and ridge tiles on !!!!
I will replace the internal wooden beem then do the roof with either clear or Black Corrugated Bitumen Sheet not sure yet advice welcome.

The roof is quite easy to insulate as i did mine a couple of years ago -
Started out fixing wooden batons above the metal roof supports (trusses?) then screwed kingspan to the batons before sealing the joins with duck tape - i then fitted pipe cladding over the rest of the metal supports to stop condensation drips in the winter

Don't forget to insulate the metal doors as this does make a difference in winter
