It's not even the largest one story house on the street

Pictures remain gigantic unless someone tells me how to resize when linking to an external site.

You prepare them for web viewing with an image editor on your PC. Set the image to, say 680 pixels wide and by whatever depth keeps the aspect ratio. If you can, set the DPI to 75.

That's a bit stingy with full HD monitors being the norm today. I'd have said 1024 pixels wide which gives plenty of room for those with 1366x768 displays on small notebooks. If you use Flickr for hosting, you can choose different sizes to share with even though you may have uploaded a huge photo file.

I have now resized the pictures to a 1024 pixel width, and re-uploaded them

Started raising the roof:



Then isolated it (weather outside was bad):



Fitted the acoustic ceiling and installed the electrics. Made both 220V (regular) and 400V for more powerfull machinery:



Used the laaarge spatula on the walls and prepared them for paint



Next up is paint and installing the 505 cm long electric and isolated garage port

Paint

The paintjob really improved the overall finish. 2 layers of paint made it look spotless:



The garage port was then installed. Works like a treat



Then began installing the working lights with my buddy. Each LED lamp is made of 2 x 18W LED pipes. I ran 4 of these in 3 rows, making a total of 2 x 4 x 3 = 24 pipes x 18W = 432W.



Next up was prepping the floor for 2-component epoxy paint.



I believe I filled and sanded around 100 larger holes. My plan was however not to make a spotless floor, since dropping tools etc. would become way to obvious.

Looks a great space, I don't think my good lady would let me get away with that size.

House looks good too
