56k Icon Miglior Detailing Ltd: Ongoing Upgrades in the Unit!

Hi guys and gals!

As lots of you comment on the unit and how it looks, I thought id share some updates Iíve been doing recently.

Hopefully you can tell that the unitís cleanliness and tidiness is very important to me. I try and keep my work area presentable and clean at all times but as things grow at Miglior, Iím in need of more presentable work space.

Now, Iím not short of work space really, my Unit is 3000sq/ft. But, I am short of presentable work space. Iím a bit of a hard wired perfectionist, and Iím never satisfied with my own efforts, but Iíll show you guys how I try!

First up...the front of the unit I work in is probably the most recognisable.








Now, with my company getting increasingly busy, I need to keep up with this and add another detailing area plus make the unit even more flexible.

Other than presentable space, Heating in the winter is an issue. Is there any need to heat 3000 sq ft if youíre not going to be using it all of the time?? NOPE!

Let me show you.....this is another part of the unit that I only really use for storage.





You can see here, itís a little messy. Itís not normally as organised as id like it, but in this picture, itís extra messy due to having the work done!




So, to tidy up things, plus isolate the single skin cladding you can see to make things warmer, a partition was needed!

So, inside a day this was done!!



Now, I didnít do that, I would have loved to have had the time and try but I just couldnít! The joiner did this for me!






Some eagle eyed viewers might have spotted it earlier; I have a LOT of high end insulation either side of the container. I picked it up pretty cheap and it has been waiting for me to get some walls up like this!

Having this partition up means I will only be heating just short of half of the unit. The rest is storage.

Once the insulation was in, it was time to board up





Now the board is on, itís time for plastering the wall to tidy it up!



I could have just painted it, but I wanted a nice finish!

Here you can see the sliding door into next doors unit. It was patched up by the land lord. Something will be done with this later!



Now the plaster has dried, itís starting to come together a little more!



Thatís it for now guys!

Keep checking back to see more updates! I hope to see some subscribers as I know you love this sort of thing!

Coming Up Ill be doing flooring, ramp, signage etc!


Cheers guys

Jay

Perfection

You, as a company, come across as a very very professional outfit to me, always seem so tidy and well organised!

I'll stop brown nosing now and look forward to more updates

Liking the 3rd pic down of all the Jays, amazing how long ago you did that but people still try to claim to be the first to do it lol.

Anyway unit is looking good mate, kinda funny shaped 3000sq/ft but nice big place. Interested to see the updates on the heating you install.
