Looks great. Can I ask what you used for the skirting boards? Is it mdf strips?

Wow, that looks fantastic. Can i ask what the dimensions are? I am currently having a single garage built, insulated, tiled floor etc just like yours and I'm trying to picture in my head how my car (Mk6 Golf) will look in their.

Thanks.

Thanks for all of the comments, really appreciated.

The skirting is from the same firm as the floor tiles - Mototile

Cannot recall exact size, other than the width being just under 3m. Go as large as you can is the approach I think!

I really am pleased with the result, but do not fancy tackling anything similar for a while, as I did everything on my own - ceiling boards tricky!

Thanks

So may I ask whether the general consensus is to paint the beams white?

Thanks

I actually quite like the contrast of the unpainted beams - the problem is that if you paint them its a lot of work to go back to wood. What about some white vinyl wrap as a reversible option?

Good idea, but the main beam is a rough sawn timber.
