My first garage.

So we bought a typical danish brick house from 1976 in June of 2017 with take over 1. of november 2017. The house was in original condition so we wanted to do a complete make over inside and out apart from the roof and we did that over the winter and spring and moved in at easter 2018.

Together with the house was a carport / shed at 5 meters wide and 8 meters long, with an 11 meters driveway looking like this:




On the side to our neighbor there is an 8 meter brick wall that we decided to keep and build the new garage around it.
We did a garden make over i late summer 2018 too and at that time i got water, network and power dug over to the garage from the house. And cleared the trees in the driveway.



So next was demolition of the carport.



And get the concrete floor removed because the new garage will be isolated and with heat. So also isolated concrete floor.






A lot of concrete flooring removed

Time to dig out for the new garage and a separate room for garden utensils
So as i mentioned its going to be and isolated building with heat. Its outer measures of 10,5 meters long and 6 meter wide. There is special hight legislation here in Denmark when the building is in the divide directly to the neighbor. So got permission from the county too build it a max hight at 3 meters.




At the end of that weekend we had both a skip of concrete and earth

Next up was doing the foundation:






And making water drain in the floor.



Then doing isolation ready for the concrete floor.





So just before Christmas 2018 we were ready for concrete. But the it did not go as planed so no more work in 2018.

So 2019 started with casting the concrete floor and the when it was dry time get going.



The floor was done a thursday morning and saturday we got under way with building.





So the floor still needs grinding, which will be done next week and i am thinking of doing an epoxy coating on it but that will be later as its needs to be completely dry before that. So maybe a summer job

So the frame of the building is up and then the roof is next.









Then it was time for the danish tradition topping-out ceremony
Its where builders, neighbors and family get together for a beer and bbq.





So next was a thin layer of weather protection. Its a cardboard like material.





And the inside. This is the garage.





Now with side doors.



And a little drywall.



So now it was time for the plumber and electrician to do some of there job.



We closed the gate hole with boards until the port will be here. I ordered a Hörmann port and a door so it will be the same look. The port will be 3,2 meter wide and 2,1 meter high. It will be here in 4 to 6 weeks time. So we also decided to insulate the port hole temporary as we have to plaster and paint the drywall later.
Time for an extra layer of insulation before the drywall.



The facade panels is on backorder for now so we did some of the drywall instead.





More to come

Update on the progress.

The floor was finally grinned and is looking good. And the drywall was done.





After the drywall then on to plaster and paint. I don't have pic's of the garage only the garden room but almost painted and with the ceiling done. One coat of paint is left to do.



We have heat on in both the room and garage so the paint can dry and it was needed to dry out the ceiling plates before they was mounted. The power is not turned on in the building, that is coming. And we still need the light panel's to be installed. They are also on back order. I need to get hold of the electrician for an update on the light's.
The heatpump also need's to be installed.

But the facade plates are fortunately supplied and mounted on the end wall, the rest will go up next week.



Because there has been heat on in the building, the floor is actually reasonably dry and i am thinking of painting the floor in a couple of weeks, before the interior is ordered, delivered and installed.

The Hörmann port and door will be here in two weeks time so that will be exciting.

So a small update:

The rest of the facade boards are up and the metal cover at the top of both ends of the building.







And the Panasonic heatpump is installed





The pipes for the heatpump goes in the room for garden utensils





The only thing is that a ventilator is needed to move heat from the garage to the small room. This will be placed just under the roof, and we did an air vent at floor level to.

And we need to do the last dry wall after the Hörmann port and door are installed. Its the dry wall around the door we need to do.

But the rest of the walls are painted. So it looks like this:





Its going to be a big day tomorrow, monday as the port and door from Hörmann will be fitted

And the electrician and i just tested the LED panels that's is going to be installed. Its 60x60 cm panels 42w with full color spectrum up to 6500k and dimmable. We are doing 4 in the garage and when we did the test my girlfriend also wanted those panels in the small room so i ordered 2 more
I am still thinking of getting some spot lights to but the electrician is sure that the LED panels will be more then enough. Also tomorrow the LED panels in the garage will go up after the port is fitted. Then we can place them right.
