Man Cave Refurbishment Just Finished!

Hi All

I thought you might are interested in a little garage refurb project that has kept me out of trouble for a couple of months (evenings and odd weekend days only!).

I had my single block garage built in 2007, and although I always keep it in good order and clean, I had been wanting to improve the interior.

The first step was the floor tiles about 2 years ago. Then recently insulated the garage door, and fitted some cheap 2nd hand but immaculate double glazed windows and side door.

Since Xmas I completed the following:

Cleared the garage out, and insulated the roof with 50mm Celotex
Plasterboarded the ceiling with moisture resistance Celotex
Installed 16 x daylight LEDS
Fitted insulation backed plasterboard to the walls, using the dot and dab method
Although I was quite happy with the finish of the filled taper joins, I found a plasterer who had a quiet weekend, so for a very reasonable price I had the ceiling and walls skimmed
All decorated - I’m pleased with the colour choice in the end - was going to stick with all white....
Matching plastic skirting fitted - all mitre joins!
2nd hand tambour purchased
Convection panel heater fitted

Save for the plastering, all was completed by a non-competent DIY’er - me! Also all done on a very tight budget.

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Almost finished

Car finally tucked away

Nice quality finish boarding and plaster make a huge difference to the space,will you be painting the last 2 beams white to blend in with the ceiling?.
