Yes, after a couple rains I think I have the windows solved with plumbers putty, and I re-calked the whole front wall, and moved the roll up door threshold back 1"

Glad to hear you solved your problem & can move on with your man cave. The plywood on the walls is a good idea. I would suggest screwing those sections near all windows for easy removal for later inspections. Good job....happy for you.

Good to hear you are now water tight! I agree with sawdust about screwing the plywood near the windows.

Thanks, screws are used all around. All panels can be removed in case I need to run wires for cable or internet later on.

Officially 1/2 way done finishing out the inside, and have enough material to do some of the other half. Enlisted some help for cleanup. Now I need to move all the shelving to this side.

Slow going this weekend, Have to work tomorrow and the night race is on today. More finished around the 6' door and front wall. I am thinking this may be the final location for the projector screen. Out of the way, and no outlets or peg board behind it.

Did you insulate behind the plywood?  If not, and it's too hot in there, you can always unscrew the plywood & add later.  The insulation board on the ceiling will help TONS!

Be honest - that really isn't a shop. Your wife won't let you back in the house anymore will she? LOL

 

 

 

Shop looks great.

that is what I am shooting for. my next decision is whether to use the window for an air conditioner, or cut a dedicated opening for it.
