It started out tipped on its side?  man, you had more work  to do on yours than I have on mine.... been working on OSB and insulation this weekend, the worst part (other than dealing with fiberglass) was clearing off the 12' long, 10'tall, shelf unit so I could pull it out from the wall and get behind it.... I'm getting close to actually having heat out there too, heat that consists of something other than a kerosene powered salamander....

15 years ago when I bought this piece of ground and moved the house on it I said I was not doing any more painting.  Put in all vinyl thermo windows, white vinyl siding and the other buildings are steel sides and roof.  Roof on the house got hit by hail a couple years ago and it was replaced with steel.  One end of the animal barn is wood,24' wide 14 high at the peek and 4' side walls.  Not much to paint on it so that is the extent of out the outside painting.

It is always a good feeling when you refurbish something like your shop or house and it is like getting something new.  Nice Job!

Amazing that with just a little paint those garage doors have an entirely new look to them. :thumbs:

Glad your garage improvements went smoothly.

Do you realize how many kittens I would murder to have a garage like that. Looks great.

Those new (insulated ?) steel doors are nice...If insulated they will be much nicer than the fiberglass ones.

Those doors were purchased in 2011 and sat until this past weekend. They are insulated and are quiet when opened and closed. Those glass ones would rattle like crazy when opened or shut. 

 

All in total the investment was not too bad. Except for the 7 days of work to get it there. Oh, and I hate painting. We are quite pleased.

 

Thank you all for the compliments!

I desperately need to replace my doors on my attached garage. I honestly don't have any idea how the wood ones on there are still holding together. Nails. Screw. Liquid nails and tape...I guess that's how

What brand are those doors? I was looking at non insulated doors since my attached garage isn't heated. Every door I read about has negative reviews for being flimsy and noisy. I could care less about the noise...

If garage is attached I'd certainly go insulated on the doors. .
