Before you have to much stuff hung on the walls ya' might think about getting 5 gallons of white paint for the walls. That will really brighten things up. Check CL materials for used kitchen cabinets from remodels, usually pretty cheap and work well. Otherwise it's perfect!!

X2- our attached garage was “paneled” - white paint made a huge difference in lighting.

I’m hoping to find the funds for drywall this year sometime. That paneling is definitely not for outdoor use so it has warped pretty badly. Unfortunately I’m going to be replacing the roof next weekend due to some neglect from the PO.

Drywall = even better. Especially if removing the paneling allows the insulation situation to be examined. My 2 car detached is insulated....all it takes is a $30 1500W Wally World electric plug in heater to keep it at 55F-60F through the coldest temps here in NC, perfect "working" temp.

That’s what I’m hoping for. It is insulated but I’m not sure how ruined the left side is. The PO never trimmed any trees back or installed gutters and almost all of the fascia and soffit boards are rotten and in various stages of degradation. Water comes down the roof and runs down inside the wall then out into the floor. Hoping to get it all done next weekend.

After a really long time some things are happening. Waiting on lots of little bits to show up now. Still need to find some kind of PCV hose that can make a sharp 180 without kinking.

What size hose? Air, water? It all looks great....but that oil filter location is gonna make a mess when it's oil change time.

-8 hose or 1/2”. I had found a nice molded hose that worked perfectly but it wasn’t oil-rated so it fell apart.

The filter does alright and has been there for a while. Just stuff a shop rag under it when you spin it off and it’s not really any messier than regular b230 oil changes. I’ve always looked back and hated the way I did the filter and thermostat though. It’s just too cluttered. I’ll get around to working on a more elegant solution one of these days. Lots of more important projects to be finished before that.

How sharp is the radius for the hose ? Could you use a small section of aluminum tubing to make the bend and never worry about kinks ?

How's the garage fix coming along ? If you have it in your budget, consider Red Guard for the lower 5-6 inches of your walls. I did that in our garage in Kentucky, I would pressure wash the interior of the garage and not worry about the water ruining the bottom of the drywall. You can paint over it, it's discreet.

I need it to make a 180 in about 3-4”. Aluminum would probably work so that might be worth looking into. A couple of tube ends and I’d be in business.

I haven’t done much to the garage aside from building a 10’ work bench and buying a legit toolbox. Kinda put the brakes on drywall since I’d really have to do ceilings in order for it to be worth it.

I was gonna say, when you need a sharp bend, put in a barb fitting, metal or plastic. Something like this: https://www.mcmaster.com/91355k46

Congrats on the house and looking forward to project updates.

I was thinking about doing that. It’s pretty hidden under the intake. I’m leaning toward bending an aluminum line and using a couple tube ends if I can find the right parts to do that.

If I stay motivated I might get there. I don’t need to spend much more money on it so there’s that.

It quickly filled up with tools and bikes and I stopped after hanging new lights. We ended up cleaning out two houses so it spent a lot of time full of furniture and other junk. I just got it cleaned back up to a state where I can work in it.

If you bring this I'll thrash to get the 142 dialed.

I’m not setting a goal to have it ready because that never works out for me but if it’s drivable then I’ll bring it. The mountains are not kind to cars so I’d like to have a little time to make sure everything is kosher before sending it. We’ll see

Be sure to leave room in the trunk of whatever you bring to haul my '79 home with you.
