More Work on the No-Car Garage

The room "transformation" of the "Dynne Den" (the garage room) is going more slowly than I thought, as least as it pertains to being able to post photos of the progress. We were away on Memorial Day weekend,then had to get caught up on yardwork the weekend after that.Weather permitting, this coming weekend will be the time to finish up a lot of the work.

I did manage to complete the first coat of paint (Behr's "Corn Husk Green"), but another coat is still needed. D and I have been butting heads over painting the concrete floor, but I hope to prevail and paint it dark brown.

We opted against a real renovation (drywall, floors, insulation, heating,plumbing, windows, etc.) primarily because we don't want to do anything that can't be easily "undone" come winter, when we will need to store a snowblower in there.


More work:

Basement/concrete paint in Behr's Corn Husk Green

D installing rubber-backed 95%-recycled "garage carpet" from the Big Orange home improvement store. You can actually drive a car over it, so it'll be perfect for snowblower storage. It was our most expensive purchase at around $6 per 18" square.

We tried to keep the modular carpeting a bit away from the walls, just in case the "waterproof" paint isn't quite as resilient as we hope.
