This is an amazing build!!! What do you do to know all of these techniques?!
I do IT work during the day. But can pretty much do anything, and if I can't I'll ussualy figure it out by reading up or get some pointers on YouTube or buying the right tools is ussualy still cheaper than paying someone to do something for me. I won't pay anyone to something that I think I can do.
Here a couple pics got the sink drain tied in to the other drain, and threw down some concrete to slope the floor into the drain. I found some pretty nice looking granite style concrete paint that's going on the floor probably tomorrow. And I also started laying out my electrical was reading up on the apex too.
Do you think I can build my own ato and Rodi barrel full using the apex and not need the tunze ato or the avast. I Don't see why I couldn't program the apex to do all that with a io breakout box
I need to slow down working on this lol my wallet can't keep up
Dang this is great!
I got the electrical installed in the sump room - no pics yet
Next I need to run the pex and then i can start the drywall - I think I may have a 180 Im going to use for a sump (going to be close the the room is 72" as is the tank)
Rented a lift made moving the 240 easy with just two people (luckily it didn't have to go in the house)
Also got the stone panels in and got them up last night, still have a few pieces left and some trim work
Ohhhhhh... I like that very much!
That is looking awesome!
Looks amazing so far!
that garage would put many houses to shame!!
Yes I had to slow down a little trying to save a little money, But I have started buying some equipment
I Have 2 BRS Doser 1.1ml
BRS 6 Stage RODI 150GPD
2 55 White Vertical Tanks for Mixing
I have Also Finished up the plumbing and tested for the tank down to the room
Put in some Insulation and Drywall Yesterday and Started to mud it.
Hopefully this week
Need to get some doors
Install Vent for Exhaust Fan
Install Ceiling Track - Going Drop ceiling in this room only for access
Put up my FRP 4ft around room
Very nice job!
I can't believe I haven't seen this build before! This is great!
You're right down the road from me. I live in Columbia.
Got a little more done over the weekend, Going to tackle the last door and FRP today hopefully. Placed another order for more supplies today as well Panasonic Exhaust Fan, Humidity controller, and Ressed LEDs that should finish off the sump room ready for real equipment (Side note has anyone seen the Apex gold for $750?? or on sale ever)
Great build! congrats.
Have a little more progress to post, Got the FRP up got a couple coats on the floor coating, Recessed LEDs installed and the Garage Side of the Canopy - not painted or finished yet
