Get on there Danny mate-that`s the way to go......the first thing i did when we moved in here was to fit out the garage as a workshop.........Well.......Almost!!!wink 2,

You won`t regret it-so much space for ALL your hobbies.......Well,that`s what i i wanna extend i`ve said to Rachel-"No dear,i haven`t got TOO MUCH STUFF........i just don`t have enough space"!!!!teeth 2,Not sure what you`ve got in mind for yours mate,but,i`ve recently put heavy duty carpet tiles down (not glued,they lay nice`n flat) so any "accidents",and you just lift the tile and replace it,also,i boarded out the roof with 4x2 9mm plaster board(UNDER the beams mind so they`re not load bearing),cheap and easy stuff to do and,boy,does it improve the warmth,lighting ..........and acoustics for your Rock Tracks blaring out!!smile d,

As for the carport mate........Sod that for a lark,glad i`ve got my van,don`t do cars anymore!!!......good luck with it-OR,talk your lady into getting a VW both will never look back!!yes,

Hope you`ll do a special "Mancave" blog for your progress,i`d like to see that!smile p,

Will be watching out for posts buddy,

Well Andy,i don,t want to boast or anything but i,m having under floor heating and laminate flooring laidface 20.

A new roof(because the old one was leaking!) The space will be done in two halves,one my hobby room and the other for workshop and swmbo,sfemalescooter.The walls will be done in wood so as to hang shelves,and i will also be fitting  new windows and doorsface 7So all in all a lot of work for me and my mate which will cost me a fortune in beerbut hey you only live oncewink 2.

Thanks Craigsmilebut as i have said to the guys this will be a long buildwink 2so it will take a while before i can get pics up of the progresssmile p. It will take a week just to clear everything before we can get started,and to keep swmbo happy the car port is first on the agendasad.But never mind"i,m getting a mancave"face 20.

Danny......Underfloor heating??!!.....You posh git!!wink 2, You`re right,this project is gonna cost you a bit mate,i`ve done a few installations of that  for places,and even tho they were for very large houses,it`ll still be a pricey business with all the prep done correctly....I would have to say,well worth the effort tho!!teeth 2,

Dunno about "Changing" your garage buddy-if you`re talking New walls,New roof and obviously a new floor,sounds like it`d be easier to simply knock it all down and start new!!wink 2.............Go on..........You know you wanna!!devil,

Top effort mate,i agree with Craig....Would like to see the progress!!smile p
