It's where I hide from the Mrs
A lot of prep went into this project, a lot of things went wrong regardless of the preparation :D
Project: Man Cave
10th Feb 2016...
After struggling with the last project because of issues with space, I need to organise the garage better.
Ugh.. I can't work like this!
The weather gets through the gaps!
There's a motorbike in here somewhere
Yay! A new electric roller garage door
Right, that's nearly everything out
The room feels bigger with the white paint :)
Using up all the old paint pots
It's taken a lot of paint!
Ok, I need to raise this floor
The blocks look damaged by something... a corrosive spill in the past perhaps?
OK, I think I know how to do this!
...Or so I thought!
While at the shop, someone told me that I can lay this as a dry mix instead of using a wet mix as I originally was going to do.
Hu! didn't think that would work.
I would have thought that 10.5 bags of sand and 3 bags of cement would look 'more'
Time I started working on 3D Models
OK, it's been 4 days, that floor should be all set, let's go and look
It's pitted and crumbling... knew I should have used a wet mix!
Ok, so I have a problem. Let's buckle up and see if we can't correct this with some leveling compound.
It's not pefect but it's better than it was!
And back to the paiting again
One more coat of leveling compound
Hmmm, not sure about this?
I worry about that gas pipe!
Don't want this happening!
Garage: outside front
Could probably do with an outside light here
The pedestal idea was born
Some repair work
This time, I do it my way! WET MIX!
Not bad for a bit of freestyle cement sculpturing :D
After doing lots of research, I've decided to use this on the floor
Yeah! This'll pass the DAZ doorstep challenge 'nee'-bother
While the paint dries; 3D model time begins
The paint has dried
Oooh look at the pretty floor
Picked up a free PC. Thanks Gerry, this will go nice in the man cave!
Time to start on the bike parking slot
Parking slot complete
Pleased I opted for a git texture, this paint can get a little slippery when wet
The start of the frame for the partition
Hmmm, which way should I put this noggin?
I'm pleased I have my Dad on speed-dial haha
Looks like the dog has had a hard day...she hasn't!
The great divide between light and dark
I still worry about that gas pipe!
Hmm the angle is too steep
TV's don't kill, steep angles on brackets do!
Hidden conduit for TV cables
Delivery Round 3
Can't have too many screws!
How's this work?
Did I show you my screws?
Oh, what about my box of tricks?
Ok, what about my new white board then?
