    I love the brick look! Coming along, wow!!

    Are the games going against that brick siding? If your looking to go wild with it get a graffite artist to spray florescent pinball related stuff on it. Just a fun thought.

    Good thought, I know of 2 graffiti artists, one is maybe me, when I have the patience, the other is an unreliable addict that can paint some really mad skill type stuff. Unfortunately I may be the guy :-/

    Cool if you could do it. Like I said it's a crazy idea and once you start there's no going back because of what your spraying on.

    The fumes from a spray paint can have ruined many of us over the years.

    Yes, I always wear a respirator now, even while caulking this evening I had it on, I get used to it.

    I wish I didn't like the sweet freedom that huffing spray paint brings.

    That still happens with the respirator by the way

    On another note; the camera on my phone stopped working. I finished putting up the brick paneling last night, looks good. I need to find grout the same color as the paneling and fix the seams and cover the screws.

    I'm picturing it in my mind...and it is spectacular!

    Be careful with the grout as it gets into the pores of the brick panelling face and discolors it/makes hard to get out. Try getting a mortar caulk that matches. Easier in MY opinion.

    #413 16 days ago

    Love the metal frame on foundation you started with, looks a lot like the start of a production office. I bet that 2nd floor is sturdy as hell.

    Fantastic idea! Thank you! I knew I was waiting to approach that piece of the project for some reason

    Thank you, It’s been great not having any center pole supports in the first floor. My engineer tells me I can fill that second floor with machines, and have 100 people go up there., Don’t know if I ever will have that many up there or want to have that many up there, but it’s a good thought

    Saturday morning workout... Time to give my old lady her security back, we haven’t had any trouble not having any gates. Now that most of the large materials have been installed, We figured it was time to get this going.

    Big shout out to my father-in-law for this one, he’s come over a few mornings to knock this out for us. He’s been wanting to help on this project and this was right up his alley, the man builds a fine gate. So far this is the only piece of the building that I have literally not lifted a finger to do, this guy is my superman.

    I'm surprised you didn't go with a barn look and feel, and a overhead hay bale lift outside the building after it was inspected and approved Forgo the inside lift thing you were considering. Looks cool, congratulations on a long project.

    So I’m going with glass window garage door on second floor so you can open it up when you want and have or will have a safety railing

    What's the room in the first picture? Pin shop?

    It’s just the bottom floor, I plan to make a corner of my garage the shop, then move the finished games to the playing area

    More work for the day.

    Also sent my boys on a scavenger hunt first thing this morning.

    And... celebrated nothing with a new bottle of bourbon

    And aged less than 1 hour in your glass, and mouth. Just make sure to not do construction at time of consumption, or day after.
