    Bob, with the Shop looking as nice as the House and having most of the amenities, choosing which place to spend your "spare" time will be tough.

    So, here we are 8 pages later and time to get back to the original subject of this thread. The garage build isn't exactly off topic, it is being built to house the sedan, so let's just think of it as weaving two related stories together in one thread. I'll have more pics and notes on the building later in the week as progress has been occurring, but today a bit of update on the sedan as it becomes more whole. It should be getting here around the 4th of November, by which time the garage should be well finished. Good timing I'd say.........

    Great timing, I'd say, but then who would expect anything else? Sounds like you got your transportation issue sorted out, and the sedan moving in the right direction for a new homecoming. Congrat's!

    We’re pretty much in the home stretch on this one. The past couple weeks have seen many of the detail items come to completion.

    Weekend before last I epoxy coated the floor which was followed by vinyl base material being laid on. That pretty much got the interior to the point of being able to begin moving stuff in. I’m transferring cabinets/benches from the attached garages so there’s the whole thing of disassembly, reassembly…………just takes time. Well, that and unload all the junk that was on shelves and in drawers and shuttle that too. Anyway, I’ll be awhile completing all that.

    The other inside item that got done was the mini-split heat pump, so comfort should be easy.

    On the outside, the stone guys finished up the window ledges and post caps, and got the connecting wall built between the new building and the existing house. The gate is being built currently and is probably about 10 days out. The correct man door got installed and painted. And the final stucco color got applied. Gutters will be the last thing outside and are scheduled for the 25th. Well, maybe the light fixtures on the front will be last……..haven’t gotten the eta on them yet.

    The dirt guy came back and hauled off all the construction debris that didn’t go in the dumpster and set grade for drainage and spread a bit of top soil. The landscape guys are supposed to be in next week to rework the sprinklers for the lawn and planter areas as well as lay some sod and planter boarders.

    One of the things I haven’t made much mention of, since it’s not exactly garage, is that we converted the third stall of the attached garage into a media room. The previous owner had halfway converted it while leaving the garage door. That meant that it wouldn’t be appraised as living space, just garage, even though the floor was modified in a way that made it not very user friendly as garage space. So we decided to take it the full way, closed off the door, covered it with stone, put in a window, and today the drywall work is in process. Hopefully next week the woodwork and flooring will get done and we’ll be almost done in there as well.

    That’s pretty much it. I’ll probably be doing one last posting at full completion with a wide angle shot to show how it ties in with the overall style of the house. Not sure when that will be, but would guess somewhere around month end or so. Well, that, and the ’32 sedan is scheduled to be released from paint jail on 11/4 so might just include that in a pic too.

    Thanks for all the interest shown, it’s been fun sharing it with you all.

    The past couple weeks have seen little of photo worthy note on the garage except the install of the cabinets and some organizing, so one shot of that. For the original point of this thread, Greg delivered the '32 sedan this morning. It's fully painted and as crazy as it sounds I'll be disassembling the front sheet metal and chassis to get all the final drive train configuration in. We agreed to have him put it all together for the 2000 mile transport as that lessened the chances of damaging loose parts...........but I still may be crazy.

    Attached is a shot of the sedan in it's stall. I looks a bit tighter than it actually is, but it's not a wide open area either. Even with the land we have we still had to live within some size limitations. But then, I've never had a shop big enough................no such thing exists as far as I can figure......

    And just for grins, a pic of what it looked like the day we picked it up near San Francisco.

    Looks great, Uncle Bob!! Awesome stance and I love the understated color! It's a stark contrast to the eye-popping '40 coupe! Is that yours, too?

    Thanks Randy. Yes, the '40 seduced me...............what can I say..........I'm weak. Both those colors are '40 Ford. The sedan is Folkstone Grey, the coupe Vermillion Red. I find it interesting to see how much body styling changed in less than a decade during that time................much different from today.

    As for the stance........I somewhat can't believe I'm saying this.....I'll be raising it slightly to account for the added weight of interior and fluids when completed, but this is pretty close to what it will end up.

    Wow, I really love them both! The sedan looks perfect IMO! The stance is just right and that color is awesome against the chrome.

    I like your choice in cabinets and the work benches too. It's crazy how fast all that adds up but is so nice when you finally have it. (I'm still working on that part) Haha

    Thanks Ryan. I did a write up on the "Garage Journal" for the cabinets last year when I got them installed in the other garage if you're interested: https://www.garagejournal.com/forum/...d.php?t=341000

    Say what??? Ok, you can raise it a quarter inch if you want but any more than that would totally destroy your street cred!!!
