You will pretty much need the drive redoing to sort the slope out, from scratch as well if there's not enough stone down where it needs lowering.

Well a little bit has happened, with all the bad weather the builders have had other jobs to do which we're all in doors, it was raining this morning so I was surprised to see them pulle up but they did and they seem to have cracked on, when I say them it's just one builder and I imagine he is in his sixties.

Today we have got a part garage wall starting to take form, I insisted on this as we need to have the gas and electric metres moved and with the gas and electric board due round any day I thought it was best they had somewhere to go.

Here's what we have today.

Day 10





As you can see we have decided on blue bricks at the bottom (damp course) and we are having the rest rendered, we chose this as its in keeping with the street and to be fair look a lot better than the original bricks used on the rest of the house.

Well as I type this out its p**sing it down outside so who knows if the builder will turn up in the morning??

There is a plastic sheet on most on them now, I also on the wall as there is insulation matting in there.

Day 11

Well we had the building inspector out today and she (yes she) was not happy that the new drainage pipes were covered up and they couldn't check them, lucky I had photos of these, one down, the other was the fact the garage wall at the far end had non insulated bricks used and this is a no no.

Well that wall came down and was re built, what we got today was this-




Really starting to take shape now, bad news is I have to pay the second installment tomorrow.

I thought the door was going on the other side, maybe that drive won't all need doing after all.

I cannot see how you're going to get three cars in there?

Other than that looks awesome, good progress.

I did wonder what you was on about, I have had it done like this so that I can still use the rest of the drive way without blocking the entrance to the garage.


Should still be able to comfortably park five cars and still get in and out the garage.


I am thinking of having the whole driveway re done in the textured stone style concrete, had it on my last drive and that's been done ten years and is still looking nice.

Starting to think the same now, should get two in there and a work space area, bloody garages are never big enough, it's her fault, she wanted a study and a utility. Shock

Out of interest Carl what are you planning on doing with the floor? Leaving it as concrete, painting it or going with some kind of rubber/plastic stuff? When I was looking at redoing mine I never came to a conclusion on what was best.

I will have the floor and the lower sides of the wall tiled with industrial tiles, i have them in my other garage and they are heavy duty and clean up easily, plus they look smart, i may go for the dark ones this time though.

Other garage tiles-

Ooh, very nice, couldn't do tiles in mine as the floor was nowhere near level enough.

Wouldn't lighter tiles make it easier when working under cars though, as they'd help reflect the light up? Or are you not really planning on using it for crawling around under them?

I will use the garage for light duties and the odd bits and bobs but the main garage where my business is will be the nasty s**t jobs so to speak, a ramp, compressor etc makes it all easier.

    Bikes that's a bit of a joke, to be fair I love my bike but Jesus, last Wednesday the weather was great I went out and had a great hour or so hooning about, woke up Thursday and got literally p**s wet though going to work, it was horrendous.

    We seem to have ok ish weather in the day at work but never when I have the free time to go out on it.LOL

    It had a 6 foot fence panel there before and it's a misted toilet window so had no issues.
