All wired up and tested. Looks pretty cool. This trailer likes to tilt back and land on the back. This bar will take a little beating for sure and a stay on.  :good  I'll have to get a pis in the next couple days

Just about to break out the sawsall and go at it. With so much paint in the screws you cant get a a screw driver bit in them to remove the screw. This thing is built pretty good. I bet if a tornado hit the house this would be the only thing standing.  :laugh  Trailer filling quick. Will be back at tomorrow since I have an eye appointment this evening after work. Need one of those stands with the lights on them so I can work on this after dark. Thats the only reason I quit on it yesterday as it got dark where I need to see to work.

Sawzall is going to get a work out tonight. Only thing I got to be careful of is that over hang. I don't need that coming down on me.  :eek  As for the electrical. He used very large staples to staple the wire to the over hang frame work for the lights he had mounted underneath. He put peg board on the bottom side of this over hang. Again using a bazillion screws. I have been just yanking that down using a couple crow bars so I can see what I'm dealing with up there for framing. One chunk I pulled a part of the frame work down with it. It wasn't attached to anything but the pegboard.  :rolleyes


Been 2 1/2 years since I have been and my reading glass's I have now seem to be getting a little blurry and driving at night the lights have been getting blurry as well. So a new set of reading and now need driving glasses

Yeah, gotta be careful with hacketry like that could get hurt, also gotta watch that you don't cut into some live wires, $hit like that never know what's hidden behind stuff, can be a bit scary.. :eek

I probably should go myself, been using them cheapo reading glasses probably should get some good ones.. :rolleyes

Got all the "Work Benches" out and into the trailer and the back of the chevy. What a freak'n cluster getting the bench against the original house wall out. I do have to say that a floor jack and a length of 2x2 does the demo'ing trick.  :laugh  It came out in 2 sections, A top and a bottom. I took the jack and just jacked the top up until it came loose. With doing that it also broke the 2 sections apart. Crow bared the top from the wall and out it came.  :good   Talk about opening up floor space with just the benches gone.  :good      Now we just have to deal with the over hang and the one wall once I fix the sawzall. The foot fell off.  :rolleyes  Not bent just fell off. I think it had rivits and they wore out or broke.

Cool, be nice to get rid of all that garbage. That overhang should be fun, of course if you can break it loose a bit, just let it's own weight destroy itself. :laugh

:laugh  :laugh   Your probly right. Once back from the dump monday morning I pushed the trailer into the garage under the over hang. Probly be just as easy to take the Sawzall and cut it and let it drop into the trailer.  :laugh   :good We'll see!!! Was taking a close look at the wire and I'm putting money it's 14-2 with a ground. I really don't think it's 12 at all. I'm not finding any markings on the cover. Just to be safe It's all getting tossed in the trailer.

I think this guy had to have stock in a screw company, owned a screw supply hut or someone was supplying screws for this. There is a bazillion screws in this sh!t. I worked a little on the over hang but got intrigued as I was pulling the peg board off the wall to find no drywall board behind it. I'm not sure yet but I think he may have ripped 2x6's in half to make the studs. They definitely are not 2x4's. Every bit of the electrical is stapled to I guess you would call framing. He bored holes in part of it to rout the electrical. One of them bore holes he screwed into just missing the wiring.  :eek

I sure love the cutting ability of a sawzall.  :laugh  Worked that baby last night and knocked part of the overhang off and was able to get about half the wall removed. Once the over hang was off I cut the wall horizontally to where I cut down the wall then knocked that over.  then just pushed the bottom half over He actually used nails to hold the wall to the floor. No not concrete nails. Just your everyday framing nails.  :rolleyes  Once I sweep the floor I will get a better look to see if I need to do any patching of the floor.

With just that out it really opened up the garage.   :good  Tonight the over hang against the house wall for starters and see what we can get done from there. Looking like another dump run is going to be in order.  :good

Yes They Do!!!!  :D   :laugh   Over hang is in the trailer. I just have about 18" of the wall left and need to pull the crap off the existing house wall and I'm done with demo'ing.  :good  I'm trying not to damage the existing wall any more that necessary. If I have to redo a panel or two, then so be it. but don't want to if I can avoid it.

I'm finding nails that held the peg board to 1x2's to the wall itself. Shelf brackets are held in by mollies in the dry wall and not holding. Also we found nails that had screws next to them.  :rolleyes Still have one shelf that's high on the wall to remove. Got detoured when we found the fridge wasn't cooling.  :banghead   Cleaned up the one from the gilbert house and fired it off. This morning it wasn't happy. So off to find a fridge. Found a nice side-by-side at Lowes in the bargain bin with water and ice. Didn't want a side-by-side but the price was right. Loaded it up and took it home. Delivery wouldn't have been until tomorrow and I couldn't wait as I had food dying. As it was we cooked a bunch that thawed already and had to do the rest this evening. That's OK, That steak was GOOOOOD!!!  :D  Had to toss a bunch of stuff in the refer side along with a gal of milk I picked up Friday evening.   :(

Everything is out of the garage and dropped off at the dump Saturday morning. I slapped the wall with a couple quick coats of KILZ to hide the green wall. Talk about making a huge difference. New cabinet that's going to be the new work bench is where I think I want it. Marked where I think I want to put two 4 gang outlets boxes and where I want to put the first shelf on the wall.  :good  Now a trip to The Home Depot for a 1x4 for the base of the cabinet (just to stable up the base a little), a couple gang boxes, acouple sticks of 1/2 conduit w/fittings, A couple shelf's and brackets and a couple 2'x4' pegboards. That should get me started on that.  :D  :good

I'm trying to get the conduit where I want aroung the work bench so I can setup the shelf's to get things out away so I can run wire later and not have to take anything apart. Right now I need floor space to have a place to put some stuff from a store room in Casa Grande we are scheduled to clear out Thanksgiving weekend.

I really need to start taking pictures of this stuff.   :rolleyes

Over that past several days I was able to get the bench where I want it and shelf's up. I also have the power where I want it and ready for wire. I won't have to move the bench to run the wire. The conduit runs behind the bench to the far end out of the way of the peg board that still needs to be put up. I probly will run conduit up the wall so I can put a light under the top shelf. Not sure if I will do a cabinet or shelf unit at the end of the bench for yard stuff. I'm trying to keep that stuff separate and together. Same with the truck and boat cleaning supplies. That's just so I can find it easier. In theory.  :laugh

Yea I know, I still have a lot of cleaning and organizing to do.
