Concrete work was finished today. Asphalt guy is coming later this week to set up a time/date to connect driveway to the concrete in the garage. Should be able to start building the wall between the bar area and garage on Friday...first I gotta finish insulating and putting up the OSB in the garage. I left the bottom unfinished so the concrete wouldn’t splash up on it before I painted it.

I would encourage you to not skimp on the painting, particularly the primer for this situation. I deal with the aftermath of builders using the cheapest material and labor possible for painting houses, inside and out, pretty regularly. do it right the first time and you'll be glad you did 10 years from now, 20 years from now. use the best quality stain killing primer meant for use on exterior bare wood that you can lay your hands on. getting that bare wall made of glued together wood chips sealed properly will make a big difference over the long haul. I'd suggest topcoating with high quality exterior flat or satin house paint, depending on whether or not you'll ever want or need to wash the walls. satin will be more washable and have a higher light reflective value than flat.

Don’t think TOO many will drive 8 hours to Jersey...unless they were going to Atlantic City anyways! There is fishing, clamming and crabbing...but it’s not like TD has it in Louisiana.
Lol you funny ole man. We don’t have the edible clams. I might just come visit one day. There is good hunting your way and waterfowl. I ain’t driving for fish.

Got the garage doors on yesterday. Did some caulking today along with putting primer over the black writing on the OSB and taped with painters tape. Going to rough in the edges tomorrow and start painting with rollers after that. We also got the walls up yesterday. Plumber supposed to start Tuesday, so I’ll dig the trench with my Kabota Monday.
