Default Garage Kit to Trophy Room Finish Out?? DIY

I just had our shop built.

This is a 26íx55í.

Half will be Game/Trophy Room and will be DIY.

Other half will be my shop area.

Will split with an interior wall.

26x23 for Trophy Room side.

26x22 for Shop Side.

How do yíall suggest this style of kit building finish out in regards to framing/Sheetrock or OSB which are my main concerns?

Trophy room will have lots of barn tin, reclaimed barn wood, and faux stone.

I have it stubbed for kitchenette and a full bathroom on trophy room side.

This will be a slow process but as soon as we move in Iíll be spending my evenings out there.

Suggestions and ideas are welcomed! TIA!

put an oversize walk thru door in separating wall so you can get large stuff into the trophy room.

Spray foam that trophy room so itíll be easier to control temps. Whether or not you do Sheetrock or faux stone or tin, back the entire wall with 1/2Ē plywood. Youíll thank me when you never have to worry about where youíll hang anything.

Great info - maybe a little more costly but thinking 1/2Ē all the way around.

Spray in insulation for sure.

I am in the process of a new building with living quarters and
Most have advised it.

Going to follow this. Like the setup. Curios to what your cost is in the barn as it sits. Thanks

Looks great Ross! Where are y'all moving too?

I prefer the old wood and tin over sheetrock. Might want to mix in some bead board as well. We went that route when we added on at the deer camp, because we were starting to have too much old wood and tin in the other parts of the camp.

Great ideas Stolle!

We are building in Inez, should complete construction and close on the house in 4 weeks or so.

I like that area. Wade lives over there.

Faux stone would be cool. If you could find some old bricks and brick one wall with thick mortar joints would look awesome too. If you want to do rock I know a place that has a few

Shoot me a PM if you’re still interested in the barnwood and the wainscoting. I work for a custom mill in Fredericksburg that I’m betting we can find what you are looking for.

You could use T1-11 4x8 siding for the walls, stain it or paint it. You could hang anything you want on it.

Looks great!
Unless you have specific landscaping plans for the dirt area between your slab and sidewalks, I think you're gonna end up having ongoing trouble with weeds and grass growing in there, which turns into a PITA. I'm yet to find any material that is truly "weed proof", that lasts longer than a few years. And spraying weed killer on it, is just temporary, as well. I've got plans to pour concrete at my shop to cure this very problem.

Brunner, I am in the process of doing the same thing. I will get pictures later this morning.

I used 5/8" T&G just because. it lays better on the walls. One wall I covered with old fence slats, one other wall I am going to use a fabric material to cover plywood.

As stated before, do yourself a big favor and spray insulate walls and ceilings, you'll thank us later.

I am just going to stain my floor.

So glad someone else is one same project.

These are all very like minded ideas Iíve had.

Definitely staining concrete.

Definitely spray insulation.

Did you use open cell or closed cell Insulation?

I sprayed every exterior surface( walls and ceiling) with 2" of closed cell. Then where I put my apartment and trophy room I came back and sprayed 4"-6" of open cell in the walls and on top of the closed cell.

All I can tell you is when its 30* outside it stayed 60*in my apt and in trophy room.

100* outside it stayed mid 70's inside.

I'll get pictures today and post them.

These pictures are of the wall that divides trophy room from apartment. I built upstairs storage and out a mini split in there to keep the wife's "stuff" climate controlled.

Thanks for the intel JunkMan!! This is great info!!

On your exterior walls did you use 2x4 framing?

Iím little confused how did you add 4-6Ē of open cell on top of the closed cell?

Can you explain that?

Brunner, I used 3-5/8" metal framing for my interior walls.

What I did was fastened my studs to the horizontal perlins. I had my walls framed and one sided before the spray insulators got there. I had them spray closed cell first and then when they sprayed the open cell I had them come back over the closed cell. It cost a bit more but it was well worth it.

The closed cell really tightens up the building and gives some R value, then adding open cell it really makes it efficient.


You can see in these pictures the walls one sided.

As of right now I haven't seen the need. I know this sounds crazy, but we keep the living quarters at 76 in the summer. We don't like the cold. We haven't had AC or heat on the last couple weeks, as long as it stays above 62 we don't run heat.
