Hey, Egar. Thanks for posting this. We're also just beginning, and our raw space looks very similar to yours, right down to the stone floor.
A couple of questions: did you attach your matting to plywood or Masonite first or just glue/staple directly into the wall? We're going back and forth on the pros and cons of each. And can you share what kind of lighting you used to get the backlit effect? Thanks! Tara

I just started stapling it onto the walls. The siding is wood so it was no big deal. The lighting is just LED tape lighting I bought on EBay for under 12 bucks. I hot glued it for extra security.

Coming along beautifully! Very inspiring, as we're just about to launch into our project. Keep the pics coming!

Great start, Egar!

I hate to be picky, but is there any way to turn those images upright before uploading them? Sure would make them easier to appreciate!

Not trying to be a downer but I've seen a lot of people recycling pallets for "green" type of building lately.
How does one not know that there was any Toxic materials leaked and shipped on the pallet? Just my 2 cents. Carry on.



One can always go to
1001pallets.com to check out how the pallet might have been used!

It's my stupid iPad. I will turn the iPad and try that. As far as hazardous pallets, I could give a rat's behind. I've ingested too many toins to count restoring old motorcycles and vintage campers.
