The Making Of A Pallet Wood Wall

This is a little bit of information on Garage decorating and the creation of cool accent walls using old pallet wood. This is a project we started in our basement garage to spruce up the walls with a reclaimed wood wall feel on the cheap.

We started the process by installing 2×4 nailer studs to the concrete walls. We then installed 3/8 inch particle board by nailing the 4×8 sheets to the recently installed studs. Next you have 2 options, you can paint the backer board black or take the easier path which we did. We stapled the thinnest roofing felt we could find to the particle board. This is so no gaps in the boards show through.

Installing Heating and Cooling in your Garage!

For the ultimate garage experience environmental control is mandatory. In this video we will discuss the various options for heating and cooling your garage and then a more detailed discussion of my preferred method, the Minisplit system.
