    Gotcha. The picture with the garage doors. I'm trying to put a wall on the right side garage door. There are many different angles and the angle you were asking about is from the side. It's not from the top or from the bottom. I'm thinking I may have found the solution but I may be wrong...

    I will do my best to describe it. Is there a way I can email you and send you a video because this website will not let me upload videos. It has a limit on the megabytes size

    Here's pics for what I'm doing now. What do you think. That Gap is only 3/4" (vertical).

    The track don't exist up top bc there's a almost 4" gap... Metal studs plates aren't going to doing anything. I need a spot to anchor the metal then...

    Man all that so sounds confusing bc I've never done this kind of work and too dang poor (living off 250$ a week). But the foam panels crossed my mind and then expanding foam on the creases/joints. I'm not sure how to picture the steel Trac running as a top plate.... I just don't have...

    Hey snooby! Yes I will get more pics. Yes I want to leave the door there bc it's less siding I have to buy. I want to put furring strips CV and cover first insulation but I don't know what to attach/anchor the top plate to. Freaking 10 degrees out. Hate the cold

    How's it going folks. I'm trying to walk-in/enclose my one of my 2 garage doors. My building is built form the early 1900s for old Jeep's to be worked on in the military (Fort Riley, KS). It's galvanized steel. I have like 5 questions. Pics and video posted. 1. When it rains, water comes...

    New concrete or not

    When you say "cord" are you referring to the backerod?

    New concrete or not

    So how do I fix it? Do I tear out the old concrete that's budded up next to the foundation and drill holes for rebar or what? I have a feeling that the dirt between the concrete is going to push that concrete further away from my garage overtime.

    Neal,bi haven't forgot about emailing you brother. I took pics and need to send them to you (foundation). I couldn't find my 4ft level but I'll keep looking. Man this is what happens when you have an old house that was neglected for 20 years plus

    New concrete or not

    I have a sloped concrete drive that enters into the garage/shop. I got the house and it's been abandoned for a long time but I am having a few issues. I went to put anchor bolts in and it's not lining up level and if I do get it level, the garage is on the edge (actually hanging over the...
