As Im sure ya'll know we moved to Az, My shop is still being built so Im working outta the garage. Which back in Calif isnt a biggie. But here we had a heat wave that set a record. Something like 50 days in a row over 110'.

In a garage wo AC and no insulation it was hard to work in.

So it took me quite a while to get this done.

I could only spend a few hours (when it was bareable in the garage) Plus with everything still in boxes and unorganized I sometimes couldnt find what I needed but made it work.
Even these cabinets I built I sprayed in 90'+ temps.

They came out good but not as good if the weather cooperated.. So I finally finished them a couple of days ago. It took most of the summer to complete.

One photo will be the before photo of the laundry room. Oh I did install the missing trim pieces in the photos :-D

Be gently please :shock:

Looks great Ron!
Cabinets are just not in my area of expertise. I have never even tried it.

50 days over 110 degrees? :shock: We had a week over 100 here in the Houston area but it's the high humidity that gets me. I have to change shirts 3 or 4 times a day.
My little shop gets pretty hot also. I have a big squirrel cage fan but it just blows hot air on me. :(

Great work, lots of places to put stuff which you will not remember where.

Heatwaves are a fact of life, and you had a goodie, which you will remember.

It will cool down just takes time.

I have a great builder. I axed him if he had any quartz that he used for our kitchen left over so he sent his guy with a piece of quartz that matched our counter top and island and installed it for us. Its cooling down now. Getting ready for my next project. This one is gonna be fun for me

Zulu, I would go shirtless, but if any women stop by, they would go absolutely crazy! :-D Nice job, Ron! By the way, if I keep getting all these orders, I may need you to come work for me. I would even give you a raise over what I told you before! I could go as high as $2.63 an hour! And I give benefits! It would be for your benefit to work for me! When I get my own T.V. show!

I sprayed them with a W/B white poly by Renner. Its a brand well known in italy (as its italian) and just getting marketed here in the us.

I like it its thicker than GF enduro and as I said I was able to spray with good results in very hot temps
