    This is mostly done. I'll get a couple more 45's, sand blast and spray them to match the others. As a scrawny 50+ yr old desk jockey who's just looking to not fall apart, I don't really need them. They'll be for my son and his friends.
    Other than a couple of 45 lb bumper plates and a GHD, it's about done. Having limited space is going to save me money!
    The platform is 2" of OSB under 3/4" of plywood or 3/4" stall pad rubber. The rack is through bolted to the platform using T-nuts.

    Right now my daughter is the only one using it every day and that's her squat weight in the rack right now. (No laughing She's tiny, just started lifting a couple of months ago, and is doing high bar squats with good form for 10 rep sets. Also good form on her body weight deadlifts in sets of 10.)

    Nice job, looks great.

    Thank you guys. Between us, it's a little fru-fru feeling to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm soft and lazy these days, but that incline bench is my favorite piece because it was a true, beat up commercial bench with many layers of paint over the powder coat. I stripped it, modified it, and last weekend I blasted and painted it.
    I do love seeing the beautiful gyms some guys have set up, but I think I admire the people who put together and use dungeon gyms with rusty plates, torn vinyl and chalk the most. It's what I had years ago, and somehow, it still feels right. I remember building my first dip stand from 2x4s and dowels with a hand saw, hammer, and nails. Build it far too wide, but we made it work. The pull up bar was a 1" black steel pipe we wedged between two trees, and half the plates were sand filled vinyl. We'd turn on the music, lift for an hour, go for a run, drink a can of mountain dew, and stack everything back in the corner.
    Now my gym has a swifter-spray-mop.

    Finally getting my setup together. I picked up a new set of Troy 12 sided dumbbells this week so thought I'd post pics of my little area.

    I know it saves a lot of space, but does having the DB's stored in their new location cause any problems using your bench for any exercises?

    Yes it is. We never used our dining room so my wife said just make that a workout room so we're not wasting the space. Overall it looks better than the dining room ever did LOL.

    No issues at all yet, the monos swing the bar out just far enough for incline bench. With standard j cups I don't think this setup would work and safties also have to be set right cause their is no way to fit a spotter back there.

    Put in a day’s work on these new lights for the home gym. Fixtures are made out of black steel plumbing parts and low cost bulb cages. All together, $150.00 for all five fixtures and nobody else has them, which I especially like. What’s next?!

    I liked them so much I made four more for the front part of the garage where the car and tools sit. The cool thing about them is that they actually also serve as the code-required metal enclosure where the connections to the power source are made. I also grounded each fixture by securing the ground wire to the piping for safety.

    Unique, good looking, well executed, and up to code is awesome, and grounding the housing to avoid needing a junction box is clever! Are you a building contractor of some kind?

    Thanks!

    I am not a contractor, I just do plenty of research and am very handy naturally.

    Next up is HVAC and insulation. Big jobs. Since I know you like the exposed wood, I'll let you know I'm going to leave the main vertical posts exposed and fill insulation and wall between them. I want this place looking NICE.

    Yeah, my wood shop is bigger than my gym, so definitely a fan. And no worries on your gym not looking nice. It's an amazing space and you've done a great job so far.

    Hope it's OK to ask about construction details on this thread, because I'm curious. Insulation is obviously a good thing since Minnesota gets both cold and hot, and I'm wondering a little about your insulation plan. With metal walls, do you have to worry about condensation issues if you install fiberglass, rock wool, or cellulose without a moisture barrier?

    Also, is your roof glass or plastic, or is it just the lighting in the picture that makes it look translucent?

    Just placed my order for a belt squat machine with Beast Metals Strength & Conditioning Equipment!

    Great customer service from Ralph, custom coloring, and a price that can't be beat! I went with neon green and dark grey to make it pop in the gym.

    I'm looking forward to putting this machine to good use for myself and anyone else that gets a lift in at the GST Home Base.

    I'll be talking with Morton about this. From what I know, they put a vapor barrier between the insulation and the inside wall, but not between the insulation and the outside wall.

    The roof is steel, just like the siding.

    You've done a great job with the lights, the gym is really looking good. Repped.

    Went to rep you, but I guess I already did in the recent past. Thanks for the compliment.

    Hello from South Carolina, I just upgraded my Dick's Sporting goods half rack, bench and bar after doing a lot of online research. My Gym also doubles as a guest room / Man cave and being that it is 100+ in the summer I decided not to setup in my garage.

    I now have a Titan X3 flatfoot rack, Titan flat bench and have a FringeSport Wonderbar arriving today. Looking forward to using the new equipment with my son as soon as our house guests return home after this Hurricane passes. Just have to decide on a FID bench now.
