Any texture added also catches dirt and grease and is hard to clean. I'd just do a good sealant next time.

That has always been my thought on epoxy. What about extended periods on jack stands? I really dont mind bare concrete in a garage/shop.

On a somewhat related note, Im going to acid stain/seal the floors in the house Im building, so I might test it out on the office portion in the shop as a test.

Same as tires if it's hot in the garage. The epoxy seems to like to "melt" to other warm parts.

Some really nice setups on here.

Here are some pics of mine. Nothing fancy but it is a roof over the head. It is literally constructed from vertical 4x4s with 2x's as strapping to hold the T1-11 sheets. I have been picking away and adding 2x4 framed walls with insulation and sheetrock. I take a wall at a time and then have added strong shelving. Then I keep things in clear containers that are really quick and easy to grab. I have one area for Bike parts, another for Rover and car stuff, and then home stuff. It is tight in there but I have done a decent amount of work on the 90.

Winter project is to finish another wall with sheetrock and make my fabrication zone with a tig machine and a small mill if possible.

Long term, we will make this a pool house with garage and that's when shit is going to get dialed!

What paint did you use on the floor ? In search of the elusive best epoxy floor paint. I have spent hours on the garage forum reading and still don't see a clear winner.

Mine is the same stuff. You acid etch the floor, then wash it out and add the epoxy in 2 or 3 coats with the flakes. http://www.armorgarage.com/fcoarwich.html
The Armor flakes works well. It is a little rougher then cement.

Don,
A lot of potential there. It looks like it was built as a pole barn with a flat roof. I think you win the prize for longest ladder! That thing must be 20' long.

Thanks Jeff - it works as is but I'm going to keep picking away at it until we pony up for a pool house/garage setup. I grew up helping the old man out in a horse barn with dirt floors and tossed out tobacco barn for siding so this is a big step up from that!

That ladder is big - weighs a ton but is solid when I need to raise any of the many trees in the yard. It's a bear to get it to fit up in there tho!

Nope. My DJ rig. And I've got a little pump/jump track right behind the garage. With everything I own, it needs some more work but I seem to enjoy having many projects on the plate. I attached a pic of that bike getting some use last weekend - riding trail but with 2 wheels instead of 4 :D

That is really awesome Mike... I may have to come check it out next time I am up that way if that's okay with you.

I'm good with that. (visit by Roverguy, forgot to quote)
I was down in Auburn (29 & Sand Hill Rd area) last weekend to pickup a bandsaw from a Toyota guy. He was giving away a Powermatic Model 2. It needs a bit of work but it was FREE!
It also weighs 2750 lbs but that's another story.

He mostly pushes electrons around sitting in a cubicle at Lockheed. He does have a bit of experience making stuff out of metal - wood was a whole new and unfamiliar medium for him when he started this project however.

I'd like to point out that Mike's only building experience prior to starting this shop was constructing an exterior enclosure for his air compressor at his previous house - something about the size of the average outhouse. Although this shop took a bit longer to complete than originally planned it turned out to be a really nice building - and I think Mike learned a thing or two along the way. He had a lot of help and actually did most of this himself. It's pretty damn impressive actually and we're all jealous as hell.

Thanks Jack; There are more glamorous ways to describe my job but that'll do.

I'm a Manufacturing Engineer at Lockheed Martin.

And he's right about my background, never built anything larger than the air compressor shed. With help from friends (I would only ask when I really needed help) I did everything but the grading, concrete & shingles myself.
