Mike you have the most amazing setup! You really did some fantastic planning and execution was as close to perfection as I have seen. The ample space to work must make your projects much more organized.
Your garage and home are awesome.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words!
I just wanted a neat & useful shop that wouldn't run down the house. And it is a shop and not a play-pretty garage. The garages of the rich & famous are the ones to ooh & ah over not mine.
But I do have fun in the shop.
Mike

On the epoxy floor thing, I am another who wishes he had sealed the floor instead of put down epoxy. I used really good 2 part epoxy and 1.5 years later it is a disaster of burns and lifted sections. Any type of contamination (stone dust) causes the floor jack to scratch up the floor, and my jack stands have torn up a few sections. As soon as there are openings in the floor, the water gets underneath and starts to lift the epoxy. I probably do more metalwork than most, some of it is pretty heavy, but if you are planning on doing a lot of welding I think epoxy is not the greatest. I have to say though, it was amazing at first, we actually moved a 2800 lbs milling machine with nothing more than dish soap and water. It skated across the floor like a curling rock!

What epoxy did you use? I had none of those issues with the ucoatit system in my old shop. Current floor has sherwin Williams on it and it kinda sucks but the floor is 30 years old. I have worked on floors with the behr floor paint that burned like you mentioned.

Ucoatit will start to lift under hot tires after a few years. Even on fiberglass reinforced floors.

But ucoatit is very easy to clean.

It was Sherwin Williams on a new floor (cured 45 days), etched and applied as per their instructions. It held up well for about a year. Burns way too easily, and is very soft.

Any recommendations on sealants? How is it that the sealer holds up better? Does it get absorbed and the paint not?

Here's a crappy iPhone pic of my garage with the Range Sport Supercharged and BRG ST... For the record, I've got a GarageTek floor coating.

Nice Keith. Very minimalistic, there is something to be said about simplicity.

Are my eyes deceiving me, or are there a plethora of disco balls hanging above the cars?

Loves his D90...and Saturday Night Fever!

Not a Land Rover Garage, but it fits the other toy (barely).


I dont have any good pics of what it looked like when I bought the place, but what a mess. I spent $500 if not more at the local dump just cleaning it out. Every STud was sistered up because of termite damage. Also it had only a few cieling joist.

Cleaned it all out down to the studs, added some cieling joints, brought electic to it and installed a little sub panel. Put in some lights (need to add more), and put some flooring for the loft for storage.

It looks bigger than it is, just barely fits my mustang in legnth wise, and If I need to work on it I usually do a 30 point turn to get it like the pics show.


Still on the list -
  • Have a couple spots of sheet rocking left to do, and the cieling under the loft.
  • Add more lighting
  • Get some sort of retractable ladder for the loft
  • Get some interlocking tiles down on the floor (the floor is way to beat up to consider coating or polishing it
  • Strip and repaint the outside of the windows, and the trim
Pictures:

1 - Day I bought the house(Garage in Background)!
2 - a very short time after, This is after I stripped EVERYTHING out ( must have been 10 pick up truck loads full) . down to the studs. This was the one wall without termite damage
3. - Running Electric
4,5 - some random mid work shots
The Rest - As is sits now

Its a bit messy in the pics, but I have 3 projects going on at once right now.
I wish I had room for a larger work bench, the one there is way to small for my liking. Also the damn engine hoist takes up too much room. its actually my neighbors but in return for borrowing it for one small job he told me I had to store it indeffinetly. lol, so basically, he gave me a hoist for as long as I live here.

Here are my future garages. The single is a at grade front load for the wife. The double is a below grade side load. You can't see it from the pic but there is a 6x8 nook to store the tools, work bench, etc in the lower level garage. Will follow up with pics when it's done.

It also weighs 2750 lbs but that's another story.

Mike that shop is awesome. Post some pics of the bandsaw when you get it home. I'm currently trying to find a way to get a 6500# Hendey 18X42 home. May have to wait until spring due to the snow and ice.

Cheers

I was talking to a LINE X dealer here in Houston that was showing me how they are using LINE X for garage floors now. Lifetime warranty. The catch? 15 bucks a square!
