I would only paint a garage floor if you get the super heavy duty stuff that they use in auto shops. Also keep in mind that a painted floor is really dangerous if you aren't wearing shoes that have oil resistant soles since, let's be honest, all Land Rovers leak. You don't want your wife walking across the garage and falling because of a couple of drops of oil.

YMMV but painting a floor makes it lot easier to clean with a broom, the other major change is lighting. Its amazing how bare concrete just soaks up light instead of reflecting it. Even the worst floor paint makes a huge difference with lighting. That said, like Jimmy , I hate a slippery floor.

The floors in this garage are fairly beat. I will do a cleaning with muriatic acid and see what I have . The plywood walls will get painted bright white. Hopefully plywood will start going up very soon. My goal is to be weathered in prior to winter.

I used to have 18,500 watts worth of metal halide fixtures in my warehouse. I changed them all out to LED's like these xhb3_highbay by LSI

Sort of, I had gas station canopy lights with a custom pendant mount before the company came up with this present design. (Wonder where they got the idea. )

Also hi-bays weren't around yet like in this thread.

I got my wattage down to around 8,000 watts. The summer is great but now we need to were coats in the winter while counting inventory.

I am in a similar boat right now at home as my work shop is 9' and my garage in 10' ceilings and need to figure out what to do next.

For painted garage floors use the clear grip spray on walking paths of the garage.

Just spotted this thread. I think your sub panel may be to small, I run welder and air compressor on separate circuits due to the different amperage required. Also have 2 separate 110 circuits for wall outlets so I do not overload them when running grinders and other equipment.

It looks to be missing a main breaker. So you will have to shutdown circuit from main panel when you want to do electrical work.

Looks to be an older garage, are you insulating before putting up the plywood/drywall?

The plan is to use styrofoam insulation. No plans for a welder so panel will be fine. It is a sub panel with the main breaker at house, I might add a disconnect.

Started working on roof, should wrap it up Saturday morning. I was 4 shingles short.... Then onto gutters, and 2 new windows, then some of the break metal work. I will start on repairing header for one large door sometime in December.

Just curious, is it the picture or is there a lean to your garage? If so, what's your plan on fixing that?

It looks like a garage from a Tim Burton movie.

It is just the photo. The Garage is in fairly rough shape but if I tear it down, I will have to move it to the current property set back requirements. I will be re-framing the front wall due to years of water damage, this will be the hardest part.
