Well, even though my shop was functioning just fine I’m forced to reorganize. Now don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t perfect by any means but since I’ll have to clear out the basement completely anyways I might as well re-assess the situation.
Idealistic Plan of Action:
#1. Fix the root of the problem: I had problems with back-up from the drain as well as some leaking in the foundation. My plumber Brother-In-Law is going to help me out with the back up problem and I’m looking into polyurethane injection for the leaks.
#2. Address the Ugly Floor: I’d like to coat the floor with an Epoxy Resin coating to help level out some of the dips that the water likes to settle in as well as smooth out all of the rough spots that make the floor impossible to clean.
#3. Reorganize the shop: Since everything needs to be removed from the basement anyway I figure it’s a great time to make the shop a little more functional. I’d like to incorporate a lot more closed storage to keep things clean and maybe figure out a way to make better use of the space. I’d love to be able to have my bench in the centre of the room so I can walk around it instead of being against a wall.
Anyways, that’s the plan. I’ll keep you guys updated with photos as I go and, as always, comments and suggestions are welcome. Thanks for reading,
