Awesome transformation. Even the wood posts look better :)
It’s probably great to be able to place any tool anywhere now and not having to worry about it rusting or tipping or sitting evel. You’ve expanded the shop tenfold! Well worth it!

Lookin’ GOOD!!!
I’m in the process of getting my shop in shape. Just painting goes a long way to improving the place. Obviously, a poured concrete floor is a MAJOR improvement. I had conrete floors but, in very rough shape, so I laid “DriCore” subfloor panels to smooth the floor out. Ain’t nothing level, but machines roll nicely now!!!

Congrats on the upgrades, now go make some sawdust!!!

The strange thing is I am techniquely using less space that I was before but with the floor and (some what organisation) I seem to have more room to do things than before simply because as said I can put things where I want on an even floor.

Long way to go yet this is only about a third of it… :-(
