Work has kept me out of my shop for the past couple of weeks, but I was able to get in there on Saturday and Sunday to work on preparing the shop for the new floor. I will be putting in a raised floor consisting of Pressure Treated 2×4’s, Foam Insulation, followed by a 6 mil sheet of plastic, and topped off with ¾ inch plywood. The 2×4’s will be glued and nailed to the concrete.
The clean out of the shop was a big task but the nice thing about getting most of the items out of the shop is that I will not be influenced by them as I continue to tweak my layout design.
Since our youngest boy is away at college, I have hired one of his friends to come and help me with the remodel. We will be getting the rest of the flooring materials on Tuesday evening and work on installing it Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. Then on Saturday we will tear down the existing wall and replace it with a much sturdier wall. If time permits I hope to get started on the tool island that will house most of my large tools (table saw, radial arm saw, band saw, drill press, etc…)
I am starting off with a before picture and then some of how the shop looks today.
