In the beginning stages of doing a complete overhaul to my garage. I started off by ripping down the walls to the studs, then insulating and running additional outlets. The latest stage has consisted of installing an epoxy coating to my garage floor (quikrete).

It looks like you are off to a pretty good start on your shop. The epoxy floor works pretty well. It helps with clean-up for sawdust, glue drips, etc. I put it down in my shop about 10 years ago and have never regretted the decision. Keep us posted on your upgrades. It will be fun to watch your shop take shape.

Congratulations, eli; that has the makings of a very nice shop.

Doing the floor was a smart move … makes cleanup go a lot easier and you track less stuff into the house!

Wanna scoot down I-45 and help a fellow LJ out? You did the projects that I have left to do in my shop… And your floor looks great! That is going to be a nice place to work when you get done.
