My shop is 5 years old and 1200 square feet. I put down concrete with 2” high density foam insulation and 6” of concrete with in floor heating. I did the insulation ,the wire mesh and laid out the pipe for the heating myself and built the heating manifolds myself to save coin. It is easy and relatively cheap to heat and it doesn’t bother your feet and legs like cold cement.A lot of systems are running with hot water tanks.I’m in southern Ontario so I would think we have about the same weather conditions as far as temperature goes. Shop is toasty warm all winter. I also made a 8” x 8” gutter across the middle of the floor for wiring and dust collection. The top is made with pieces of left 2” construction left overs.
