This will probably be the first of many questions I ask as I try to decide whether to stay in the basement or kick my wife’s garden stuff out of the tiny (18×9) garage and setup shop in there. Before I go into the floor issue, don’t think that it can’t been done in that space. Read this to see how it has been done successfully. (My motivation is to have a full 8ft cutting capacity which I don’t have in the basement.)Anyway, step one of the decision is the floor. What can I do with it. So far, this is my obstacles:
Obviously, the drain needs to be functional in some amount. Removing it not only poses it’s own hazards, it can also hinder sale of the house (since pooling water from a wet car in a garage is not a good thing). Also, I can’t change the grade to the drain for the same reason (so, no leveling compound).
The water drainage from the laundry room and the garage door are easy to fix. I’m planning on replacing the garage door anyway since I don’t want the role up in the way of a shop light. And the washing machine can either be fixed (new gasket) or I can put a plastic tray underneath to catch any drips.
