Well the roof is done and now working on the 5” concrete slab. The floor on the old foundation was cut so that the new slab can tie nicely into it. Then the floor drains were installed and set to grade and lastly the new concrete wall was drilled 16” OC for the rebar grid, the tails of the rebar were set into the holes with epoxy. I know that floor drains are not required in a woodworking shop but its way easier to do it now instead of thinking about it later, my wife seems to think I will let her park her car in there for the Winter but that’s not going to happen. Hoping to have the slab finished in a few days and the siding applicator will come and trim around the garage doors, then the mason will show up and do the brick work, the windows will be installed, and the siding guy will return and do all of the outside finishing.

This will be everything complete on the contractors part and I will be left with wiring, insulating, vapor barrier, finishing the inside walls, painting and finishing electrical. You may have noticed I am pretty excited about this project.

Awesome shop.

I hate pouring concrete.

Looks like it is going great. My wife thinks the same thing about parking in the garage during winter. I also have two floor drains. I put a bathroom in my shop since it is a detached garage.

Do wood chips and sawdust create any issues when they get into the drains?

It sounds like you will soon be busier than a one armed paper hanger! LOL But keep the pix coming.
