I spent several days swamping out my two car garage/shop (which hasn’t had a car in it for about 3 years). Organized all my tools back to their respective drawers and shelves, put a couple pieces of equipment on mobile bases, had a cutoff bonfire, and took a couple trips to the dump and the charity thrift store. Proudly told the wife “Now if it snows you can put your car inside.”

That was about three weeks and a couple of projects ago. It appears now like her window of opportunity has closed.

You have regressed from having a shop to having a garage. I made damn well sure that when my shop was rebuilt, it would never have a car in it. I removed the overhead door and installed shop made double doors, just small enough for a car to NOT fit through. I’m sorry you lost the elbow room in yours.

Yep, that’s the biggest mistake those of us who have re-purposed areas for shops make . As soon as the first piece of equipment enters that space the word “garage” should be stricken from your vocabulary. It will help eliminate misconceptions other family members may hold concerning that floor space.

ALSO this GARHOP was built a very long time ago. Apparently they never heard of REBAR so the middle of the slab it raised slightly and three major cracks radiate out from the center to the corners.

SO much so that the middle of the garage door sits atop on the and in the middle of the high stop on the floor and at the ends there is an inch and a half of day light coming through.

I fixed the air gap, but am wondering what to do if anything to do about that.

I figure I can clean out the cracks, fill them and maybe paint the floor and LIVE with it.

Sorry I have little sympathy for your ice scraping. My shop is 28×48 and still don’t waste space on vehicles.
