Shop is close to useable

My new shop is almost complete and ready for Suburban repairs.
I put the big sliding doors on yesterday, just need to make a few adjustments with them.
I just got done etching the concrete. Once it's dry I'm going to put down the Rustoleum garage floor epoxy.
Then tomorrow or so I'll be able to bring in my tools and start building work benches, storage shelves, and frame out the bathroom.
Once that's done, I'll work on building a second floor for extra storage.

I hope to get some pics today, so standby for updates...

Sounds like you've got it goin on. I have to wait til the house is paid for then I can build one. I'd like see how the floor turns out. Do you have the floor heated? That's allways nice when you're under the rig. Cold floor really makes the job a little longer no matter if your on a creeper or not

Here's a couple of pics. It's a huge mess inside because we decided to empty our large storage unit and move into a smaller one. All the extra stuff went into the shop.
I almost finished framing up the right side loft today. Once it is done, I'll try to clear off the floor, put up some sheetrock, do the wiring and build some more work benches. Then I'll tie the two side lofts together and work towards the front.

Oh, and I did not put heating in the floor. I didn't want to spend the extra money and was thinking of putting a wood burning stove in there.
