Looks like you coated the floor, looks good, what did you use?
Is the hitch in the floor in the first picture next to the winch?

Thanks, I used an Epoxy-Coat kit I got at Lowes:

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Epoxy-Coat-...-fl-oz/3547112

I found a contractor at Denver's recent Home & Garden show last spring who wanted $2200 to 1) diamond-grind the brand new surface off, then 2) apply his product. I figured that's too much.

There's a story behind that coating, I didn't like how it came out the first time and so I sanded it down as much as I was willing and re-coated it once I got some spiked shoes. Don't think you can do the garage in 3 sections, one at a time (think distributing sprinkles) and have it come out looking good in the end.

Gonna be, yeah... I have a Receiver hitch + 4 bolts in the floor, I need to think about how to fab up something that will both work + can ideally be stored in that sears storage thing directly behind it, even if in pieces. I hope to not have to use it a whole helluva lot.

Picked up a CL find air compressor today. Old Craftsman 2HP 20gal model sold as a paint sprayer. I was after the higher SCFM (8.4 as 90psi) for the money than what I saw at the home stores. Only bummer is I need to wait for my move to use it since I need 220v. Might be able to re-wire the motor for 110v but honestly don't have an immediate use just yet. Just jumped on a good deal.



Thought it was a stationary model but it was just missing the wheels and handle

Something embedded in the concrete onto which I can attach a winch so I can pull **** that can't move on its own for whatever reason up the hill into the garage . I think that might be the next thing that still needs finishing.

This is how it began last fall/winter (in the think-too-much phase):

Very nice, Mr. Tubutis!

Since getting the winning bid at a estate auction on 05/07/2018 and making it a mile to my house where
" MJ " ( Majestyk JR ) overheated and needed a tow it's been a endless quest to get him road worthy

With only 94k actual miles, the original owner (RIP) only drove it a few times a month for the last 10yrs
while keeping it registered and the emissions updated
otherwise he's just sat out baking in the desert sun.

Here is what's accomplished to date, next item to be addressed will be the Factory A/C.

Radiator
Coolant By-Pass hose
Upper & Lower radiator hoses
Thermostat & gasket
Heater hoses
Belts
Carburetor rebuild
Fuel pump
Front fuel tank sending unit

Last Tuesday, MJ did earn his keep, making two dump runs after the nasty monsoon on Monday
Once it cools down a bit, already have a couple of new buffing pads and a gallon each of compound & Maguires #7

Moving into new Bullpen

Got into my new place finally and want to show off the future Bullpen. Need to clean it up, pour a floor, kill off the yellow jacket nests, get a lift, all that good stuff. To start, it holds my motor perfectly!

James nice looking Bull Pen.
At first I was thinking "he cant put a lift in there, no head room" then saw the 2nd picture.
When you pour the floor make sure you go thick enough to support the lift. I hear the concrete has to be so many inches thick to support them.
Now you could get a 4 corner lift with wheels and that may not be that big an issue?

You have that much land to have a tractor that size to cut the grass? What size is the deck on the rear?
Sometimes I wished I had one that size. It takes me 3 hours on my John Deere garden tractor with 60" deck.
People tell me get a zero turn it will be faster. I cant see how if most of the mowing is straight runs like in a field.
Besides zero turns cant pull a plow for the garden or push a plow for snow, used mostly for dirt.

I think it's got it's eye on the tractor LOL

Congrats on the new place.

5 acre plot. 84" finishing mower if I recall correctly.

Got a quote going for the pour, 4700 big ones... They'll use 4000psi concrete at 4" then 6" where I plan to put in a lift.

What is the square footage of your garage? I just had a 400sf 2-car suburban garage floor poured last November with the same stuff you've got, and it cost me ~$3500 IIRC. I didn't put in a lift, but had them add the provisions for a receiver hitch + hold-down bolts in the floor.

You might talk with the contractors about having studs drilled & embedded into the foundation beneath the floor, this is supposed to keep the floor stable & relatively crack-free over its life.

Around 960sqft. Still have more quotes to get. They will grade the gravel too along with some other custom stuff with the pour.
