I paid $3.49 per square and about $100 to get 8 x 40lbs boxes shipped SLC to ATL. You might get better pricing shopping around. I picked mine up from http://www.RaceDeck.com/

They sent me a few squares and some color samples prior to placing order. Prompt service/shipping and helpful folks on the phone.

Thanks - I contacted racedeck and they are certainly helpful. For the quitre simple black and white checker I was considering they are asking 2.49 (or was it 2.69? - forget now - that ballpark anyway) a square foot plus shipping.

Still trying to decide what to do - might just go the epoxy paint route and save some $$s - it will kind of depend how enthusiastic I get when I see the shop all sanded and painted and looking sweet.

After much consideration, I said "the heck with it" and left my floor natural concrete. I don't have to worry about welding slag burning a hole in the race deck or anything else.

One day, maybe my wife will win the lottery and I'll put the race deck down over all of the oil stains.

I'm with ya on that, oil stains don't look all that bad on concrete anyway. I'd love to have a show room just not in my garage where I work on stuff.

I prefer a painted floor, just because it is easier to clean up spills. I painted my shop floor with that Home Depot stuff in 2003, and it looks like crap now, but it sure is easy to clean up, compared to the concrete garage floor in my house attached garage. I want to clean it with acid and paint is. It is just so much easier to sweep, or clean up oil.

I guess I should get my wife a new car that don't drip oil huh.

OK. I won't lie. I'm confused by your choice of toys. The Miata I undersand. I'm guessing a full on racers from the roll bar, race seat and gauges. The Boxter I'm a fan of even if its duplicates the function of a Miata. I'm having a harder time with the Mustang since the last one I drove in '06 was a far cry from either the Miata or the Boxter but maybe it has some silly wide 1/4 mile rubber on the back. I do see the picture on the wall so maybe its just a sentimental thing. Is there something that we are missing missing from the collection? Maybe something that isn't quite so scary in those nice "mild" Ohio winters?

Fair warning that the girl came home with a bottle of tequila in place of dinner for cinco de mayo and I have been working on it for a while now so I'm really not trying to offend.

Now The Second Floor.

Second floor of man cave. You tell the wife your going to the garage to work. But knowing the 80" TV is upstairs always sucks me in. This picture was before gym was done. Plus I don't like getting my blue floor in garage dirty.

Chris, beautiful joint -- two stories of indoor coolness. Love it.

Boston, so you know, the Boxter is the wife's. Although a superb car, not my choice. I like the toy cars to be a bit more hardcore so the Miata is a dedicated autocross car. The Mustang (and yes, there are more elsewhere), somewhat modified, is a seriously fun and quite fast road car.

Hope you had good luck last night. I like the combination of woman and tequilla! Do provide details....

Question guys - moved into a new house with a nice long garage.

It's about 25x25, 10' ceilings. Walls are insulated and drywalled, attic upstairs. I've already built one set of shelves to get myself going on storage, work bench is coming, then I'll start other shelves as needed. There's an attic up top that I can use for storage as well. It's high trussed or whatever you call it so you can walk around in it easily.

My question is on heat - I'm on LP with a line running to the house for stove, water, heat, etc. I'm wondering if it makes sense to just run a separate line from the LP tank to the garage for a LP heater, or to run electric heat?

Any LP heater recommendations?

Here's a pic of the shelves and family:
