Any issue having combustibles or gas tanks or bikes in the garage with a stove?

Over the years it was maintained.









But I never really got organized right and just kept piling things in. Mostly Motor Cycles.









Before I could get started on a remodel of the interior, I needed to empty the building.




You never realize how much stuff you collect until you have to move it.



The good stuff went in to four CONEX boxes.




The rest of the stuff was tossed / donated / craigs listed / or ebayed ....







There was a small office in the back corner of the shop that was a poor lay out and bad use of space.






So out came the office...






The old construction of the trusses was going to need to be reinforced.





All of the trusses were sistered and the entire attic was deck with plywood.




In place of the old office we built a mezzanine .




The Mezzanine will provide a workspace for my computer and office needs with a much more open feel.







Ceiling light cans are liberally installed in the office ceiling for work and effects lighting using LEDs.





The old concrete floor was a cracked and uneven mess, also it was below the grade of the driveway and subject to standing water during heavy rains. So rather than jack hammering it all out. I decided to do an reinforced concrete over-lay with inlaid radiant floor heating.




After thoroughly cleaning the old floor an insulative barrier mat was laid.



Then the first layer of wire mesh went down.




The wire reinforcement will yield a high strength floor.





Then PEX tubing was wired down to the first layer of mesh.




The door openings were formed for the new floor elevation.




There are four separate zones looped through out the shop and office floor.













The office has its own separate zone.






The office also gets electrical and communication outlets in recessed floor boxes.









The PEX tube is sandwiched and tied between two layers of mesh.



Once the PEX was installed and pressure tested, it was time to call Granite Rock.




It was impressive to see the concrete crew work as a team.




Concrete was moving as fast as a pump by wheel borrow.





The overlay is between three and four inches.










The wood forms will provide a relief in the floor for sliding glass door panels.




With final skreeding the team gets the special high-strength fiber glass reinforced concrete mix laid down.



Once troweled we called it a day.

This is the first in a series of posts showing the details and improvements on the Dog House.

Stay tuned...........



.


That is a very nice garage redo...I remember back in my electrician days trying to get to the jobsites of a house that the slab was getting poured.The concrete truck was backing up and I was trying to get my floor boxes in before the big dump...Fun times

A question on the radiant floors; is it possible to heat the center of the shop floor and leave the outer three or four feet unheated, to allow for the anchoring of equipment in the future? Or would this cause differential expansion and subsequent concrete problems? Anybody done it?
