    Nice flooring Jerry. What is it rubberized tile?
    Cheers,

    The floor is hard plastic. Its really solid. The tiles smash together with mallet. I was going to epoxy it, but read some bad stories about that. The other option was to paint the floor and that is what i was going to do. Then cosco had a sale so i splurged since i never had a nice garage before. This is what i got:

    I am very happy with them. I was lucky i did not have to cut any as they are super tough, not rubber. Its not often that i have had an empty garage as a starting point. Any old floor does otherwise. Grateful for a bit of space. Its taken a long time to get here. I have a basement and that is where all my parts and crap are, all piled up. I have to go through that next. By the way we just moved...

    Wouldn't it be great if it could stay that neat and clean as time goes on!

    A nice garage is well worth moving for even if it's to another state. Congrats!

    Yes, now i can mess it all up. Luckily no more rebuilds for a while, unless i find a basket case es2. so should be easy to keep clean.

    Great work there all you need now is a few work benches, a big vice as well a small one and a mess, its not a proper workshop without a mess but I am sure you that won't be long, anyway the best part is setting it up for you and your bikes.

    Organized chaos Nigel. :rolleyes:
    Between me and my son (and his buddy) who runs their YouTube channel out of the garage there is always something apart or going together. Thank God there is a second floor to keep the mess :eek:

    No such thing.

    Organised is organised.

    Chaos is chaos.

    Hang your head in shame even lower now...

    If this is going to turn into a ‘let’s show off our messy garages / sheds” thread please let me know now, so I know to avoid it.

    All those pictures of messy shops will keep me awake at night...

    Dunno what you mean...

    But you should see my 8 year old daughter ensuring all her pencils are needle sharp and arranging them in size order.

    Can’t imagine where she gets it from...
