I'm right there with you... the wood should be durable enough till I can get a chance to button up all the odds and ends of the rest of the building, but I'm actually going to be placing light gauge steel 4'x4' squares across the entire floor area, and an epoxy sealer to seal the edge gaps so oils and fluids can't get underneath.

I'll be placing grip tape and rubber matting on all the walking areas because a steel floor will probably be slippery, and probably screwing down some aluminum diamond plate along the leading doorway edge to keep the edge clean and dry and damage free.

Also got a bunch of fiberglass curtains for pretty cheap, I have an idea for a shop curtain and rod system to section off areas for welding and even painting!

The whole time I was pulling the car in, I was like "please let my math be right, please let my math be right!!".

My initial design was supposed to hold 3 times the weight of the civic in a 4x4' area before hitting the flex limits of my spans. It'll be alright.... lol

Dude, cow mats would be awesome. Didn't even think of that!

Roof is done. I'm not usually the type to nitpick about stuff like this because I am function over form all the way, but I'm "slightly" pissed about this one lol.

All the shingle bundles were all labeled the same color of weathered grey, my order showed that I ordered 16 bundles of weathered grey, but 1/20th of my roof disagrees:

I literally threw the bundles up and got them all installed in about 4 hours last weekend, and never even noticed this until they were all up lmao. A random corner on the left side and a strip through the fucking middle on the right side is "charcoal grey".

Ridgecap is on, and finished trimming the front and rear overhangs today. No more roof work!
