Whelp - won't work for me. Mine was an open carport on a modern house from the mid-40's, A previous owner closed it in. I'm sure no one put a vapor barrier down under the original slab. I'll deal with it or try something else. It would just be nice to have a brighter surface to work on and not lose things. Current mess from my son's E30 project we just rolled out the door yesterday.

You need more lighting.

Have the concrete floor professionally cleaned and add a bunch of 48" fluorescent fixtures.

It will seem like a new garage.

Agreed. Plan is pending, extra circuit in place, as well as perimeter outlets all around. And insulation! I get a half year for projects.

New Garage in Melbourne, Australia

We finally completed our new garage for my 1973 S2 Spider after such a long wait. So many problems with local Council approval system, 3 x neighbours objections, slow builders etc.
Now I can finally play with my baby again in the dry and not having tools spread out in the main house attic. We also built a self contained studio above the garage so I have somewhere to sleep when I have a fight with my wife!
We did the full Hyperfloor polished concrete which looks great, but no one advised that all petro chemical products that leak from old Alfas can stain the new floor which is a pain though.
Regards Simon

I like style, the "flow through" layout, and decor of course!
