My original shop had a pit on the floor with a sliding hoist over head. There were issues. No stairs in the pit. You hoisted yourself up and rolled out under the front or rear of the car. Even when I became Geezy, I could still do that. However in spring, it would fill about 1 foot deep with rain water seeping under the concrete floor. I would pump it out, but it was HUMID working in the pit. Occasionally due to various automotive malfunctions, when working in the pit, early gasoline or later fuel, would rain down into the pit and onto me and my droplight. I always watched it sizzle a-bit before realizing it was time to LEAVE! My NEW shop has no pit, and no room for cars. Just me. I still find ways to get into trouble.
