Picked up a new Husky 35" Professional Tool chest. Love how it swallows tons of tools and the quality is top notch. I had wanted a semi-useable surface for quick projects and it to have high castors to slide my jack underneath. This definitely ticked off a few boxes and the sale helped.






Then moved my newer Stanley down to replace a red smaller tool chest i had there.


Funny enough I sold it after the next day and actually made a great return after owning it for 3 years; bought it used for $25 and sold it for $80. I love those deals.

Did a little more organization with some new bins and a little more trim painting.



Before I painted the trim above the garage door.


After painting the trim.


Hung a VW art piece



Another fun shot...

Dubber, you're gonna hate me for asking, but is your ceiling painted?

Haha..... Newman! Not complete as of yet, slowly chipping away at the whole project and thus far I've only painted 1 of my three ceiling portions. Getting there though.. Other two parts require some more drywall/mud fixes.

Painting the ceiling was the only thing I didn't enjoy. At all.

So i had been dead set on putting an epoxy down on the floor this spring but now I'm having second thoughts. I just submitted a quote to RaceDeck to see what I would be looking at for a price.

Apoxy and RD both have their benefits and drawbacks. I just love the endless design potential a RD floor has. Apoxy is great, don't get me wrong, but opening the garage door and seeing a colourful RD floor makes me happy!

At first i was against the Race Deck since i will be using it for a winter car storage for half the year and we get nasty stuff here with all the salt. But i think if i clean and seal the cement floor then install the Race Deck, doing some surface cleaning throughout the season and two thorough cleans beginning and ending of the winter season which will include pulling it all out and cleaning the floor i should be good that way. The Free-Flow design appeals to me.

I just submitted the quote so i'm looking forward to seeing what this could turn into.

Rick I've got a few of questions for you since you have the set-up I'm looking at.
1. How visible is the actual flooring through the tiles?
2. Do you get that clicking sound when your walking on them as I've heard others do?
3. How easy is it to remove portions of the flooring by un-clicking some tiles?

Rick I've got a few of questions for you since you have the set-up I'm looking at.
1. How visible is the actual flooring through the tiles?
The diagonal pattern of the Free Flow tiles does an amazing job of obscuring the view of the floor unless you stare directly down. Take a look at the pics in my thread to see what I mean. My floor underneath is quite dirty, but you would never know it!
2. Do you get that clicking sound when your walking on them as I've heard others do?
Only if you disturb the debris once it falls through the cracks. The clicking only occurs if you let the debris get under the footings on the tile. If you let the debris fall and it stays stationary, you shouldn't get "cracking". It's going to depend how diligent you are with maintenance.
3. How easy is it to remove portions of the flooring by un-clicking some tiles?
Easy. Expect some knuckle scrapes until you get the hang of it.

Just a quick follow up to this question:

If you look carefully at this photo, you will see the footprint of the tile. Only when debris gets in there, will you hear a clicking sound. So, if the tile is lifted, and the debris disturbed, then that will occur. Keep crap from accumulating under that footprint, and the floor is virtually silent.

@ Rick thanks for the all the information. I'm sure I'll have some follow-ups but you have definitely helped tremendously thus far.

So here are my two ideas at the moment. Not sure if i want to match the blue to some existing things within the garage or the red to accents on my GLI.

Attacked the ceiling last night, man oh man, that is definitely not fun. Frustrating as i ran out of paint and had to run out to Home Depot, second time i was there yesterday! Also started working on painting my door way trim black, should be able to finish that tonight with the second coat. I'm going to try and paint a vertical section of my ceiling between two levels of the bulk head in black, i think it will work well in conjunction with other black accents against the white.

I'll have some pics up of that after shots likely tomorrow or Saturday.

Still on the fence regarding what colour i would chose for the race deck, if i end up going that route....

Did some more painting last night, here's a couple in progress pics.

One of the door trim after the first coat of black. Did the second after and i'll be pulling the tape off tonight. Fingers are crossed!



This piece was a pain as it was in a horrible state. Painted it black last night after and i'll be pulling the tape tonight. We shall see how it turned out.

Love the black trim around the door but I guess I am biased

Lots of nice things going on in the single.
