I was also watching some dry pour stuff, and I think the ticket is going to be getting it watered so the whole thing can cure. I've been considering doing it for a walkway.

No outside cat anymore :-(. She wasn’t much of a mouser anyway.

And yes to the rest: sledgehammer, remove rubble, fill and level best I can.

Contractor quoted me $3600 to R&R, then pour a 12x20x4” slab. Sure, let me just pull that outta my ass and pony up!

Better than here. I got quoted $12k to pour a 30x40 slab. That's the reason I have no concrete right now

Be that as it may, I still don’t want to plunk down $3600. I’ll stick with the DIY

Did make more progress on the tear-down. Ungodly amounts of rat shit behind the plywood and especially in each and every drawer. Filled a Home Depot bucket 2/3rds. Gross!

I see now. You're clearing out just one side for the mustang, right? If that spot is 20' deep, do you know how wide just that area around the car is?

I'm just trying to visualize workspace. I need to build something.

My thoughts exactly - put in a lift.

Also - be careful with all that rat shit. It can make you sick.

Or you could save some money and dig a pit to get under it.

I hope I never decide to add to the garage as I can see how it would get out of hand pretty quick.

Thats $10 a square pretty dam cheap if you ask me. Id be around 18k if i were bidding that.

As for installing a lift on that floor. All i can say is you would need your head examined if you plan on dropping it on that 4" cracked up slab. At min you want 6" under the lift pads.

Figure the mustang is almost 6' wide. Youd want a min of 3' on each side and that's tight. With that in mind 12' wide min by 25L for a bench at the end. That would be my min size recommendation. Bigger would be better but youd get by with those dimensions.

I’ll have 13’-14’ of width, so should be plenty to open the doors. Unfortunately the load bearing upright is at about the 12’ wide mark but I can fudge forward or back just enough so the doors don’t hit it. I’ll just have to step around it all the timeIMG_1775.jpeg

I only have 20’ of depth and that’s with removing the worktop/drawer unit in the corner. But, that worktop continues along the back wake a good 15’ or so. So plenty of space to work on stuff.

Decided against the dry pour. I’m just going to rent a cement mixer from HD, buy a bunch of QwikCrete, pour it on there and level it best I can.
In the meantime, I’ve been Mr. Projects and finished the R&R on the shops back doors sheeting and pressure washed, filled, sanded and painted my front porch.
