You could cut some shims to match the amount of drop in the floor...

When I say I'm not much of a contractor I don't think you quite understand the seriousness with which I say it :D

I'll try the cardboard.

[quote=Neil Kanterman;1019147]The garage is graded towards the front and barbells on the ground tend to roll making it a pain.

1. If I keep the stall mats, what have you all done to deal with the grading in your garages? I'm not much of a contractor, but I imagine some sand leveled out would work for under the stall mats. [quote]

I used paving sand under multiple stall mats to provide a level surface for (six 4x6 stall mats). It took some work to get it level but it is rock-solid now. I used pre-made sandbags from Home Depot along the exposed edges too keep the paving sand from spreading.

Plywood weighs ~75 lbs. per sheet, stall mats are around 80-100 lbs. apiece. For my platform that works out to well over 400 lbs.

It's not going anywhere.

Neil,

I'm glad to see that someone else looking for a platform is contractorily challenged. After reading this post, I ran out to measure the slope of my garage to see if I needed to hit wikipedia to find out what a shim is.

Luckily, my garage is at a 0* grade.

And for the record, I do know what a shim is. It's when you can't tell if a person is a man or a woman. I got that. What I don't understand is how do you convince them to hold up your platform while you work out.
