Re: The start of my garage gym...

Man, I am excited for you! I remember how pumped I was to create my Garage Gym...from the Painting to the Flooring to the outfitting it in it's entirety. I couldn't even imagine how I would be feeling with 864sq.ft of possibilities! Looks awesome and can't wait to see the finished product.

This gym is going to be awesome!

One question though man, why on earth would you have a 2 foot thick post tensioned slab poured? My father in law and I have poured slabs this size generally about 4-5" over a vapor barrier in WI. Do you have unstable ground up there?

Re: The start of my garage gym...

Where I live, it has to be this way for anything over 24X24...once you get to a size larger you need an engineered slab and it has to meet all these specs. Its the law...Sad I know, since a 24X24 would cost about $2000 and this slab was $13,000..

Ceilings will be 10.5 feet high.
