Wouldn't even consider it. The work area will turn into a nasty junk area and the value of your house will go down. Even is you clean it up the floor is going to always be nasty.


You don't know me Iam a neat freak. Planning on putting epoxy on the concrete so I can keep oil from soaking in and making a mess.

What are your thoughts on 2 garage doors on the end, vs. one bigger one in the center of the end?
I would like to get 12' equipment in if I needed to, and could diagonal park ATVs, Jeeps, ect. on one side on a single door.

What's wrong with that? Less grass that can grow.
