The results are in: On Groundhog Day 2019, Punxsutawney Phil could not find his shadow. And as the legend goes, this means we're in for an early spring. 

 

=== Punxsutawney should be the aspiration for all weather “people”(PC). He’s as accurate as they are —

Ok.  The floor guys decided to give it a go today.  Humidity was lower and they mixed a moisture barrier in with the epoxy.  Tomorrow they'll come back and apply a clear polyurethane over it all.

The little flecks of insulation will be picked up prior to clear coat.

Looks great Carl, should last a long time. It will be much easier to keep clean. You might ask them what sealer they will use, and whether a new coat every couple years will make it last longer. You could apply that yourself. I did mine about 10 years ago, and it's our everyday garage, it is holding up well. I use the best concrete sealer I have found, and apply a coat about every 3-4 years. The sealer is designed for colored/stamped concrete. Butterfield Pro Guard 350.

The only downfall is when you drop a small screw or nail 😀

Just drive back and forth a few times, you’ll pick it up.  😏

Happy Groundhog Day!

 

Just set the DVR to record Groundhog Day on POP channel.  They’re repeating it all day.  How appropriate?  We’ll watch it this evening and speed through commercials.

I'll see if I can spot the can of poly when they apply it.   

 

The installer said to keep the door open today to let the fumes out but I got paranoid after seeing the neighbors cats mulling around.  I shut the door and will deal with the fumes later.  I figured that was better than paw prints in it.

The installer was certainly artistic.  He's been doing these type floors for 16 years and was very meticulous.

And he knew to do it right or not at all! (the rescheduling)

Sign of a conscientious contractor and not a sheister. 

Looks good from here!

Worked on a new counter space for out by the bar. Not that a party happens alot but every time it did we ran out of space to put things. People bring food and chips and things plus stuff to make drinks and the only place to put everything was either on the bar or the other two small round tables. So I have been wanting to add extra counter space around a sink that was out there. So I moved where the sink went and added to it.

So I started on this, it's 12' across and should hold everything, plus I will add a couple extra electrical outlets so the blender and or crockpots can be used, instead of on the bar or having to set up a plastic table. 

It has a good ways to go but it's a start, it's all ground contact wood with the counter made from 2 , 2x12's with a 2x4 in between to get the depth, they were ran on the joiner to have no cracks and will be sanded smooth and covered with many coats of marine Spar varnish like the main bar.

Looks looks great Carl, love the color.

 

 

Wish everyone was here.

Nice Floor there Carl !

My wife and I were just out there looking at it.   We've been looking at that nasty old floor for 27 years.  Can't believe it's the same room.
