Done deal honey!!!

You've inspired me to take my garage to the next level... Thanks!!
Be careful designing the floor. I planned it assuming it was 20' x 20', but it is really 19'3" x 19'5". It changed the design. The wandering yellow line is actually interlocking rectangles.

I'd be curious to see how you hang your kayak. I've been debating various systems. Looking for simplicity.

Too true! My "20X20" is actually the same as yours!

The floor tiles are RaceDeck from Snaplock Industries. I treated the floor with RadonSeal first. It's a 19' x 19' space, a 5 gallon bucket was $150 delivered and there was enough to coat the floor and some external cement on the pad. The tiles were $1,197, delivered and were a "snap" to install.

garagejournal.com has multiple threads debating the virtues of epoxy vs. ceramic or porcelain tiles vs. plastic tiles.

The slatboard is on two walls. It took 11 panels, 4'x8' 3/4" thick, $500. It's great, I can hang stuff anywhere.
I am curious about the RaceDeck. Do the tiles snap together tight enough to form a water tight seal? Or would spills such as oil or water end up seeping under the tile? I really like the look of the floor.

Snug, and some water will run off, but definitely not water tight.

I just put together a gear storage area in my basement (a first floor 'basement' with ground level access) this weekend. Previously I had my gear scattered all over the house. Much mo betta.



I also installed a few new receptacles and six dual bulb 48" fluorescent lights in my bike storage/maintenance area. It's not a big area, so it lights up BRIGHT in there now.

Here are a few pics of my storage area/'garage'/home brewery/reloading room/gun room/office... in other words, my man castle. It's not as extravagant as some of your guys' setups, but it works for me for now. Normally I'm pretty anal about keeping my place clean, but with board exams coming up, I've let my office get a bit cluttered lately.

Very nice! That's a really bad ass man cave.

Not to mention a massive safe.

Nicely done. I love the organization.

That's true, it's not watertight: the pattern on the bottom of the tiles is designed to allow water to run through, assuming there is a slope to your floor. It's not suppose to trap standing water. But I sealed the floor with a penetrating, densifying product for that reason.

It used to house my red tailed boa. She didn't grow as large as she was supposed to, so I moved her upstairs to a slightly smaller tank, better suited to her size. I actually need to get rid of this tank, but it isn't watertight, so nobody wants it. It's a giant tank that I'd hate to smash just to recycle though.

My bulldog Diesel is a big baby and a chick magnet! Too bad my mancave is most certainly not a chick magnet...

We went with the Suspenz Deluxe Wall Mount Kayak Rack
The wife wanted something that would not damage the kayak but would allow her to get it by herself. We mounted it low so it would be easy to grab by the top handle and go with it.

Nice cave indeed! Can I make a small recommendation? Looks like the fire extinguisher is right next to the heater, which is all next to the shelves with rags and sprays. Might want to relocate it or have another on the opposite wall.

I've never had to use one, but always think would it be easily accessible and away from where a fire most likely would break out? Besides, you'd hate for all that ammo to go up in smoke!
