I plan on putting epoxy floor covering on my new shop floors as well before moving in. Still haven't decided on DIY or paying a professional though. Please keep us updated on how yours holds up.

Congrats on the new house and the much closer shop area...

Lance,You're building now, correct? I'd ask the builder, if they sealed the concrete(as is common) you may have to wait months to remove it.
I recently epoxied my garage and there are so many variables to the process and strict prepping and coating stages. It's easy enough for anyone to do if they follow the instructions but fresh concrete creates new problems from what I found in my studies.
Saying that, epoxy was the best thing I've done to my garage, I advise against anti slip additives.

New epoxy looks good. Now I will say due to time restrictions and work, I have started moving in a little early, just foot traffic and dollys no cars yet.

However today while unloading my air compressor (solo like an idiot) the bottom kicked out and it fell, smashing the belt guard on my trailer, and putting a pretty good gouge in my flooring(has cured about 3 days now since top coat).

After the swearing and walking up and down the driveway a few times, I checked the damage air compressor is fine, just needs a little straightening out. Floor appears ok, doesn't look like the scratch went through, it's deep but not to the concrete....sooo it work I guess.

Well that's one way to test it.

I am officially 100% out of the old shop, waiting for the floors to cure some more I'll put up the lift and hopefully get to work on some cars again. I'll post some pics tomorrow of how it's coming together
