How is the floor coating holding up? I want to do my floor like that but have heard that some coatings hold up better that others. Looks. Nice.

Floor is holding up just fine. I used the 2part epoxy rustoleum floor kit for garages because it's gas resistant over the industrial kit. I was on a budget otherwise i would of went with something like ucoat. I put down two coats cost about $200.00. It's all in the prep i have almost three days worth of pressure washing, filling cracks, and acid etching the floor. I also let it cure for 7 days until i put a car in there.

No insulation no real need for it. I don't keep my car here in winter i store it elsewhere. I have a portable heater for the cold days when i have to work on the DD. Never had a problem before.

Looks good, I wish I had that setup! Although here in Alaska insulation is a must...
