in floor heat is nice if u leave it one.. concrete takes tooooo long to heat if u use it a few times a wk
Since I usually am only home on weekends I think the floor heat is out. My garage now is heated with wood and a propane heater.
Plus I have a frame jig and tube bender bolted to the floor and have no idea of where these will go into the new garage, and we have a half track which is very heavy.
