Introduction: No Mess Winter Garage to Keep the Shop Dry
This project was one of my better ideas. I have a 2 1/2 stall garage and use the side of it as my shop. I wanted something better to walk on then concrete, but didn't want it to get all messy in the winter. So I came up with this. I created a floor plan and layout to see how much flooring I would need and parked both cars in the garage to see where they sit and designed the floor around them. I went to the store and got the foam flooring that about 3/4" thick and created the layout I designed.
Step 1: The Best Part of the Design
After the flooring was all laid out I went along the perimeter of the flooring with clear silicone to keep water from getting under the flooring. It worked great all winter. It would hold all the water in the area and was easy to squeegee out of the garage. I had it close enough to the cars that when I stepped out of the car I stepped on the flooring and didn't create a mess. In the spring it's very easy to use a razor blade and scrape off the silicone.
