    I have 5 kids, so for me, the first priority is a lock on the door.
    I have taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

    Yup, I have 3 daughters. The door was my very first purchase. A buddy bought me a kegarator for my house warming gift. Got to make room for that.

    For heating I was thinking about radiant heating panels in the ceiling. Any thoughts on these.

    Gear room would be fantastic!!!!! Beats cutting a hole in the dining room table to insert the thread injector so that is flush with the surface, and so that everything is together

    Gargoyle's list pretty much summs up mine as well.

    When I moved into my house, one of the first projects I did was putting in an epoxy floor, painting the walls and ceiling, and installing a fleet of fluorescent lights.

    I wasn't even in the house a month before I got the garage this far:




    I'm too embarrassed to show you what it looks like now...

    Raven,

    Love the room. But do you need to wear a white coat with sleeves that wrap around your back in there?

    What is the type of epoxy on the floor?

    What you described, is exactly the look/feel I wanted. I wanted it to be so clean, that you'd feel comfortable sitting on the floor to work on a project.

    It's not that clean anymore.

    I used an "industrial" epoxy kit from epoxy-coat.com

    I have mixed feelings about it. I made some mistakes in the prep, and the prep is what makes or breaks this kit. I think I put about $500 into the floor only to have it crack (the concrete shifted last winter and the epoxy stretched and cracked). No amount of prep would have helped that, but I think I could have done better.

    If I were to do it again, I'd buy 2X as much epoxy and make it (literally) 1/8" thick. And I would have dusted/cleaned the floor better before we started pouring.

    Sorry, I don't mean to derail the thread. Back to the regularly scheduled program.

    Big table. Really big table if you have the room. It needs to be at least 62" or so wide, whatever your typical width fabric + couple inches.

    Get a top of something like this if you can afford it. If not, you could use laminate and know it's going to get eaten up. Laminate is about as expensive as the cutting mats.

    I am pleased with my service from them. I ordered a 40"x60" mat from them. It had about a 2" crack on the edge when I received it. I noticed it about 2 weeks after it came in. I called them and they shipped me another one. They told me if I did not hear something from the manufacturer by a certain date about returning the old one, I could keep the original. Now I have two 40"x60" cutting mats. I also received a 40" straight edge (as a birthday gift). I wish I would have asked for one over 60".

    couple of thoughts on sewing room

    I built my table out of 2x4's for the frame and a kind of press-board 4x8 sheets for the top. I'm not really sure what they are used for in the construction trade, maybe sub-flooring, but they are smooth, no splinters or anything like that. Pretty good for laying out and cutting fabric. Got them at Lowe's or Home Depot. I also recommend a kind of Alabama shape sewing table, with my machine right in the notch at the bottom. This way you can lay your project out on the table next to your left arm, as opposed to on the floor at your feet or in your lap. ( I hope this makes sense, I would take a picture but I am too embarrassed of the mess and obvious un-use). When you build your table, don't make the frame (2x4's) flush with the out side of your top. Leave a couple inches around the perimeter of just press-board (or whatever) hanging over. This gives a good place to clamp fabric still while marking and cutting. Look for remnants of vinyl flooring while at Lowes, they work great as patterns.
