I went with 60x80 steel structure...wanted open ceiling for hanging signs (ceiling is brown)...for flooring I went with pigmented concrete a reddish brown color called Rawhide, was less expensive than an epoxy floor and never really have to worry about if it starts chipping/flaking...walls are tan.
All depends on the look/function you're going for.

Ha... was discussing this TODAY... lol
I am doing white or very light gray epoxy floors... this has been on my list for years.
I want to be able to see things if they fall on the floor + it is SO much brighter in the garage and under the cars, white floors reflect the overhead light up under the cars.
When planning I thought about The shops I have most enjoyed working in - they all have had white/very light grey/very light blue - epoxy floors... engine assembly rooms, labs, and highly prepared race car shops.
NO FLECKS...
If you etch a new floor with muriatic acid prior to coating it and YOU ADHERE TO THE INSTRUCTIONS you are VERY unlikely to have a problem.


PAD poured today - the building was delivered last week....
Monolithic pad 35 yards 4000# concrete with fiber 51x30 18" footers with Rebar,
1" Extruded polystyrene below grade foam insulation under the pad and footers surround etc, with 6 mil plastic.

Ha! Well, “Laaaaand Ho” I basically wrapped up with the barn build, but fear not, Quick! Right below this thread is “New Shop size, considerations, thoughts...” That I started. You can follow shop updates there. For some reason the first page of the thread was deleted and it shows that Postsedan started the thread.

Cheers
Dave

Wow, that went up fast and blends in nicely with the surroundings. Do you mind sharing costs by major category? Site prep, concrete slab, steel building, electrical, hvac, etc. Also, what thickness did you use on the concrete slab?
