Yup, I have put in a new floor in the workshop to get it ready for the Swedish winter. The old floor were just old, and more or less rotted wooden planks with no insulation, so you can imagine what last winter was like in the workshop!
Anyway, instead of tearing out everything from the shop (not gonna happen) I decided to raise the floor a few inches and use the old floor as a foundation for the new one. I put windpaper (direct translation, I don't know what the heck it's called in english, but it's black, thick paper to stop wind getting through) on the old floor, then I nailed in the framework to hold the new floor, insulated it and put the new floor on.

The result can be seen in the picture. So hopefully this pipemaking winter will be a bit warmer!

I like how you didn't even move the benches. :-) Putting in a floor sounds like a good idea. I may have to do that at some point. If I do, though, I'll put in a padded floor so I can drop my pipes without consequence. :-D

Simple and functional, looks good. Just make sure you don't knock over a bottle of dye on it....

Looks Great! I had my a/c and heat blow up in the shop, had to move everything so the workers can put in the new unit. Hope I can get back to work soon . I'm having withdrawal. Enjoy your new floor and don't spill anything.LOL.

Ehm, well, actually I've already spilled a few dropps of red stain on it, but don't worry, it was for a good cause (staining a pipe) and it looks like blood, which makes it extra cool right? ;)

Very nice looking! I like the way you did it without disrupting your shop too much. Great work!
