Here is a picture of the shop with the flooring installed.
Shop flooring

This is Pergo 7mm floating flooring over Delta-FL moisture barrier. With one person laying out the planks, one person cutting the end pieces to length, and two teams of two people installing the planks, the work took less than 3 hours. The Pergo just clicks together followed by a few taps with a dead blow hammer to tighten up the joints.

Now that is a shop to be proud of!!! I am now looking forward to seeing your shop with some cabinetry and tools in it. This is going to be a showplace.
