Latest video:
Got tired of the uneven old concrete floor in the machine shop / motorcycle garage and gave it the wrath of the electric jack hammer. The jack hammer won. I remember more than a decade ago these tools were very robust and got on your hands quite a bit. This new piece of equipment I rented was soft on hands and I couldn't feel any vibration at all. I used my trusty 2002 Honda TRX500FA Foreman Rubicon and ATV timber trailer with the homemade crane system and 12 volt winch powered dump box on it to haul the old concrete out and gravel in for leveling out the base for the foam board, plastic, rebar and liquid floor heating tubing in the workshop / machine shop. I also fabricated and replaced one of the remaining old and rotten load bearing posts in the shop. The workshop is taking shape now and it's quite an improvement over the old one. My father did all of the electric stuff - you can now stick a nail into the outlet, basically touch one of the phases one at a time, and you can't get electrocuted. At least that's how I remember the concept. But I'm a dummy when it comes to electricity - take this information with a grain of salt. Basically the main fuse box was replaced and rebuilt to modern EU standards and also a dedicated fuse box for the workshop was added. This is a video in a series of many, please comment, like, subscribe and come back for more because there's more to come! Thanks for watching!

What are you using for the heat source in the floor ? A boiler unit ? electric , natural gas , propane ? Just wondering how it works and how much it costs to heat ? I could not find the video on that part ?

No wonder your band saw mill isn't going to get painted any time soon, you're working too hard! Take it easy sir your back is very important, if you can use heavy machinery for back-breaking jobs. Do whatever it takes not to burn your body, avoid injury too.

The video reminds me of the renovation of my kitchen. There I had to work on the floor with a demolition hammer. Sometimes there was so much cement in the concrete that the demolition hammer had a hard time. But today the kitchen is for it again already and hits also an underfloor heating.

У меня есть два кота - Барсик и Феникс. Когда они сыры - они ложатся на травке и, от нехерделать, лижут себе яйца... В начале видео я думал, что готовят гараж под КАМАЗ или что- либо по тяжелее... А реалии оказались совсем не ожидаемых... "Чужая душа - Потёмкин!"....

You need to build a rock crusher and crush the concrete into small pieces that can be used as fill material on roads or paths. It can also be used for large rocks, bricks and such that way you won't have piles of unusable rubble.

I love your videos. SO as a 50 year old that has done lots of manuel labor let me throw some tips out there. That short handle shovel is going to make you old fast. I would get a longer handle on it. Gives you more leverage and more leg action then back action shoveling all that dirt. Also I would have used a board and run it across at correct floor height and had it sit on the concrete on one side and then a 2x4 leg on the other. Then just dump the dirt in front of the board and move it as you go. Nice easy way to move dirt and have it look good. You make my bones hurt just watching all that young mans energy. Keep up the great work.
Donn DIY
Donn DIY Aasta tagasi
Yup, all true. I guess all the shovel handles are made by some standards I don't understand. The board trick is neat. Will use that in the future. Thanks for watching!

I'm wondering why you didn't break the old floor down and use it as fill in deeper areas?
Donn DIY
Donn DIY Aasta tagasi
Too big chunks of concrete to level it out properly. I did leave some of the concrete in there on the lower area.

Looks like you can see pretty good in there now! Watching the light move across the floor at 14:30 and onward, you were going at it! I tell you what, this is all an investment in the future, so its a good thing. But dang.. what a project to tackle mostly on your own. I've done the same, get neck deep in a project, and you work on it so much, & its so hard, that you get to a point mentally (if you keep pushing yourself) where its like "Dang I'm sick of looking at this area"... that's why its good to take breaks. (I learned this the hard way)
Donn DIY

You're right. I've had projects like that. One of them is the sauna house, I still have the washing room to complete but don't really get around to finish it for some reason. Breaks on the other hand I've had a lot. :D

For two reasons, two thumbs down. Reason 1. The sound of the concrete breaker does not sync up with the video. Clearly there are some CGI shenanigans going on here. Reason 2. None of the electrical work will pass inspection as none of the materials used are Canadian Standards Association or Underwriters Laboratory's approved. For shame! And just in case it's not obvious, I'm totally just kidding. Nice work there guys.
Who says that you can't have fun while working?😊👍

@Donn DIY Ah yes, I did mean OSB. Personally I would really recommend taking the time to paint everything white while it's all clean. You can't have too much light in a shop.
Donn DIY

If you meant the OSB then according to the current plan I'm not going to paint the OSB walls. I will paint the stone walls white on the other hand.

Hi Donn, I am never tired of watching you work as you know very well how to do anything coming your way. I don’t claim to know much about laying a floor in a barn but may I suggest you lay some kind of membrane to reduce or eliminate humidity from the concrete. I know that it may be an extra cost but I think it's worth laying it. Maybe it has already crossed your mind but I suggested it just the same. Good job and take care.
Donn DIY

The floor will have foam and plastic underneath. The plastic should keep the moisture away.

It's a good thing that you and your brother grew up on a farm. Most people don't have the time or stamina for manual labor.

That helps indeed. Manual labor is mostly done due to necessity in farm. And stamina develops by itself.

I could have poured pure concrete over the old floor but... I wanted to insulate it from underneath and add heating tubing. And that wasn't possible without pulling out the old floor. More will come.

Bet you slept well that night. Thin concrete like that works you to death. No time to just let the thing hammer away and rest for a while. Always lifting and prying. Never liked working on such thin slabs. Good video brings back memories.

Yup, that's what happened. At least there was less material to haul out with the thinner sheet of old concrete.
