Ok, just bought my first house (which pushed me buying an elise back by 5 or 6 months or so ). I did end up with a 3 car garage which is something I looked for and couldn't deal without in buying my first house. Our house used to be the model house for the neighborhood which actually I have found has some great benefits. The garage is routed with a/c and heat ducts (which are currently blocked off, but if I ever wanted to use them I just need to unblock the ducts, sweet a garage with a/c! :nanner. They added quite a few lights over the 2 car portion of the garage and I also have a hookup for an outdoor garage sink (which you can see in the picture) which is nice so you can clean up before going in the house. On to my question, the 2 car portion of the garage floor is painted from it being the "office" when it was the model home. I would like to have the floor done with epoxy and the speckles like alot of people do on here. What all will have to be done with that side of the garage to prep it for the new coat? Will the paint have to be stripped/removed? Here is a picture of my garage while they were doing the termite inspection.
