Hehe. I've been waiting a long dang time to get "my shop". Can't be happier having a place big enough for the camper, 2 ATVs, riding mower, 2 jet skis, a car, beergerator, and my roll-around toolbox.

Yes I do. I'm actually panning on doing a 12x20 concrete pad at both doors (shop is drive through) and then do gravel drive. One of these days I'll er around to it.

I used slag. Compacts nicely and no weeds will grow through it...and it's cheap

If you want it to drain, and also not throw stones during snow removal, you would want to slope the pad for drainage and top the surface with either asphalt concrete pavement or concrete. IMO.

around here we put down rock crusher reject and roll it then coat it with a by product of the paper mill. they use it for dust control. then after a few days when it dries, we roll it again it is just like concert.


I work at a paper mill here in Alabama. What by-product are you using?

Slag is the waste byproduct from smelting ore. We have a major steel manufacturer in town, so there is an abundance slag available here.
