ok.. heres a quandary on a shop build
« on: February 06, 2017, 03:22:53 pm »
Hey all.
   I am coming back from a series of back injuries where i blew out 5 vertebre and had a severe injuries to both hips..

   Now getting past all the ouchs that u nice people will say.. i have a problem.
   I was getting close to finishing the floor on my shop build when this happened... but the floor and most framing wood have been un protected since May 2014.
   So, do i scrap the floor and repurchase all my lumber.. or can i use it?
   The floor( made of 3/4 untreated plywood) seems to be firm... but a couple of pieces have some upper "buckling"  or Seperation...
   Trust me... if it werent for the injuries.. this post and thread would be about a showplace success story...
    Any help is appreciated

Based on the information in your post, I suggest these priorities:
1.  Take care of your back
2.  Get the shop dried in
3.  Decide how many sheets of flooring need replacing
You may think that you can or may think you can't; either way, you are right.

Might help if you post some photos--not sure exactly what you mean.  Was the floor installed and exposed to traffic or weather or was the wood left outside and exposed and is waiting for installation?
