Getting back into welding after not doing much for decades. Have an old barn, and was going to convert 4 of the stalls into a welding shop. Barn has all wood walls. Part of the floors are thick oak boards, part dirt/concrete.
Was wondering what people suggest for fireproofing the area. Going to be doing mig, plasma cutting/ oxy/acetylene, and am worried about the sparks flying.
Should I rip up the wood floor and try to pour some sort of concrete slab? Should I cover the walls with something like cement board they use behind bathroom tiles? Some other covering comonly used? How high up the walls do you have to go?
