    I'm going to do this but had a keschin. I have no way to clear out the floor completely. Will that epoxy/sealer be fucked up if I don't keep a wet-edge on it??? You know what I mean??? Is it ok to stop and leave a defined edge that will dry and then continue later or does it need to be done all at once???

    You will be able to see it certainly, but it all depends on the epoxy, thickness, etc. Is there any way you can lift the front edge of something? Prop up some furniture/appliance so you can at least coat a few inches under it so the edge would be hidden?

    No way, it's about 2500 sqft and there is a ton of shit down there. Will it chip or anything where that transition is??? I have zero experience with this stuff and you mentioned you've done it before.

    Also, Whitecap said they have some water based stuff that is less volatile. You ever try that???

    Well, I designed/built this place and have >2500 wide open space down there with minimal supports and 10' ceilings. I don't really want to "finish" it cause the kids like to go insane down there but I have to do something to the bare concrete floor. It's dirty/dusty and needs to be sealed.

    I'm loving the ten foot ceilings in a basement...however, I'm more drawn to the architectural nature of homes built before 1960.

    I have worked on jobs where they are doing them. It's not that hard honestly.
