Dave, when my dad sold his gas station in 1981, he sold only the property, building with furnace. We moved everything out, frame hoist, drive on hoist, tire changer, work benches, etc. He put a divider wall in the barn at home, pole barn construction building, it had a junk partial concrete floor from an old building we removed and built over the pad. Anyway, we put in insulation, then covered with the same type of metal that was on the outside, then poured the floor. Right up to and against the metal wall. Problem solved of a stray spark getting under/around the corrugation. I am planning on building within two years (get the second wedding completed this fall for this year! ) then I can start saving money and stuff for that project. I plan on doing a lot of welding, cutting, forge work, so this is how I plan on doing my wall also for fire protection. So for an existing situation, run the metal to the floor, then maybe just pour a lip or a curb so it is fireproof. I know drywall is firerated, but man, a lot of drywalled houses burn every day.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
