I have a 12' x 25' patio in the back of my house that is poured concrete (about 4" or so). Is that enough of a foundation to put a roof over it to connect it to the back of my garage and turn it into a wood shop? I need a place where I can leave a mess when I'm working. Right now I have to back the cars out of the 2 car garage so they don't get covered with sawdust, then make sure i have enough time to sweep up when I'm done working that day. Makes it tougher during winter. I was thinking if I enclosed the patio behind the garage I might be able to make a nice space that I can put my power tools in and have heat there too in the winter. Would the 4" concrete slab heave up at all in the extreme cold here in PA? Not sure if it would be possible to tie into the roof if that's the case.
