The work progresses on the remodel converting an oversized two-car garage into my new sewing room and workspace. Obstacles are never fun, but somehow we have to try to learn from them. Two problems crop up and the project is just getting underway.

you can always create a new floor that will be level - kind of like a sub-floor - to make the floor level. We did this same thing when we added a half bath in our basement. The floor had a minimum base (2x2) on the higher concrete floor with a bigger base on the lower concrete (2x4). Worked out great and the wooden 'new' floor was not nearly as cold as the concrete floor would have been.

Why not just leave it as it is and then at least when you drop anything you will know where it's going to roll to!

Could you pour more concrete (In the unlelvel spots)to level the floor????

Not unlike a problem that quilters might have once the top is all pieced! Easier to repair fabric faux pas, though.

No house is 100% square, even if it was when it was built. Settling always happens and contractors know how to deal with the issue - or should! The floor that is not level will have to be leveled when the subflooring is put in -another problem that the contractor ought to be familiar with, especially when converting an unfinished space, such as a garage, to living space.

Who poured the floor? I know it wasn't Mike ;-)
If you need some help just call him... Love ya!
