New shop

Post  STR-LGL-70 on March 15th 2012, 5:19 pm

What type of building? Red Iron/sheeted? Masonry?
What size footprint?
I've been wanting a larger building for awhile, looked into everything from a basic pole barn to masonry and everything in between. $#^% Concrete flooring is not cheap either!!

I sure hope you can put that ground back together after you broke it. Laughing Nothing like a nice big shop to work in, you'll love it. Morten makes some nice buildings. Cool

I put a bandaid on the ground. I wanted bigger. Originally county was only allowing me 1700sf. Had to get a variance for this one. Be glad when its done. All my tools are still at outer house

It's the labor concrete isn't too bad, fibermesh is money well spent.

35 yards??? That is alot of mud! Concrete can still be had for $100/yard up here but unions aren't as strong as they are in IL. I would make exactly double my union wage if I worked in IL.

3024 SF at 6 inches. Maybe it was lower. I think I heard 100 also. The material was a guy from work estimate. The 12,500 was a building company option. What do you do?

That will be an awesome garage! cheers I can't wait to see the pics, because I'm in the same boat here in Jersey. I won't find something with the garage I want, so I will get enough property to put the garage I can. Cool

Exactly pat. Looked for eight years. Although did find some that would have been cheaper in the long run. This way its not all at once. Bought house in October and will outfit shop over next few years.

i used to be concrete contractor then been driving a cement truck driver for last 6 years. I came up with 28 yards which would be $125/yard which isn't horrible. Does the other $9000 include digging footings and grading? If so then thats not too bad.

Oh, and don't let them use Calcium Chloride or High Early, a little P-20 will help give it a nice glass like finish without having to burn it in with a trowel machine. Burning the finish in accelerates how fast the top layer will pop and High Early and Calcium Chloride make the concrete brittle and never stop working. A high quality sealer is a must applied every couple years.

Wanted to epoxy it. Heard I have to wait thirty days before I do. I can't wait that long.

I love Morton buildings. They have a certain look to them that sets them apart from all the other pole barn builders out there and I really like them. They would definitely be my choice so congrats on the building.

One of my favorites.

That looks like recycled base material there, little more expensive than plain gravel but put a sprinkler on it for couple hours then level it with a roller and you have and excellent bed to pour concrete on.
