I am not sure how long it took to cure but we left the pad alone for almost a month (trusses were back ordered). The reason we went overboard on the concrete because the soil was questionable. It turned out almost 18 k over budget with overkill rebar, fiber mesh, Geogrid, and perimeter drainage.
I just didn't want issues with the structure.

Not sure if this was directed at me, but I have about $12K in materials and labor. That doesn't include the pad which I built a year earlier. I was my own contractor.
Here are some photos of the construction. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ibp8hs2so...V%20Car%20Port

Well, I will be joining the RV home group soon. Slab will be poured next week, building ordered today, 4-6 weeks out for that. so hopefully by mid June sometime I should have a home to park the coach in. Eventually I will have water/sewar and elect also in the building.
I am going with a Mueller building, 18x60 with a 14x14 roll up door, 16' sidewalls and a 1/12 pitch roof.

Mueller is where I got mine. They have a store about 5 mi up the road from me. I couldn't be happier with the way it went together. Getting the anchor bolts square is probably the single most important preparation for the building. I was sweating bullets over it. I measured and cross measured from every corner about 20 times before pouring concrete. It paid off big time when we went up with the red iron and we barely even had to use a line-up tool to get the bolt holes aligned.

Unfortunately I don't have the means or the friends to erect mine myself. So it is all being hired out. I will leave the bolt squaring to those that square bolts in concrete for a living...lol And then HOPE they did a good job so the building guys don't have to re-work it.

My shop is a Mueller building and I like it alot, pretty quality and heavy building. I did have to go 16'6" on the rv garage thought to have room for the roll can for the 14' door. Looking forward to getting it all done.

Coach sits on one side and takes up about 1/3 the space, rest is used for trailer, tractor, pickup, lawn mowers etc. Harley sits in the house garage along with wood working and mechanical/welding tools.
Can never make them big enough.
I wish I made mine wider as well....tight squeeze getting in.

I built my place last year and had 3 empty bays and thought it would sit empty for ever....not even a full year later I wish I built the MH bay 3' wider and now my boat has to sit outside cause its full!! Always build bigger than you anticipate, as someone stated earlier, the extra materials and labor costs really are quite minute. Good lUck

Can't do pictures, but I built ours about 8 years ago. 28x48 with 16'6" ceiling, 14x14 door. 8" concrete floor with fiber mesh and mesh rebar, Frame built and insulated, have all hookups, water, power, sewer and satellite within ten ft of coach hookup. Also have the gutter extentions on front of coach so if run AC inside of building, can sat 5 gal buckets under each side to catch water. Good to be able to back in and drain tanks when you get home. Built ours myself with a little help from friends and family, so kelp it under 20k.
