Might be a bit late with this suggestion but I had them slope the cement slightly towards the center where I had installed a drain. Sometimes the RV comes home wet or with snow/ice on the bottom. So now moisture (mostly) runs towards the drain.

Open to any and all suggestions, at the moment it looks like a single drain in the center of the floor but I'm looking hard at a heavy plastic 4" trench drain in the center of the floor 40' long. There will also be a bigger drain with a double floor grease trap in one corner with sheet metal lined walls for my steam cleaner location.

My shop/storage building is 40X44 and the drain is in the middle. I use a big rubber squeegee to move water when I think it is not going as fast as I want or in the direction I want. As well as the RV I keep a tractor, ATV's, riding mower, wood chipper, tools, BBQ's and a bunch of other "stuff" like my wifes Christmas decorations and old pots & pans that we'll never use in there. I tried to download a photo but this computer says the file is to large.

Evidently I posted what I thought I knew versus what I was told! It's just over 5' below grade with 8 course of block on one side and 3 or 4 on the other.

Rebar is in the footings and footings are supposed to be poured today however last nights weather forecast was for 3 to 10" of snow so I'll have to take a look in a bit to see if they actually poured.

How about a hydralic lift for oil changes, under carriage work, etc. It's always easy to suggest upgrades when using other peoples money. But sderiously, Very Nice, Very Nice Indeed.

I hope this one meets with your expectations because this is the one going in (10000lb capacity)

Ahhh. That's a familiar sight, John - construction with snow on it.

We had the same situation last year when they started our RV storage barn. They had just started the "red iron" setup when this happened



The building is 32' by 47' and that is the back rollup door, still in its packing crate sitting in the middle. The Town made us tear down our old pole barn before they would give us a final on the new one and you can see that I'm about 1/2 way through with that demolition in the background.

That was about a 12" snowfall, a lot for us in the Dallas area. It put us about 3 weeks behind until the ground dried up enough to finish the final grading and allowed me to get a COO.

When we built our garage/shop a couple of years ago, I wanted to put a couple of drains in for dripping cars. Instead the floor slopes toward the door a bit. One of these days I'll actually take everything out of the garage and hose it out. (Notice I didn't say just when.)
