Hey John,

This is going to be awesome! Thank you for sharing the entire process, I am finding it very interesting.

I have a question. They were pouring the footers and it snowed? Will it cure properly, with those temps?

Sheila

Thank you I hope my shed measures up at least half way to yours and some of the others I've seen posted.

It seems all that's needed for the floor drain here is a drain field, it specifically can not drain into the sewage system. One drain in the center of the shop versus a 30' trench type drain because of creeper wheels and the amount of incline that would have been involved from the front to rear.

The weather is starting to be a concern at least to me, I think the footings will cure properly given the depth they are buried below level but it's a hope on my part since I don't know any better. The sand floor level you see now its going to end up being the actual floor until after this winter I don't have want it takes to chance pouring the floor this late in the season which is why the front block was left the height it was and filled over with the sand. It's been in the high 20's during the day and is supposed to start getting colder and the last 2 snow forecasts did not really turn out to be a few dustings.

A little progress, all the walls are made, some are up as well as the scaffolding. It was too dark when I got home this evening for updated pictures.

My new to me lights got here from California and looking at what would have been the tops of them they are not even dusty! 12 of them at 450 watts each.

Ditto. We got "the letter" from our HOA for having our coach parked on the driveway for a couple of days while we packed it for a trip.

Looking good John. My foundation and walls are poured should be pouring the floor this week. We are thinking about holding off on the building until spring. Wish mine as far along as yours is.

I had not really given any thought about insulating it this winter but now the new thought is why not do it as soon as the windows and door are in so we can heat it which would allow pouring the floor and put in some propane heaters for a couple of days. I missed the cut off date for when they quit installing new gas service lines so even when the ceiling heater is installed I won't have any gas.

I'm concerned about having a smooth floor when it's all said and done, but on the other hand maybe I can get out of town for a few weeks starting maybe in May rather than sitting around waiting for a floor to get poured.

We are going with heated garage as well to avoid winterizing, allows us to load up and go when the mood strikes.

Hi John, just came across this thread. Have a similar garage for my RV and my heating is radiant from floor, hot water piping. I ran about 9 250-300 foot runs to a manifold and my boiler is an outdoor wood furnace (heats home, attached double garage, detached RV garage and hot water). Have you considered radiant?? You could use a gas hot water boiler or a gas Hot water tank... One reason I really like my set-up is when I open doors the heat stays in as it's trapped in the slab, recovery is fast. With a forced air blower, when you open a door (especially the large one) all the heat goes out... Just an idea...

The idea has been played with a bit but for cost and and ease of the building procedure I'm lean towards one overhead gas heater.

My current work shop has 2 of the heaters and 3 16X14 doors and they are opened way more in a day than I expect this one to be opened in a month. I only heat to 45/50 and sometimes 60 when working for any length of time, this shop will be so well insulated compared to the current concrete block one that I don't think the overall seasons cost will be significant, now we'll just have to see what I think about that next year
