I would be interested in knowing the specs for the concrete. PSI, rebar size and spacing, etc.

We will be building one later this year.

I'd love to share them with you but to be honest I have no clue other than 5" thick (6" under the hoist area), I've dealt with both the building & concrete company just over 30 years towing their equipment so I'm really working on blind faith with them.

My hesitation with the cold weather pour even being inside and heated is because I'm getting so many "helpful" hints/opinions my head is spinning, I just want a smooth as possible floor that will last a reasonable length of time before any significant cracks may appear. Preferably never appear.

The building company which deals mainly with commercial rather than residential buildings I feel has done an outstanding job to date and from my experiences with building trucks and equipment I've developed a habit of being very nit picky as to how I think things should be built.

If it's any help I went with 6" thick for the floor, footers are 2' wide 8" thick, and the walls are 36" tall 8" thick. All fiber reinforced, no rebar. Due to roof span of 52' I had 4 column bases pried 4' deep to support the steel roof support beams.

Garage goes up this spring.

Well here it is March already and we finally got a seasonable size snowfall but this should have been here last December. It's supposed to go up into the 40's tomorrow and for the rest of the week.

I guess any snow is better than none but it certainly has not been worth the expense of putting the building up so far this year

Thank you for asking, in all the years I've been up here this winter has been unusual to say the least not a hint of snow left up here not even in the shaded areas in the woods.

Progress has slowed a bit, the drywall is finished and ready to be sealed and painted this week then the drain and floor laid the week after that but we shall wait and see.

Just another quick update, since the weather forecast called for hail which we did get the bus was parked inside a week ahead of the 30 day waiting period and now that it's inside that's where it will sit for a few weeks to prep for a road trip.
