On Step Closer to the New Garage

Got the pad, foundation and walls poured last year.

The new driveway is going in now, first 4 pours complete, close to half of the old asphalt ripped out.

Went with 6" thick fiber reinforced concrete, except where there columns in the garage go, there we poured 2' diameter, 4' thick repays to support the steel columns that will support the roof. Garage will 49' x 53' with out any interior walls. So we need the columns to carry the weight of the roof.

No matter how fast it goes it always seems slow. I look forward to seeing more of your progress.

That is so cool, you are even going to have sewer hookup in garage. Won't that smell?

Headed to CA for 3 months so I will have to count on the DW to keep sending me pictures.

I think I will mis the asphalt when the snow comes, seems that the blacktop driveways melt the snow away quicker. The asphalt just wouldn't support the weight of the RV on hot summer days, even with pads under the jacks it would leave some depression. I imagine with out pad I could drive the jacks all the way through the asphalt.

You would know for sure, I watched the progress of your garage this past winter. Mine will not be as big as the palace you built. Mine will hold our 2 cars and the MH with slides out.

The big upside for me is; I get to turn the existing garage in to a work shop and never again will I have to winterize the MH because of Ohio winters.

Hope mine comes out as nice as yours did..

Cement contractors are like any other contractor, you have to go through a couple bad ones before you find a good one. Really like the guys I have now. THis is not their first job for me.

We will also be starting one along with a new house in a couple of months. I am thinking of putting a drain in the center. I haven't noticed one in any of the pics I have seen of those you all are building. Any particular reason why you don't have one?

I am thinking about coming in from a trip with a wet motorhome, having to hose down a spill, etc.
