I know that feeling, we sold a rent house when we moved back to Indiana. That built ours.

Looks like a good start with the steel. Post pictures when finished if you would. How thick did they lay the slab? I have heard 4 inches from some and 6 inches recommended by others.

IMO 4" is not quite enough. I think 5" is a minimum and 6" is better. All depths should be on a well compacted granular base and reinforced with steel mesh.

Sounds like you did the right amount on the slab. It should last you for a very long time. I find the slab will cost a hefty penny in the figures. Thanks for the reply.

Bravo - If you're going to do it do it right.

I knew I shouldn't look into this thread. I can't stop drooling over these garages. We live in a MHP but we do have a paved (but uncovered) RV lot. The solar panels on the motorhome do keep the chassis and house batteries charged. All service work is by checkbook.
But no lawn to mow and water which is a big expense in SoCal. Lock the doors and go. Enjoy those beautiful garages.

I am planning to build a garage to house the motorhome and other toys... just wondering, how did you guys set up floor drains ( if you did) .. I thought it would be good incase I wanted to wash the coach inside
