Getting ready to pour a pole barn slab Monday. Also going to add a lift. Did you just dig out the area where your lift was going to go and let the slab just be a little thicker in that area with no special treatment (rebar or such)?
Yes I dug out where my lift was gonna be and made a wooden form so I could insulate it. If you are not doing heated floors then no form is necessary, my floor is 4 inches thick which is what most lifts require, but where my lift is located it’s about 8 inches thick.
And make sure you measure and mark on ur baseboard where the thick concrete is for ur lift if not ya gotta guess, I done heated floors so I made a jig outta 4x4’s and done measurements and I’m damn glad I did, it made drilling my holes easier knowing where my pex was

I did a 4'x4' spot where each leg will set, 8 inches deep, the rest of the slab is only 4 inches

I just finished the tin on my ceiling this weekend and doing the blow in insulation in about 3 weeks and couldn’t come at a better time. December electric Bill was 267. I’m hoping to cut that in half once the insulation is done

Well I waited years for this and pulled the trigger last year to build my dream garage at the ripe age of 66 I am happy I didn’t wait longer. Mine is 60’ deep and 80’ wide with 16’ by 30’ wrap around porch. 18’ ceiling and 8” think floors, 24’ concrete approach aprons and a 12’ sidewalk on the right and rear. R19 insulated walks and R50 ceilings, AC and heat. I’m not quite finished as of yet, still waiting for my 14’ high by 16’ wide bay doors and my windows. It is plumbed for a full bathroom, a kitchen, and a loft above that area. The interior has a white full metal liner on the walls and ceiling. A 400 amp electric service is scheduled if my utility company ever decides to get it done. I have a lot of plans for the work area layout but none of that is completed and won’t be until I have power, water, and doors.

Does anyone have a good reference for building one here in the Birmingham Alabama area? I'm looking to build a 40'x50' for boat storage and need some ideas as well.

Can we bring this back from the dead? Finally building my dream home or as close as I can get to it with a wife and kid. House is 36x61 10 and a half foot wide porches front and rear that run the length of the house. 12 foot breezeway between the shop and the house that runs front to the back. Shop is a 40x46 with a 10 foot apron. 14 foor walls in the shop and 12x12 doors. 2 inline so I can pull straight thru. The one on the right side is gonna be inline for the lift. Shop and house spray foamed. Shop has AC.

I have a little bit of insulation (2" inch foam boards with foil backing on both sides) left to do but I am mostly done with everything. 24x55x12 building and the concrete pad is 4000 psi fibercrete and 5-6 inches everywhere except where the lit is and it is 8-19 inches.

I am getting ready to build a shop at my house and I have noticed a few others on the board are also. I havent seen one of these threads. Post up pics, sizes, and tips or things you would do different if you could start over.
I broke ground on my new shop in summer of 2020, it is 80’ and 60’ foot deep with 18’ ceiling height, 3 overhead doors 14’ high by 16’ wide, 3 man doors, and 6 windows. Currently I am in the process of finishing the recreation room, kitchen, and bath. Which is two story, first floor is kitchen and bath (17’x 32’) and the second floor is recreational room/TV room (17’x 60’). The depth and ceiling height is so I can conveniently park my motorhome inside and maintain it. To detailed to fully explain without seeing it. I have a wrap around porch on the left front corner going 16’ across the front and 30’ down the left side and extending 16’ out from the building.
