I would make 6" and trowel contraction joints every 12-15 feet. Concrete will crack, it's about controlling where it does. Placing it in 2 pours would be best in a
checkered pattern.
Planning on putting a gravel layer down as a vapor barrier too?

This is one step that I will have hired out. I am sure whoever I go with make sure they have everything that is usually required for this area.

I was thinking smaller but yes, countersunk bolts around the bowtie... OR...

Have about 2x6 area pan about 1/8 inch deep in the floor, paint this in the pan and fill it level with clear epoxy.



...err maybe not... epoxy would get scratched up and dull

It's looking good...... I was looking at your fire ring it looks like someone worked on a pipeline......
We're just finishing up survey work for a 36" pipeline that was just installed and there are quite a few of those lying around here......

Gilmour! You made it back over to to the original forum!
Yep, you can hide Gtahvit's garage in there.

But....I think yours would fit really nicely in mine by about the same margin.

Cool build Buddy!
