lol that's the first thing everyone asks me ..

But the way I did it was we leveled the building approx. 12 or so inches above the ground then with a bobcat dug out the dirt we needed to actually level the floor. reason I did it was because my property is on an uneven slope and I wanted a concrete curve all around the floor going up to the bottom of the building. We could of done it differently but it worked out pretty good. Floor is 4" thick, posts are 4ft. into the ground with concrete and curve is approximately 6" high all the way around the shop floor.

Ok I gotta ask what size shop is that ? My slab was poured saturday and we are waiting for it to cure or whatever he called it. They are going to start today or tomorrow building it.


ITs gonna look simular to yours but with one large door for two cars and another which will only fit one car through the door way.
