These guys were out of Ohio and will travel to build pretty much any where from NC to NJ on the east coast and the mid west.

Way too much clay going on.
Looks like a nice building. Same soil as we have around here, by the looks.

From our current project;

my dream shop

Ok, I'll jump in...here are a few early photos of my shop. I had to move 1000 miles out of California to afford it, but it was worth it. I assembled the Miracle Steel building by myself in 11 days after the concrete was pored. I thought the site prep would be easy because it was flat, but it took 300 tons of rock to get a decent bed for the slab. The soil is a bit moist.

By yourself? Impressive. How did you find Miracle Steel as far as quality and customer service?

Nice looking place.

Good eye RoyB. I specifically chose the Miracle Steel because it looked like it wold be doable by just me and the forklift. I thought the quality was fine and they were always helpful.

Radiant heat..........Hot water will be circulated through those tubes, heating the concrete slab, creating extremely even heat. Once the floor heats up it creates a "trombe" and will hold this heat for a long period of time. Opening and closing the garage doors will not lose the built up heat like a hot air system would. This is easily the best way to heat any type of living space, but even more so in a garage.

Yep, what Roy said. I put down 2500 feet of pex so that someday I can afford to heat the place. I will probably have to sell either the bike or the mog to afford that tthough. I do recognize the irony of having 2500 square feet of shop space and having to sell all (not really all) of the cool stuff to pay for it. I'm pretty sure that is some kind of karmic law, "Wife's karmic law of toys".

Wow! nice shop for sure. I wish I could afford something like that. But at least I was able to build a small shop last year that is all mine. I gave the wife the garage. My shop ain't much but at least I now have an insulated & heated/air conditioned space to work on my bike & other projects. Before, in the summer time while wrenching on the bike, within 5 minutes i'd have sweat running into my eyes.

The clay has dried out pretty good so I was able to start working the grade in the garage. I will lay gravel and 4-5" of 3000-4000 psi concrete. I am going to use wire mesh or a combination of wire and rebar.

Badger- since the slab is heated it must be insulated to at least R-10. Rock, sand, vapor barrier, foam, wire, rebar, pex, concrete.
