      sorry if I sound like a smart *** I was just wondering if you were doing concrete. When I use to live in Colorado they would always concrete there garage after the house was built I didn't understand that. Here in the south they pour the entire slab then build the house. Can anyone tell me why? Thanks,

        i think it has to do with the styl of building involved, his is a barn style so it dose not need a floor to stand he can do that later. it also keeps weather from efecting the poor and cure time. slab types also have a determining factor. but as a barn or post type building you do not ancure to the slab but rather sink the poles, it alows for the use of less concreat in the slab process. also some slabs are designed to float on top of the earth wile others are ancored in with footings, a tention slab for instance is pored with high tention cables layed threw the slab and after it dries the wires are pulled tight with a hydrolic puller then clamped in place and cut off, this is a good example of a floating slab, in essence you can lift the slab and house right up and drag it away as the tention wires keep the slab from bending and snaping with shifting soile, i have seen some with hole sides of the house floating. due to water erosion.
        it realy all comes down to the design you chose, be it for soil reasons or financhal ones. kind of like the slab V/S basement, its up to you and then the builder to put in what you want.
        that was probly more info than you were looking for hu.
        thanks for the help
        ......or..........
        hope i helped

          no thats cool fun4now thanks for explaining that to me. I have always been curious of this. I was thinking well the place i had lived in the summer was only like 3 months long so I would hear stories like they would build the entire outside of the house first then for the winter they would build all of the inside the house because of all the snow fall. I wasn't sure if maybe they had problems with the concrete curing because it was so cold or what. Thanks

            when i was building in florida we used to keep atleast 2 houses usualy 3 going at all times so we had a roof on 1 at all times to give us plenty of work if it rained for a few days, keeping in mind a house rarely took over a week for a standerd track home you had to keep your options open, in AZ. rain was not a problem as it came in like clock work at 3PM so we were winding up any way.
            there realy are a number of diferent varieables to dictate the scedualing of the construction, but bulldog would have to be the one to tell you exactly why he did his this way, but with a post building it would be hard to pore the slab then try to dig in the post right beside the slab so i believe all post style get the floor added in after the post but you could put it in right after the post were sunk if you needed.

                Don't forget a porch swing on one end of that covered patio!

                It's a great place for your morning coffee and a cold beer in the afternoon.

                  Nice shop Bulldog.
                  As the building gets heavier with sideing and roof material and such, there may be some settleing by the time its done and that would be a big advantage to pouring concreat last. I would still use expansion joints around the perimiter as well as between the slabs incase there is more settleing. I'm no concreat guy though but thats what I would do if I were unable to get profesional advice.
                  Are you going to concreat the porch also ?

                    Hey Guys,
                    Sorry I haven't gotten back to this thread sooner. I wanted to update ya, but have been buried (still) with work. I'll try to take some pics tomorrow.
                    Burnindaylight,
                    The floor in the main shop is 30X50. The ceiling is 12' high.The porch is 10X50. It's not a big shop, but it's a lot bigger than my 24X24 garage that I'm in now. Also the front part of the porch is going to be turned into the company office and the last 20' will be the bathroom. I won't get to the porch modifications until spring, but at least I'll have more room soon.
                    See ya guys and thanks for the interest.
