    Lookin good. I like the gray skirt around the bottom, it does a nice job to break up the boxy apearance.

    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.
    Bulldog

    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 ?

    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.

    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.
