    We're having a 28 x 36 garage built so the tractor and other things will be inside. The boat will get brought out of our attached garage to the new garage once things are done.

    We went with a haunched foundation with a metal roof with siding on it, the next pictures will be after they pour the foundation.

    Here is hoping they are using gravel, vapor barrier and footings and not sand.

    That's how our garage slab floor base was built. They used fiber-reinforced concrete instead of rebar. I was a little skeptical, but It has stood up well.

    I was speaking to the lack of gravel for drainage. Sand soaks up water like a sponge and holds it.

    Yes, understood. Our garage floor had a compacted gravel bed, membrane, then sand if I recall correctly. With the large overhangs there is little chance of it getting wet. There has been no sign of dampness on the floor so far.

    I'm not sure what type of sand you have but the sand here doesn't hold water, when they built our house they never put in a sump pump because the sand here doesn't hold water.

    We been here almost 17 years and never had a problem in the basement with water. We've had a month years back we received so much rain it took out five bridges in our town and our basement was dry.

    Sounds like our property. The water goes straight down. Good for perk but expensive for garden watering.

    Are you having a foundation put it or are they doing a slab, with a pole barn type building built? The fiber is a nice addition really increase the strength of the concrete. How thick of a floor are you going to have poured?

    Some sand has a certain amount of clay in it, the stuff the contractor used had some but it's the same stuff that's on our property starting about two feet down.

    He's from this area so he's use to building on this type of soil. They have about 30 minutes of work left and it's ready for cement.

    Once we get the tractor back from its 500 hour checkup (almost 600 on it) I'll be doing some work with the loader.

    How have things been going for you and your family?

    From the edge of the form in 24 inches and 12 inches down (haunched foundation or slab on grade in the link. I think it's 4 or 5 inches thick once you get to 25 inches in from the edge of the form.

    Over the sand you have foam insulation with a vapor barrier on top of the foam with wire mesh and rebar in the thickest part. The slab will be poured all at one time.

    Around here, we used to call them monolithic slabs, where the footer, foundation and slab are all one pour.

    Makes sense, we’re pretty close. But it’s soda, not pop, in our neighborhood. And hoagies aren’t subs or heroes, they’re just hoagies.

    Its soda here also. But not to much further west it turns into pop. As far as sub vs hoagie either goes here. When i lived in philly there were some of each as well. And a couple places were really insistent about the terminology.

    The pouring of the garage floor or slab went good this morning, it took less than an hour to finish the pour. The first truck was able to do the pour from the east & west sides of the garage, the second truck finished the pour from the front.

    After they finished pouring the sun came out and we had some winds all day, the owner finished off the pad earlier and is gone for the day.

    Everything except for the metal roof was delivered so they can get going on finishing the garage. :)

    I'll have some pictures later.

    The walls are up and they're putting up the garage door header, I'll have pictures after they call it a day.

    Looks good, will be pretty nice when it's all finished. Keeping your stuff under roof and out of the weather is easier on everything including yourself!

    I'm thinking the roof trusses go up tomorrow, Wednesday we might get half an inch of rain. It sure will be nice to have the tractor inside instead of covering it when we have rain or snow. The fluid check will be easier to do, the tractor is parked on a small slope so when I want to check the fluids, I move it to some flat ground which means I have to wait about 35 - 40 minutes for the engine oil to settle before an accurate reading.

    It won't take long to fill the new garage up, most of the back wall will be a work bench and shelves for storage.
