Just curious, how do you avoid hitting a radiant line if you need to bolt down any machinery?

You make sure you don't drill any deeper then 5"


You guys sure build them differently in you're part of the country. Here we start with the slab then build on top of it. Why are you doing wheel barrow vs pumping it in? Yes I know there is a cost associated with that but by time you pay all the laborers wouldn't it be pretty close?? Pumping would only require the pump operator, 2 people to screed and 1 for moving any extra material around. Do you plan to ever put in a vehicle hoist?? If so that area would benefit from a footer that 12" thick where the stands of the hoist would mount.

So the building is 64' in length how wide?? Lucky for me we don't need radiant heat in the floor as we never get that cold. I'm just curious what you're finished cost will be?
I'm fortunate enough that I still have the ambition and ability to do the construction from start to finish. Of course I still pay for laborers to get the concrete on the ground then I do the finish work.

You're shop is going to be awesome. My wife has admitted that she is now a garage widow due to the time I spend in my shop.


The labor is the cheap part. It's already paid for because it's mostly friends that I made sure to be available for over the last couple years. Helped guys move several times and whatnot. One kid I'm going to pay $50. He's the new young guy at work. Hoping to be done wheeling by 10:30-11:00am (starting at 7:30).

Building is 64x48

Not 100% sure on finished cost yet. Somewhere around $115k most likely. Maybe more when I finally put in the bathroom (full shower and everything) and the bar.

No reasonable excuse for what I am about to do.

Your cost estimate is way low... By the time you factor in the Alcohol, steaks, and other sundries for the "after it's done" party...

Yes on the going into business in the next couple years (probably). But this is all for me. Would never give employees access to this building after all the work I've done

That's why you don't give her a key
