Power hooked back up. Spoken to the guys about 3ph for the property looks like 240v will be the easiest.

Hung the door frames, added some braces, and moving dirt for the ramp needed to access the building. Hoping to pour this weekend. Going to add a little side walk from the ramp to the walk through door being the area will be nothing but dirt for the next few years. 20Ē difference in elevation from existing driveway to the shop slab. This ramp is temporary permanent.

Packing the dirt with my 12v. Everyone should have a 12v around.

Formed up and ready to pour this morning. Hope my help shows up on opening morning of deer season.
Drilled and hammered rebar into my shop slab so the two donít separate as bad. Tied everything together.

Epoxy for joining the two slabs or adhering the rebar into the exising slab? I drive 3/8" rebar into 3/8" holes. Fitment was tight.

Somewhere around 10*. Had the concrete mixed at a 4 slump, which was plenty thick. It worked well.

West wall completed by lunch time. Spent the rest of the day figuring out best method for installing the roof, and pre drilling all roof panels. Measure twice, drill once

I hate building up a barn pad. Every one we've ever built up starts sinking about 10 years in.

Your fill looks different than just fill dirt?

Pad and building look great, though!

Itís called select fill. Heavy on the clay content with sand mixed in. This is what everyone told me to use instead of bank sand. Select full dirt will hold form if it decides to rain once beams are dug. With it did rain and they held form. I packed the clay as much as I could with the skid steer I had on hand at the time. Packed more with the tractor, then about 4,000 lbs on the bed of my dually to pack even more. The 4 corners of my beams reach original grade.

I did what seemed logical. Hope it holds.

We fitted, trimmed , and screwed the metal on each end wall. Then removed two sheets at a time to hang insulation. It worked pretty good, and made the trimming much easier. Took half a day for one end wall.

Scored a pallet of Bermuda grass with a little st Augustine on top for $40. Was able to lay grass around the entire building and keep erosion to a minimum. Next is to order doors. Roll ups are so dang expensive.
