Since you sold the S2000, I'll only accept the Raptor. And you must leave the keys.

Your building is coming along very nice! We just got a quote for a 2600 sq ft building, stuff is pricy!

Seriously, once that thing is complete, I think I'd take a lawn chair, a 1lb block of cheese, a six pack of beer and just sit smack-dab in the center of it and bask in the glory of the structure.....all by myself. Beer in one hand, cheese in the other, just looking up at the ceiling and enjoying the glory of it all.

It's really that awesome.

I'll have to invite you down someday but it will be after I get lighting, flooring, and a lift in there.

Other than your gas for the mower and the bottles of 151, what is flammable?

I think you've inspired me to go clean the garage, park the vehicles outside and have a beer!

Well, my RZR model has a history of catching on fire, my boat smells like gasoline under the cover all the time, and my RV is 15 years old and has a bunch of propane appliances.

It does take a lot of man power on the day you pour especially if it is a big one like the OPs. The labor, and concrete can get expensive

The truck being backed in gives some scale to the size of this one, It is 50x25

Laying it down everyone is busy

I did the prep work on mine and removed about 18” of top soil, brought in a GSB material that has 95 percent compaction The backhoe is mine



Just waiting for it to set up enough to make a final pass on it. Cost me 4,000 not counting the prep work I did. 1250 SF 4” thick
we had previously done the poles ourselves, and fabricated the steel trusses in our shop with two of my sons.
Once the concrete was poured we enclosed it.

Construction guy says the doors don't fit. He says the roof perlins interfere with rolled up door. Interesting. We'll see how this plays out when Mueller is contacted about this tomorrow.

That sucks, I couldn't quite get a 12' door in my addition because the first truss is only 10' back (they are all spaced every 10') so the door would only lift 10' and hit the truss, and I really needed a 12' opening the get my motorhome and backhoe in there so I built barn doors which are not ideal, but got the thing closed up for now, and were a fraction of the cost of a roll up door.

If you see what I mean. Somehow they have to get behind that steel panel to get the tape in there. Maybe that's no big deal but I would have expected to see the insulation up well in advance of the steel.

Whatever they're doing looks fine in all the other pics cuz there's no openings in it anywhere.
The insulation is stretched tight from bottom to top and has an overlap on each side, no tape needed. The "r panels" secure the insulation.
