Looking really good. Are you still going to have access to the smaller garage in the back ?

Garage is looking good Phil, bet you can't wait to fill it.
They do allow garage pads to be pored on grade here and we have nasty cold winters with warm spells and refreezing but they don't seem to move around to much. If the garage is over 24 X 24 then it must use footing below grade of 1 meter.

Yes, no problem. That's "miss garage"

This is a different way of building, around here it is footings first, floor second and then they build the walls on the flat and level floor. Anyway, I bet today was a wet day or did you get lucky and dry?

Today was dry. Just start raining.

My concrete contractor want to pour the floor after the building is built. He say it's more trouble for him but it seems it does a better job as the concrete doesn't dry as quickly so it's doesn't crack.

1st Heated floors, then cabinets and work bench, then hooks and whatever your heart desires...in whichever order you wish. Oh don't forget to save room for the beer frig!

With our Canadian climate it's either heated floors or no heat at all. Part time heat does more harm than good.

Best I could do is paving over the road base so I don`t have to roll around on gravel anymore.

Still having computer issues and I'm not able to do much on this tablet. My wife wants to have our old computer fixed, because she isn't sure what is on it that she wants to keep. Me, I say toss it and start from scratch.
