Default Finally it's my turn! 50x60x12

Like my dad always says, first you start with a box.
So here we go...
40x60x12 main building
10' lean to off one side
Upstairs room 16x60x10
I've built this a hundred different ways in my head since we moved in in 2005, I just couldn't get over starting the project off with that giant kick in the crotch also referred to as concrete... it's the one part of the build I have no interest in doing myself.
Want to know what something cost or have questions about any of the build just ask.

I know there are hundreds of thousands of pole barns out there that have stood for decades, but I have issues with poles in the dirt... Well let's face it I have a variety of issues...
So here's what I did, 3' of concrete below grade (a footing plus 2' of 8" wall) and 2' above, then set a 10' tall 2x6 wall on top of a 2' above grade stem wall for a 12' ceiling.
So 5' of concrete total - footing plus 2' below and 2' above.
Not the cheapest route but I sleep really well at night knowing there's 2' of concrete between the wood and the dirt also really nice for hosing out the inside.

I was quite happy with the end result. Door openings were off, I think they measured from the inside of the wall and I was going off the outside, not a big deal.
3 openings
12W x 10H
9W x 8H
36" man door

I have a very unhealthy Mopar addiction... thankfully I have a very understanding wife.

1966 Charger
1968 Charger RT
1971 Challenger

And in what little spare time I have I work on John Troxell's "MoparCrazy" Nostalgia Funny Car.
Its an original funny car from 71, it was driven by Della Woods.
417 blown Donovan Hemi on alcohol.
Runs 7.60's in the 1/4 @ 180ish mph.
Currently tuned by Roland Leong.

I'm the tall one on the left, w/ Roland in front and John Troxell car owner in back.

130 tons of 3/4" to 1-1/4" rock brought in for the base.
I like steel... lots of it...
#4 rebar 16" centers on one half 12" centers on the other half.
I'll be putting a 2 post 10k lift on the 12" side.
Rebar up on 1.5" chairs
Slab will be 6" - 8" thick.

Very cool project. Also extremely cool that you help with a funny car tuned by Roland Leong! He's forgotten more about tuning nitro cars than most people will ever know.

Roland is THE MAN, period! He's an absolute, flat out trip to work for.
He could do even more for us if we'd run nitro but we're just not that smart enough yet. That and I don't think our original 1970 Logghe chassis would stand up to too many nitro passes. It's currently certified to 6.50 but we're starting to push the limits as it is.

The big pour!
I figured they would bring trucks back and either just chute it or possibly get a conveyor truck.
I was pretty surprised when they showed up w/ a pumper. He decided at the last minute to make it a little easier and quicker on his guys.
5 1/2 bag mix
1/2 bag fly ash
Buckeye fibers
Concrete was $106 yd the day we poured.
Footing, wall, slab 85 yards total.

Cutting the slab and old school full pond water cure.
My concrete guys said they had recently done a full pond water cure with the same set up and mix as mine then had it tested.
It went to 5600psi.

Yeah... I'm trying to remember, they all tend to run together by the end of the season.
I think we were in Indy about the 3rd week of September.
That's where we dead hooked, did a wheel stand and snapped off both wheelie bars, came down so hard turned a 1.750" solid front axle into a big smiley.
Roland had the motor set on kill, I think he was attempting to rotate the earth in the opposite direction.

Subscribed! Looking forward to watching this one. One day I would like to build a large shop and am looking for some good ideas and yours is a fresh build! Looking forward to watching all the progress.

Must be very exciting to get to work on hot rods with R. Leong! I love drag racing

2x6x10' walls, double top & bottom plates, 16" centers.
I framed the walls then using scaffolding we lifted the 10' wall on top of the 2' stem wall.
Built the walls in 10' to 14' sections.
Did the window and door headers after the walls were up.
