Thanks Clem,

My concrete guy has an engineer in his pocket and so far I like what he is doing. I'm not up to pouring this big of a slab. It's the garage slab, the driveway slab and the culvert slab. I had another engineer who was telling me like a 20 inch thick slab and that is when I found this guy. 6 inch with footers, 5000 psi concrete. lots of rebar and lots of rebar under the wheel tracks and under the jacks. They are digging down about a foot and compacting gravel . I know a few WOG folks told me to do that and here we are. Waiting on the dump truck now. Then once all that is done, I can get the steel building folks in later this month or early next. I maxed out their size so I have a 45 by 18 garage 16 feet high. The garage door is about 12 wide by 14 high. The concrete crew is going to start in earnest next week.
