    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Ron will you do a curbing for the walls like a garage or just put them on the flat slab?

    I just want to see videos and pictures, it would be interesting if you can set up a timelapse too. I am addicted to the gopros timelapse feature.

    Thanks for starting this one for me Dirty.

    The slab will be poured after the walls are up. It will have a treated 2×6 band around the bottom to pour to.

    I will take pics as it goes. But sorry no timelapse.

    That’s so awesome Ron..

    Are you getting a ‘kit’, or piecing it yourself?

    I have a 30×40, and really wish I had it insulated, but now it’s full and doing that now would be a huge job

    Piecing it myself. Saved a few dollars doing it this way.

    Cool thread Ron!. I will be following and probably asking a few questions on the way, if not just ingesting the info. What type of concrete are you using Ron?

    I’m curious as to what the advantage to doing it this way is. We always built our walls on the slab and tilted up.

    I think he’s doing it ‘pole barn’ style… Just set post 6-10′ apart and go. Many times they’re just pt post set in tamped dirt or gravel holes

    Shoot, I didn’t think there were any poles left that I would stick in the ground and expect to last forever.

    I don’t think we could do that out here, any longer, unless it was just a small shed.

    I was lost on this one too.

    Thanks for clearing that up TQ. That’s why I was confused because we can not put post in the ground here.

    Cool thread, Ron; What size did you decide to go?

    When I built my old shop I built it post and beam style. It was 24′ x 48′. I think that is maybe what Ron is doing?
    I started out like building a deck beam with 4 x 6 posts and then capped it. Then just framed the walls with 2 x 4 16 on center and trusses. It worked out great because then I could insulate and drywall, run wiring etc.

    Sweet topic. Is this a kit you bought or just a size you decided on Ron?
