Quinster is a jewel in the roughQuinster is a jewel in the roughQuinster is a jewel in the rough
I guess one more year without a quad....

....but I will have a shop to keep it in when the time comes....










The pad is 30 X 45 with a 16" X 16" thickened edge, 1 1/2" foam under, on the sides of and 4' past the pad, 10" of compacted 3/4 down. In floor heat is also being installed.

The shop is going to be 30 X 45 with 16' ceilings and a 16'W x 14'T O.H.D. Steel inside and out.

70 yards of 3/4 down and lots of packing later...













The area we were digging is an old farm road, the first 6" was as hard as a rock, both skid steers had issues with breaking the surface, when they did, it peeled off like asphalt. Even the soil where we dug down for the 16 X 16 thickened edge was rock hard.

Foam, vapor barrier and re bar done, re bar is 10mm in the floor, 10mm stirrups and 20mm in the thickened edge.

Floor re bar is 18" on center, doubled where the hoist areas are, and stirrups are 24" apart...





PEX was installed Oct 29th as well as inspection! Passed with flying colors, poured Monday Nov.1st...



better shot to show where the hoist will be installed;



PEX is ~ 12" between lines, 3 zones, one for every 15' of floor. It was pressure tested, all lines are run to a common "bulkhead" which is hooked to a pressure gauge and the system was pressured to 50 psi, regular running pressure is < 15 psi, the higher pressure is just to ensure there is no leaks.



The pressure was left in the lines during the pour so you can see right away if anything is cut or pierced while the concrete is going in. With the higher pressure bubbles will be very obvious so a repair can be done right away.

Let the pouring begin....27.5 cubic meters later....





smoooooth



Forms removed, back filling complete....the build is slated to start Nov 25th....

what is the size of your infloor pipe? 3 zones seems to little for your size. half inch usually no more than 250sq.ft...or a run of no more than 400ft for 3 zones....300 for 4 zones.....but urs looks like 3/4?

I did mine few weeks ago...infloor...cant wait to hook up the heat...just doing roof now....going to spray foam the underside of the roof and have exposed rafters for more storage rather than an attic.

good luck with yours.

The PEX is 5/8" which can be run up to 500ft, the last zone (furthest away from the overhead door) will only be run at partial flow as it is going to be a parking area for storage with a mezzanine above it for parts and office area.

Doesn't look like a whole shop on there....















The insulation, vapor barrier, overhead door and tracking was not on this shipment...so more to come. Builders are supposed to start tomorrow or Thursday!

No, no floor drains...no water service either. I am just using it as a workshop/storage for my collectibles, I have a 3 car attached for daily drivers and other toys.

Most vehicles will be in there for extended periods of time, the only time anything will go in/out in winter is for repairs, then any snow that will fall off will quickly melt/evaporate with the floor heat.

Friday was day 2 of the build...amazing how fast these things go up!

















I did go out and do some measuring and found the window framing was installed incorrectly (you can see the before above and after below). Glad I caught it when I did, it has been corrected now!

great pics, thanks!

What are the benefits of pole shed framing rather than 16 or 24 on center?

Mostly price. I had a few quotes for traditional framing and the difference paid for labor +.

The building itself was contracted out through the manufacturer, not sure if they do it on the side or not.


I am looking to borrow, rent, and in the worst case buy a long reach pole pruner or saw. There are a couple branches on the massive tree behind the shop I would like to trim. The builders are talking about using a scaffolding to do the roof on that side, and if they do I will see if they mind me using it to trim, but I am thinking due to liability issues they may not.

If anyone has one to borrow/rent, or knows a place to get one, it would be appreciated!

Great job, going to be a real nice shop when finished. Just wondering, how are the poles attached to the pad? Please keep the photos of the build coming. Thanks Tracstar

There is a 2 X 6 pressure treated sill plate that is glued down with PL Premium then there are holes drilled into the thickened edge and anchors placed in the pad. Poles are attached to the sill with brackets that are too bolted into the pad with anchors and then the plates are bolted into the posts;
