Time to wait for the curing ... They are pouring the second section (under the carport overhang) this afternoon.
The sealer my flat work guy uses goes on when the concrete is still green.

Re: Building a new shop - pre-fab steel building

Interesting, wouldn't have thought sealing it while green was a good idea. Slab is complete, cure time is done, hoping to get started on setting uprights later this week! Weather permitting, of course.

Re: Building a new shop - pre-fab steel building

So how is progress? Have been talking to the guys you got the building from and interested in what you think.

I wish I had input for you, but alas life keeps getting in the way! I have all my friends coming over on the 21st to get the frame set up, and as much else as we can get done. Be back with more after. 👍

Yes! I apologize for not getting over here to post some photos sooner. Life has been VERY busy!

We worked one day, about 15 hours (7 guys) and got about 80% of the framing up. Very happy with the building overall, everything went together easily and was logically packed on the pallets. Few washers were missing, but no big deal.

The only issue I have is that the end wall columns (which are non structural) were built about 6" longer than what shows on my blueprint - as a result, they don't fit. I've got a call in to the company on that one, hoping to have resolution soon. I will keep you posted.

Re: Building a new shop - pre-fab steel building

Next time you work on it let me know. I would like to ride over and take a look. I am getting very close to ordering one.

Re: Building a new shop - pre-fab steel building

Just a quick update, the company did make me new columns (the president actually called me to discuss the problem). They just came in last weekend. I'm traveling over the next two weeks, but hopefully I'll squeeze in a day to work on the building again soon!
