    Yep 50x99.
    We have been adding and compacting gravel. Because we had to move the planned placement of the building. Remember early on all the water problems. Now we need to raise the base on the south side a few inches.
    I haven't heard back from my Amish cement guy. I need to spend a little more time chasing him. You'd think he'd want a simple one day inside job with all this rain.

    Stopped in at ground zero yesterday for the first time. Shed looks huge but so do several of the items waiting to go in it.

    If there is any doubt that the Amish were actually there, I found evidence. There I was part of a horse shoe welded to there nailer/saw/BFH

    Well, I've been screwing around with cement contractors. The Amish guy decided the job is too big for him and passed it on to his BIL who also does concrete. He hasn't called. I spoke to the cement guy again today he said he would talk to his BIL again and see if he can get him excited about it.

    I got 2 local bids, they were just over $10K apart. Dirty and I are debating fiber vs no fiber. I'm looking towards fiber. So, I'm waiting on a better option as I feel I ain't getting kissed.

    10k apart? You do have some volume, but that just sounds nutty. Take 10k off the low bid and train dirty to be a contractor. 2-4 friends (subs) required.

    Are they bidding apples to apples, same material, etc.?

    Do you have any references for the contractors to weed out the difference in the price / quality?

    This is a pretty small county. I know most of the contractors. It's more a game of it's a bigger job for many of them and they aren't interested in it. So they are bidding high. The high bid did my house. He was about the lowest on that. He's down to working with a 3 man crew, so this is at about the top of what they could do. Easier work doing driveway and sidewalks I guess.

    I'm hoping to get another guy to bid it. He should be about 5K under the low bid. I should be able to get the friends price with providing lunch.

    i dont understand why size would be a issue ....unless your requiring the whole floor to be done in one pour....i can see where it would be more effecient price wise to to it in a single pour since i would assume they would plan on pumping the concrete in and a single pour would save multiple pump fees

    maybe you have a reputation of being difficult to deal with LOL
