SpongeBob's RV Garage
So yet another time consuming project pulling me away from my Trace Inverter work. I'm finally making room in my 4500 sq ft Morton Building for SpongeBob. As many of you know, my MB contains a 2300 sq ft 2BR 2Bath house. I need to squeeze SpongeBob way over to the side as shown in the pic below. The space where the bus is used to be 5 horse stalls and a 12'x12' office, all of which are gone now. What's remaining is 825 sq ft of dirt. I need a concrete floor. I'm thinking 6" thick with fiber, but I'm open to your opinions concerning glass fiber versus steel reinforcement. I also need a 14'x14' insulating garage door. I'm looking at Higher Power Doors, but again I'm open to opinions and other ideas. I already have MB looking into the structural issues of opening the front up to fit the door. In the door size I'm looking at the truss mounted midway on the door isn't needed. Then, I get to insulate the building and add HVAC. Again, help me out with any and all ideas. Thanks!

I would suggest 6" concrete with steel re bar structure to support you 55K bus. That is what I had in our Florida garage. Be sure the concrete is a 5K psi concrete. As the old saying goes if little is good more is better. Good luck with the project.

Hish, #4 rebar on one foot centers, or two foot with one foot centers where the axles will be parked? I could maybe save a little money this way.

Ernie, I'd put up an entirely new building if I hadn't spent most of my budget on a 10 acre land purchase this past January. Smile I attached a pic below. You can see I do have quite a bit of space. The bus fits in there nicely with plenty of extra room for shelving and tools. So, I guess the answer is, I'm trying to do this on a budget.

Be sure that the contractor have a space between the soil and the steel (at least 1" above the soil, a vapor barrier is also a good idea) I would use 18" spacing between the rebar's and tie the cross rebar's with wire ties.
What a project good luck.
I will text you with my project at the new house later today

I have lots of land Al. What I'm going to do is dedicate a portion to concrete steel reinforced ramps. So, it'll be somewhat of an above ground pit. I'm afraid my water table is too high for a traditional pit. The horse stalls are gone, the office is gone, and I've made room for a hydraulic cantilevered hanger style door. The next task is to figure out how big a hole I can cut in the front of the building to fit my garage door and what I need to do to restore strength to the building.
