    Iím not trying to ignore anyone...I just donít know the price per yard for the concrete. I paid $6200 for the 6 inch thick 20x40 pad. I paid separate for the rock to go under the pad to level up the space, with the rest to go on the driveway. The guy who I hired said since I bought the rock, he wouldnít charge for the anchor bolts. I think Iíve got 114 of them that will need to be drilled and then tapped in. They will go in every 12 1/4 inches, with a steel angle bolted onto the floor, and the building bolted onto the upright part of the angle. Maybe this two pics from the plans will show it better. Iíve seen some of these buildings that are but into a channel or trough in the concrete, which is then filled in. This goes flat onto the pad.
    Last year I was quoted $8000-$9000 by several different contractors, so Iím guessing $6200 is a good deal, but he might have over charged me.

    I might have mentioned it last year, but I was contacting several companies that made these types of buildings to check out their prices, ease of assembly, delivery charges, etc. About a month later I got a call from Mayflower Steel Bldg. The sales rep told me he had a building there someone had ordered, put down a deposit on, but couldn’t then pay the balance. It was smaller than what I wanted, so I ordered some extra panels to make it to the size I wanted, added on the end walls, and added an 8x8 over head door. The original buyer paid xtra for the arch connector plates, and I also ordered pins that screw onto the interior bolts so insulation can be installed easier, just pushing the insulation panels onto the pins, and pushing on a plastic disc onto the pin after the insulation is on to hold it into place. Even with the delivery, the total cost was only $7629. From what I’ve seen, the 20x40 would normally sell for around $15,000. I pays to shop around and to ask for any help they can give you.[IMG][/IMG]

    That concrete is a good deal. I got quoted $7k + for a 12x22, and a 6x10 about 6 months ago.
    Common sense is so rare these days, it should be re-classified as a super power.
