dkamp, interesting concept. I have done a lot of commercial concrete work and we almost always isolated the footings for the the structural posts from the slab, so things could move independently. Since I'm in Tennessee, I shouldn't have that issue. I was actually thinking about drilling holes in my posts and inserting rebar in connecting the posts to the floor. Thinking wind shear and high winds, trying to anchor the whole building, but I'm probably way over thinking it all. and besides, its only a pole barn.

How hard can it be to put a plastic tube thru the wall to a funnel inside?

Anyway, I'd put down plastic sheeting under the concrete to help keep
humidity down in the summer. The dehumidifier needn't run so often then.

Tom,
I can't get everything I need to use that restroom for to fit through the funnel...........

Besides, the shop is behind the house......could be a problem.....

Plus one for putting "facilities" in the shop. That is the most significant error I made when building mine.

I'll agree... facilities IN the shop... and a shower, and a slop-sink. SHE might ask why... the answer... so you don't hafta drag all the greasy grimey into the house when 'ya need to GO!

And it's always nice to have a big slop sink in the shop, to carry parts to when you need to hose the old-fashioned DIRT out of 'em (not oily grease... just DIRT)
