I definitely need to do some further editing but it is starting to look like something. Concrete and framing...

You should check out this site:
http://www.jughandleproject.com/cam.html

They built a 4 lane bridge next to the highway, and in 4 days of closure, removed the road, excavated, slid the huge bridge in place and bolted it all up. It's called "rapid bridge construction".

You can click through the images, but the finished movie isn't up yet, a week later.

Just about all I am going to get from the front. This one is heavily edited (pretty close to the final edit):

Excuse my construction illiteracy but what are they doing from 0:00 to 0:16 (in the most recent video)? It looks like they are pouring some concrete behind where the shop is being built, what is the purpose?

Also did you have concrete supports poured for the two post lift?

I can't wait till I own enough land to build a big *** shop on. Congrats on yours.

Video is cool btw

Electrical perhaps? Also I think it's his neighbor's, not his. He's too cheap to build a garage, let alone install a lift in it. That or this is what he's been saving his money for since he was a kid and found his first penny on the ground.

It is my drain field. It had four legs - two were blocked off and two new ones installed. The legs have to be 5' from any structure.

I've been a cheap *** my entire life. I told my wife when I turned 45 it would be time to "learn" to spend. I hit 45 on Feb 26th of this year.

I did not make 12' walls or add extra support in the concrete on purpose. I did not want a lift in my workshop. Just more stuff to trip over. I'll probably put the kwiklift in there for now but if it gets in the way I'll put it back in the garage. The building is supposed to be for wood/metal work. I don't do much car stuff at this time.

Wood shop?

This is no longer relevant to my interests...

AFAIK, you don't have to use pressure treated wood on concrete (but I am no expert). I know the garage in my first house (on a slab) wasn't pressure treated (not sure about my current house).

It depends on the area that you are in, how much your concrete sweats, and if the foundation comes up higher than the dirt around it to know if you need pressure treated or not. I use it in everything that touches the concrete, but we have 90% humidity year round and concrete here can sweat like crazy.

I'm surprised they didnt put any wire in the floor. For a slab that size it would cost roughly $150-$200 more, and its something I always recommend to our customers.

Usually when we do monolithic slabs we put in knee walls as well, but not everyone is looking for the extra support. For the purposes you plan on using the shop for that slab should do just fine.

I've been toying with the idea of doing some time lapse videos myself for some of the jobs we do. Only problem is most of the time its out in the middle of nowhere, so I'm not exactly sure how I'd keep the camera battery charged all day.

Nice videos!

You need a random scary face to pop up.

The video project is almost completed. They are working today but it will be one of the last times I will get usable video. Now I just need to write a song for the background music, figure out how to play some instruments and record it.
