What are all of the round pieces for?

What size is the garage going to be? It looks like it is not going to be square. Correct?

hey the round pieces are just me adding some extra feet to the slab to make sure it dont move they ended up with crushed rock up to the top of them which you can check out in the next pic's

it's going to be 63sq meters (680sq feet) and your right it wont be sqaure, its trapezoid to fit the space

plus it's attached to the back of an existing garage the same size just oriented differently

great guess if the didn't end up with crush rock to there tops the would have been perfect for that, they are 50mm deep and with a 100mm slab they would hold the mesh perfectly in the middle

Hey all, well to start small update, I have removed the window at the back of the existing garage and cut away the bottom brick section to create the doorway for the workshop. Lucky for me when they built the garage the put in a large steel lintel and the opening is 1.2mtrs wide so plenty of room to get bikes in and out. cheers Andy

Hi all, Well we finished the concrete pour yesterday and it came up Nice! There are some jobs that it is so worth paying a professional to do and screeting is one them. Had 4 of my neighbours come over and barrow so we were able to unload 8 cubic meters of concrete in 1hour!
anyhow will take the formwork off next Weekend and give the whole area a good clean up so here's some pic's of how it all looks.

Slab looks great. I'm still curious about the white discs. Can you explain their purpose again? Thanks

Haha, you wouldn't believe how many times people have asked me about those Think of them like stumps of a timber (lumber) joisted house, supports the main bearers, and stops the floor from sliding (just me doing something different)

This is pretty cool. I plan on something similar next year with my garage. Expand out the back, put in a 6' roll-up door to the workshop I wish to build. Very nice.

As a side project to this I also have a bit of concrete work to do around the back door area of the house, because I get a new workshop the Wife gets a new deck covering the entire area between the house and the workshop, so because I have planned drainage under the deck, it has to be concreted under it, lucky for me most of the area has already been done! anyhow here are a couple of pics including the small old deck I had to remove before and after.
