Default Project "Truck Shop" underway

Just got back from area plan and the building commision. Successful on the zoneing permit , the deconstruction permit was another story. When i went in to the building commision office, i found out that the gov't now wants you to jump through hoops to tear down a shoddily built garage, that they approved in the first place.
First step: Bring in a picture of the stucture you wish to tear down.
2nd step: place an intent for demolition notice in front of the build for 1 week.
3rd step: wait 7-10 days for the historical preservation people to say...duh, tear it down.

So that was a little hick-up in the road, but in a couple weeks we should be starting the tear down.

My father and i plan to build the new garage and tear the old one down. The only concern we've got right now is figuring out a way to get the old uni-pour footings/slab torn out without destroying my ashphalt driveway. Should be interesting.

The only work we will sub out on the new shop is the slab pour/ ashphault apron.

Heres what im starting with...22x44 P.O.S. it looks like it was made by one of those local garage builder companies 25 years ago. No overhangs, sagging homade 2x4 trusses, heaving concrete, steep approach, rotting siding..etc:





Here's what will be replacing it:
30x56 shop with footings, foundation and 2x6 walls. 12' height far right stall, 10' height throughout the rest. Attic storage trusses. We are going to sink the elevation down, so the the approach has about a 6" fall over 10'.
(1) 10x10, (2) 8x10, (1) 9x7 doors. Here are the plans, let me know what you think...

Oh man,
I love the high bay in the gable. My first thought was that your old shop wasn't too bad! Looking forward to seeing the progress and the pics. Keep them coming.

Well here are some updates!

Building is gone and slab is being tore out in these pics. I didnt get to snap any deconstruction pics of the building. Was to busy sorting through all the mouse sh*&. Almost ever stud cavity was filled with some sort of rodent nest. There were spiders everywhere and we even got into some yellow jackets.

The 100HP skid steer wouldnt budge the unislab so we had to rent a jack hammer attachment. It went pretty smooth after that.

Hope you enjoy!

Looks good so far..............Seeing disiduous trees all over is always a shocker to me. Mostely evergreens out here, plus we are in a drought, things are either brown or on fire!

I gotta ask, why didn't you use the blue tractor to pull the undercut tree down? Surely it has more bottom end than the pickup? (nice truck by the way, just looked like a task better suited to the tractor to me?)

We did try the new holland, but it didnt do much. Its a 30hp and has low gearing but couldnt get traction. The tree just lifts the back tires. The truck has a little more weight.

What it finally took to get it down was the skid steer ramming it while i was pulling in low range with my truck. The ground under the old garage was a desert. Very very dry hard. This red oak had more roots on a oak than i had ever seen. The roots went out a couple feet and dove straight down.

Thanks for all the comments everyone. We got the footings dug today and inspected, ill try to get some more pictures up tomorrow.
