did you or are you going too add power 110 (underground) before you pour the cement?
shouldn't your forms be on the other side of the pedestal's of the building?
don't know how much rain you get there but think of runoff..
awesome project- keep us posted with pictures as you go along - I'm jealous .. ... cool

Floating slab for interior floor. If you place the weight of the walls and roof on it by extending it out, the settlement will happen at the edges causing the slab to bust up in the middle of the floor due to the edges settling and the center not. I purchased a building built that way and it stinks having cracks through center of my building slab from edge to edge in multiple directions. Probably three inches higher in the center of my building than the edges now after 20 years of settlement.

depends how you do this: - minimum of 4" quality concrete with rebar thruout - sawcut it too prevent cracks.
plan this out no matter what the extra cost is too do it right - put a sub panel
inside the building for power & for possible lighting on the outside .. ... cool

Making progress on the Octagon station. With the help of my wife Jane I got the soffit tin installed. And with the help of my friend Dave I got the roof sheathing added.
