Nice size shed. 58 yards of concrete A floor that size takes about 24.5 yards. The rest is in the ground? Is it "unstable" soil?

For a 2000 sq ft shed?

I suspect with that much concrete he has around a 6" deep floor, plus support beams. Need to look it up, but four trucks (approx 40 yards) delivered the slab for my 30' x 50' slab. Yes, 6" floor. #5 rebar 16" o.c. footers and beams. About $13K in the slab... just need a SHOP on top of it!

James... what are the side walls made out of?

Side note... traded off on my shop. Two story building. Down stairs is 10' ceiling. Upstairs will be office space/guest room/large "bonus room" (finished out in the future). 1500 sq ft of space.

The slab is 5"-6" tk. Under the main frames and the corners is 4'x4'. The perimeter footing is 2' deep x 1.5' wide. Because it is sitting on about 20% fill in
one corner I had to use a engineer for the slab. I guess you know why there is 58 yards in the slab. I don't think the (homeboys) that finished the slab had ever finished concrete before.
