I have added the temporary shoring under the metal pan decking at the basement.

Wood was installed around the steel beams to prevent concrete from the upper slab pour from reaching the basement.
Several penetrations were made through the metal decking into the dividing wall above for electric and for return of air lines and such.
I still need to do a couple more near the panel for the floor heating to return low voltage thermostat wires.
Concrete pour of the slab is scheduled for Monday 10/17/16.

I also managed to get the fittings installed on the pex tubing and pressurized the system to 50 pounds.
I need to install a few more braces on the pour stop at the doors...clean up some leaves and maybe do a little caulking to prevent concrete from getting to the basement and it should be ready to pour.
Extended weather for Monday looks like partly cloudy and 77 degrees...80 for Tuesday with no rain shown till Thursday... luck

don't forgfet to put a thermal barrier exactly under the garage doors where they should seal to floor,we 3 2x6's then the apron is poured against the thermal barrier ,keeps cold weather from penetrating to your heated floor.

Concrete pour went off without any problems...
We used particle board to lay down over the pex tubing to wheel the concrete to the back corners.
Pex tubing stayed pressurized at 50#'s throughout.
Little Detroit there was no way to do the thermal break as you suggested. Had I stopped the slab under the center line of the garage doors it would have been easier...however the existing rebar and wire mesh stopped at the exterior of the 12" block.
I'll come back in the spring and install the aprons to transition from the gravel to the new floor. I'm thinking maybe 3' long with about 1/2" of slope away...

I ordered the concrete with fiber in it.
Typically you use wire mesh or fiber to prevent cracking...I opted for both...22 Yards of concrete later it is finished. boogie
The concrete was finished Monday afternoon.
It has set long enough now that I can remove the pour-stop at the garage doors maybe tomorrow weather permitting.
I've been trying to come up with a plan for sealing or painting the floor.
The right half (about 22') will be storage only and I would like to do something nice on the floor. The other half will be a working bay and will get welded and painted on so I'm up in the air as to what to do with it... shruggy

Damn...now THAT's a project! Thanks for posting the pics. Will the floor support a 4 door Imperial?? apimp grin

I'll soon have a garage/pole barn (56 x 40'...heated floor) put up on some ground that once was 4-5' high on one side. Had considered partial concrete walls, but decided on flattening the ground. Will end up with 2 or 3' retaining wall 10 ft from the building, and slope the ground behind the retaining wall.

It will hold an Imp...or two...Since I have a dually I made sure of it...
I know not having flat ground is a pita...I spent a lot of years with cars stored at garages other than at home...paying rent and driving a half hour or twenty minutes away to work on them...No more... boogie

RS23...that is a nice ride for sure...Its just not a 65 B Body... shruggy

The winter months will consist of busting my tail to pay for everything as much as possible so I can start the wall framing in the spring...
Somewhere between now and then I need to have a few conversations with Stu regarding the garage doors... wave
Once the temporary shoring is removed I may put some heat in there over the w/e's this winter and work down in the basement.
One good sign was we did get a little rain late this week and all the water runs to the floor drains... up

Managed to get all of the wood cap on the top course of block for the garage... up
Installed the foam backer underneath so everything should be watertight for winter... boogie
Then went down to the basement and removed all the temporary shoring from under the elevated slab...
I still need to remove the 4x6 wooden beams but I'll wait till I can get help one day...
Went and picked up the 2 windows for the ends today...maybe I can get those in tomorrow... shruggy

I am totally jealous! We can't do these kind of things down here where I live, not without having super expensive properties with plenty of land, or going further north miles away from anything.

Here's the pic with all of the wood cap on the block. This is how it will sit until spring when I build the rest.
Trick now will be to keep the leaves and crap off of it as not to stain the floor all up... rant
In the meantime I can still research efficient garage and entry doors and windows... up
