Another thought, you may need to check with the builder of the house to see what strength concrete he used in the part you want to use as a garage. I always had 4,000 mix with wire or rebar and fiber both in the garage concrete. Also the place you want to locate a new weight bearing wall may require a new footing under the slab.
