Welcome to the Forum!

where are you located? your location determines a lot of answers to your questions ....

depends on the structural loads, building construction, building code you are building under and soil bearing capacity of your soils

is it slab on grade? wood framed floor system? what type and style of roof? need a lot more information than that just a building size .....

do you have a plan/design for the building? are you required to file for a building permit?

if your local authority having jurisdiction (building department) uses the International Residential then sonotube construction is not found within the code. This means there is no prescriptive code, tables, charts or information contained in those codes. This means those structures must be designed by a design professional (professional engineer or architect) that will certify they are in compliance with the requirements of the building code.

Actually Gary,. I think the OP is presenting a Haiku.

Now we answer something like...

panty-hose stretches as goes the whispering wind.


Your welcome.

Anything that looks like a search or tweet, that is less than a paragraph, needs to start to be ignored. It is the norm that stuff like the one at post one are Spambots, or people being paid to spam boards.forums with stupid crap.

If this stuff would be ignored, then time can be spent on more meaningfull stuff, such as "OMFG, a Hurricane is going to hit the East Coast! I need to know what to do, even though I have lived my whole life here, but now with technology I need everyone on the Inturtubes to give a damn about nothing, but me."
