Thank's for the reply, the area will be Charlotte,NC, the soil type is clay. Floating not sure, sounding complicated. What I would like is a 28/32 foot two car with space for storage.I was quoted from $4500 to $6000 to have a slab laid. the gound is reasonably level open and accesible for that much I think with resurch and advice I can do it $2500 as I do not have 5000 for a slab plus for the actual garage material.

If you have never poured concrete before, you better just pay the money Thats a big slab and finishing it is not something for a first timer The concrete alone is going to cost you around $1800
