about 20,000 plus about 4500 for all the excavation which was done over time...

still this prefabbed style was 10-15,000 less than other contractors quoted me for the exact same type of structure..

and a contrator could take his time.. this thing is going fast...

How are they attaching the sill plates to the slab? I didn't see any anchor bolts on the initial construction. Just curious ---- Extremely nice building by the looks of it.

I'll bet their using those blue concrete screws whos name eludes me at the moment(it's the medication). They seem to be anchoring a treated sill plate to nail the wall plate to, which is a very common form of construction.

Looks good John!!!!:thumbsup:

Tapcon is one of the types, they might use something like a Hilti gun with washers of some type. Tapcons are great for attaching things to concrete or brick. SJ, you are going to be in high cotton by the end of next week! Awesome!!! You are going to insulate and finish the inside aren't you? I don't remember you saying.:money:
