I like the blue and gray - the blue looks like Sunoco Blue - I keep wanting to put some yellow up to give it the Sunoco look or maybe something for a Goodyear look - it's Goodyear blue as well.


I know that I am in the whole thing at just under 50k. - no elect -no plumbing

5k - site prep
Pushing down an acre of trees and then grading, contouring, and filling and compacting then Laser scraping it level - that included the initial 20 tons of gravel at the drive cut off the road (This was a good deal, friend of my dad's, it was convenient for him in regards of location)


18k-The concrete and the finishing crew -
35-36 yds of 4000 psi concrete - 30x51 pad - equaled 5" --
Poured over 1" EPS and 6 mil poly (poly under the EPS)
EPS was $1000
10 guys finishing - they were GOOD - let me tell you.
Monolithic pour (18" footers, rebar boxes in the entire footers - J hooks set in the concrete for the steel)

6-7k building erection -

19k - steel building 30x51 - 14 foot eves 15-1/2 center - 3 commercial drum roll up doors 10x12 and one pass through person door. Fully insulated all metal with gutters and downspouts.


They had a number of color choices and I took a good bit of time looking through colors - then after placing the order I realized I could have gotten smooth side panels (among others) which would have made it look more like an OLD GAS STATION... the smooth sided from maybe the 50's - early 60's-

The builder questioned the colors when it was on the truck... then when it was up, he couldn't believe how good it looked.

No electrical inside - I have tons of conduit, fittings, spools of wire, breaker boxes, and breakers for 110 220 as well as 3 phase stuff not to mention - air pipe, regulators, separators, etc from when we closed down our plant after running in the same location for 25 years tons of 550 volt 3 phase machines, fork lift shop, pallet shop, and everything to service anything we ran plus spares were in the parts room plus, (way less expensive to have on hand, than to be down)- I've pulled more bundles of wire through conduit in warehouses than I care to think about-- albeit -using a forklift
