Slab For 20 X 16 Shed
I'm building a 20 x 16 shed in southeastern MA and my concrete guy wants to put 4 12" tubes at the 4 corners and then pour the 4" slab and the tubes all at the same time. The heaviest thing that will go in the shed is a small subcompact tractor. The balance will be misc yard care stuff, bikes, tools etc
My questions are:
Are 4 tubes enough? I would think I would want something in the center
In terms of reinforcement he wants to use wire. From everything I've read I'd be better off with rebar - is this overkill or necessary?
Any other tips for making sure my slab is done correctly? I'd prefer to do this only once.
