Cross Over Type Building

I got this wierd little project coming up. Best way I can discribe it is a cross between a shed and a garage.
No floor, will be compacted rock of some sort. 20x20
All garages I do are on slabs, sometimes frost wall but always tying into something. Customer wants me to build this on sonotubes.
Not sure if this would work or not.
Its funny there not pouring a slab to save money but a lot of the other things about this garage/shed thing they're sparing no expense

Re: Cross Over Type Building

We use sonatubes on pole barns a lot. Are main reason is to keep cattle from rubbing and putting a lot of pressure on the poles. Go for it, nothing hard at all

Re: Cross Over Type Building

Sounds like pole barn construction. Columns set with cement and StoneDust/Traffic Bond for the floor. Real typical in the upper Midwest to Northeast for large farm out buildings and rural storage.
