Looks like I'm gonna hire out the rest of the project from this point.
Well not all of it, I don't give up that easily. Twisted Evil 
Had a contractor give me an estimate of about $3100 to set the trusses, sheating, roof steel, wall steel and man doors. Finish all the soffits as well.
I'll still do the OH doors, back fill and grading work before the concrete floor.

Here are some new pictures.
Have leveled about 100 tons of sand in the shed, need a little more. Waiting on some concrete contractors to give estimates on floor.

Rich, what recommendations do you have for a floor?
Looking at standard 4" thick but looking at options for surface hardeners and sealers. Thinking about some masterplate Ff.

Looks good. Not sure I need to go that tall. 10x10 OH doors would probably be good enough for me, might have issues if I put a lift in it though.

Well if you go with a 10' tall door you'll need a minimum 11' ceiling height and that's with a low clearance hardware kit.

I would pour a 3500psi 4" slab while having it 6"deep an 18"wide in around the garage doors where you will be putting the most weight when coming in at an angel. 5" would be better if you plan on something heavy, but I think you will be good as long as you keep the wire mesh off the ground. 30x40 at 4" deep will be 14.81 yards, so if you go a little deep in spots, I would order 16 yards.

Dan, are you going to insulate it and if so, how? And electricity- sub panel or will it have its own meter?

Insulation:
2" high density rigid foam board(Dow) for under the concrete slab
Thinking about 3" foam board for the walls/ceiling, http://akroncanton.craigslist.org/mat/3993049539.html and would like to cover the interior walls with 29 gauge steel panels like used on the outside in either white or galvanized.

Electricity, most likely a sub-panel because I don't want to pay for the added meter fee.
Plus a buried electrical feed isn't as noticeable to certain ugh "people".
Then there is the buried water line and natural gas line.....
Two barns back I did a buried service with a sub-panel fed by 6-3 cable.

3-4000lbs of #57 gravel in the old truck

Finished grade, pads left deeper for hoist

Concrete truck here.

mud being poured

Finished floor, solvent based sealer being applied today, saw cut tomorrow.

Now we just need to a wait a week to get the heavy equipment in there.
Floor is 5-6" thick, took about 20 yards and more like 8" at door openings.

Forgot to add:
Budget was blown this year for heated floor. I'm too impatient to wait until next year so I decided to forgo the $2K insulation/pex floor heat and just do a regular slab. I managed to survive with a REALLY cold floor in Wisconsin so this will be a cake walk down here.

I always like a wood burning stove in the garage in the winter. Looks like it came out nice. Just a little to far to travel to change my oil in the winter LOL! I really need to sell my 53 Dodge so I can get my garage back!

After building the Duck coop and the trampoline, I don't have much of a backyard. My wife wants me to buy 10 acres in Georgia and I can retire and do what I want. Pole Barn, rifle range, no way..........I can't take those humid summers!

I wouldn't mind the Pacific Northwest. I could see myself in Wisconsin and being a cheesehead at a Packers game!

Obviously you have no Amish neighbors. Good thing your yellow friend can do all the heavy lifting and make it a one man job.
Looks like it'll look good.

Not only that we have our own miniature NASCAR tracks (the state calls them roundabouts)- I get six laps of practice every morning on my way to work every morning- six roundabouts in a nine mile stretch of road!

Never been to "The Sprawl of America" in the 11 years I've been in this neck of the woods though I did have a couple of close calls when DW dragged me a couple of times to the nearby Swedish Cardboard Furniture Store (IKEA). I'd just as soon keep it that way. The older I get, the more I dislike crowds.

There are some in the neighbor hood but I refuse to deal with them.
Most people who live around the Amish in this area do not care for them.

Here are some updates, it has been a while and I've got a little more done but no where near what I'd like to have.

Here is the drain tile for the curtain drain and yard drains.
" />

Trenches for electric, water, gas and low voltage accessories.
" />

1" PEX gas line, 24" deep, tracer wire and caution tape.
" />

Garage doors installed. There is plenty of light let in from the 12"x12" south facing windows.
" />

Pulled the 5.9L Cummins out of sons truck w/o overhead lights at this point.
" />

Finally some lights today! Have a 10'x30' section of ceiling done with steel and three 4' T8-32W light fixtures.

I don't have much to add other than man that looks like a really nice setup Dan. I'm humbled at all the thought, skill and know how one would need to take on something of that nature. I was thinking earlier I could live in that thing! Again very nice.
