My lot is not big enough for a toy box, but I'm working on it. But since I own my pre-engineered building franchise.... I have it made as far as what I will build. plus I 'm a GC.. All I need is a half of county.

won't matter on thickness. go with 4" with wire mesh and and fiber mesh into the concrete. put in as many saw cuts as possible.

also make sure you fill is properly compacted

Mid-west, one of a couple of brands manufactured here in Houston. The building and doors are windstorm rated.

The back door lines up with the center front door, lets me back the boat through and out far enough to flush.

Definitely go big on the doors. I would go 14' high and at least 14' wide. I am fighting that now in my shop. I have (4) 12'W x 14' H and I have trouble with a few boats. You have to hit it straight with a wide cat. I am going to change one of them out to a 16' wide. I have a customer that just built a 35' x 100' with a 16' wide door and boy is it nice backing in. You can put anything in and a blind man could back it in.
It's not much more on the front end to do it right and plan for anything. You never know what the future may hold and it isn't cheap to change it later.

+1 on big doors. I had BCI out of Oklahoma build a 40 X60 for me last winter. I put a 20' on the one end and it is nice and easy to back the boat in. Don't need a spotter anymore.

I have found that no matter how bright the lights it's very hard to back in on a bright day. Having a door opposite the one you back in really makes it easy to see.

Thinking 14' walls with a 14'x14' manual door and a single standard garage door with an electric opener. It will have a small bathroom in it with a shower due to the inground pool being on the left side of it so people don't have to run in and outta the house while wet.

I'm tearing down an all brick three car detached garage to put this up and will be saving the brick to veneer the front of the building to match the house.

Don't know whether to go 4" or 6" on the floor though. Don't really plan to have anything real heavy inside of it. Thoughts?
Dont be foolish do the 6" with Fibre mesh 6 bag mix
