Make a seam every 10 feet, to help prevent cracking.

I made mine up against a barn on one side, a 2' wall on other, width is ok, but if given the chance I would make as wide as possible, very difficult to snow blow around in winter with amt of snow we have, and I like to keep the AS semi cleared out, d

i'm going with permeable paving grids and either gravel or recycled asphalt (see Boddingtons online for an idea of what I'm talking about.). Grass reinforcement mesh for tracks across lawn to parking pad. I figure to box it in, use the grids where needed to support tires, fill frame with one or the other of the above and the drainage will take care of itself. Lots cheaper than concrete. We'll see how it works out ...

Thanks, Doug. I'll still have a lot of work left after the muscle men leave. I'm sorta feeling my age.

Rich. yes, looks good.. can't tell from pic, but....questions:
- did you drill holes in the slab for rebar sticks to keep the slab from dropping or rising next to the house?
- Will the depth of cement impact the Gas supply valve exiting the ground? Do you plan to put a form around it so that there is no contact with the slab?
- Looks like a 'footer' was dug...? Or will you just end the slab at the foundation grade? If so, hope there is no water flowing around there...to possibly erode (unless you have a plan to handle that..
- will the approach be concrete?
- any reinforcement wire /rebar?
- no in ground utilities?

Channing,

thanks for keeping important things in the forefront:

There are rebar pins into the foundation about every 3'.

The gas meter will be boxed around about 2' x 2' and filled with pea gravel for future service needs. Gas line goes diagonally across the front yard, so only about 2' is under concrete.

no footer, but have spec'ed 5" concrete and extra rebar support on the front edge where I will be driving over.

The rather large ditch in the forefront of the last pic (rear of slab) is for a 4" buried downspout run that will go out to the right for 20+ feet. the downspout at the front corner has already been run across the front of the house, Y'ed into another and out into the front yard where I put in a french drain....buried of course. Slope of slap is 1/4" per foot away from the house.

The approach is EZ Roll permeable paver and sod will be re-laid on top and rolled down into the paver material. There is 4" of CA6 and 2" of compacted soil under that paver material on the approach.

Wire mesh will be in the concrete.....10ga, IIRC.

No other utilities, other than gas on that side of the house.

Thanks, for the thoughts.

Concrete weld plate

Rich, in this pic you can see a concrete "weld plate"... At least that is what we
Call them.

The concrete contractor did not set this one properly and there was a huge void so when I welded my post to it, it moved. I cut out the slab and sis my own "reinforcing job" and poured repair myself.

Note the conduit.... Future use became immediate and glad I did it.
