My slab has no insulation or radiant either...
It's not that bad just don't lay directly on the concrete, I use my creeper for anything on or near the floor. :;
The nice thing about concrete is 'thermal mass'. Even without radiant if you have like a pellet or wood stove- once you get it...
The reason I ask is because if you have any form of heat you are required to insulate to meet energy code.
All this means is wait till after the final inspection to put the heating appliance in. :;
Everyone keeps saying do radiant in the slab because they don't know what it costs to...
I did the chain thing for years and it sucks.
I got a set of Macs ratchet straps and they are great. I called Macs directly to get mine, they are located in Sandpoint, ID and super nice to deal with.
I do wish I had got the straps with the axle loops separate though for more versatility.
I know its BS but bull semen is the rumor I heard so that is the rumor I am spreading. :fawkdancesmiley:
Anyone who is actually concerned with what they drink shouldn't listen to my dumb ass anyways. :haha:
I have a 30x50 shop but everything I do could be done in 20x30.

I'm not sure how you're finding steel buildings cheaper than wood pole buildings. They must be exceptionally crappy steel buildings.
Wood framed pole building is the cheapest way to do the structure. I also do this for a living and I have done many wood and steel shops. If you would like...
I need to get out and use it more. But I think on flats or uphill I could keep up with snowshoers. On really steep climbs it would probably involve a different route or different gear to get to the top. Like the haystack- I could ski down it but probably not up.
