 Concrete floor in a Pole Barn

We are moving to 50 ac. in the country. There is a fairly new (3 yrs) 40 x 60 metal pole barn on the property. It has electric, lighting, water, gas, drains roughed int, etc., but the floor is still dirt/sand. I would appreciate any advice on installing a floor. My initial thoughts are that I want a vapor barrier of some sort and plenty of strength/thickness on at least the side where I will keep the tractor/implements. Also, can anyone tell me what I should expect to pay per sq. ft. for this project? Your thoughts are appreciated.

A few?s
Do you plan on heating it?
How are the poles set? on top of the ground. On footings?
How deep?
How much frost do you get?

You only need the vapor barrier if you are going to heat it in the winter. A 6" slab with 6 x 6 mesh, no. 6 wire, and a 3500lb mix will have a shear strength that exceeds the bearing capacity of the soil. Make sure you place the slab over at least 3" of a well draining sand/gravel mix. Saw cut the slab at a 15 foot pattern within 5 days of placing the slab. A ratwall is a must, and should be placed to the frostline. A well done 6" slab should run about $4/sq ft, but will vary depending on where you are and market conditions. Good Luck.

Don't know where you live, but I had a floor put in a 24'x30' pole barn a couple of years ago and they charged $2.50 per square foot, which included the reinforcing wire and cutting expansion grooves.

Did the $2.50/ sq foot include ratwalls? Ratwalls generally inrease the price to the $4 range.

I'm not sure what a "ratwall" is. Never heard the term, so I guess the answer is 'no'. They used the bottom rail that the siding attaches to as the outside forms.

Heat will be minimum, but by gas Reznor.
Poles are set on the ground.
Depth unknown.
Frost line is 30-36" (SE Ohio)

It looks like that will be the way this one is done also. Thanks.

I had a 40x40 poured and finished, 2 years ago, for $1.50 a sq ft. It's 5" of 3500 lb mix, with reinforcement wire and a layer of visqueen. They only had to put a form up for one side.

Everyone else I contacted about this job wanted 2.50 to 3 bucks a sq ft. Shop around and you'll be surprised how much you can save.
