Ahso!

I had assumed a slab, but the foundation piers will do (don’t know how you’ll mow under there however 8^)

The ramp looks great, nice slope. Hate to get a TS in there without it!

Do you have any plans for heating/cooling?

Guess I will just use weed trimmer, hadn’t really thought about the mowing.

Yes! Sometime in the future I plan on cooling. Need to insulate first. Not really too worried about the heat, as cold days on the gulf coast are few.

Normally their ramps are 6’ long, but I had them shorten it so it ended at edge of sidewalk. Turned out really nice! Was worried slope would be too steep with the shorter length. It may be a little steep for moving really heavy things, but feels just fine to walk on.

If you put something around the base make sure it is vented so it can breathe. I’m just north of Dallas and I didn’t think I needed airflow. My flooring was 3/4” T&G OSB flooring. I painted the floor with a few coats of grey Kilz so I thought I was good. In less than a year my floor became moldy and spongy. I added 16 – 2.5” round vents around the base and haven’t had a problem since.
