Building the dream: Intro and layout


what’s up everybody and you’re watching
the first video in a new series by RR buildings for those of you that have
been around for a while you know what’s gonna happen but for those of you that
just found the channel make sure you hit that subscribe button because there’s a
lot more content to come and you don’t want to miss out this series we’re gonna
be building what I’m calling the dream shop stick around so you can find out
exactly where that name comes from so the job behind us is gonna be a 72 by 80
fully insulated and finished shop and we’re doing this all on a concrete frost
wall for foot and then there’s also going to be a 20 by 20 office on the
front corner as well as a 20 foot lean-to down both sides and that’s a
nice place for this customer he’s an excavator he does a lot of our
excavating actually and a good place to put all of his extra bucket spare you
know machines that he’s not using keep them out of the weather it’s gonna be an
interesting job site he’s literally sand everywhere working amongst some trees
again but customer is our excavator and he definitely does a good job giving us
a nice site to work with there’s gonna be the 20-foot lean-to here 80 foot deep
shop 72 foot wide and then we’re gonna have another lean-to over here on the
other side it’s gonna be a good one 18 foot tall this whole area here in the
foundation wall section is all gonna be finished
insulated it’d be really nice to really see from this angle here so this is a 20
by 20 office it’s going to be off the corner and then the 20 foot dimension is
going to continue down to this corner so this will all be storage under roof and
then the shop and then the lead to over there how big of a boom is on this you
said 116 foot very cool I’ve actually never
experienced a pump truck on-site typically we’re going to use Ready Mix
trucks right at each hole fill up our piers I don’t get involved a lot in the
concrete process I showed up here this morning to just verify all of our knock
out locations for doors walk doors overhead doors and they’re gonna be
pouring the walls here any minute just waiting for the first concrete truck to
show up pretty cool typically in my area you’re not gonna see a pump truck unless
you’re on a large commercial site where they’re trying to pour a ton at once and
that was actually the case on this site because just the nature of what we were
trying to do there was no way we were gonna get a full ready-mixed truck to
drive around this site the sand was way too soft and we haven’t had rain in a
while what’s that made it even worse now we could have put gravel around the
whole building but that’s a cost that we thought would be better served just
having the pump truck come in and do their thing the only problem with that
is that might be a decision that later on comes back to haunt us when we try to
move our machinery around the site cuz I would love to hang around and
watch them pour concrete from that pump truck because that is that is definitely
pretty cool I’ve got to go and finish up the job I’m currently on so in a couple
days I can get here and start building this awesome shop what is up everybody
and welcome back to the newest build series this is going to be a 72 by 80
shop and it’s gonna have right behind me a 20-foot lean-to on this side and over
here there’s gonna be a 20 by 20 office space with a 20-foot lean-to continuing
down that side wall so in total it’s gonna be a hundred and twelve foot wide
and 80 foot long the side walls they’re gonna be 18 foot tall in the main
building and we’re going to finish the interior as well so it’ll be a fully
finished building fully finished shop and it’s gonna be a good one so the
unique thing about this shop is that it is all gonna be on a foundation wall so
just like a home we’ve got a 4-foot footing wall on or a four foot wall on a
footing and there will be a concrete pad on the inside so it’ll be you know
completely enveloped from the elements you won’t be able to have any rodents
burrowing underneath I mean this is the ultimate way to do a building but most
people don’t want to spend the extra cost typically there’s about 45 bucks a
foot on that wall versus us doing our concrete piers we got a bunch of stuff I
brought in some lumber this morning just to get going I got a big lumber load
coming tomorrow got the scissor lift dropped off we’ve
got our trusses poster back there behind the scissor lift and I brought in a
different telehandler we’re gonna give this girl a try this is a JLG g9
I like my jl jeez I like my orange but what I really wanted was to get a cab
and I might buy this I don’t know we’ll see I’m gonna give it a try see what
kind of shape it’s in looks like it’s got a rotating fork which might be handy
oscillating axles that is a must and this is a 9000 pounder interesting I think it’s got a 43-foot
boom so I’d appreciate it if you guys stuck
around hit that subscribe button and follow this series I think it’s going to
be a lot of fun there’s a lot to it there’s a lot I’ll be showing and even
though this is probably overkill for a lot of people a lot of people don’t need
a 72 by 80 shop but I do know a lot of people want a 72 by 80 shop so stick
around if nothing else just to see how massive this is and how cool this comes
together I’m excited I’ve actually been working on this project for about three
to four years and what I mean is I have been working with this customer I’m
doing this project they’ve been back and forth back and forth we’re finally gonna
do it so I’m excited for that if nothing else but I hope you guys are excited to
watch it all come together one of the first things we got to do on this
footing wall is there’s you know always thinking about the next trade in line
right clean off your work prep it for the next guy but we’re gonna go around
Gregg’s running the blower we’re gonna get it all cleaned off so we can start
marking our brackets this type of job right here is where the
stabile layout station really comes into play
this is the LA one ATL and this is going to give us perfect square so even though
the concrete guys probably did a really good job making a square building what
we’re gonna have to do is we’re gonna come in off these corners and we’re
gonna make we’re gonna make our marks inch and a half in so that is where our
actual corner posts are gonna be and then we’ll set this laser down just like
so and it’s gonna shoot us a perfectly square line from this end all the way
down to that end and then once we have those two points determined where we
measure over on this wall it’s gonna be seventy nine nine and this wall seventy
one nine down we then will transfer this machine to that point Square back to
this line and it will give us a perfectly square line over there so I’ll
show you guys exactly how we do that so what we’ve done is we’ve taken the
layout station we’ve came in an inch and a half on both of these corners and you
can see we’ve got our laser right on that corner so now you know in theory
it’s gonna shoot right through Greg to the other corner and then it’s got
another laser that shoots a ninety to that corner so what we’re gonna do is
I’m gonna take this receiver this receiver when I turn it on and I tell it
well whatever this button is telling it it tells it to move this laser you can
see here on the backside it can go actually we should probably make sure
this is about in the middle and that gives it as much potential swing one way
or the other we’re still good here but what it’s gonna do is it’s gonna move
this laser left to right until it finds my late my receiver on the other end
right where I want it so I’m gonna go down here I’m gonna put an inch and a
half mark on that wall find this receiver with the laser and it should in
theory give me a laser lying on that end at inch and a half off the wall if the
concrete guy did his job so obviously these are all theories
I didn’t do the concrete work I didn’t layout the building so we’re gonna see
exactly how it works but the good thing is I know with the stabile a laser it’s
going to be perfect so the first thing I’m going to do is I’m going to turn it
on and then you want to be a little bit away from your wall so that it doesn’t
pick up the signal but I’m gonna hold this button down
oops not long enough so now that it’s blinking it’s looking the laser has
started to move so we go ahead and we put this right on our mark and we just
wait we wait for that laser to find the receiver and I don’t know which way it’s panning
it could be panning left where I want it to go right to find me but you’ll see
eventually it’ll find the receiver see there it is it’s finding it it’s
finding it so once that crosshair disappears then
it’s locked on we’re still moving it’s moving very minutely this is accurate
within I do believe it’s three thirty-seconds up to 200 foot so we’re
only going 92 feet so it’s still getting there you know with this distance it’s
got to move just a hair to get on wait for it boom
now it is locked on so now that this is locked on that laser is not going to
move Gregg should be able to go back there find exactly where the 90-degree
lasers hitting and see if we need to adjust it so now we come back to this
wall back here we’ve got our layout station up here in this corner we just
basically lined it up with the front wall now we’re going to come back here
is our inch and a half mark and Wow that’s really close
not bad concrete guy I gotta give them a shout-out that is really good so what
that means now is we’re gonna pull a tape measure from this point to this
point seventy nine foot nine inches we’ll put
another mark right here and then we’ll bring that layout station set it right
here and we’ll use the receiver to line it up with this corner since we know
this line in that liner ninety and it will shoot us a ninety to that corner so
now I got Gregg down there holding the tape measure and I come down here and
I’m gonna measure this 280 foot 9 inches so now this crosshair right here is
perfectly square to the front wall at the dimension I want so now I can set
the layout station on this point use this receiver to get it lined up with
that point and it will give me a square point over here lots of points but the
point is it’s gonna be hopefully perfect and once we get that point designated
we’ll take our tape measure and we’ll measure this distance to determine if
it’s right if it’s the exact same dimension that we want we know we’re
good but I’ll still probably double-check this with a cross X
measurement I’ll probably get a diagonal measurement just because I like to
double-check so now that that’s locked down we’re
going to take the receiver down okay so if you’re still with me we
started in this corner we got a square line to that corner I don’t know
we got a square line off of this corner all the way back to there so we made
sure that this wall was square with this wall we then got a dimension off at this
point to this point of 71 nine that’s where my outside corner of my first
bracket is we then move the layout station you can see it way over there we
moved it over there and we we got squared up with this wall here to
determine the point over there where Greg is we now are going to measure back
from him to me and if we are 70 or sorry 79 nine or in this case 80 foot nine
inches because we’re burning a foot then this layout station is amazing okay so he’s burning a foot I’m going
480 foot 9 inches that my friends is called efficiency and perfection so
right there this is where I wanted to be and you can tell all this was was a
reference line we laid down with the receiver when we had the layout station
in that corner so this mark here is what we measured from that corner at 17 1:9
so it goes right through the line that we already laid I’d call that perfect
all right moment of truth I just put in my rise of 79 9 my run of 71 9 it gave
me a diagonal of 107 three and five sixteenths so Greg is going to be
pulling me one foot past our mark so makes it easier to be efficient or
actually correct so I’m actually going to be looking for 108 three and five
sixteenths are you good Gregg 108 three
five 16s here’s what you can notice right now I’m pulling the tape measure
it kind of moves around clearly we’re spot-on but if we were just be doing
this manually and not using the layout station to get the exact marks how would
I know exactly where to put that measurement so needless to say the
layout station is about 1,500 bucks but if you want to be accurate and efficient
you want to you know strive to be as perfect as possible it’s money well
spent because I mean this is only our second building ever using it and it was
that easy to lay down four corners and they’re perfect I mean I don’t know what
else to say it’s perfect so you spend the money to make money right have some lines and drop some dimes
Gregg the how it goes what do you say yeah
snap some lines and trust me on live and drop and die they just said intermittent
rain in the Levin 30 total stays away let’s go say yeah I got rained on would
be sweat from working hard nasty we just have a rain storm moved through
so we had to blow the wall off there’s a lot of water which is never any good
when you’re gonna pull out your snap line but we got it blown off it’s dried
up pretty good so we’re going around now and we’re snapping some chalk lines in
between whoo how’s my hair we’re snapping some chalk lines in
between all of the marks we made so we made our four corner marks but then we
also went about every 20 foot on the wall just to confirm that when we snap
our lines we’re where we want to be good now that we’ve laid our snap lines
across the wall intersecting with all the points we laid down with the layout
station we’re good to basically pull out a tape and we’ll mark all of our bracket
locations and then we’ll be good to actually install those so up until this
point it’s all been prepped but now if we did our job right this is easy should
put them right where we want and yes it would be really nice if this was all
backfilled customer is actually an excavator and he
realized once he started back filling this that he wanted to put plumbing in
for some pressure washers stuff like that so I told him no big deal we’ll
work around it whenever we pull any measurements we always burn a foot on
the tape measure so when you hear me say burn a foot that means instead of
holding it at the very end we’re actually holding the tape measure at one
foot and what that does is it allows us to be a little bit more accurate versus
the end of the tape measure sometimes can be bent or whatever so always
thinking accuracy so what that means now I’m gonna laid out this wall 8 foot on
center so I’m burning a foot I’m not gonna go to 8 I’m gonna go to 9 now also
the start of my wall where he’s holding down there is one and a half inches in
from the outside dimension so my first post Center is going to be 7 10 and a
half or in this case 8 10 and a half since I’m burning a foot so we’re just
gonna go down the wall every bracket after that is going to be 8 foot on
center so 8 foot 10 now we’re 16 ten and a half twenty-four ten and a
half thirty two ten and a half forty foot ten and a half now the important
thing also is as soon as we snap these lines we’ve got to get everything marked
and drilled because if we could uh look at any sort of rain this line will be
gone and then we got to start all over so we always try to use a permanent
marker for any final measurement marks anything that’s final which these
bracket locations are final fifty six ten and a half sixty four ten and a half
seventy two puts our wall at 80 foot nine inches inch and a half on both
sides would make it eighty one burning a foot 80 foot exactly that’s our wall
dimension now that we got our marks down on the concrete we take our old Midwest
per McCallum brackets these are sturdy wall / McCallum brackets 883 OTS so
these are the eight inch three ply laminated brackets for Ohio timberlands
which is what we use for our posts these are going to get a couple red head
anchor bolts and then we’re gonna put some Simpson tighten HD 5/8 by six inch
anchor bolts in the big hole so it’s amazing how strong these are I know a
lot of guys don’t like it when we do wet set but honestly I do like what sets
just a pain to do when the concrete guys are laying out their walls we just had
this front push through I don’t know if you can really see it but holy cow we
needed it I think we got Sun back here behind it but it just drops some cool
air and that feels amazing cuz it’s been hot out here we’re gonna start drilling
some anchor bolts in that way we can get our brackets all in and mounted and then
we can bring out the lazer the rotary laser to determine height so we can get
our get our story post made up and start cutting post gotta love the days we’re super hot then
a storm bust through and you get rain then the Sun comes back out it’s super
hot and it’s humid and then it rains and you’re like constantly picking up tools
just waiting for it to stop raining again and then we’ll be back out there
could go out and work in the rain I don’t melt but tools they cost a lot
of money ready to drill some holes so I’m gonna go through and put some of
these tapcon quarter by two and three quarters in and those go here in the
smaller holes and then what we’re gonna do is go through and greg is drilling
down there behind me I don’t know where he’s going now but for the Simpson Titan
HD these are 5/8 anchor bolts and these suckers grab it’s amazing how strong
these walls are I don’t have the numbers I’m exactly but maybe if I remember I’ll
put the specs down in the comments below I see you guys have seen the process
before but real quick we’re we’re gonna go ahead and shoot all the grade
measurements to these brackets and what I’ve done is out on the front of the
building where the garage doors are the customer wanted the floor finished floor
to be about six inches down from the top of the wall so I made a mark I found
right where the laser you know ding-ding-ding-ding-ding I found right
where the laser was at that measurement that was twenty seven and a quarter so
now I’m going around and wherever this bracket this is 20 and 9/16 now for all
of you metric people I’m sorry I don’t know what that is clearly there’s a lot
of you that would wish I would do this in metric 20 and 9/16 I think that’s
what it was yep that’s about six and eleven
sixteenths smaller than my twenty seven and a quarter so that means let me stop
that that means that this bracket the top of this bracket where the post is
gonna sit is six and eleven sixteenths taller than the finished floor height so
when we go and make up our columns we’re going to make sure that we do 18-foot
walls – six and eleven sixteenths on this bracket only every bracket has its
own measurement based off of the laser so if you guys are a little bit confused
I’ll go ahead and CAG the video where I went over this and a little bit more
depth yes these are all negative marks so we got all of our brackets down we’re
ready to build that’s the important thing kind of nice not having to dig
holes I can make sure everything is perfect right where we want it so you
can see the tighten anchor bolts I’m telling you this thing this is sturdy
like always if you have any questions about the methods we use if you are
curious about why we’re doing something that’s what the comments are for feel
free to drop a question below hit me up on a message a direct message if you
want but I really hope you guys are enjoying this I hope that you stick
around and watch the build I think you will enjoy it I know I enjoyed it and I
know that the customer enjoyed it so that is in the end what’s most important
but we’ll see you guys back here in a couple days for the next video where we
start building the walls so hit that subscribe button hit that thumbs up and
feel free to leave me feedback thank you

  1. Great to see that Stabila Layout Station in use, thanks. I sometimes use smaller laser squares for various jobs and would love to have something larger.

    Had a giggle at the metric comment. I grew up with imperial and then switched to metric, so do both. After the initial learning curve I'm now certainly glad we switched. It's interesting to see so many manufacturers in the US switching to metric in the past few years, however if it's anything like here in Australia, the construction industry will hold on to inches until the death rattles set in! Kudos to you for the mental gymnastics however, God knows how many screwups I've seen as a result of it.

  2. The quality of this searise was a craft,men's work I only wish I had you do my 24/30 shop but that was done in 1993 the only thing I wonder is elictric wiring will it all be run with conduit

  3. I wish every contractor had your skill level, integrity and attention to detail.. but then again.,. good for you they dont!

  4. awesome concrete work. I grew up framing residential homes with my dad, and I never saw anything closer that n a 1/4 out of square. I'm impressed with the laser. that can definitely save a ton of time on laying out. that is probably one of the most time staking jobs is laying out foundation. very impressive laser and same to the guys who done the stem wall, great work

  5. Don't those concrete walls need tar or some sort of under grade protection? I remember as a kid in MI they used to tar the basement walls. Maybe I should just keep watching….which I will. Good Job.

  6. Do you guys ever put up steel buildings? I wonder how it is to build a steel building compared to a wood frame building?

  7. Why you did not clean bracket bolt hold downs? When your partner screwed hold down bolts in they did not go flush because of concrete debris under bolt head. Want that cause a lose fit? I think so in my opinion, don't you?

  8. I found your videos a few days ago and I’ve already watched 2 build threads and just started this thread. Love your videos and it really makes me want to build my own building.

  9. My new favorite channel👍 I started with how to build a garage then farm shop build and now building the Dream. Great details from building techniques to using equipment and specialized tools. Great !!!

  10. You can use upside down clear coat paint to spray your chalk line, that way when it rains, it’ll be there indefinitely. I use it all the time. Works great. Great video

  11. how do you like the Milwaukee rotary hammer? have you ever tried the dewalt? looking to get a battery powered one any advice? going to have roughly 400 holes to drill and don't want to mess with cords, do you remember how long of concrete lag bolts those were?

  12. This is a phenomenal project with great detail. I’ll have to watch the entire build. Are we able to purchase plans for this build?

  13. “… many points. But the point is…” lol you may have a point though.

    O.o first time I hear “burn a foot” but then again, we use the metric system here in Australia

  14. So I’ve recently subscribed to your videos and have loved watching! I feel like I’m learning a lot and relearning some things I knew. I use to build steel warehouses so very similar. But I’ll tell you what. Watching these videos are making BEYOND antsy to build a shop! I told my wife the other day I want one… so someday! And if I feel confident enough after watching more of your videos, I may attack it myself!! Keep up the good work! I know how satisfying it is to do this kind of work!!

  15. Little trick. If your expecting any type of rain shower when doing your layout, once your done with one long line, take a can of hair spray and spray it all the way down, it wont last forever but it will last for small shower. Baring that if you expect a ton of ran, use a can of clear spray paint.

  16. You did show us the inside when the concrete was poured. I see only at the bottom a few bars. What about the higher part? If there is any pressure sideway's, concrete will crack, or is it poured with fiber?

  17. Metric system is the best man. And it’s easier… I think that you should learn how to use it. Once you’re in, you never come out.

  18. is there a reason you use chalk instead of oxide? im a framer in australia and we just use oxide for our setting out and just avoid using oxide where it will be visible once finished ie: garage… would love to know if youve used it before or would try it? we cant use it when its raining but we stand frames on dripping wet slabs once we have flicked it all out, just food for thought, love the vids none the less

  19. @25:00, think you meant to tag a video with more depth on laser measurements. Curious if it's this one, https://youtu.be/pjzC8NFboXA . Loving the detailed, practical and transparent content.

  20. Love seeing how different states cut different pads for buildings , here in Oregon the whole pad would have been dug out and rocked first then a slab and or footings built on it…lots of clay here though so our site work costs are much higher typically. Great work!

  21. I have watched a few of you videos now and I finally knwo why you keep saying the measurements at so many feet 10.5inches lol

  22. I am going to be building a shop in Alberta Canada and really appreciate these videos on the methods and procedures you use! The videos will make me more informed when I talk to contractors which should make their work easier and result in a better product. I am totally hooked on the videos as I have learned many things from the various segments. It is a tremendous amount of work on your part; however, the benefit to individuals like me cannot be fully stated. Thank you!

  23. Should use a steel tape not those stretching tapes and just use black chalk in your "snap line" wont wash away in the rain

  24. JUST Started Watching Your Videos Very Interesting ? One Summer I Worked Putting Pole Barns Up After I Retired 33 Years Transit Mixer Driver . I Working For 5 Months in 2011 The Name Of Company Peter Young Pole Barns , Brighton ,Michigan Russ Robinson Hamburg ,Michigan

  25. Spray your lines lightly intermitantly and on junctions. A bit of water will get your marks back. Will last till the end of the job. Have used clear acrylic if it might be seen later or any light color if you are getting flooring.

  26. I'm addicted to your Videos. Totally professional amazing perfect work. You are super bright. You could've been an engineer. Best of success to you.

  27. Have you ever done a cost per foot video for us guys that might want to take on a project on our own?

  28. When u drill holes for the brackets in the concrete, is the idea that the concrete is still a bit wet, so it will set around the big bolts that were screwed in? It just seemed like some holes still had wet concrete. Im about to pour cement for double toed posts on side of pergola and was wondering. Great work!

  29. 16:13 You claim that laser station is necessary to do perfect layouts, but you said it wasn't used to do that particular layout. It did nothing other than double check and confirm the accuracy and skill of the contractors that actually did the layout and forming; whom most likely used only basic trigonometry, a sight transit, tape measures and string. Maybe, a video of you plotting a layout using only that laser proving your claim.

    Otherwise, that overly expensive laser is a waste of money and redundancy, which you proved just by doing the preferred method of checking cross diagonals using a single tape measure and a pencil. Or, doing a 6x8x10 check at every corner on larger layouts performs the same job.

    Of all the hundreds of foundations I ever laid out, plotted and poured, not once have I needed this kind of laser. Second, those kind of lasers have a very short max distance, where a good transit can go for thousands of feet plus. I would rather spend that $1500 on a good theodolite and level transits.

  30. OK, now I am suffering from building envy. I only have a 40X60 steel building. Gonna need to finish off an area for a paint booth (heated for winter). Love watching these guys work. They're like the Tom Silva and Norm Abrams of pole barns.

  31. I have watched probably 20 of your videos so far and I find them very educational. What you said was true. When you see the 'process' that's used to construct these buildings, it really is not hard. Having the proper tools and equipment is what makes a huge difference in how much you work. The videos are really good in explaining 'why' you make sure your corners are square, 'why' the columns need to be plumb. When you prepare to build-up the walls with the steel panels, it'll fit together accurately and be flush to all the proper edges. Love the tool reviews and explanations as well. Please keep making the videos.

  32. Have you guys ever traveled to Ohio to do a building I was curious bc I've got a 24×28 outback and was curious about pricing for the building being built I'll do finishing work

  33. I've framed large custom homes for about 40 years and learned a long time ago that when chalking off foundations and slabs to spray clear spray paint over chalk lines , never have to rechalk lines, and don't spend wasted time doing it twice

  34. Go metric and join the rest of the world. Feet, inches sixteenths, etc etc is so last century. Metric is so much easier you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

  35. Hi; great job…. With a sandy ground – why not put in french drains around the foundation in case of heavy rains?

  36. It was really amazing ,the methods were , my only question is will the bolt which u drilled strong enough to hold the load as i have never seen this kind of construction before
    it could be great if u can explain me how this system work ?! and really burn afoot really helpful 🙂 keep doing keep inspiring .

  37. Get a cpl cans of aqua net aersol hairspray and spray your chalk lines at important spots…shellac the lines in place

  38. how come this shows up in my flow now 2019? i watched it back in summer 2018. well its as good as it was back then, i might aswell watch it again 😀 and damn its a big shop. 8,960 ft²

  39. So, $45 per foot extra stem walls vs. the "standard" post construction. What is the gain or loss in benefits in doing the stem wall? Also, why is the stem wall so tall? Is that due to the weight it will be supporting or because of the climate and why? That's a lot of garage BTW.

  40. If you are ever worried about your chalk lines being removed either by rain or wear, get a can of Deft clear polyurethane spray and spray over your lines. It will seal them in and also spray away excess chalk from around the snapped lines.

  41. I binge watch your videos.. and I know I'm a year late or so.. but…. CHROME SOCKETS ON A 1/2 IMPACT!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. You mentioned rain was coming and would wash off your chalk line off. A trick I learned while doing tile work on cement board, get a can of lacquer (I use Deft brand) and spry it over your chalk line. Your chalk line won't wash off, you can run a broom over it and looks good as new! Someone else mentioned automotive clear coat as well. I'll have to give that a try. Hope this helps

  43. This is the ultimate way to build a home? In Germany we build the whole building in concrete….tahts just a big garden hut 😛

  44. On smaller projects like trim and miters I burn ten inches instead of a foot. Depends on the tape measure I guess…
