Possibly, but in 80-100 years I won't be around to worry about it If properly treated posts are used, site preparation is done with ground sloped away from building and gutters with piped off downspouts are used the post can easily last past 100 years. I also went for the 2' overhand all the way around which keeps the water away.

how thick was your slab? It's hard to tell from the photos.

There is no build thread but here are some more pics. It is 40' x 48' x 16' eaves.
I want to do pole style construction but the fact that we actually get winter weather here, I am concerned on how to do the slab properly. I don't plan on keeping the space heated, so it is possible that the dirt under the slab could freeze.

It doesn't matter.
I have a pole barn in MN (we get plenty of actual winter)1/3 of it gets heated and the rest does not.
The slab in the unheated portion is almost 20 years old now with no issues.
No insulation under it just compacted gravel/dirt mix. That building does have a thicker outer ring of concrete in the slab because the posts are set on the slab rather then through it.
Pole barns are pretty much the standard for outbuildings here and most are not heated. I haven't ever heard of a slab problem related to ground under the slab freezing.

What is your concern?

Most every farm around me has a pole barn of some sort. They're usually not heated and have slab floors. But, they're probably at least ~8" thick, to support their machinery. The best buildings I've seen are Morton. Take a look through their gallery. You'll see plenty that aren't heated.

Came across this guy's build of a shed into "his" motorcycle heaven. I like it, not over done or ultra hard to attain. Nice choice of bikes too IMHO

I believe the builder/owner is an inmate and he posted that earlier in this thread.

The only issue with the setup is the floor. I have the Race Deck floor as well and the problem is that when you deploy the kickstand or center stand, it will gouge or leave a dent. The modular pieces are plastic and while they will support a car, without leaving a mark...rubber tires and weight distribution, but a motorcycle, it's weight concentrated on the kickstand/center stand, just doesn't work.
That's the downside of the plastic, modular system. While it looks fantastic, the functionality, especially if you intend to use a floor jack and jack stands for a car, takes a major hit.
You can work around it by using a piece of plywood placed under the floor jack/jack stands, so not a big deal, but I wish the Race Deck stuff was a bit tougher.

Wow!

I have been looking for a website like that for a long time...thanks for sharing it.

I have it book marked in my favorites now, because its gonna take a long time to look at soooo many great pics.

I have a contract in on my 30 x 42 x 14 building right now (permit approval stage) so Im just in the hurry up and wait mode....being the middle of winter I have all kinds of time to dream and decide how I want to configure the inside and this website is giving me all kinds of wonderful ideas!

Thanks again.
