Default Concrete Guys...ballpark me a 24 x30 slab

oh knowledgeable concrete dudes, guesstimate the cost of a 24 x30 concrete slab. this will be for a small single story cottage/cabin at a nearby lake, basically, a living room/kicthen area, a bedroom, bath, and utility/pantry/storage room.

a mobile home sits on the site now, it will be hauled away or dismembered. the build site is level. the soil is sandy, gravel. the site drains well, and is 30 feet above the lake. the building will not be heated in the winter, except the occasional weekend. In this part of the country the temperature ranges from -20* to 110*, not every year but those are the extremes.

I am currently getting names of area contractors who live in that area, and want some idea of what to expect. I also don't know if just a slab will be sufficient or footings with the slab would be better. TIA

That's 9 yards at 80 sqft per yard. You will need footers and something more than the 4 inch thick since it will be a load bearing pad. I just had a parking space about that size done, cost $1,350. I'll SWAG your cost will be twice that.

If you're gonna put a roof on you better put footings in. Where your water coming from, and electric. Where's the sewerage going? Bill

Probably the same place the mobile homes went.

A 12"x12" perimeter footer, rebar, wire, wash rock, clay packing base, plastic, and labor should put you around the $5k mark.

Crete here is right over $100/yd tax and delivered with fiber added. Figure 13 yards or so, a buck or two a sq/ft to form and finish (maybe more). 20 yds of clay $300, wash rock $400, metals, etc. should get you close to that amount.

water is rural municipal on site already, will need to be dug up and moved slightly, pieced out and up thru slab. electric is aerial, then drops down the pole to meter. pole will need to be moved about 5 feet. the septic is old but fully operational. I will need to dig it up and replace the pipe to the tank. this would be the time to do this.

Not familiar with winter in Ill. but if you have winters like us if town allows do a monolithic trench slab. If grade is flat frame with 2x4's and dig a 12" wide 3' deep trench perimiter. Depending if soil stays in tact expect to use between 21 to 25 yds of concrete. Some will say its overkill most haven't a clue. Doing it the right way you will never have a problem and for a bit more work and money and being its your home its worth it.

I think you guys run on the same international code set as we do in NY, due to size and the structure is not heated, it will need to have a full frost wall installed down to below your local frost line.

Driveway in front of new garage and sidewalk running down the side of it.
$3.00/square foot.
This covers everything except the ground preb (digging it down to the proper depth and making it level).

24x30 = 720
720 x 3 = $2160.00

Mine is getting poured on Tuesday.

Floating slab, rebar, including fill, finish, and backfill about $3200. That's a complete job first scoop of site prep to backfill as long as there isn't a whole bunch of crazy plumbing in the slab and the site is reasonable flat. If the site is a big hill or something that would require multiple loads of fill that of course would start to add up.

I forgot to mention If I was doing this in my area we would get about
4,500 for this.

RED flag on OLD septic systems, if you redo that house/foundation, you may well have to update that septic system.....

code vary, but they catch you on that sometimes....I know Maryland does....

some times you can NOT put in a new septic system due to updated codes, especially when replacing the structure....

my SWAG on the slab, ready to go....8000 bux.....

I"m move the slab, leave the utility pole.....

get caught up on the codes/requirements in your area before you get caught up in something cleaning out your wallet.....
