Thickness for concrete in aisles and stalls?
Just getting to the stage of putting concrete in our barn ... the stalls are supposed to have a 6" concrete base of 1' x1' with a hole cutout for the corner posts.
We priced out 6" concrete for the entire barn, but wonder how overkill is 6" ?
Tossing around the idea of using forms to frame 6'' concrete just for the perimeter of the 8 stalls... is that alot more work, or will really save money?
Then how much am I going to spend on gravel/packing to 'level up' the stalls' flooring height?
I was going to use Comfort stall mattresses , but not sure they need to sit over 6" concrete, just a level surface.
What do you think will work?
