The only change here I would recommend is the use of pea gravel rather than small stone and you are good to go. Forget using mesh because 90% of mesh is placed under the concrete.

Yup, sorry, I was computing the footer and guessing at a 6" width. Should've known it would be 8", just wasn't thinking.

Have to watch pea gravel most of it won't meet hardness spec.

Nobody can really answer that question. Floor requirements will vary a great deal from town to town in the same area. Like where I live the soil is sugar sand and 20 miles west of me the soil is gumbo. You're better off getting specifications from your local government.

When you get specifications cement is figured by the yard, meaning enough cement to make a cube 3'x3'x3'. If the floor calls for 4" thick then you can get 81 square feet from a yard.

Hi, when you pour concrete on mesh, make sure
you lift the mesh with a rake as you pour. The mesh
has to be in the concrete to be any good.Ed Will

(quoted from post at 06:23:21 01/02/1Cool I'm debating on getting a garage this spring. It is used I would be moving it in. What I'm thinking of is 20 x 25. The heaviest thing I'll probably have in it will be my mm u. It will require a concrete floor and footings. How thick should I pour the floor? How do I figure the amount of concrete required to pour the footings? I have been in on pouring enough concrete at this point I can get it done just fine. Have access to a roller and a whacker. I'm not a professional by any means so I have a few novice questions but I can handle the dirt work and finish work.
First thing is what is the frost depth on average? footer should be below the frost line from what I remember. Even if you have no building code that you have to follow I would still check for recomendations. On my 24X30 i used 3.5 inch slab in a monolithic pour with the footer the footer. The slab is 12 in thich around the edges and 3.5 to 4 on the rest. Two #5 rebar's around in the footer and concrete wire in the rest. We have no frost to worry about here but you do there.
Check around for who does the best work in your area. Get a couple bids and have them specify what they will do. At least you will have an idea what the pros are thinking as well as a good idea on materials. You may find that its a good deal and have it done for you.

If it's not attached to your house you don't need a footing. What I did for my 26 X 38 garage was to use 2X6's for the perimeter and the main floor was 3 1/2 thick. This was 50 years ago and other than some cracks in the concrete it's still serving us well.
