Is that called monocoque construction? Is the footing poured at the same time as the slab?
By the way, did you get a survey done and have the surveyor place the building on the plot? Last thing you want is for a neighbor who is pissed off at you to sue you and make you tear the whole thing down because you are 3" too close to his lot line.
Don't know if try are going to pour it all at once or just footings then slab. I'll ask tomorrow.
As for the surveyor, no we didn't get one. But we are 2 feet from the property line. The property lines are pretty well defined.

I sure would check before any concrete is poured. In a local case a couple is faced with tearing down a 1.1 million dollar mansion because they ignore the advice that they were building too close to a property line.
Better safe than sorry. It's really better, in this case, to ask for permission than beg for forgiveness.
Setbacks are two feet from the side and 6 from back. I'm pretty sure on the property lines. In the front there is a pin(don't know the real term) in the sidewalk that shows where the property line is on one side. All we had to do was measure out from there to the other side and we have both. I'm not worried about that. Its defined without question.
Why the meter box and weatherhaed? Can you not run a sub panel from the main panel in the house and underground? How come emit is being run for a garage door opener? And bx for other devices... Excuse my ignorance for Florida electrical code requirements.
We're moving the meter there. Getting a new drop, then we're going underground to the existing box. That way there are no cables above the garage and it looks cleaner. The thinner conduit near where the garage door opener will go is for the lights that will be placed there. The garage door opener will have the thicket conduit.
Oh and we're in socal
