    I assume you're just pouring concrete where the evaporator goes. Is that purely for cost or is there another reason for only pouring the one section. I've just started building a 14x16 very similar to yours and was going to just pour the whole floor 4" thick over my compacted gravel. Now I'm wondering if I need to.

    I poured my whole floor and outside porch area at the same time. Took about 11 1/2 yds to pour 16x24 inside and 8x52 porch area. Glad I did it. Easy to clean and nice porch sitting area in the summer.
