I have a customer that whats a garage add on addition to his mobile home. The MH is 28' wide.  The concrete slab has ready been poured and its 28' long, 28' wide and is 4" thick no footers just a floating slab. The guys that poured the slab did a poor job and is uneven and did not install anchor bolts.  Somebody with more experience please tell me how to go about this project. Thanks in advance
