Embedded in the longit-udinal and transverse beams or supports of the foundation are the heads 16 of anchor studs 17 which rise from the bottoms of the depressed seats or recesses 13 and 14. These bolts enter openings 18 of the lower ends of the corner and intermediate posts, thereby holding the posts perpendicularly.

lt will be noted that the intermediate posts 7 have opposite faces provided with grooves 19 which receive the wall slabs of concrete 20, the lower edges of the lowermost slabs being engaged in the grooves 4 of the longitudinal beams or supports of the foundation. The corner posts have their faces, those which are at right angles to each other, provided with grooves 2l which also receive certain of the wall slabs 20. The lower edges of the lowermost slabs which engage with the grooves 21 also enter grooves of the foundation. In fact, the lower edges of the lowermost slabs at the ends of thev building enter the grooves 5 of the transverse beams or supports of the foundation. The hinged posts 8 each has a groove 22 on one face which receive certain other of the wall slabs.

In order to provide a window open- '25, 26 and 27 are provided.` These beams are arranged in rectangular formation and are connected by bolts 28 embedded in the top and base beams to enter the perpendicularv side beams to retain the beams in position. rlhe remote faces or edges of these beams 25,

` 26 and 27 have grooves 29, 30 and 81 for the reception of certain of the wall slabs. It will be noted that a door opening is similarly constructed with the exception that the base beam 26 is omitted and the side or perpendicular beams have holes or depressions in their lower ends to receive bolts 32 embedded in and rising from the foundation.

Rising from the upper terminals of the corner and intermediate posts and having their heads embedded in the posts are bolts 33 which enter depressions or holes in the roof beams 34 which converge toward the top of the roof and have their upper converged' termin als connected by similar bolts 35 to a longitudinal central beam 36. These roof beams constitute means for supporting a roof 37 of sheet metal, as in Figure 2, or of concrete which is constructed in sections overlapped, as in Figures l and 4, and secured to the beams in any suitable manner (not shown). Y

It will be noted that the lwall slabs are constructed with restricted upper and lower edges, as at 38, to permit the wall slabs to overlap in the same manner aslap boards to enable the wall slabs to shed the rain and snow and to prevent, to a substantial degree, the seeping lin of the moisture.

1n Figure 10, it will be noted that the posts 6, 7 and 8 have. double grooves 19 for the reception of the concrete slabs 20, thereby constructing a building with double thicknesses of such slabs.

The invention having been set forth, what is claimed is:

1. A concrete building structure comprising a base of angular formation consisting of longitudinal and transverse.V beams provided with grooves in their upper faces, with depressed seats at uniformly spaced points, the level of the bottom of said seats being the same as the level of the bottom of the grooves and the seats opening Vat the outer sides of said base beams, corner and intermediate upstanding postsl seated in said seats with their outer faces flush with the outer faces of the base beams, the posts being provided with longitudinal grooves in their side faces, wall slabs disposed in superposed relation between the posts and having their ends seated inthe grooves of said posts with the lower edges of the bottom-most slabs seated in the grooves of the base beams, and a roof supported on said'posts.

2. A concrete building structure comprising a base of angular formation consisting of longitudinal and Vtransverse beams provided with grooves in their upperfaces, with depressedV seats at uniformly spa-ced points, the level of the bottom of said seats being the same as the level of the bottom of the grooves and the seats opening at the outer sid-es of said'base beams, corner and intermediate upstanding posts seated in said seats with their outer faces'flush with the outer faces of the base beams, the postsbeing provided with longitudinal grooves in their side faces, wall slabs disposed in superposed relation between the posts and having their ends seated in the grooves lof said posts with the lower edges of the bottommost slabs seated in the grooves of the base beams, the wall slabs above the lowermost slabs each having its lower edgeV disposed in overlapping relation with the upper edge of the next lower slab, and a roof supportedon said posts. Y n

3. A concrete building structure comprising a basel of angular formation consisting of longitudinal and transverse beams Vprovided with grooves in their upper faces, with depressed seats at/uniformly spaced points, the level of the bottom of'said seats being the same as the level of the bottom of the grooves and the seats opening at the outer sides of said base beams, corner and intermediate upstanding posts seated. in said Seats with their outer faces flush with the outer faces of the base beams, the posts be-v ing provided with longitudinal grooves in their side faces, wall slabs disposed in superposed relation between the posts and having their ends seated in the grooves of said posts with the lower edges of the bottom-most slabs seated in the grooves of the base beams, and a roof supported on said posts, the base beams being, provided with 10 anchor studs embedded in the-.m below said depressed seats and said studs extending upwardly through said seats and into the posts.

In testimony 'whereof he aIiXes his sig- 15 nature.
