    Just wondering, it may be cheaper and easier if it is going to be in the back and not have the weight of cars and stuff on it. You could stand 2x6's on edge and build a subfloor to take up the difference. 2x6 and 1/2" plywood or OSB would be perfect.

    The deal is with that. The current slab isn't as big as the addition I'm making. I'm gona have to pour concrete anyways since I'm doubling the size.

    I would say go for it but the engineer in me tells me to tell you LOL
    to bond it. Scuff the original pad, and use an industrial concrete bonding agent that is intended for that purpose. You dont want it delaminating especially having water inbetween the two. This will be part of your indoor structure which will wreak havock on you later on during the winter months.

    Yes still lay a mesh but you could take it one step further and add a few anchor posts too keep the slab from moving just incase you have a delamination problem in the future.
