Floating Slab For A Garage

Holy cow! it sure does take a long time to load this page. Thanks to everyone telling me to WAIT!
I'm considering on building a 22'x 28' garage in an area where the soil is
mostly sand. The climate is such that frost goes down 3 to 3.5 feet in
the winter. The site is not near water, and the water table is 100+ feet
down. Does anyone have thoughts on the success of building with a
floating concrete slab? That is, a slab that has a nominal 4 inch thickness
tapering to 8 inches thick on the perimiter. Wire would be used
throughout, with rebar on the perimiter. 6 bag mix.
Thanks in advance.
