Set the alarm again for this morning, this is a bad habit. We were up early and pulled out right at 9am to head for Fleet Maintenance to have them look at the leaking radiator.
The guys should be here at 1 right after lunch and the concrete truck is due at 2.
The guys were here and Bills cousin also came as he is the concrete finisher. The truck rolled in at 2:08 and the concrete was poured and floated 45 minutes later. As soon as it sets up they will finish it and be gone.
|Ready to pour|
|The pour is started lots of activity|
|Setting the pitch to the drains|
|Floating the edges|
|All floated 45 minutes after starting. Just needs to set up a bit then finish with the power trowel.|
Up early again today and headed out to the bank and post office. I actually got to the post office before they opened by a few minutes. I checked the concrete before I left and it was hard so thats a good sign. Now to give it time to cure. I had some work to go over at court so I stopped in there for a couple hours and finished that up.
Our hot water boiler has been booming when it lights so I brought in the air compressor and vacuum to give it a good cleaning.
|I ordered a new one of these.|
|Pins in the edge of old slab to keep it in line with the new one|
|Lots of dust from cutting in the expansion joints|
The first of three trucks was on right on time and the 2nd and 3rd were waiting as the one before them finished up.
|First truck and all five guys swing into action|
|Bill manned the Bull Float to push down the stone and bring the cream to the surface|
|First truck is empty|
|Third truck is almost done|
|All done with a broom finish|
Bonnie came home from taking her sister to the Dr and we have an evening to relax.
No word on the radiator repair yet.
Slept in a little today. Bonnie was up early to take Alexus to the dentist. They got home just as I had to leave for my annual eye exam. Alexus has to have a tooth looked at and as always they dilated my eyes and I had trouble in the sunshine the rest of the day.
The guys were here and busy when I got home. They took off the forms from yesterday and were forming up the pad where we park the coach. This is the third day of pouring. Day 1 was 6.5 yards, Day 2 was 25 yards, and today is 11.5. Total is 42 yards. Most of the work is done for the contractors but Bonnie and I have all the final grading and seeding to to do all around the edges of the concrete. Plus I need to get some estimates on what blacktop will cost.
I worked a little on the camping club newsletter today. I will look it over again tomorrow and then get it sent out.
|12X50 Pad all formed up and ready|
|Steve cut yesterdays pours, boy is it dusty|
|2:27 truck one arrives and the pour begins|
|Almost done, ended up going 55 feet to finish the concrete on the truck|
|3:28 the pour is finished now to let the concrete set up|
|Ready to put the broom finish on|
|5:25 almost finished.|
Tomorrow the forms come off and then we just have to wait for it to cure and then seal it.
So thats about it for the beginning of this week. Thanks for Checking in.
