Concrete, The Final Chapter

It seemed like we would never be ready for the pour, but Friday the 13th was the day.  Good luck for us!!

The troughs are ready for filling, looks like we will have a goodly amount of re bar in our beams.

Manoeuvring this pipe was not an easy job.

Seen from another angle, this shows how large a job it was to fill those troughs.

The troughs are filled and the floor joist connectors are in position.

After what seemed to be weeks of watching the concrete set, we see the finished product.

Concrete 4

The slabs have been poured.

And smoothed.

The metal forms for the upper beams are in place.

We have electrical power to the property.

Concrete 3

A quick update as how the building is coming along.

End of April shows the base beams and columns are done.

Kind of looks like a high rise will be going up.

The beginning of May shows a delivery of bricks with the sand truck backing in at the same time.

The sand was used to fill two sections, then covered with heavy duty plastic, which was then covered by re bar and tied into the beams.

That's it for now!!
