The concrete pour came out better than I dared hope. 14.6 cubic yards of concrete, I learned yesterday that one of those cement mixer trucks on the road can only carry 9 cubic yards. Two truckloads of concrete poured under the house yesterday.
The guys worked really hard yesterday, till almost 7PM. I took ’em a case of beer when I got home at 5. I told ’em to drink it all and don’t leave any left over, which they did. Of course, as you know, I don’t drink.
Below is a video I made this morning of my first walk on the dried concrete. Pardon the audio, I sound like a mumbling sleepwalker, which I am. Pre-dog walk, pre coffee, pre shower.
Today they start the block walls, I’ve mentioned several times that maybe they could have it done by New Years, yesterday I changed it to Christmas and for the first time, they confirmed that this was a possibility. They originally estimated end of January 2020.
Things are looking good today. Hope they’re looking good for you too.
