I just noticed this as I was getting ready to upload an image. I have a 3 gig limit on my blog size. I am using 14%. I guess that’s not bad after over 7 years of blogging. So lets say 15 years is 30%, then I should be running out of space in about 50 years. Oh dammit! One more thing to worry about.
I need to extend our driveway by 26 and a half feet. It’s 11 feet wide and 10 inches thick. I’m going to do the wood and the rebar myself and then call a concrete truck. I have some questions:
How close to the edge of the concrete does the rebar have to be?
What about grass and weeds on the dirt where I pour the concrete?I assume the concrete will kill any vegetation, but will it be detrimental to the concrete?
Someone said 10 inches thick is a lot of concrete, and I could fill it in a few inches so I’m only pouring about 4 inches instead or 10. If I do that, what will happen when I take the wood away? Will my fill be able to come out from under the concrete?
More questions and pictures to follow.
Today is a holiday here. There is an election. I can’t wait till I can vote.
I can’t help you with the driveway. We had our driveway repaved a few years ago with asphalt. The workers did not make it very thick.
Aren’t you going through a lot of trouble just for your car? Just throw some gravel down and call it a day : ) About that tea…….
OMG!!! you only need 4!! The wire rebar fits to the boards that are outlining the driveway, then pour the concrete. It would cost you a bloody fortune to pour 10 inches thick…were you joshing us?? Hope so….debbie
Good luck with the driveway. What did you think of the election?
