Concrete Today!

Yesterday was 80 degrees and breezy.  It was 38 degrees at 7a.m. this morning, and overcast.  The perfect day for pouring concrete, they said.  It was also pretty windy, so the wind chill was just over freezing, but it did warm up a little throughout the day.  Still, they probably would have preferred a cloudy day without wind.

There was a steady train of concrete trucks and the forms were filled by 11a.m.  They worked on the concrete all day and had all the forms off by 4p.m.  They were still smoothing when we left a little later. 

The concrete will cure for a week and they will start erecting the metal frame on the 13th.

In the below picture, the living space is on the left side.  The plumbing on the far right is the sewer connection and plumbing for a travel trailer.  The square forms in front of the slab are piers for the porch posts.
