June 15, Finally concrete!

Well, all the best laid plans…….   Friday was supposed to be cement day, but there was confusion with the ready-mix company and no conveyor truck available, so postponed to Monday.   Monday was to be a big day, both slabs to be done.  Again, two people had thought they booked the long conveyor, so all we had was the shorter one.  The good thing was that we did get the garage/workshop  floor poured and finished.   Had to tie up the last loose ends with encapsulating the brass splices in shrink tubing and tape, but everything was go long before the cement truck arrived.  Shawn the cement finisher showed up at 6:30 to take the special cement fiber to be added to the mix.   So a long day.  Below are pictures of the day’s activities.The crew planning the day.
