The pumper truck is here, the tools are all in place. Let’s pour this thing! Big rains in the spring delayed our start by a month. We have been itching to get started and finally after this concrete part is done we can truly begin our portion of the work. The guys have got more rebar in place to put into the holes for the master bedroom piers.
The man with the grey shirt in the middle with a belt on was the pumper truck driver. He had a wireless remote control for steering the boom and concrete flow controls. It was pretty cool. he could be right down there by them seeing exactly where they needed it.
They had to let it set up and harden a little while before they could go back to do the final pass on the trowling and polishing phase.
Now it has hardened enough they could remove the forms around the piers for our room. Also, the man with the red canister is spraying on a protective acrylic coating to reduce future water absorption.
The work is done for the day. Now begins the cleanup and going home.
Next time we will be getting ready for framing.
