A busy week - rocks and concrete


We brought our formwork on site today. We won't need it for a bit, but it will be helpful to move it now. We got our gravel delivered today, we will be using it early next week. We used bags of concrete mix to mix and pour our own concrete for the footing. We used roughly 70 bags or concrete just for our 4x8 footing. We set up the rebar pre-pour, and had lots of fun pouring our own concrete. We learned how much concrete is really needed for and area, and why it makes more sense to get a concrete mixing truck.

  1. Nice post! This non-explosive demolition agent is easy to use, cost effective and a safer option for silently breaking up hard materials like rock or concrete. Simply drill, mix and pour. Thanks for the sharing information.
