Here's a 7AM wake-up for you:
The truck had pulled into the backyard and right up to the back door. They quickly set up the chute to deposit concrete directly into the basement:
More chute assembly:
Goldie was very interested to watch the concrete zooming down the chute into the basement:
At the bottom, it was caught in a wheelbarrow:
The wheelbarrow was walked over to the hole, and the concrete dumped:
Then, they spread out the concrete and used the vibrating "donkey tail" to get it as dense as possible:
They were done with the three plugs in the basement in about 30 minutes. It went fast! That's the last of the concrete that needed to be poured under the house.
The last concrete bits around the house are the footings for the front stairs. The city inspector was out yesterday and gave the OK, so they drove the truck around front and started to pour concrete there. Goldie inspects the work:
More concrete wrangling:
Ahh, troweling the front stair to a nice, smooth finish:
It's nice to have all of that finished!
