    Default The Pour

    Today was the big day for us on the new house. They finished the forms and started pouring concrete around 3:30 this afternoon. I didn't see them all but I counted at least 10 mixers coming and going. Somewhere around 40 yards of the stuff. I think frost laws are in effect, so they can't carry a full load. Fortunately for us, the ground dried out somewhat so they could manuever pretty well. Backhoe was there, but never came off the trailer.

    Weather was great during the day, but now it's snowing pretty hard. Suppposed to get several inches tonight plus another 6-12 inches of lake effect tomorrow. Odd winter for sure [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Kevin, once again I was right by you with yet another trip to Detroit today. I hate the up and back in one day! I got to play in the snow this morning and evening though, so it was worth it I guess [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thomas, not sure what a single load of concrete runs around here. I can only tell you what a complete foundation runs, including towing service for the mixers [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    The basement and garage floors will be poured a bit later. There is some plumbing to rough in in the basement beforehand.

    I'll keep the pictures coming as long as there is something worth taking. This morning I swung by there and there was nothing but snow [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    <font color=blue>are you going to fort wayne home show this weekend?</font color=blue>

    Funny you should mention that. We're thinking about it. We went last year and it was an impressive show. The only thing I'm apprehensive about is the crowd.

    You going? I'll meet you at the TBN booth [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Don't know what the cost is elsewhere, but we paid a little less than $500 for a load (8 yards). We actually only used 14 yards, so I think one truckload was 8, and the other was 6. The cost seemed to be tipped toward the cost of coming up the hill more than the cost of the concrete, as we had a small pour a couple years ago that was only 2 yards, but the cost was about $300. That's quite a range ($62/yard for big pours, but $150/yd for small pours).

    Rob,

    How is the house coming? Now that the foundation has been in for about three weeks, how are things progressing? In about 3-4 weeks we should be underway as well. Just working on the finishing touches for plans and builder info.
