New Siding Project - Part 6 - CONCRETE POUR DAY!

8-23-13

8:45am:   TODAY’S THE DAY!!  This morning, Harland’s brother Gerald and his wife Ramona are coming over to help with the pouring of the patio and sidewalk.

Here’s what the patio and sidewalk areas look like this morning.

Harland put more re-bar in the patio area since my last pic. He also repaired and covered the area where the old basement stairwell was. Water had leaked in behind and rotted the siding and studs. So yesterday he cut out the siding,

repaired the studs,

and covered the area with plywood.

Then he put up a piece of metal flashing.

This morning, he’s turned the hose on the patio and sidewalk areas soaking them down in preparation for the concrete.

Since I’m not home, Harland will be taking pics of their progress throughout the day and sending them to me.

I’ll be UPDATING THIS POST ALL DAY LONG, so check back often!

I’m so excited!!!

That’s my sister in law, Ramona wielding the shovel.

Here’s a pic of Gerald, my brother in law, finishing the patio.

Note the sidewalk supervisor in the window to the left of the door.   Everything has a Kitty seal of approval.

There was some leftover concrete on the truck, so Harland had them pour it at the garden shed entrance, which before was just gravel, but now is paved! Yay!
