It was a great day to pour concrete. Everything went well today – Hector from Larson Steel was on time this morning as was Chris from Clausen Electric.
Completing Trim Work in the Basement
We needed to cut the excess bolts off the baseplates in the lower level, which hold the steel columns in place. Hector Guerra was on time early this morning and Bryan helped him to cut the tops of the bolts off. As well, Chris from Clausen Electric came by and installed the conduit and fixtures in the lower level by the exposed concrete wall.
It was good to stroke those two items off ‘the list’.
Pouring Concrete in the Garage
We poured the ground floor in three sections. First, we poured the section at the front of the house, under the master suite which will be covered by hardwood flooring. Then, we poured the rest of the ground floor, except for the garage. Today, we poured the garage, which is 20 ft by 20 ft. All of this concrete contains 70% slag.
The Graniterock truck showed up right on time and we ‘tailgated’ the concrete into the garage. It was poured within 30 minutes and then Bill Brown’s team finished the concrete.
We decided to use colored concrete so it will match the rest of the house (i.e., Harvest Gold).
