Looked over the pad and saw a few places where the top of the concrete had totally set before they ran the power trowel, therefore, it is what it is now. They had 3 power trowels there and the first two would not start, so by the time the third one was going it was a bit late to get a nice finish. Nothing too terrible, just not as nice as it should have been. They did use a retarder since it was 100F that day.

That's a big floor to do with one trowel.
They could have used all 3 of them if they had worked.

I expect that was their plan until 2 of them crapped out.

Here we are in 2021 starting to build walls for the shop. By the time he got the concrete in it was too late to build walls and set them up and put in trusses and sheathing before winter would hit. They did come back and snap chalk line and used a demo saw to square up the concrete that pushed out the forms due to no back fill on the forms.

We started building walls the 3rd week in April. It has been a wet spring here so we only got 2-3 days in a week framing. Now we have 5 sections so far. They range in length from 10' to 15'. He has a friend with a 20K goose neck trailer for my 12K tractor that is hauling my tractor out there this weekend. His tractor will not reach high enough to set trusses.

Good to see it happening again.
I noted green grass, every time I come down there, it ends up in winter or early spring.
Finally getting some warmth up here, I think the danger of a night frost is over.

I think we are past the frost danger now too. Finished up one wall from yesterday and started another one. Got it squared and the top run of OSB on. We are putting the top run only at this time to give more support at the top to make sure the lift points are well supported. Also to keep from having to install OSB off ladders on the 12' wall.

Good way to keep lift weight down and yet be able to work off the ground.

I noted today that the Wyoming shallots have started peering out of the ground, about 50% of them. The rest have a blanket over their heads yet...damn teenagers.
