Oh I see, In your area are you required to use anchor bolts poured in the slab, or can you use a roto-hammer, and quick bolt?

As far as I know in my area (out in the country and on my land) I ain't required to do anything. This is just the way that my contractor friend does it

Well that works for me . Right here in my little (brother-n-law) county, they just about got it were you can’t do a thing for your self. You have to hire a contractor to change a light bulb!

Yea, I know what you mean! I think one of the biggest problems in the US today is over regulation. That, and that too many people know to much about my business. If "they" would just leave me alone I would gladly leave "them" alone.

That is why I am doing mine my way...before they annex my area. Right now, do what you want. Later, who knows? I do know that when and if we get annexed, you need a building permit for just about anything. It is 800 bucks too! They are raving idiots anyway.

Default Delays, Delays

My contractor was going to pour another slab today, remove the forms tommorrow, move to my job
Wed., and form my shop on thursday and Friday so he could pour next Monday. Well it's 29 here this morning and isn't suppose to get out of the 40's most of the week and here they won't pour unless it's 40 degrees and rising.

Guess well just wait and see

Cool Good News

My contractor says he is going to pour tommorrow, so they are still planning on moving to my little job sometimes on Wednesday.

The weatherman says we may get sleet or snow on Wednesday and for here that's almost a death sentence on outside work. We don't get "winter precip" here very often so we are not equipt to handle it. Things generally just shut down.

Once again I guess we will just have to wait and see.

All I can say is, Welcome To My World.

This time of year, the concrete biz gets really iffy. Just the nature of the beast. Sucks in the winter, same in the summer. Makes me wonder why I bother with it.

Be patient...it will come together soon.

If you are in the concrete business I have a question. My guy says that if I want a really smooth finish he recommended to use reinforcement wire and not the "fiberglass" reinforcement. Just wondering about your opinion.
