« Part 23: progress in slab lines Part 24 of First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw series Part 25: progress: STAGE 4 »

On the day the slab was poured the crew arrived at 7am. I had been working on the final placement of the washing machine and water lines starting at 6. The crew arrived while I was still messing with the lines. I did not finish the placement until 8:30. That is to say, I held them back about 1/2 hour. No worries. It took 3 guys and the pumper wrangling the hose. The yardage was 21 and 1/2 yards. That is enough for a 2000 sq. ft. 4” slab. My slab ended up being 8” thick with footings that, on average, were 20” deep and 24” wide.

In these pix the pour progresses through the first 10 yard truck.

The pictures below depict the next 2 trucks of material: 1-10 yard truck and 1-1 1/2 yard truck. I also have added pictures of the ongoing flat work finishing through the final stages of hard-trowleing.

Note the power trowel/whirlybird.

The drain line is for the washing machine. Working requires that rags get really dirty. Some are simply disposed of while other are definitely reused. I would rather not wash them in the machine doing my daily washing but up till now had no way of adding another washing machine. As I stated previously, I will get my hot water from and on-demand water heater.
