WE WERE GOING TO DO A COUPLE OF THESE AT A TIME,
BUT ENDED UP DOING ALL OF THE ROOFS AT THE SAME TIME--WHAT A CHALLENGE!
constructed the guest bedroom patio roof first. Rather than
gutters, our design uses concrete parapets
constructed the pool patio roof, and then the foyer and hallway flat
mention we had some nasty rains while we were working on this phase?
We've added lots ot bracing and the electrical and plumbing have been
We're about ready--we postponed the pour a week to fix a few things,
plus the schedule pump truck caught
on fire and it would take a few days to get the parts replaced...
So we constructed a planter and added to a retaining wall since we had
the pumping this time since Trent was tied up with the boom truck--we
started with the retaining wall
We then dragged the hose to the guest bedroom patio roof, back to the
retaining wall, and then to the window seats
on site for this pour--thank goodness, because he discovered the hose
handlers stepped on some conduit and broke it;
fortunately, our fabulous electrician was on the North Shore and was
able to get by and repair it so we could continue pouring!
We had to pour two window seat
roofs, which meat dragging a heavy concrete hose all over the place...
IT GOT REALLY BUSY BECAUSE ONCE CONCRETE GOES DOWN, IT HAS TO BE
SCREEDED AND SMOOTHED!
Joseph was head
honcho for the guest bedroom patio roof Controlled
chaos--we even sucked our friend, Kevin, into helping
performer is The Concrete Cowboy, Tom, who has done most of our
flatwork! Everyone has to
work their butts off with the size of this pour....
We were glad to
get this one done--the rest of the pours are easy!
MISSION COMPLETE (for this phase!!!!)
And we even got
a planter poured....
finally the forms getted stripped...a very messy, sweaty job
