Step 60 - Building an A/C Screen Wall Clada had to trim the dwarf ficus
bush since it had grown over the a/c pad.
Chip drilled holes for the rebar, and then he had to cut the rebar to
the proper length.
Chip built the interior wall first; then he installed 6-inch snapties,
and next used epoxy to install the
rebar into the concrete. Chip
borrowed a heavy duty steal bender from a friend so the could bend the
rebar around the corners. The steel is completed.
Chip constructs the outer portion of
the form wall.
braces the wall well, so we won't have any bulging when we pour.
Chip (AKA The Bearded One) is pleased with the results.
Unfortunately we don't have any pictures of the concrete pour...
we were too busy wheeling 5 gallon buckets of concrete over to the form
and pouring them in by hand.
We were exhausted by the time this wall was done--we handled over 40
buckets with just the two of us!
