We lucked out with some great weather for the slab pour, although one of our workers said that rain can help make the concrete cure better and stronger… This was an amazing operation to watch, as an impressive boom truck pumps the concrete into the forms, and then the crew immediately smooths and trowels it to a beautiful finish. At one point we had two cement trucks at a time feeding the boom! Tomorrow they will set the rest of the forms for the retaining walls for the north and east sides of the house, and the plan is to pour those walls on Friday. Weather permitting, actual framing will begin next week!
