The next day saw several more truck loads of dirt delivered and smoothed out……
With only one incident - one of the dump trucks got stuck as he was turning around. Fred had to give it a push with his tractor.
Once the pad was leveled and packed down, a frame was built for the concrete slab. (The posts will support the carport roof.) This concrete truck had to have been the heaviest truck to ever go down our little road! Thank goodness he didn’t get stuck!
And, I thanked goodness that WE were not doing this project……I so respect the skill of these workers……
They waded around in this concrete…..
Raking it into place…..
Smoothing and leveling it off…..
And applying the finishing touches.
The concrete will need to dry for several days before it is strong enough to drive on.
