Reply August 16, 2019 at 2:29 am Great flat work Adam! And I thought I was the king of overkill! Lol… you should be able to pull loaded semi trucks onto that puppy!.. I just got done pouring a 50×100 for my new shop. 6" thick but only 1/2" rebar on a 12" grid..3500 psi. But mine has 12 × 24 grade beams around the perimeter sitting on 24 18" piers 12 ft deep.. i called the project slabzilla because it kept eating tons (literally) of rebar! Going to let it cure for a month before erecting steel.. Hope you get to convert yours to a building someday. It's definitely strong enough for it! We met at the Lindale Good of the Land festival but I'm sure you don't remember me… keep on truckin' Jeff. Reply August 17, 2019 at 2:22 am Look at these fools lifting the rebar quit being cheap and buy the feet spacers u put under it Reply August 19, 2019 at 3:39 am Unfortunately lifting reinforcing steel as concrete is being placed without proper chairing is a bad practice. It leads to rebar either being too high or too low in the slab. Plus one on the use of the mechanical vibrator for proper consolidation. I love seeing that Reply August 20, 2019 at 1:26 am Nice work by the concrete guys there 👍👌 more space for the future is right 🙌😎 Reply August 20, 2019 at 2:08 am You should be at (AT LEAST) 500,000 Subscribers. I think that with the season change, this year, 2019, you will surpass that number. Reply August 20, 2019 at 2:09 am The man with the blue shirt is a Master Skreeter. Knows his stuff. The first cement truck driver. Um…. Reply August 20, 2019 at 2:28 am Wet cement only does what you tell it to do. If you "tell" it the right thing, it will serve you "forever". Especially with re bar and in Florida! 🙂 That will last as long as a bridge. (A well made bridge). I saw you take machine tools off your trailer on this driveway, before I saw this video. What piece of History. Adam Booth History. Ya, Adam; I'm Binging on your videos!! Hi, Abby!! Sorry. Mrs. Booth. 😉 Reply August 20, 2019 at 2:59 am The time lapse at the end was the icing on the cake. Wow. Silly Truck Drivers. Blue shirt guy. He deserves a RAISE! Reply August 20, 2019 at 10:51 pm Enjoyed this video… Reply August 21, 2019 at 8:52 pm американцы тупыеее Reply August 22, 2019 at 6:24 pm Forgive me but not buying the simplest and cheapest of tools to make the rebar sit above the ground an inch or two shouldn't have been that difficult. Homedepot sells the rebar chairs for like 20-30$ for a pack of 50. maybe even just a few pieces of solid wood would have been better than lifting the rebar, which would have then settled down to the bottom again. Idk, that just seemed pretty bad and yes I know the vid is old af. Reply August 23, 2019 at 3:24 am What was the cost? Reply August 26, 2019 at 1:12 am So satisfying 😊👌😏 Reply August 28, 2019 at 8:22 pm My sister lived there in Pensacola for a few years. Reply August 29, 2019 at 12:44 pm Do you know why my concrete is dark grey in color when I mix them on my own, with cement, sand and 3 quarter blue stone? I can't get the light grey color like the sidewalk concrete, ty Reply August 31, 2019 at 12:59 am I did this work as a young man. Thank god I got out of that trade. It will destroy your body over several years. I know, I have the relatives to prove it. Reply August 31, 2019 at 10:10 pm You just gotta' know, them concrete workers went home as tired puppies. That is one hell of a lot of concrete to work by hand, Reply August 31, 2019 at 10:24 pm New pad alone has a bigger footprint than my house! Reply September 1, 2019 at 10:33 pm Man on the float will wear out his back. There should be a better way. Reply September 3, 2019 at 12:06 pm howd u get the fuckin board out that seprates the slab and ramp Reply September 6, 2019 at 2:05 am Wait… I thought you said this was a shop slab. That shouldn't have a broom finish. Whenever you roll something around it's going to bounce all over the GD place. He should have hit that with a power trowel and burned it in nice. And that outside footing should have been 12" wide minimum to carry the weight of the shop walls. Oh well. I guess ya'll just do it differently out there. Different strokes for different folks I guess.edit:And I hate to be a party pooper, but wtf? He didn't even strip that step and face it when he was there. And as far as that death valley drop down to your carport… I'm assuming he offered to form a step there but you told him you didn't have the money for that??? It would have been so much better to just have him do it while the rest of this got poured. And check it out… I'm not totally ragging on the quality of work. I think they did do a very good job for what they did. I'm just saying the quality could have been a tick higher. And I'm comparing that to what I would have done with my crews.
