Concrete Pour: Garage Slab, Retaining Wall, & Column Footings

How did those trucks get up the driveway?
The first of two back-to-back days of concrete.  My poor neighbors.  6:30 am and these rigs are sitting outside their windows with giant diesel engines chugging.  We need to do something nice for them.


Today is a good warm-up run for the most important pour of all: the main house slabs. 

Garage Slab

The boom pump sure makes the placement of the concrete much much easier.  Puts it exactly where you want it, with no wrestling a writhing 100 pound hose.
Tight Maneuvering

Pour went very well.  Looking forward to tomorrow.
