    Anyone else notice they poured that shit on topsoil as well as an area that he just dug a stump out of? It’s gonna sink and crack and drop. SMH

    I could have done that job with 1 other person. Much easier when you man the chute and have a guy who knows what hes doing on the rake. Darby and fresno couple min,edge and swiped.

    So, you screeded one side, did you put elevation pins in? Maybe i missed that. Then you floated the rest on the slab, without scredding the excess. May i ask how you get a level pad? Or even a pad with pitch if you're not using elevation pins to screed by? 8' screed board, and an 24" pad. Someone help me out here.

    How much concrete slab would I need for a 20x24 shed?

    • Andrew Camarata
      Andrew Camarata  Month ago

      Get an app or something to calculate it. But if you do it 6" thick, you will need 9 yards.

      They didn't want J bolts, its harder do slide the pre-fab building into place. Its much easier to drill and bolt it later.

    That concrete is crazy...I think my local place mixes super dry? If you watch my slab pours for my new garage, you'll see when I get to screeding with my father. It did not smooth out. It took water + brushing to float and smooth. Watching your passes with that bullfloat was actually really irritating; how smooth and easy it was...Edit: I think this was a great DIY project. I get haters too. They can't seem to use any grammar, either. I didn't bother with footers or central rebar for an 8" thick slab of 6000lb. fiber mix. We also have no frost or moisture. Everyone's an expert, amirite?? Good job, friend!

    my first shop was a 12 x24 TO SMALL then went to a 24x24 still to small. now its a 50x100 cant get any larger until I rebuild my house witch is going from 2200 sq feet to about 900 but that will give me a lot more room for my shop.

  • William B
    William B 2 months ago

    Someone help me understand something. They spend that time holding up the wire mesh when they are dumping in the concrete to have it be in the middle of the concrete I assume for better strength.....then they walk all through the concrete to smooth it and and step all over the mesh so it’s back on the bottom?

  • hr 777

    Do you know about tamp the gravel?

    • Andrew Camarata
      Andrew Camarata  2 months ago

      Vibrating is more for vertical pours, like in a wall. That type of gravel does not need to be tamped.

  • George Lund
    George Lund 3 months ago

    For a young guy starting out...congrats! A couple questions: Why did you use a skidder w/ a grapple bucket to demolish the original shed when you have a small excavator w/ a thumb. The exc. will crush the builing like the skidder cant. Why did your crew only pull one strip across the wet crete & not the entire floor. Pulling w/ a straight edge is how you get a floor flat/pitched/level. You should brace your wood forms better; it looks like you got app. 6-8" of bowing on the side where your laser was. And lastly, why would you flatten out stone w/ a small exc. when you have a skid steer there. Plz realize the final drives on an exc are not the same as a dozer & are not designed to replace a dozer/skidder. Can be a costly lesson. Most importantly...it seemed the homeowner was happy.

    U guys ain't packing your foundations right in a hurry bran new houses should have no cracks in your concrete slabs plus instead of using a 4 inch use 5 and a half all u no if you're foundations r shit your house is shit not knocking your work but cutting corners just creates weekness in structure

    This is about the most incompetent group of people I've ever seen work any kind of construction? A 8" slab with no footers on loose gravel? Seriously! Then there was the visqueen being placed inside the forms. What the hell are you trying to protect the concrete from?! Not to mention, you didnt reinforce any of it. You just laid them on the ground and poured concrete over it! If I ever see you, all your tools will become ward of the state until you get some competence.

    Andrew if you will get an edger and go around the edge of your concrete slab it will keep the edge from breaking and being ruff.

    I wish you were able to tell the story of how those houses came to be between two major roadways. I mean, I know the roads where built after the fact...but I wonder if they were offered a resettlement, or if any of their land was bought out by the state for the road with no choice given. Just curious.
