Pouring the Walls

Very exciting day! The concrete trucks came, and kept on coming. Once again, it was really interesting to see the process. At several points there were two trucks pouring, with a few guys working at each point. Then another would come along to level and smooth the top of the poured surface. After the concrete had set up a bit they set the bolts for the sill plate. It was supposed to rain that night, so I was glad to hear they used a quick-setting concrete. It was a REALLY good thing when the sky opened up right around 5. The guys were just finishing up when it hit. Whew!
The guys were kept busy once the trucks came!
