Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood. My old international got some bad diesel and wouldn't start. Double jumping it with the pickup and red truck to crank the crap through. Thought this was a cool pic of the clusterfleet

And a before shot of a back patio and pool patio. I swear I've hauled 3 trucks of these lame concrete patio blocks this season already. I hate them but they come up easy


Progress pics to follow

During
Decided to rip the wood joints out and packed with rca. Ripped the perimeter and did my borders and rca. Put in all that sand and laid 350SF with a helper yesterday.
Topsoil will be added after to grade it into the yard






Footing for bullnose. Screwed down lath and mortared down bullnose


I will be doing the outer borders on the pool tomorrow and hopefully finishing it tuesday.

thanks Krazy.

I have two skilled laborers full time and my dad is a school teacher and VP so he helps after school, saturday and vacations. During the summer my buddy floats in as a truck driver, operator, mechanic and labor as needed.

Just realized i never posted finished pics of that big brown patio and missed 2 others!

Work looks awesome I guess you get most of your work from referrals?

Toss a tarp under the wheelbarrows when dumping the sand - less clean up

Thanks Whiffy. My work is a mix of about 50% referrals, home advisor and craigslist. You know which i prefer. This is only my second year full time so I am very grateful that its taking of so well.
My solution to cleanup was buy another wheelbarrow lol. Debating adding asphalt chutes to the gate for when i just need to fill one or two. This truck revolutionized the way I work similar to when cavemen discovered fire for the first time. Every day I love it more (but keep a mental list of changes for the next one to create the ultimate)

I love my asphalt chute. I just have one in the centre but it's awesome. Park your wheel barrow under the chute and let'er rip. I tilt up the body up just high enough to get the material to flow. If you raise it up too much the material get's jammed against the tailgate or you open up the chute and you have an avalance. I have seen different setups from 1 to 3 or 4 chutes. I'm happy with 1, a must have for me on any truck.
