i'm not afraid to work in the heat. The way I see it when you are sweating that means you are doing something.

Its been a long time since i have updated so here are some pics from a two jobs we did over the fall. Work has been real slow so I dont have much to share. These pics are from a fence job we did.







I didnt get any pics of it coming down because literally it fell down with one touch of the hammer.


The customer did not wont us to replace th posts so we did the best we could to straighten them out


the finished product

The work you guys do looks great. My question is where did you find a tow-behind mixer? I've never seen one down here. Pretty neat concept when you only need a piece load.

Theres a local outfit here that rents the mixer and loads it and mixes it for you at a very reasonable price...Its convient if you only need a yard or two..
Looks good, but is your WWR laying ontop of your gravel? Maybe you pulled up in your concrete when you poured it?...
Another question, why did you broom finish it before edging and cutting your control joints in?
Also, did you use fiber board atleast on both ends connecting the walk to the pre-existing concrete?

We got the mixer from our local rental yard. They have a mini bach plant in the yard and load them with up to 3 yards. We pulled the mesh up up as we pored the concrete and we put fiber bord at both ends and in the middle. We put the broom finish on after we edged and jointed it the first time and then re edged and jointed it again for the picture frame look.
