    Haha no he did a good job just took forever but I think he mostly does side walks and stuff. I just know guys who have done 8000sqft houses in a week and hes took two weeks for this and we havent had rain in like almost a month so that excuse doesnt work for him.

    Maybe it was supposed to rain and he was being careful:rolleyes:

    Did he use and drain-tile or waterproofing on the concrete?

    You are good with the bobcat, nice work:)

    How can he make any money if it took him 2 weeks? I worked with the best concrete guy ever on the last addition i dug last week. Every one i dig i will try and make sure he does the crete, and he said vice versa for excavating.

    A small foundation job like that would only take a contractor 2 days at the most. A day to do the footings or next day form and pour or they can do footings and walls at the same time.

    There are foundations that do take a month to do because of the complexity they also take 30 yards of concrete for the walls.

    The only thing I'd rip on Hoeman for was the color of his trucks.:p

    We won't hold the whole Illinois thing against him.:)

    A 30 yard pour would be a tiny house, The addition he showed is over 10.
