Prep work begins for pouring the slab on which our new addition will be constructed. The first step is to clear away debris from the rough plumbing and the digging of the trench. When you see one of these in your driveway, you know something BIG is happening.
Among the items of debris is this massive chunk of an old concrete patio, estimated to weigh more than 1,000 pounds. The crew was very careful when handling it.
This pile of crushed stone will be laid down as a base for the slab.
After the soil is leveled, the stone is laid down and compacted. A form is built around the perimeter to define the edges of the slab.
Tomorrow: The slab is poured.
