    I have already noticed my mowing time has been cut down a little already. lol


    I have always wondered about that. The outside seems dry and ready for traffic but it is common since to know that the middle isn't ready. That might explain why the exiting concrete was 9" in places and WAS CRACKED!!! I find that hard to believe but it cracked. I figure a big heavy truck has pulled upon it one time or another but the entrance driveway ISN'T cracked. ???

    I think we did a 6 inch for our driveway and walk way to the house, and about 10 inches for the patio. We could literally park a tank in our driveway if we could get it up the asphalt. There's 2 cracks total. Both of them are where the concrete is thinner and the driveway one is where we forgot to put more rebar down first.

    Hey Marland, Just think of the gas you'll save with a smaller yard. Now you can use an old school reel mower.:D MMG

    No Pentastar.... I wasn't here during the pour. lol

    32 yards later!!

    There was a whole crew early in the morning but two guys stayed behind to finish the floor in the shop. There was no wind or sun on the shop floor so they stayed here 12 hrs to get it done. Then had to come back this morning and cut the concrete.

    They are the best in my area by me and others. They do very nice work. He might pour yours if you wanted. He said he has to go to Washington D.C. area for a laser screed pour next week.

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I'm still doing the Curly shuffle. lol
