James arrived with his backhoe right at 9am this morning and proceeded to drive it off his Big Tex gooseneck trailer . (click on photos to enlarge)
We waited for Juan and his crew to get here to start the foundation prep. Shortly around 10am they arrived and Juan took James backhoe and started digging the foundation for the walkway and patio.
While Juan was doing this his two workers started shoveling the dirt out of the area.
It wasn't long they started laying the forms for the patio/walkway.
After the prep for the foundation they cut and laid the rebar wire.
They then moved to the hookup site and prepared the 5'x5’ pad.
Here are the two sites that are awaiting concrete. Say is that the crew boss setting there in the background??
They were finished just a little after 1pm. We will order the cement Monday for delivery this coming Saturday where Juan and his crew will return and complete the job. We estimate it will take about four yards to do these two pads and a smaller pad over at the water well.
In the mean time Sandy is already talking about tables/chairs with an umbrella, flower pots etc. Did I say it was a little dusty around here today. Dusty doesn’t even describe it!!!
Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers
