The concrete truck arrived 20 minutes ahead of schedule, and took just over four hours to complete pouring. One of the concrete trucks hit a power pole at their depot which caused some delays, we had to wait for over an hour till we got the next batch of concrete delivered. This caused some concern as the previous concrete poured was starting to set, but thankfully the delay didn’t cause any issues. Turns out it was a blessing in disguise as the fish tank needed to be secured furthermore before more concrete could be poured around it.
No more hurdles were encountered, and not much more can be said about the happenings of the day, so here are some vids and pics to do the talking.
The estimated 36 – 40 cubic metres of concrete was underestimated as 51 cubic metres was used in the end. Sounds like we have a solid, sturdy base :) This is the first big milestone to complete, the next one is the roof going up.
No rest for Mattukta; onwards and upwards, literally.
