Pouring Concrete

Pouring Concrete

This weekend, aside from spending time on the boat and watching my beloved Arsenal win their first match of the season at Newcastle, I poured new concrete footings for some of the lake house stair railing, along with pouring concrete to repair stairs that had eroded.

To pour the footings, I had to build some pretty wacky looking molds using treated plywood to prevent the concrete mix from spilling out before it dried due to the slope of the hill.

After carrying 1000 pounds of concrete down the hill and doing all of the work in crazy humidity, the boat and party cove felt especially refreshing!
