Perth cottage New Build Day Five Concrete Pour

Perth Cottage New Build Day Five Concrete Pour
This was the day that the concrete for the foundations arrived. Delivery was by a big bowser from a local Perth Company. This was then transfered into a small dumper which buzzed around the site pouring the concrete exactly where it was needed.

David drove the dumper, Ian had the wellies on directing the pour and tamping down the concrete. Steel mesh reinforcing was placed in the foundations to strengthen them.The sun was shining all day, we even had to wet the concrete to stop it drying out too quick. A small frog was about to be entombed in concrete when all work stopped to save himm. He hopped away without a thanks! Cheek!
