BEAUTIFUL MAINE FALL DAY FOR POURING FIRST SECTION OF WOOD PRAIRIE ICF SHED WALL. Yesterday started out a chilly 31oF, but by afternoon under clear and windless skies the temperature had soared to 70oF. A good day to make the first 10-foot concrete pour for our new Packing Storage Shed.
This shot is looking east. In the foreground is our former (and future) office area. Beyond the office is the connected expanding storage shed.
The red ‘Giles’ Concrete Pumper truck drove up from Bangor. The driver operates the maneuverable boom from a remote chest-mounted controller box outfitted with joy sticks.
The hopper on the Pumper truck was supplied by four local concrete mixer trucks which brought a total of 42 yards of redi-mix concrete.
Braces which keep the permanent ICF (insulated concrete block) forms straight and true double in supporting the planks for the work platform.
In a little over three hours the job was completed and the trucks headed back home.
One more additional 10-foot pour and the concrete work on this shed will be done. Caleb, Megan & Jim
