Concrete accomplished!

I have poured the concrete. After much muddling about in my mind about how to mix and transport 120 lbs of concrete, I ended up just slitting the bags open right in the wheelbarrow what brung 'em to the backyard, and running the hose in there.

Mix with shovel.

Shovel into bucket.

Dump bucket into form.

Repeat several times.

Simple concrete form in stairwell, filled with wet concrete</a>

Note my sophisticated concrete form made out of leftover plywood and duct tape. The concrete I bought EXACTLY filled the form, once I scraped every last bit of it out of the wheelbarrow. Reminder to self: concrete is EXTREMELY DRYING TO THE HANDS.



The worst is over. It really is. Now I can just finish painting and clean up. Basically. I hope.
