Here we go. I'm buying the materials as I can afford them so this project may take a while.

Lookin good. The back of the form does look a little off. Could just be the way it lookds against the background though. Keep the pics coming as you progress.

ummm...looks like a 24x30 to me

D. I wish i was doing the same thing. I've wanted my own shop for some time now. Just need the funds to do it. I actually had some of the materials for mine but had to use them for something else so i'm back to square one now.

Keep the pics coming.

Dang Metal Man, how'd ya guess? LOL. I set the level with a transit. It's within 2mm and that's good enough for me. The back board does look kinda funky but I checked it three times. Hopefully have the concrete being delivered Saturday morning with a crew to finish it. I've done some concrete work in the past, home projects, patio's, porches, driveway, stuff like that But I'm hiring this one to be finished. I'm getting to old to be shoving wet concrete around. More pics coming as it progresses.

For the concrete trucks to get to my form they have to drive about 100 yards across a field. Almost two solid weeks of no rain and 100 degree temps have the field hard as a rock. I finally found a finishing crew that wouldn't charge me an arm and a leg.

Forms set and ready.............. check

Field dry and hard .................check

Finishing crew ready...............check

Cash in hand ........................check

Saturday concrete delivery......#!*!@

None of the local places are working Saturday because they don't have any big orders and won't fire up the concrete plant for 10 yards. Just my luck
