A Before Dawn Start to the Day

My curtainless back bedroom faces the build site in the back meadow. I was rather surprised when a vehicle and a concrete truck pulled up well before 7, while it was still pitch black outside. We had not been told of the intended start time.

The pour started promptly, by the light of several vehicles’ headlights, tho it was light by the time I made it outside.


The pour and initial smoothing went quite rapidly. Our foreman was quite proud that we had exactly the right amount of yardage for the slab and a drainage fix in the front of the house.

The concrete finishers will return later today for the finishing touches. Donna plans to use the polished concrete as her floor, with an epoxy coating.

I had our crew install curtain rods in my bedroom before they left today. I should prefer not to be discovered while still abed.
