3 bags is DanG good estimating!


Better a little too much then not enough.
You think I would learn by now. I don't do a lot of concrete work, but when I do after I am finished I say "next time I do this, I should have something formed up in case I have extra mud. I never seem to remember that BEFORE I start the job. But this time my son thought of the ramp by the back door and whipped up those couple of boards while I finished up the main job and started cleanup. Of course later that night I thought of 5 places I could have done. 
 When I estimated the job, I calculated 35 bags. NYBHH gave me 6 bags he had which I used about 85% of (these rest had hardened up). So my son picked up 30 bags (he wanted to get 40 to hit the discount, but I stood firm). Both of us are glad he didn't get 40. But I really only was 2 bags off, which is about where I like to be.

SO as promised early in this thread (I nearly forgot), here is a shot of that pocket with the cross bar I anchor below grade before we poured. I didn't expect to need it in just 3 weeks, still a tad green down there. We had to pull a dead flat bed dump into the shop to remove the engine and this was a chance to try it out. My son's receiver winch was chained to the bar for a quick and dirty solution. It worked like a charm even though the concrete still needs some time.

Now that you put in the ramp at the door you will trip before the step up at the door! ;D

Great project!

I am still getting used to the ramp, but I like it. The floor pocket is very handy.
