It's being poured! Updated*

I can't believe my husband and I ever thought of doing this ourselves, pouring cement is one tough job! Now that I see the professionals doing this, I'm glad I get to sit back and watch.

The cement will be dry in 2 or 3 hours but it still needs to be left alone for a week. I will definitely need to rope off that area, I can so see my mailman hopping up those things.

The cement guys are still outside doing the finishing touches, I'll take more images when they are done.

*It's done!

They look really nice, it is going to look so much better in a week or two when everything is completely dry and ready to walk on! :P

Just out of curiosity, are you planning to put anything on the ground around the circles?

Jenn Ski said...

In a week we can take off the wooden frames and fill dirt right up to the circle rims. I plan on putting down grass seeds in the spring once the ground is all level.
