Friday morning I went to the lot and did a pre-inspection inspection. I saw that the wall forms were now complete, except for the panels removed so that the inspector could see all the gorgeous rebar.
And it really was something to behold.
Notice how this tall wall has double duty rebar both vertically and horizontally, but
this short section has but one layer.
It was while looking at this short section of wall that I began to wonder.
I wondered how they would stop the flow of concrete once they filled up the lowest step?
Everyone knows that all kinds of stuff flows down hill.
Doesn't it stand to reason that the concrete will come down and just keep on coming? I don't see a lid on this lowest step, do you?
Well, soon enough the inspector came -- and left -- and then the pumper truck arrived.
They started pumping concrete in right here in the corner.
