Pouring Concrete and Drinking Cava

Friday was a near perfect day for concrete pouring. A little cold at first, but by the time the concrete lorries arrived it was warming up nicely.

The pile caps are all tied together nicely.

The first lorry arrives. Disapointingly they didn't pump the concrete because of equipment availability. One of the snags of living on an island! The concrete was poured into the dumper, then the digger used to bucket it in to the beam.

Half the long run done. Plenty of "watchers" on hand to use the poker to get the air out. The Driveway will take a bit of cleaning up now!

The finished ring beam. Order says the house is a postage stamp and thinks the kitchen is way too small.

Another view of our tiny new house.

And now the start of the celebration for completing stage 1. Only three more to go.

Always look small in ground with any kind of strip found or ring beam. Slabs not so much

The reaction from my other half when the slab was poured was that the house looked very small.  As soon as the frame and stud walls went up she commented that it was absolutely massive.  No idea why houses seem to look small when they are just at foundation level.

Because you see it in the context of the landscape?
