Ok, so my remesh arrived today with the setting chairs and I picked up the tie wire and mark out paint, looks like I will have heaps to do this weekend! so the plan will be to drill set in all the rebar to the existing garage slab and the new side footing, mark out the chair and height set locations before I slide the remesh into place. Then I have to finish the formwork along the footing wall ready for the concrete pour on the 28th. As a side project to this I also have a bit of concrete work to do around the back door area of the house, because I get a new workshop the Wife gets a new deck covering the entire area between the house and the workshop, so because I have planned drainage under the deck, it has to be concreted under it, lucky for me most of the area has already been done! anyhow here are a couple of pics including the small old deck I had to remove before and after.

Ok update time, finished setting all the rebar into place yesterday, so today my neighbour came over and helped me set the remesh into place then I added the chairs ready to wire it all up (public holiday on Wednesday I'll do that then)  This Saturday the concrete will go in! I have hired a concreter to do this part and 3 of my neighbours are helping barrow the concrete (with the promise of Beer and BBQ! LOL)

Hi all, Well we finished the concrete pour yesterday and it came up Nice! There are some jobs that it is so worth paying a professional to do and screeding is one them. Had 4 of my neighbours come over and barrow so we were able to unload 8cubic meters of concrete in 1hour!
anyhow will take the formwork off next Weekend and give the whole area a good clean up so here's some pic's of how it all looks.

SWEET!
 And you sure got it right about screeting. That job SUCKS but with enough help it ain't so bad. So did you reward the neighbors with a beer afterwards? ;)

A beer? I hope there were multiple cases involved.

Ok so I'm waiting for the framing timber to arrive before I can move on so I've done a quick layout drawing for you to check out, plus a pic of the girls waiting patiently for the workshop to be done so they can have some attention! LOL,,,
