The Cement Workers

So Monday afternoon the cement guys arrived.  The weather was cold and damp so I was especially surprised to see them.

Of course they came just a bit before nap time so the kids were pre-occupied with the guys not picking up toys which is the usual pre-nap time activity.  The dump truck came and unloaded gravel…that was fun for them to watch.

The poor guys were constantly being watched by little eyes.

Once they left I could see how the sidewalks will be shaped.  Right now the forms are just down.  I’m not sure if they will be pouring cement tomorrow or the next day.  Right now, I think tomorrow but we’ll see.

Here is the one from the front door to the sidewalk.  It’s wider at the step and then narrows so that it will be the same 4′ width that the sidewalk along the street is.

Here is the shape of the sidewalk that will go from the front porch to the garage door.  Hubby and I had labored over this shape.  I finally said just ask the cement guy.  He does this every day.  We did and this is what he came up with.

We really like it!

We’ve anxiously waiting to have the actual cement.

I can’t say enough good things about our cement guy.  We highly recommend him and he’s well worth a wait.  He’s good, fast, and VERY accurate in his work.  I’ll show you more once I have more to show.

    They did an excellent job with the design. The bed against the house is wide enough to balance the house and the curved corner adds interest.

    I like the design of the sidewalks. They’re going to look great. My eye was caught by the little girl in the pink shirt looking out the window. From the back, with her size, hair color and hair style, she looks like my granddaughter at that age.
