I’ve formed up a little walkway leading from my garage pad to porch steps. 4’×40′ It’s an “L” shaped side walk and I put a radius at the tail end rather than just have a 90° turn (going for looks here).
Here is my problem.
I’m needing little over 2 yards, enough to fill the form and account for waste. But with my full time job I only have time to pour on the weekend. To get a truck out I’d have to pay 500$ to get them to just open on saturday, another 150$ for not buying the minimal 5 yards they require on top of ~90$ per cubic yard. So around 900$ for a truck.
I need 100 80# ready mix bags to get the concrete I need(3.50$/bag bought inbulk). Is this even possible to pour and finish with out co-joints? 2 young men with experience in concrete but I’ve never had to deal with this many bags. Would I be ahead to run 2 mixers at once to speed the process up?
I’ll have joints on 4′ centers, should I try to pour 12feet, go back to finish that and throw some expansion board in where a co joint could form?
Or dump 100 bags in the form, add water and get to whipping? Im at a stand still
Is this even possible to do and have it look acceptable?
