I'm working on the concrete slab for our retirement home. Forgot my beautiful wifes advice n didn't try n get the 2" thick pink board foam insulation early. Wasn't any in the state except for 300 miles away. Except for the ones that were 20 bucks a sheet more at a local place. Kinda like being over a barrel n get gouged.
Good fortune did shine through though,,seems lowes go a load over night. I was able to save 1600 bucks. If you all are planning on building on the cabins get your materials in. Beautiful wife is ordering electrical stuff from the net,, which I don't like. But holley molley when you live where competition for building materials is hard, getting the job done gets worse.
All squeeked by n we're rolling along. Hopefully I can get out to the cabin n finish all the major building stuff while the slab is curing.
Life in the last frontier, gotta go while the suns shining.
And that's all day long

Make sure that Sealant for the Concreate IS Applied after it is cured.

I had the concrete guy to do it for my slab and the Dork POOCHED IT. Came too early before full cure and used a Hand Pump Sprayer leaving weak thin spots and spots without any. The work to get that off and redo was a horrendous adventure.
