    Home Improvement

    Inbetween working full time, and being a full time administrator to this site Accadacca had a little time to slip away and help me out with a little concrete project in my yard. Much thanks to him, his dad, and the two finishers that showed up to make it all possible. It looks great!



    Here are a few before n' after pics:

    Looks nice! I have heard that concrete is pretty spendy right now do to a shortage. If you don't mind my asking what was the price per yard just for the concrete? I have a mud pit that I don't want to deal with next winter again.

    Nice job!
    I'm in over my head, so to speak, when it comes to concrete. I'd like to try a couple small projects this year, we'll see.....
    Here's how my basement turned out. 700 sqft of finish, netted two bedrooms with walk ins and a laundry room.
    I ain't very good at indoor pictures, but here goes:

    Concrete is a little pricey right now, but hey, at least its available. I had to wait 6 months just for concrete to become available.

    I had to pay a little extra because of it being a Saturday pour, but without the extra charge it came out to be roughly $95 a yard. All total it was close to 8 yards.

    Hey dude, your basement looks awesome! I like how the computer in your photo was logged into uutah...

    Nice job on the driveway!!

    Here's a few projects we've done so far. One living room, 2 bedrooms and a hallway. WHo the *#*$@$ wallpapers a ceiling - 7 times?!

    Kitchen is next - maybe in 2 years. I'm a anti-debt girl so it will take a while to gather the funds.

    Hey, I just might have an old disco theme in my basement! My parents took down their wood panelling, and it was truly the end of an era.

    Serious though, you could probably find some wood paneling today that would look bitchin'. (remember that word?)

    My wife i mean i pressured myself into tearing out the old deck and putting in a new bigger one, composite this time.

    It's a little lower to the ground than average but I'm going to put bench seats around the edges rather than hand rails.

    WOW talk about a blast from the past! That little blonde-haired kid in my photos has already graduated from high school, and that time seems like a dream. I still drive past that house sometimes since my parents live not far from there.

    @Sombeech - I'd love to see the rock in your retaining wall, but the image isn't showing up.
