Pouring the concrete. Brud chose this company because the concrete is mixed on site and metered as it pours.

I've never seen the top of a concrete truck as I saw it from the upstairs window.

The guys looked pretty relaxed as the first concrete dripped from the chute.

The pace picked up as they plunged into the relay between two wheelbarrows.

It was great teamwork as two guys alternately dumped their wheelbarrows and two other guys pushed the concrete into place.

They spend about half of their time bent over like this leveling the concrete. My back hurts just thinking about it.

The pace slacked off as they finished up.

Greg stayed pretty late waiting for the concrete to set up enough for this final polishing.
