    Hi David. Loving the videos and thanks for taking the time to make them. I have one dumb question though, why do you call it a "funny trowel" Thanks again. Regards Colin

    Hi David! Great video! I have 2 areas in my home that I've been wanting to do this and I was told it would be too expensive. Reading the comments I see that it is less than I thought. Can you tell me how large this area was and how many cu ft of concrete you used? Thanks and keep up the good work!!

    David, I have a sunken concrete living room and want to level it.  Does additional concrete stress the foundation? Should that be taken into consideration and how would you determine if it could create issues?  Thanks so much.  Do you know anyone in Austin, TX area?

    Sunken living rooms are one of the best features ever put into houses. Watching this hurts my soul.

    I plan on doing this to my living room. Its a wood frame house. What kind of prep do you need to do the inside part of the exterior walls ?

    How do you get up the excess slop like at the lower right corner of 05:50…a sponge? Or chemical?

    Given the popularity of your channel, you guys should set an example by using the appropriate PPE when doing construction work (dusk masks, safety glasses, ect) Otherwise, good job, I love your channel.

    Great video. Can this be don directly over a tiled floor or do I need to remove the tile before pouring the concrete? Thanks in advance.

    Do you advise the use of some type of foam blocks to reduce the amount of concrete ????

    How long do you have to wait to lay vinyl flooring on top of a concrete filled sunken living room? (How long will it take to dry before laying flooring is safe?)

    Great video. Wish you were in my area, we'd hire you. But we now know what to look for when hiring this project out.

    Great video David! Thanks…Could you have raised the sunken living room with wood and cement boards instead of pouring concrete? I have a 2nd floor oval area currently has Saltillo tile which is sunken 6'' and a local guy tells me that he can raise it up 6 '' to match dining area with wood and hardibacker on top and then tile both the dining and living area. Will that work….the house is all poured concrete everywhere

    Hmmm …. I did the same thing in my Yorba Linda living room several years ago.
    Questions:
    I didn't pin rebar into my existing slab … it's 6" of concrete and it's not gonna move … purpose for pinning?
    At the request of my finisher (I don't have that skill) I laid down an inch of sand … I'm not sure why we did that … purpose?
    I like your videos … thanks!
