    Undisturbed  soil for 25 years is
    considered as compacted. So no worry about it. No worries about frost
    depth and layer of gravel. These are for other applications Seems you
    used 2×4 as a framework. If yes, then you should have at least 6×6
    wire mesh reinforcement. 4500 PSI  is way more than need it. 1500
    will be OK.  In hot weather you should keep concrete wet/moist for at
    least a week.

    Some concrete plants charge $100 per 1
    cubic yard of concrete with delivery. Therefore is more economical to
    buy concrete from plant than from big bucks stores and mix on your
    own. Good job buy the way.

    Hi All, The customer did not want to spend extra for rebar, cheap alternative, go by barber shop, collect hair clippings, introduce into mix, cheap tensile strength. Thanks, take care.

    I've pour a lot of concrete slabs when I was working. Never poured one that was level. With a level slab you will get water in that shed. I would have sloped it one inch from back to front. Not enough to notice, but enough to keep the water out. That's just me.

    I would have added #10 wire if not using rebar as well as BCBC / quarry run stone base if you live in a area that has frost. Even sidewalks need a stone base for proper drainage in frost/freeze climates.

    And they say people don't use geometry in real life. That was a Pythagorean Triangle!

    Rebar is not about moving but you used rebar so it won’t crack or break.

    Pretty sure the 3-4-5 method will never become old school lol it’s the ONLY school and impossible to improve upon. The little square is for the unschooled and the new high tech layout electronics are just flat out expensive for the small end builder—just saying

    I really am thankful for the videos and glad there’s more young men out there like myself

    Nice job, well explained. That was hard work though mixing it out front and wheeling it back. Here, we can buy redi-mix concrete and haul it in by trailer for 1 yard or less.

    Another way of measuring square that you don't mention is build the square then measure the diagonals

    You need a longer striker board and put the stakes below the frame makes things a lot easier. Good job if the homeowner was happy all good ✌
