Oops! I forgot to get a final photo this morning after we finished the last touches on the ring beam! After we finished up pouring nine more buckets of concrete to top off the ring beam we rushed off to visit my family for Thanksgiving dinner. Yes, I realize that this isn’t the official day – why conform! :)
The above photo shows the not quite completed ring beam with the burlap coffee bean bags on it to help keep the curing concrete warm. There were a few beans in the bags and I noticed this morning that a couple had fallen into the wet cement. Cappuccino flavored cement!!! My latest invention!
