This is a LONG overdue post that was supposed to be my first post of the 2016 calendar year. Just when you thought I couldn't make another post about concrete at the Contemporary Cottage, I bring you pictures of the final concrete pours on the job.
What was left? Well, we needed a proper entry up to the finished floor.
Other than the front entry steps, the very rear footing for the exterior deck, the 'garage' floor, and of course the highlight of exposed concrete on the project: the "finished" interior floors.
After letting the concrete cure for a day, the finish team came back to saw cut control joints. Cracks in long expanses of concrete are inevitable, but control joints help to control where the cracking will begin to occur. This way, we can try to avoid the random cracking, and keep cracking to where we would prefer for them to happen.
