Concrete Gets Hard

This morning the concrete truck showed up, but no crew. About 20 minutes later, the concrete crew arrived and go to work.

It appeared that the concrete work was progressing with the owner doing most of the finishing work. Next came the stamps for the pattern layout. The front poarch and walkway was stamped with the design and a portion of the back walkway was also completed. The concrete in the back is in direct sun and was setting up faster than the crew could work it.

Now they have to breakup the length of walkway that does not have the pattern stamped into it, re-pour with fresh concrete and stamp the pattern in it. We feel bad as this means lost time and money for the contractor.
