did you put a vapor barrier down ?

Yes kind of, black plastic, the real vaporers cost more than I can afford. Rebar also and the concrete has fiber in it.

 At first glance I thought it was a tiny skating rink

They are kind of rare here and always inside.

I meant outdoors and you know I meant outdoors⛸️

Outside would cause long lines, everyone waiting for the water to turn to ice, and it would never happen.

Keep the water on until the last minute. I do tunnels & roadways.

we keep the water on for 30 days! Lookin good, Mr Kotter!

Oh I almost forgot, don't forget the Termite flange.

That's what I read, 30 days is about 80% cured and the more water the stronger the concrete. I also heard keeping the form it for a few extra days helps also, less surface open to the air , helping hold in water.

 

What is a termite flange, never hear of it ?

Cleaning my wonderful Cuisinart coffee maker this morning.  Been playing with it for an hour now!  This just isn't right!  I WANT MY COFFEE!  😡

 

Nothing else to report.  Carry on my wayward friends!

 

WAIT! Check that "clean" water out will ya?  It's a wonder I'm not dead with all the junk floating in that "clear" water rinse cycle.  I guess "if it doesn't kill ya it just makes ya stronger" could be true.  Couple more cycles and I might just try a pot or two!  Being pathetically worthless can be a good thing.  :)

Might need to hit it again with that vinegar water, but then you have to rinse it eight or so times.

Four stage filter now and I haven't had to clean the brewing part since, try once a year or so and nothing comes out. It does take care of raising the water level to where it's supposed to be though. Use a half a dishwasher tablet to clean the stainless thermal pot though it turns a nice amber color often.

If your framing, its an angled piece of tin or aluminum that the sill plate sits on, so the termites can't get into the wood. About a 60 degree angle.

Termite can't walk upside down...

the "clean" cycle does take some time to run. It stops midway and "soaks" a bit before finishing the cycle.

Oh OK, no there is no wood it's a metal building. But it does come with what they call rat guard which covers the bottom of the sheeting ridges on the sides so nothing can get in.

Is that called a shave ice in Hawaii?  In Canada, I think they’re called slushies.

I had a feeling it was just called different things in other places. They tend to call many things by a odd names here, they kind of make it up as they go it seems.
