Rowhouse - power trowel basement slabs

The placing crew was off to an early start and had poured most of the three rowhouse slabs before noon.  With heaters running we are sort of simulating summer conditions down below but placing concrete in winter is never ideal.   

Getting the mess associated with concrete work out of the way and avoiding potential damage to windows and doors is a bonus of not being at the lockup stage while doing this job.  Fortunately the framers are planning to be back tomorrow to install the windows.  Next up are the roofers and that will he the end of exterior work for a while.   



The slabs are setting up and being polished by the power  trowel.  All this hard work eventually gets covered up in flooring.
