Building the Concrete Form

Posted By on March 12, 2009

Starting the FormsHere we are starting the wood forms for the concrete.  Karen assembled the 4 X 8 forms in the barn and then we hauled them down to the dam using Dave’s tractor.  We used a concrete saw to cut a smooth channel in the bedrock and then chipped out the rock with large crowbars.  The panels were then set into the channel.  The tops of the panels were held by threaded rods that were anchored into the old concrete dam.

  1. Threaded rods are good, but budget wise, a wire mesh is just as good.

  2. You have a nice output. Thank you so much
