    Hot tip: the first thing you should do is SEAL it. :D Don't be tempted to use it before that's done. You will regret it. lol

    I used a DIY kit from Bunnings back in 2010 and it still looks good as the day I did it.

    Yeah, it's on my list of things to get organised.

    There's a company local that the concreter recommends - All Con who do a sealer, which will end up being roughly the same as getting the Dymark kit from Bunnings.

    Pic dump time.

    First truck arrived at 7, second at 745. Took a total of 11 cubic metres of concrete.

    Concreter helicoptered it a total of 7 times. So now it's just a matter of waiting for it to cure.

    Time to keep this thread ticking over.

    Few things happened this weekend. Firstly, i got sick of looking at the hump in the entrance driveway to the garage so i hired an excavator and did some widening work on the driveway and also took out the hump.

    To do this i had to taper the drive all the way from the road entry gate i ended up removing about 3 cubic metres of dirt built a couple more garden beds to accomodate it and moved some more out the front.

    Then i laid down 2 cubic metres of crushed rock. Light was failing by that time so i didnt get many good pictures.


    Also, sparky came back and finished off the lights. So im now waiting to organise a plumber and i can organise final inspection.

    Before shot of the "hump" can see that it's a fairly severe drop off to the roller door.

    Another issue we found when doing the slab was that having the shed pushed right up against the retaining wall meant getting to the roller from the PA door and vice-versa when going through the shed isnt an option was a pain, so the retaining wall will be modified.

    So my shed is basically done bar a few small things like some more insulation and some landscaping. So finally got one car in there today.
