Ohh, you're killing me. 2-3" thick round walls, flat roof and a cut out for a doorway. I'm out of ideas after that.

Re: My Increasing Interest In Forming.


today i went to work. Started off placing bar and what not. Concrete came..... poured had a few blows outs, when they poured the one part the concrete had been sitting in the pump so it was wet and the end of a block just blew out. and then in the windows the endcaps popped. Sure isn't a good feeling to be standing right in front of a wall as it blows out.

there was a some film crew for a promotional video on green construction or something. the filmer didn't want to come up on the tall walls so i built a little model wall and poured it...
i was supposed to crouch so it looked like a tall wall

That wasn't a blow out...that was a minor movement of foam, anything you repair in under a couple minutes is nothing

Also to be considered a blowout there has to be over a yard of concrete on the ground.

What i meant by blow out is not represented in the pic. It actually blew out. 1 of the blocks.. 1/2 metre lost probably.

The #11 just about killed me, second floor sliding them in from the outside and the splice was ridiculous consolidating it.


What does all this mean? I get the stirrups and stuff but hats this V and H mean

i had the deflection rating of a 2" slab but the shear rating of a 1"

Its like framing but after you pour concrete you wreck it.
I don't like demo. but pouring concrete is always exciting.

Re: My Increasing Interest In Forming.


what is pencil rod and how do you use it as form ties..
Im reading in my forming book that if you need to form an irregular section of wall you can use pencil rod and bolts. I guess you just drill holes. put the rod in and put big washers. of course using a spacer?
