That young man in the green safty vest is my concrete foreman. He's 68 years old! He's an old army vet names Fred. I asked him if he knew a special inspector. He said he has a guy that will smog a Schwinn bicycle! Lol!

So we pull an imaginary Pythagorean
(so to speak) downhill to be be able to get square on the ground with a slope. The math works perfect. Finish floor was to determine top of piers which gave us one of the numbers for the Pythagorean.
