In the 5 yrs that we have been doing this, we never have had a problem. Eifs systems are almost mandatory here to meet code.
i really don't know why there has been so many problems with this in America.
my only problem with it is that its so damn fragile compared to brick or block exterior walls

we also poured 10mc. for the driveway yesterday.

Started the concrete wall, these have me worried because so many factors that I can't control weigh into the final result, redoing these when they come bad suck, and costs ALOT of money to redo

Handrail Stairs Water Reinforced concrete
The home owner decided he wanted stairs going up behind the wall and had to get the "little *****" to start digging me more foundation.
I hate doing later what should of been done before.
lost the whole afternoon for something that before i poured the foundation would of took 2 minutes and cost me nothing

Pics look great :thumbsup:. The stairs in the first set of pics look great but must be slippery when wet?

Where is this? I thought Cali until you mentioned winter as well as the metric measurements.

gotta keep the boards wet so they don't shrink that much.
Shouldn't bow that much now, I hope

Why wouldn't you just use modern aluminum or foam forms? I haven't seen something that archaic, ever.
no need foam forms, the cost for such a small job is astronomical.
and the face part has to show the boards vertically, "facciavista"

Yes plywood would work too. Our guys would show up at 7, set panel forms, get inspected, and pour at noon..
ply wood is not facing material, a facing concrete board wall is difficult.
If the pour comes good, it will be left as is. which is actually quite beautiful

this is a 2 day job for 2 persons, by myself, 4 days
