More on the hot tub move.

If you haven't read the previous post you need to start there. The hot tub is now making its way down the skinny walkway on the side of the house.
Whew! It's in the back yard, almost to the slab.
Perfect landing right on the slab, time for some beer.
Here it is all filled up. We have to let it heat up before running the first cleaning cycle and then we drain rinse and fill up again. That process will start tomorrow.

Finally Hot Tub moving day is here!

Here's the guys contemplating the move to the backyard.
This is Ryan showing off his six pack.
We're making progress, this isn't so bad.
This seems like a good time for a break since it has been moved several feet so far.

Cement slab finished

Well it's not perfect, but it's very strong and most of it will be covered by the hot tub anyway, I don't think it is too bad considering we have never done concrete before, at least not a job this big.
Here is a picture of the hot tub, not the actual hot tub, but the same model as the one we are getting from my brother, it's a Hot Spring Jetsetter. We are hoping to get enough guys to volunteer to help us move it next weekend. In the meantime I will get the wiring done so we will be ready to go.

Cement slab project

Barry is giving us his hot tub and we needed to find a place to put it, so we decided it is going where the old firepit planter thing was.
We bought 24-80 lb bags of cement and mixed them all one by one in the wheelbarrow, we ended up with 5 left over bags of cement.
As you can see we probably wasted one bag of cement just on Craig, I wasn't wearing quite as much as him at the end of the project.
