Pouring A Concrete Slab

Pouring A Concrete Slab

How To Lay A Concrete Pad Laying a concrete pad is a handy DIY skill that can be put to use in a variety of ways around your home from driveways and paths to floors. In this guide we will take you through the process of laying a concrete pad for a 1.8m by 1.5m garden shed. Download PDF guide Share this guide Facebook Facebook Pinterest Pinterest Tools & Materials Instructions Products You Will Need Decking Timber Nails Spray Paint Metal Sand Builders Mix Polyurethanes Wire & Reinforcing Mesh Cement Tools you will need Hammers Levels & Chalklines Measuring Tapes, Rulers & Squares Spades & Forks Trowels Rakes & Brooms Garden Gloves View All Instructions Getting Started Selecting & Preparing The Site When you are deciding where to place your shed you need to allow enough distance from hedges and fences. Boxing Boxing is the outer framework that is pegged in place on the ground that holds your concrete in place. This can be made out of any old timber you have lying around. If the timber is not straight it can be easily straightened with your pegs. Ensure to use enough pegs to support the boxing so when the weight of the concrete is loaded up against it, it will not ‘blow out’. Using 100x25mm rough sawn untreated timber, nail the boxing timber together and place on your selected site. Measure the diagonals to make sure they are both the same to ensure your boxing is square. Use your stringlines and dazzle to mark out where the perimeter of your concrete pad is going. Do all necessary soil removal prior to placing your boxing timber and base course down. A concrete pad can be level with the ground or raised above it. For this job we are laying the pad level with ground. Handy Hint Leave the nails sticking out so the boxing timber is easier to remove at the end of the job. Preparing the Site This shed requires a total depth of 150mm. This depth can vary depending on the job or terrain. Generally speaking, a floor slab or a driveway will be 100mm minimum basecourse and sand, and 100mm concrete. Before commencing work, check with your local council as you may require a permit. Peg the boxing timber in place. Make sure it is level so your shed sits flat, and then fix the pegs to the boxing timber. Rake and remove any loose dirt. For this shed we are going to create a rebate. This is a step around the edge of the concrete pad which the shed will sit into. We do this just for the purpose of water tightness. Attach pieces of 20x25mm timber to the inside of the boxing timber to create the rebate in the pad that the walls of the shed slot onto. Add 75mm of basecourse and compact it. Add 10-20mm layer of sand and give it a rake. This is to stop the polythene being punctured by the basecourse. Place a sheet of polythene over the sand and tuck it in neatly around the edges. This will act as a moisture barrier. If you are laying mesh, use small concrete blocks or mesh chairs to hold it o the polythene, so it sits in the middle of the concrete slab. A concrete pad this size doesn’t require mesh but anything larger or heavier will. The Mix Mix your concrete in a mixer according to the instructions on the pack and then pour it into the boxing timber. Spread it out and then give the boxing timber a tap with your hammer to settle the concrete and get rid of any air bubbles. Machine mixing – this is better for larger quantities. Hand mixing – hand mixing is appropriate for small volumes. Measure out the sand and builders mix into a heap on a hard surface or in a wheel barrow. Make a crater in the centre of the heap and add the cement. Mix the materials together thoroughly, aiming for a uniform colour. Make a crater in the mixed heap and add some of the water. Bring the dry material to the water from around the edge of the crater. Keep mixing and adding water until the whole pile is mixed well. Placement Of Concrete Start in the corner and work your way along the edge. Ensure to occasionally lightly tap the side of the boxing timber to remove any air bubbles. For a shed this size, you can place all your concrete in and move straight to the finishing stage. Stay Safe Hint Concrete is safer to work with than most other common materials. There are three main safety points to remember: Be careful lifting and handling, concreting materials are heavy and you could hurt your back. Don’t let freshly mixed concrete or mortar come into direct contact with your skin. Wear protective gloves. If you do get wet concrete on your skin, wash with soap and water within an hour. If cement gets in your eyes wash immediately with clean water and seek medical treatment. The Finish For the first stage of the finishing process, use a straight piece of timber to screed the concrete off. It is best to have a little excess concrete in your slab so you have a little extra to work with which will make for a more uniform finish. Next, use a magnesium (mag) trowel. This stops drawing the water up and out of the concrete too soon. How long you wait for this to dry is entirely weather dependant. You may need to test the concrete a couple of times to ensure it has dried enough for you to hit it with the steel trowel but not so dry that you can’t work with it. The final stage is with a steel trowel for a nice, smooth finish. You can repeat this final step to create a smoother finish if that’s the look you want. Curing A pad this size will need around 48 hours to cure but keep an eye on it. Concrete that dries too fast can crack and shrink, so in sunny conditions you might want to give the concrete a light mist with your hose to prevent this. Alternatively you can also use wet sacks to retain the moisture. Handy Hint Using old engine oil on your boxing will help the timber strip away from the concrete with great ease.

Living Room Furniture Layout

Living Room Furniture Layout

Everything In This Slideshow 1 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Arrange for Face-to-Face Conversation Arranging the seating pieces to face each other over a shared coffee table makes conversation easy, and the table keeps drinks in easy reach. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 2 of 20 Facebook Pinterest See it in Action! Find out what three things you need to consider when planning your furniture arrangement 3 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Divide the Room with Furniture Divide a large living/dining space into separate zones with furniture placement. A sofa facing away from the dining room defines the conversation area from the rest of this open layout. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 4 of 20 Facebook Pinterest TV vs. Fireplace You have both a TV and a fireplace, but aren’t a fan of having both on the same wall? Try this arrangement strategy. Watch now! 5 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Seat Four with Chairs If you don’t have room for the usual sofas and love seats, four comfy chairs will serve as well–or perhaps better. In this clean, crisp setting, matching white slipcovered chairs define an orderly, compact, yet welcoming seating group. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 6 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Pull Furnishings Together with a Rug Use a large area rug to unify a seating group within a larger space. If the rug isn’t large enough to contain all of the seating pieces, make sure that those farthest from the wall are solidly anchored on the “island.” 7 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Arranging a Great Room When your living space is part of a larger great room, make sure your arrangement fits the space. Watch and see how to make it happen. 8 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Enlarge the Space with Diagonals Placing the furniture diagonally gives a boxy room some flavor. The diagonal also creates a welcoming pathway into the seating group. Use the sofa and coffee table to establish the diagonal axis and arrange additional seating on the same axis. To subtly anchor the seating group to the room’s architecture, align the area rug with the fireplace wall. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 9 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Make Space for Lounging In living rooms where lounging and TV-watching are the main activities, a sectional sofa offers flexible, comfortable seating. Sectionals come in a variety of units, from armless chairs to love seats, ottomans, and chaises that you can combine to fit your space. The sofa in this living room is oriented toward the TV (not shown) and the extra seating is lightweight and can be easily rearranged to face the TV. 10 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Divide Large Spaces with Seating If your living room is the setting for large parties, bring intimacy and a comfortable sense of scale to the room by dividing it into two conversational groupings with a path between them. Placing one sofa with its back to this path underscores the separation between the two groups, as do the area rugs anchoring them. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 11 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Focus on the View An effective room arrangement starts with the focal point, the cornerstone of your living room design. Typically a fireplace plays this role, but in this contemporary cottage space, the view out the French doors takes center stage instead. Orient the main seating piece toward the focal point and arrange the secondary seating pieces around the main piece. In winter, the room could be rearranged to focus on the fireplace. 12 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Create Order with Symmetry Pairs of matching sofas, side tables, and lamps strike a perfect balance on each side of the fireplace in this contemporary living room. Symmetry imposes a sense of order on the space. 13 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Create Activity Zones In a large, open room, use furniture arrangement to divide the space into different activity zones. Here a table and chairs gather on one side of the room, providing a spot for informal meals or games. In the center of the room, a sofa, chairs, and ottoman form a conversational cluster anchored by a rug. 14 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Use Chairs Instead of Sofas In a small living room, create a sense of greater space and openness with a collection of chairs instead of using sofas or love seats. The scale of these armchairs suits the smaller living room. 15 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Set Aside a Sunny Corner A pair of chairs with a set of stools converts this well-lit corner into a cozy spot for two. Whether you entertain large groups or small ones, providing guests with paired seating helps ensure that everyone will have at least one conversational partner. Plan your perfect furniture arrangement with Arrange-a-Room! 16 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Arrange in an L Shape In this large living room, a sofa and a love seat form an L framing a large coffee table. This simple arrangement provides a convenient conversational cluster. A single chair at the other side of this group can easily be moved closer to the conversation grouping. 17 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Create Quiet Spot in a Bay Turn a bay window into a quiet spot for two with a pair of comfortable chairs and an ottoman. Provide the chairs with a table and lamp so you’ll have light for reading and a place to rest a cup of tea. 18 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Snuggle Up to the Fireplace The fireplace is the natural focal point of a living room. Flank each side with seating, whether it’s two sofa or a sofa and pair fo chairs, and place a large coffee table in the middle. 19 of 20 Facebook Pinterest Offer Casual Seating If you’re more likely to lounge in front of the fireplace than sit on a sofa, keep a supply of oversize floor pillows and ottomans on hand.
