Carport Repair: New Piers

Thanks to Violet and Jessie, it's been a while since I've given you an update on Dan's carport repair project, but he's been making steady progress. Last time I showed you how he replaced the old posts that held up the carport roof. After that, he started on an idea we'd discussed - adding an extension.

An extension will add firewood storage space and help stabilize the structure.

The first step involved making piers for the roof support posts that would be required. The forecast was for very cold temps, so he wanted to get his concrete work done while the days were still fairly mild.

First step: dig holes large enough for two cap blocks.

Step two: mix small amounts of concrete.

Step three: cement ready-made piers to the cap blocks.

Then they were left to cure. Every time it rained the holes flooded but that hasn't bothered the concrete. Several days later Dan filled in the holes.

They are supposed to be allowed to sit for at least a couple of weeks. In the meantime, Dan turned his attention to beefing up the existing roof in preparation for the metal roofing panels. More on that soon.
