After 5 futile day waiting for the pre-mixed concrete that never came. A decision was made, we were going to do it ourself, mixing it old school, hardcore style. 1 part cement, 2 part sand, and 4 parts gravel.
My cousin who is in the construction business brought us to the building material store to get the supplies, and lend some free professional consultations too.
I bought: 1 fork-lift scoop of gravel, 2 scoops of sand, 2 sheets of BRC, 8 packs of cement, 450 cement-bricks, 150 red-bricks, 3 packs of water-proofing agent, 2 rows of brick wire mesh.
Total cost: RM 680+
Building material delivered, looking like a construction yard now.
Cousin giving a few words of advice
BRC is laid for a strong foundation
BRC had to be raised a couple inches high (using bricks) so that it’ll be in the middle layer of the concrete
Mixing the concrete, Big David helped, and so did Chan
David gotten a bit tired..
Sotong was just fooling around, as usual
While they mix, I level the concrete foundation at approximately 5 inches thick
And it was done!
