|The finished concrete slab
|Adrian and Henry grinding the slab
When Adrian and Henry first started they did under the kitchen cupboards and we had to look to confirm the level of grind we wanted. The look we chose was a little more than just the fines showing with only a little of the aggregate showing. After the front pavilion was done we did another check just to confirm the look we wanted.
In Nowra we only has the choice of river stone or blue metal aggregate. We definitely did not want the blue metal look, so the river stone was our only choice. We are happy with the river stone's random colours from whites, to tan, to olive, and this looks great with the darker grey oxide we put in the concrete.
|Concrete is tricky to photograph
Ideally we would have ordered the frame two or three weeks ago, so it was ready to go up once the concrete polishers were finished, but time has been taken trying to finalise the awning detail, and it is time well taken as changes to the awning affected the stud spacing. Thankfully the frame will only take a couple of weeks, and this will give me time to organise someone to put it up.
