Pouring a Concrete Slab With Bagged Concrete By Yourself
When needing to pour a concrete slab durring a period of social distancing you sometimes have no choice but to do it yourself. In my case this meant hand mixing many bags of concrete, fiber reinforced concrete, which was tough but doable. The trick was to break the project up into sections, mixing and pouring only the concrete I could manage in a period of time.

A benefit of pouring the concrete in this fashion is that the cold joints, where the two section of concrete join, serve in place of adding a concrete control joint.
