Grading

They are leveling off the ground, readying it for concrete slabs, piers and retaining walls. It’s pretty impressive what can be accomplished in one day, really transforming the feel of the lot.

Scott and I have been going back and forth about the concrete slab finish. We can leave it with the standard finish (smoothed with a steel trowel and sealed) or we can add special aggregate (small rocks) and diamond polish off a thin layer at the top, leaving a super shiny, durable and pretty finish. Of course this comes at a price. Here are examples of the two options – standard finish on top, polished below.

We are leaning toward the polished finish. It looks alot like terrazzo but also has a distinctive look its own.
