    Looking for someone to POUR AND FINISH ONLY about 1.5 yards of concrete pad. 9x16x4 inches. I will level, form, gravel base and rebar. All the contractor will need to do is mix and pour (with a box, can't get the truck back there) about 70 bags (furnished and at the site), scree, float, and broom it. Should only need 2 expansion joints.

    "Could" I do it? Yeah. But I am old and besides, concrete is almost never a one man job. Easier to hire a crew. I am in Spring Hope.

    Anyone in here interested? Recommendations?

    Forget that bag stuff. Bring a truck and haul it in a wheel barrel if necessary. You don"t want anyone mixing 70 bags of concrete and finishing in this heat. Heck no. And brooming is nice as a non slick surface but it gets dirty and hard to clean. I suggest smooth. Add a town so someone can assist. I have a name in Winston and Kernersville area.

    He’s right. A few bags at a time will look terrible and won’t hold up very good as it’ll dry fast. Plus, price your 70 bags, then call the concrete co and see how much it’ll be to have a guaranteed mix brought out with the correct amount of water. I also came up with 1.7 yards instead of a yard and a half. Couple wheelbarrows and a couple folks to push them and you can move that much concrete in 20 mins

    9x16x.33 / 27 = 1.76 yards

    Who would be the guy in Kville and W/S. I don't need anything right now but it's always good to have a good point of contact, seems like every time I call one for work they never even show up.

    I’ve looked for this guys card a couple times. It was on my desk until the wife got on my computer even though I bought her one of her own. I’ll keep looking.

    Used to be these folks would do what you're asking for - except they would supply and finish. If it were me, that's where I'd start.
