Pouring Concrete Footing

Right, today I found a fix to the issue we discovered earlier this summer - missing foundation for the some parts of our rural house.

Some few days ago I bough a concrete mixer, gravel was already waiting to be mixed with concrete, now it was time to pour in footing for the missing part.

Now its time to pour in a base footing, itš a bout 90 cm width and about 30 cm height. Latter on that we will continue to pour in foundation.It's just a footing to make things rock solid.

Now, I'm using some really strong plastizers which will make concrete rock solid already after a day, and I will continue to lay over the foundations. But for now - let's leave concrete to solidly for night.
