More Pics From Saturday
My husband is so very thorough and detail-oriented. I was once again very impressed with his research and craftsmanship on constructing this whole base for the basketball hoop. He has some very heavy-duty rebar and metal beams he put together inside the cement we mixed and poured into this hole. He put together the metal plate with four threaded-thingamajiggies coming down from the plate into the cement. These four things (they resemble gigantic bolts..?) went down perfectly between some other metal bars and beams without interfering with them. What a dude!!! Here are pictures of the girls inspecting the hole...up close...the mess afterwards and the finished product, after 13 bags of cement and much to-do! Can't wait til it hardens completely and we can put up the hoop!
