The residence and horse stable was not a normal residential, decorative, or agricultural project but rather all of the above, with a different set of challenges. The owner was looking for a retirement home that enabled him to work yet focus on his passion – horses.
To accomplish this created obstacles, as the project started late spring and completed in December and involved 10,000 square feet of buildings. For the building portion of the project, the concrete supplier and contractor made mixes designed to enable maximized time on site. This portion included things like 12-foot-high walls, sunken golf simulator, radius walls, and stacked forms.
Another contractor performed all of the decorative concrete work. A separate stamp mix was designed to create the most consistent product for the 7,500 square feet of decorative concrete.
The project was a challenge for all involved due to the tight timeline and multiple contractors working at the same time in the same area. To complete this project was truly a team effort. Total cubic yards of concrete used was 1,000.
