if the steel is bent to where its still 3 inches or so above the ground you should be ok. I brought this up with my PM and he noted while they were shooting it how the guys feet were between the centers and it steel was up to their ankles or higher without supports under it in spots. You could prop up any spots that are close with a broken brick if you like or point them out before they shoot it, but as long as the steel is up 3-4in from the soil you should be ok as the shotcrete/gunite sets up fast enough that it doesnt weigh the steel down into the soil. This coming from a PB but it made sense to me as well.
Well euphoria doesn’t last long. I measure the tanning ledge and it’s about 6 inches too short. What are my options here? Already let the pool builder know and gonna talk in the morning. Can they just shoot more gunite? Do they have to add more rebar? It’s gonna mess up the stairs too. Ugh.
I was going to comment on the edge detail and how nice it all looks then I saw your next post I am going to call in a couple of experts that can help with this question. @bdavis466@jimmythegreek
Did you have in mind the loungers or such you wanted to put on the shelf? I am asking this as the PB might offer to take some money off to keep from having to do the fix and I want you to be ready for that if he says it.
