Default Building Bird Nest for future Bird

Bird Pad will be 20' x 55"
6" thick concrete with # 4 rebar
3000 psi concrete

I am having 2 more trees removed today hopefully.
Pad should start Monday.

If everything goes as planned I will order Pole Barn Next Weds.

I thought the typical recommendation for driving surfaces was 4,000 psi. Might be worth a quick check into it... I don’t think higher grades of concrete usually drive the price up too much.

When I extended my driveway I specified 6 sack concrete. Not much more money. No regrets.

If you're going from scratch, why not add a pit?? Makes working on any 'Bird so much easier if you can get underneath! Keep us posted with pics...
