    ano? tipid ng cocolumber? so para tipid e 1/2 lang ang buhusan then ililipat agad sa next 1/2 yung cocolumber? e hindi pa naman pwede alisin agad yung scaffolding sa ilalim nun hindi pa cured yun, mga 1 week pa yun bago fully cured. sigurado ka ba dyan sa contractor/foreman mo?

    wag ka na muna magpa buhos TS unahin mo palitan yung foreman mo. pag pag one day pa lang nalis na yung mga porma gumuho na!

    Agree ako sa iba buhusan at tapusin mo nang isang araw.

    Prefab kung sakto yung specs sa house niyo. The shortcoming of prefab (i.e. Vazbilt) is that there's a set size/dimension and construction design to follow since it follows mass production. This limits the freedom of you layout and design. I've seen some prefab houses before and they look okay.

    When I had our house extension built, 2nd floor concrete slab was poured and finished within one day, I rented a 1 bag mixer, and around 10 guys to haul up the concrete. Work started 7 am, up to around 10 pm, nonstop. Same with our third floor, except that I added 2 more guys to man the block and tackle for winching up the concrete buckets.

    If you stop halfway, chances of your roof having a water leak is more likely. Cement will crack on the jointed part. I suggest you do it in one pass. Be prepared to feed them, merienda, lunch, dinner, energy drinks, cold water, etc. Well fed, ang mga construction workers hataw lang ng hataw yan. My concrete slabs are now crack free.

    My 2 cents.

Am just curious kung pano nila buhosan half ng biga? Lalagyan ng harang yung other half ng biga?
    Hampasin mo sa ulo yang foreman mo, di pa cured yan the next day tapos tangalan nya na ng support.

    ^ I think your foreman does not know what he is talking about. Baka nagma-marunong lang yan, mahirap kung gumuho ang slab, back to square one ka nyan. And sayang ang pera on materials.

    I left the slabs to cure for 1 week, before we removed the scaffolds. Hindi din namin tinangal lahat, para may support pa rin on the stress and critical areas.

    Good day,

    thank you guys for inputs, sorry mali pala ako pagkaintindi sa foreman ko, yung mga biga pala sinasabi niya na 1 side muna then after 2 days tangal na yung box then lipat sa kabilang side na biga naman, then after 2 days ay mag foform naraw sila para sa floor slab na..

    another question po is the stability to prevent cracks and leak, kasi sabi niya 1 side nila bubuhusan yung floor slab hangang sa hati ng biga then next day ulit the other side..

    ok lang ba yung ganun procedure? or they really need to finish the buhos the entire day?

    regarding sa cement mixer, sabi ng foreman ko wag naraw..para makatipid, kaya naman raw ng manual...

    worry kolang kung baka magkaproblema ako sa katagalan kung half half yung buhos nila sa floor slab?

    more inputs guys..TIA

    Nga pala, if you can rent metal scaffolding, it would be a much cheaper (and sturdier) alternative to using cocolumber as concrete support. Not only is cocolumber getting expensive, you also have to buy nails and GI wire to secure them. This adds up to your cost, not to mention A LOT of used cocolumber afterwards.

    If you want to rent, I can refer you to the hardware where I bought all my construction materials.
