Ahhh, but I did. Fist bump to you B'Man. I put a 3 or 4 mil sheet that's actually double (or
triple?) folded and extends beyond the forms directly on the slab. I'd done it, consciously, to
keep the ba...

Hiya, I messed up a bit here. I'm pouring a 4" concrete slab tomorrow (72"x54") over 4" tamped

thanks WoW and DFB. "long-slow" oil huh? I don't think that's what I've got (possibly too on
