I hurried away from work tonight and started pouring concrete right away. I got this patio section poured and continued mixing concrete and filled the west footing formed yesterday. I took the picture above before I had gotten over it with the trowel as I knew it would be almost dark before I finished. The footing is 1 foot by 16 foot long, making it the same square footage as the patio section, but it poured quickly and did not get a lot of trowel work since it will not be visible once the deck is built.
The concrete set quicker than the batch did yesterday and I began work on the forming of the remaining west footing. I was correct, the sun was setting as I completed the finish on the patio concrete.
