As I described in the Slow Cured post, John had quite the afternoon in trying to locate the anchors embedded in the slab. It turns out the solution was right there on eBay – a pinpoint metal detector. This little gem has a two-inch depth range and worked perfectly to locate the anchors. John patched the previous misplaced crater and exposed the anchors with a bit of work with a cold chisel.

We continue to keep the slab wet to slow-cure the concrete. A layer of plastic on top and the new, insulated 12x12 overhead door help tremendously in that effort. We also worked on some odds and ends. I painted the inside of one man door – which took a lot longer than I thought it would (I was thinking I would paint the outside too, but that will have to wait for another day). John removed the wooden forms he built for the slab pour, and installed the handles and locks on the man doors. Now the building is secured, which is nice feeling.
