### Sinking in Concrete

Day 4 – Firepit and Curbs

What Information?
• After you talked to Mr. Johansen, you discovered that he would like a 2’ border surrounding his firepit.
• Mrs. Johansen would only like the garden border around the new edges and not around the natural walls. She would like them to be 4” high and 6” wide. To do this you will need the curb to extend 2” below the ground.
Materials
• For the Firepit, you will need gravel, concrete, rebar and plywood.
• For the curbs you will need ready mix concrete and plywood.
Fire Pit
• The Fire pit will be found similar to sidewalk #1. We will need to find the area of the big circle and subtract the area of the small circle.

2’

2’

Abig-Asmall
• The area will be 25.13 square feet
• Remember this is the amount of rebar needed.
• Add it to the chart
Gravel
• V= Abase * Height
• V= 25.13 * 0.5
• V=12.57 cubic feet
Concrete
• V= Abase * Height
• V= 25.13 * 0.42
• V=10.55 cubic feet
Plywood
• We will need the circumfrence of both circles for the plywood measure.
• First do the big ring
• Then the small
• Now add them together! 6.28 +18.85=25.13’
Plywood Cost
• Remember there are 8’ in one strip
• 25.13/8 = 3.14
• That is less than one sheet since you can get 8 in one sheet!
• 3.14/8 = .39 of a sheet
• We will order 1 sheet
Rebar Cost
• Recall there are 32 square feet in one sheet of rebar.
• We need 25.13
• 25.13/32 = .79
• We will order 1 sheet
Gravel Cost
• 12.57 * 0.037 = 0.47 cubic yards
• We will order 1 cubic yard
Concrete Cost
• Convert to cubic yards first, then to cubic meters.
• 10.55 * 0.037 = 0.39
• 0.39 * 1.82 = .71 cubic meters
Total Cost
• Concrete: \$200.00
• Rebar: \$14.45
• Wood: \$37.00
• Total: \$258.45

+ tax (multiply by 1.13) = \$292.05

Curb #1(Rose Garden)

The curb for the rose garden will be beside sidewalk one that was calculated on day 2 with the plywood.

• Small Circle:

C=2*3.14*18

113.04 ** don’t forget to divide by 4

113.04/4 = 28.26’

• Remember that 6” = .5’
• Remember that 4” + 2” = 6”
V=l*w*h

V=28.26 * .5 * .5

V=7.07 cubic feet

Plywood
• We will need to frame all four sides
• P= l+l+l=l
• To find the missing inside curb length. Use the circumference fomula again and divide by 4.
• The radius is the 18’ - .5’ for the curb.

C=2*3.14*17

106.81 ** don’t forget to divide by 4

106.81/4 = 26.7’

• P= 28.26+.5+26.7+.5 = 55.96’
Curb #2(Flower Bed by Bedroom #3)
• This is a rectangular flower bed shaped like an L
• We will need 3 edges as 3 are natural walls with the house.
Measurements
• The front side is 2’
• The front edge is 11+2 = 13’
• The side edge is 12 +2 (closet) +2 (garden) = 16’
• 2+13+16 = 31’
Calculate
• V=l*w*h

V=31*.5*.5

V=7.75 cubic feet

• Inside edge is .5’ less along the house, 1’less along the front and .5’less on the side.
• 31-1-.5-.5 = 29

P = 31+29 +.5+.5= 61’

Plywood Cost
• 116.96’/8’ =14.62
• 14.62/8 strips = 1.83 sheets
• We can not order .83 sheets so we will order 2
Concrete Cost
• It takes 2.3 bags of ready mix to fill 1 cubic foot.
• We have 14.82 cubic feet.
• 14.82 * 2.3 = 34.09
• We will need to order 35 bags
What is the total price?
• Now lets add our prices from all three days!
• Driveway - \$ 3685.78
• Sidewalks - \$ 3647.36
• Deck piers - \$ 261.74
• Fire pit - \$ 292.05
• Curbs - \$ 283.65

TOTAL: \$8170.58

(without wear and tear and labour)

• Gravel B-grade: 18 * \$6.00= \$108.00
• Gravel A-grade: 19 * \$7.00= \$133.00
• Concrete: 28 * \$200.00= \$5600.00
• Wood: 9 * \$37.00= \$333.00
• Rebar: 31 * \$14.45= \$447.95
• Tubes: 3 * \$11.37= \$34.11
• Brackets: 6 * \$2.97= \$17.82
• Ready Mix: 65 * \$5.99= \$389.35
• Total: \$7063.23
