SMASH-HAPPY

The Family Handyman - - GREAT GOOFS - JA­SON AMUNDSEN

When I was break­ing up an old porch to have a con­crete pa­tio poured, I was sur­prised to find a slab of con­crete al­ready there. I started whal­ing on the slab with my sledge­ham­mer. Sud­denly the sledge broke through into a huge, dark void, which turned out to be my base­ment. Ap­par­ently the slab was cov­er­ing a con­cealed well room. We now had to re­place it. But in­stead of a sim­ple con­crete pour, we had to spend much more on a slab that could span the open space.
