My family and I tackled this project in one day (16 hours of straight work) and learned to never do this much work at once EVER AGAIN! Removed this old broken driveway slab with a hand held concrete saw rented from Home Depot, dug the earth to a 7 inch depth, and laid a new 4 inch thick slab (6' by 6') Also added a short ramp to connect the front walk. About 500 bucks total, 300 after tool rental deposits were returned.
This is the Ugly, broken, way-too-thin slab that had to go!
Cutting up the concrete with a Saw into Manageable Chunks
The concrete is gone, and after hours of digging, I get my second Wind. I begin to lay in the forms.
Fresh Concrete is laid and smoothed and drying. This is at 1am. It took us 16 hours.
Next morning, cure and seal the concrete, remove the forms and fill in with soil and gravel. All finished!
