Title: Packing peanuts?
Yeah, we have lots of barley straw here (and Augie Busch has a vacation home). That’s currently the way I’m leaning. It’s in town, though, and I wonder how ripe it will get when the snow starts melting. And if I need 750 bales, how do I calculate the required number of dump cats to keep the rodent population at bay?
Here in Montreal and outlying regions contractors will use hay to protect new concrete during cold weather construction.
I’ve got a small commercial project that’s getting put on hold, just before the Wyoming winter sets in. I’m sure I’m not the only one. This one has footings & concrete walls, but no slab, backfill, or floor package, and the owner doesn’t want to (can’t?)do anything else, except the bare minimum to protect his investment from frost. The outside backfill to frost depth is no problem, but those footings are exposed on the inside, too, as well as lots of interior footings, elevator pit, etc. The footprint is about 4,400sf. Filling it up with 500 cu. yds of dirt (to frost depth) and then scooping it out in the spring seems too painful. Does anyone have good ideas for reasonably priced blankets or even lightweight structural fill?
