Long story short:
We are residing our house with hardie board and it's been a long process (me and my husband for the most part). We decided to add a room on during the process. We hired a "concrete guy" for the slab. It wasn't square, off by about 3.5" on the outside corner.
Anyway, we were able to frame out the room using 2X6s instead of 2x4s, but there was no slab underneath the sliding glass door to bolt it into. Plus, it looks bad where the house hangs over the slab. We are trying to figure out how to build a new frame for concrete to fix it. If the frame is flush with the edge of the house, how do you pour in the concrete and ensure that it spreads evenly throughout? Do we build the frame larger than the edge of the house and chip off the extra after it dries?
Thanks for any tips on helping make this headache easier!
