Filling The Inspection Pit & Laying A Concrete Slab

In this video I fill the inspection pit in my workshop and lay a concrete slab in the process of completing the works to the floor of my workshop, with a little help from my brother Alan.  The pit was filled with household rubble following refurbishment works at our property.  We used a mix of sharp sand and cement to create the concrete mix that we used. I believe that the sharp sand acts as both the sand and the aggregate content in the concrete (that's what I'm told anyway!  This was my first time using concrete for anything on this scale before.  This should not be viewed as a how to video, it's more of a how we did it video - having said that, it did seem to work out well!  We used a cement mixer to mix the concrete, and screeded the finish using a piece of timber.
