Keeping the above dimensions in mind, excavate a trench the combined width of the gutter and concrete curb and put in a sub-base of porous material. On top of this place concrete forms, as shown (Plate 26) and fill with a layer of concrete, 1 part cement, 3 parts clean, coarse sand and 6 parts broken stone, thick enough to fill the concrete forms to about 3 inch below the street level. As soon" as this concrete is sufficiently set to withstand pressure, place the concrete forms for the concrete curb and after carefully cleaning the concrete between the concrete forms and thoroughly wetting, fill with 1 part cement, 25/2 parts clean, coarse sand and 5 parts broken stone. When the concrete curb has sufficiently set to withstand its own weight without bulging, remove the 3/4 inch board shown (Plate 26), and with the aid of a trowel fill in the space between the concrete and the form with cement mortar, composed of 1 part cement and 1 part clean, coarse sand.    The finishing coat at the top of the concrete curb should be put on at the same time. Trowel thoroughly and smooth with a wooden float, removing face form the following day. Sprinkle often and protect from sun and traffic for a few days.  Plate 23 shows concrete forms and method of placing concrete for the one course method of concrete curb and gutter concrete construction.

Excavate to the required depth, draining the soil if necessary by excavating 8 inch more and filling in with gravel or cinders. Build concrete forms for the entire height (Plate 28), unless the earth is so firm that they need only be built for the part above ground. Expansion joints should be provided about every 10 or 15 ft. in the length of the concrete curb. This is done by placing a board at the end of the form against which the concrete is poured. This gives a square end. Against this end place a thin piece of steel or wood or a couple of thicknesses of tar paper when the next section of the concrete curb is poured to leave a slight opening. This steel or wood should be removed, but the tar paper can be left in place. The concrete mixture should be 1 part cement, 2 parts sand and 4 parts gravel or crushed stone with particles not larger than 1/2 inch. For every 100 ft. length of concrete curb such as shown in Fig. A, Plate 28, using the above concrete mixture, there will be needed 24 bags of cement, 48 cu. ft. of sand, and 6 cu. ft. of gravel or crushed stone. For the same length of concrete curb and gutter, made as in Fig. B, Plate 28, there will be needed 314 bags of cement, 60 cu, ft. of sand and 120 cu. ft. of gravel or crushed stone. The general tendency at the present time seems to be toward the one course method of concrete curb and gutter concrete construction. It is easier and cheaper to handle and if due care is taken in tamping and spading the concrete and then removing the concrete forms as soon as possible and finishing the concrete surface a good finish can be obtained.

There is more or less a lot of waste where feed is thrown carelessly on the ground for cattle. A concrete feeding floor overcomes this and does away with a muddy, disagreeable appearing barn yard. Wooden concrete floors absorb moisture and eventually decay. Concrete floors are free of cracks and seams, economize on feed and manure, are easily constructed and will save their cost in a couple of years. Arrange for a well drained, substantial foundation (see method of laying concrete walks), and construct the floor 5 inch thick of 1 part cement, 2 parts sand and 4 parts gravel or crushed stone. Lay in 6 ft. sections using 1 inch x 6 inch boards staked upright for the side concrete forms. Allow a slope of Jj inch to the foot toward one side. A concrete curb may be built around the edge, 4 inch higher than the floor to prevent hogs and cattle shoving off the feed. Extend the concrete curb about 18 inches into the ground to prevent hogs from rooting under the floor. Make this concrete curb about 5 inches thick.
