I would think otherwise. It'll be a great aerobic activity......but check with your doc first if you haven't exercised in a long while.....

I just spoke to someone who would bring and mix up half a yard in my driveway for 220.00. I would have to wheel barrow it into the hearth. Is this a good price?

I wouldn't pay that much for just 1/2 yard of concrete. You could probably get a couple of yards for that price. I'm sure the guy's charging you the minimum delivered price there, whether you get 1/2 yard or 2 yards, for instance.

It is 1 yard minimum. I called other places and 1 was for 225 the other was 250.00. I have a bad back and I think this may be the best solution. 1 I dont have to breathe in all that dust and 2 it will take me about 1/2 hour to haul it in. If I was to call in a truck and a pumper it would have cost me $500.00. The costs are starting to add up. for the stand an hearth I'm looking at around 350.00. I also bought a tile saw for 300.00 (HB saw, stand and blade) for a total of 650.00. Hopefully I can get this under 1300.00.
