Default Bags of Concrete

The Casa2G100 Bill of Materials says to get 30 bags of 80lb premixed concrete, the Sakrete website says 11 for the same hearth size, who is right? The manual has a misprint maybe?

Thanks,
Joe

Default Re: Bags of Concrete

I am new to the forum and don't have the size of the hearth. But roughly every 3 to 4 SQ' is 1 cubic foot. Each bag does roughly 2/3 of a cubic foot. 1 yard is 27 cubic feet so would take about 36 bags. So if it is close to a yard 30 is right if close to a third of a yard then 11 bags is right. Just figure every 3 sq feet is 1 cubic foot.
