On a construction site if we waited 28 days nothing would get done.

Oh, I agree, most won't wait that long, but I'm talking my own personal projects per recommendation of a mason. I can wait the 28 days

After the 7 days out where I live the cement was totally white and I was told it was cured enough for the weight of the coach, so far so good.

Concrete gets harder the longer it is in place. Most concrete reaches 70% of it's compression strength within 5-7 days. Full capacity still may not be reached for a period of 28 days or more dependent upon the hydration of the mix. Some may be as long as 50-70 days. example of age and hardness, is that on a 12 inch think slab at a rolled steel storage facility, we had to cut a 60 foot hole for a new truck scale. The slab was 80 years old and when first installed was 5K lbs mix. before we cut the slab we had it core tested for our end of the liability standards and found the slab aged to 9K lb compression test.

my personal choice is to wait. hydration of the mix varies. fast cure mix is very expensive.

+1. 7 days is more than enough time if it is properly designed and placed and if it has a stabilized subgrade. If it cracks at 7 days, it was going to crack at 28 days anyway. Most of our cylinder breaks at 7 days well exceed the design criteria. We once had a sub accidentally use a lower PSI concrete than specified, but it was allowed to remain because it surpassed the strength of the higher PSI concrete at 7 days and 28 days.

I waited about six weeks before putting the RV in. Cars and the rest went in after two weeks. Waited until I saw the edge had receded at least an eighth of an inch from the outside wall all the way around. Guy that installed it said that's an easy way to tell when it's safe to put the real heavy stuff on it.

Our garage (home) is finally done & I can share pics! After 6 years of full time RVing we are cutting back to 1/2 timing. Both us and our coach will now get a winter break from travel planning, pot lucks and happy hours to rest and rejuvenate for the next season!

That looks great, itgeekgal. And I like the idea for the video. You'll get a lot of enjoyment out of that setup. I especially like your choice of colors for the walls and garage doors.

ID:	119222. Here is a view of our 2500 sq ft toy house. The door is a 18 foot tall to allow for the kick up of the rear end of our Outlaw when it hits the approach to the door. It took 6 concrete trucks for the 8" deep floor.

Not heated because in our area anything with heat requires a fire sprinkler system. Our homes all have them and they really can run up the cost of a building that size.
