I am in the process of building a home in Tennessee. So far everything is concrete and cmu, including second floor deck and shed roof are 4000psi concrete which i board formed. These i was able to use a forklift and wheelbarrow to pour, very labor intensive but turned out wonderful. The problem with my top roof is i will need it to be pumped greatly increasing cost and being that is 8 yds it will be wieghing in over 32000lbs increase cost time and labor of forming. Sorry for the rambling.
So my question would be could i build a closed form 4.5 inches thick 12" rebar bed also with a small mesh reinforcement and pour with aircrete?
The form would be completely sealed except at peak of roof to pour.
Would i be able to do a monolithic 8yd pour?
The span from large supporting steel would be 5'
Any questions please ask.
My wife and 3 children have been the only labor thus far on this job and wed love to finish it that way
