welcome to demolition ranch oh wait this
00:02
is texas barn dominion
00:03
sorry anyway so today we are starting
00:06
the demolition ranch headquarters this
00:09
is going to be a place for them to
00:11
when they were working here on the range
00:14
to come in
00:15
get their supplies uh maybe hang out and
00:18
uh you know brainstorm
00:21
whatever research anything they need to
00:23
do this is gonna be the place for them
00:24
to
00:25
hang out
00:31
[Music] 00:56
do
01:03
[Music] 01:10
all right so what we’re doing here is
01:11
we’re squaring up the foundation
01:14
this is obviously the first step and as
01:17
you guys can see we do not use battery
01:18
boards
01:19
we we put a stake right here and then
01:21
another one
01:22
back there and then we shoot a parallel
01:25
line
01:26
over there as long as these two lines
01:29
are parallel with each other
01:32
then we can square it up so right now
01:35
what you’ve seen is that they’re
01:36
shooting
01:37
the diagonal the way we get the diagonal
01:40
is a squared plus b squared equals c
01:42
square
01:42
once we have our parallels we mark a
01:44
corner there
01:46
we shoot our diagonal to there then we
01:49
get this dimension here which we already
01:50
know shoot the diagonal again
01:53
mark that corner and then when we last
01:55
is when we mark this left side or when
01:57
we measure
01:58
it needs to measure exactly what this
02:00
one measures which is already a given or
02:02
a known distance
02:03
if it doesn’t measure that then
02:04
something’s wrong the beauty of this
02:06
system is
02:07
it’s really fast and if you really need
02:10
to get a lot done
02:11
real fast and you have a side for
02:13
example you’re pulling off of a fence
02:16
let’s just say 20 feet or something then
02:18
you can actually start forming that side
02:20
without
02:21
ever squaring up because that side is
02:22
never going to move so you can also
02:24
actually just start working
02:25
there but anyway that’s what we’re doing
02:27
here and as soon as we’re done with uh
02:30
squaring it up because we want to make
02:32
sure that matt sees
02:33
where it’s going to be and make sure
02:36
that he approves it
02:37
and once he approves it then
02:41
at that point we can start forming
02:47
all right so now that we got it squared
02:48
up like i said we do not use better
02:50
boards so
02:50
we just have a stake here stake over
02:52
there so just four stakes
02:54
these two lines are parallel to each
02:56
other and then we
02:59
shoot our diagonals we get our
03:00
hypotenuse so hypotenuse is
03:02
something you learn like in ninth grade
03:04
i know at the time you’re sitting there
03:06
going when am i ever gonna use this well
03:08
this is when you use it okay once you
03:10
have a hypotenuse you can make anything
03:12
perfectly square so that’s what we do
03:15
because we don’t have to guess about the
03:16
diagonals a lot of people just shoot
03:17
diagonals and as long as they match
03:19
they call it good well that’s not in my
03:21
opinion good enough
03:22
so long story short that’s what we do
03:25
shoot our diagonals
03:26
yes sir how much am i getting paid today
03:28
uh you’re getting paid
03:30
a lot yeah you’re getting paid with
03:33
likes good
03:34
let’s play uh matt with my like today
03:37
yeah there you go
03:39
let’s play them with likes so like this
03:41
video how many likes does it take matt
03:44
five thousand oh five thousand likes
03:48
you heard the man five thousand likes we
03:50
gotta pay him up
03:51
he’s gotta man’s gotta eat that’s what
03:54
we’re gonna do right now as you guys see
03:56
we’re laying out the panel forms
03:57
so this slab’s gonna be pretty low in
03:59
the back we’re gonna start with about
04:01
just four inches off the ground but as
04:02
you can see once we get
04:04
out here to the front it’s gonna be
04:05
about 16 inches off the ground
04:07
which is what we talked about on the
04:08
last episode so they’re going to lay out
04:10
the forms first and then
04:13
start swinging that sledgehammer you’re
04:16
going to swing a sledgehammer matt
04:18
yeah yeah i think i can handle that all
04:19
right we’ll see
04:21
see they’re putting up the panel forms
04:24
put a stake here
04:25
then they put another one where the
04:26
panels meet
04:28
and that’s how they keep them lined up
04:36
you can see these forms because the
04:38
ground is not level
04:39
they are stair step because we need to
04:40
keep the forms level
04:43
so let me get on the other side so you
04:45
guys can see
04:48
see that right there so these forms are
04:50
actually taller than they need to be
04:53
but later we’re going to put what’s
04:55
called the tin lug
04:56
right there and that’s how we’re going
04:57
to set our level but right now they’re
04:59
stair stepping those
05:00
form because if you don’t stair step it
05:02
then you cannot get them to meet up
05:04
perfectly right there so that’s how
05:06
they’re doing that
05:08
we’re going to put our cameras away and
05:09
me and matt are going to start swinging
05:11
some sledgehammers giving these guys a
05:12
hand
05:13
see how that goes
05:20
there you go there you go
05:23
there you go
06:01
[Music] 06:09
[Music] 06:20
you guys can see we have the forms done
06:22
now we need to figure out how much fill
06:24
dirt we’re gonna need
06:25
for that we’re gonna have to take
06:28
a measurement in each corner how deep
06:30
the slab’s gonna be or the pad
06:32
and then we’re going to take an average
06:34
so we’re going to take four dimensions
06:35
divide it by four
06:36
that’s going to give us the thickness of
06:37
how much we need to build up our pad
06:40
all right once we do that
06:43
we have to convert it to feet because
06:45
our dimensions are going to be in inches
06:46
it’s going to get real boring but trust
06:48
me it’s going to get better
06:51
so anyway you convert everything to feet
06:53
and then you multiply
06:55
the thickness in feet times the square
06:58
feet
06:58
that’s going to give you cubic feet okay
07:00
we’re still not there yet because
07:02
everything you order when they say
07:03
concrete
07:03
they always say yards what they mean is
07:05
cubic yards
07:06
all right so we take that cubic feet
07:10
and we divided by 27 because there is 27
07:13
cubic feet
07:14
in one cubic yard right because one yard
07:16
is three feet so
07:17
if you imagine a cube that is one yard
07:19
by one yard by one yard
07:21
so it’s technically three feet by three
07:22
feet times three feet so
07:24
27 all right so that’s what we’re going
07:26
to do right now
07:28
alright so our corners measure 6
07:31
12 17 and 22 so we’re going to add
07:35
so we’re going to add them all up
07:36
together
07:38
which is 22 plus 17
07:42
plus 12 plus six 57
07:45
inches divide that by four it gives us
07:48
14 and a quarter
07:50
inches okay we have to subtract
07:53
the thickness of the concrete from that
07:56
so we’re going to subtract
07:58
we’re probably going to go four inch lab
07:59
here so we’re going to be at 10 and a
08:03
10 and a quarter inches i’m just going
08:04
to call for 12 because there’s gonna be
08:06
some compaction so let’s just call it
08:08
one foot
08:09
okay so the slab is 24 by
08:12
32 so it’s 768 feet times one foot
08:16
that’s 768 cubic feet divided by 27
08:21
we get 28 cubic yards of field dirt
08:24
that’s how much field dirt we need
08:26
so we’re gonna go ahead and order that
08:28
and the next step
08:29
is we’re gonna get our uh our guys to
08:32
come in here with a skid steer an
08:33
excavator and they’re gonna
08:34
cut up all the beams in here and put all
08:36
the filter in there
08:37
after they’re done we’re gonna do the
08:39
rebar and after the rebar
08:41
we pour concrete again we are building
08:43
the demolition ranch headquarters
08:46
matt is gonna tell you more of what that
08:48
means in the future
08:49
right you promise i have lots of plans
08:52
so there’s a lot of plans for uh
08:54
demolition ranch headquarters but that’s
08:55
what we’re building so now you know what
08:57
we’re doing
08:58
so subscribe to the channel if you
09:00
haven’t and we’ll see you guys next time
09:02
we are texas barnums
