Could anybody give advice regarding shuttering for a concrete pour....?
I’m in the early stages of making a concrete base for a garden room which will be about 5x5m.
I don’t want to dig down anymore (I need to raise it up if anything), as I can get enough slant for a toilet waste pipe).
Is it ok to build up shuttering using pressure treated 9x2’s, which will be securely staked into the ground, then use a whacker plate to tamp down 3” of mot type 1....and then fill the remaining 6” with poured concrete.
But my main query being - is it ok to leave the shuttering in situ so it holds everything in place - especially the m.o.t?
Sorry if my details area bit vague - I can give more details if it helps provide an answer.
Any help/ advice is very much appreciated.
