I told my tractor that she would have to work for the new home so she leveled the area for the slab that took me 6 back breaking hrs to mix here is the pic

Looks like you are off to a great start. By mix, do you mean by hand in a wheelbarrow? If so, that is indeed a big and tiresome job?

That's definitely the worst part. Looks great,just curious how many bags? The most I ever mixed by hand was 18 bags...I sure slept good that night.

If that pad is say...  10' x 8' x 3.5"..  It's 23 1/3 yards of 'crete or ~39 80# bags..  

 

Mixing & moving it by hand would be quite a chore!  (Then you gotta finish it!)  

 

**I would have at least rented a mixer!  Keep posting pictures!

I did rent a mixer. But just getting the bags and lifting them they got heavy quick. It was 54 bags 80# a bag.
