Glad you were able to push through, nothing worse than something like that happening….. but don’t feel bad, Murphy helps out a lot around here too! That’s a fair bit of back and forth with a bucket full of cement!
You might consider getting the front tires foam filled. Not that expensive since they are small, and flats and other issues like you had will be a thing of the past.Slab is done.

The ready-mix was at the end of the driveway near the snowblower. So I was using the tractor from there to the slab.
About 20 loads away from being done, my front tire poped off. No time fix this. So I continued with a poped off tire for the rest. It was difficult, but still easier than a wheelbarrow. In the end, it seems like I haven't damaged the tire. But the wheel is full of mud. So I took it to a local car repair shop so that they can clean it. So now I don't have a tractor until monday...
At least I'm glad this part is done.
Never heard about this. Does the foam replace air completely?You might consider getting the front tires foam filled. Not that expensive since they are small, and flats and other issues like you had will be a thing of the past.
Did it on both my tractors long ago...never looked back.
Yes. No air in there at all. I actually now have all four tires on my BX foam filled. As does my son in law on his BX23S.Never heard about this. Does the foam replace air completely?
with a 24' span, I believe I would need a post in the middle, wich would be a bit cumbersome. Also, I would probably need a pad under that slab at that place.side note: If possible, consider installing an 8" tall I-beam on the N-S walls,with solid studs underneath.
You could use heavier 30# felt. Use extra tacks, especially around the edges. Maybe use temporary lath. Stay off until the dew/frost dries.Anyone have a suggestion on how to protect the OSB of the roof if I'm gonna need to wait before installing the shingles? I'm gonna need to build a false dormer and this part will be a challenge for me. So it might be a week or 2 before I can put the shingles on the rest of the roof. I'm guessing I can lay down the black paper and this should be good enough to protect for 2w. But apparently this is dangerous since I could slip if I walk on it.
Tarps would keep humidity but I guess it's the best I could do. Or am I overthinking this for 2w exposure? I feel like I'm gonna get mixed answers
