Raising pier (in-process photo)

Raising pier (in-process photo)

Got tired of my 30-degree horizon over 6-ft walls in my observatory so I’m adding 18” concrete pedestal to pier. I used coupler and 18” setup studs to connect with old bolt location and I’m finishing up rebar work before covering with concrete form. Will use concrete bonding agent on old surface and pour up to 2” below threaded attachment point for bisque pier. I still have my concrete mixer from original pier work and bought six 80-lb bags yesterday.
