“Thank you for the very comprehensive concrete foundation DVD.  I was given a quote of $2,200 to build a 20 X 20 foot concrete pad for a summer house.  Your DVD just saved me over $1500! It is very clear that I can do the majority of the work myself and save a lot of money. It was worth every penny.  Thanks for a great product.”  –B. Richards, Vancouver, BC
