    Default mixing concrete in the basement, ideas?

    Any suggestions on how to mix a bit of concrete in the basement?
    While I donít have a ton to do, it is more than a bucket to fill some small holes.
    Putting in a bathroom in my basement, had to bust out concrete to run piping.
    That is now complete, I need to fill it back in, and then leveling the floor out.

    Iím not sure of the total amount, and I donít think a cement mixer will go down my stairway and then into the room I need to get in.

    Wheel barrow or a plastic mix tote.

    Get a plastic tub from Home Depot and mix it by hand. Mixing up a wheelbarrow worth of concrete only takes a couple minutes with a shovel. Just use bags of Quikrete to redo the floor.

    We used a wheel barrow, shovel and a bunch of bags of quickcrete. Had to do 20' long, 12" wide, 6" deep.

    Agreed, if you can get a wheel barrow down the stairs its the easiest way to mix then pour.
