Have any of you built a structure using slip forms? I've been looking into it some. There is some good info out there about it. But I'd like to hear from someone that has actually done the work. Any info you might share would be well received- thanks- Mike

Mike I have worked on some slip form construction. Building a feed mill. It took months to build and set the forms. Went about one hundred seventy feet the actual pour took about seven day. A lot is involved hydraulics electrictians welders carpenters labors even bosses and inspectors. Are you looking into having a job done or doing it yourself?

I am in the process of building a slip form house on some land in Colorado. The attached gif is a partially completed shed which will house my batteries and tools. Its a lot of work, slow going, but non-the-less, fun. Good luck.
