Sep 13, 2008
Making concrete blocks is an easy,and very profitable,business opportunity. You can start at home in your garage and easily make 100 cement blocks per working day using hand molds.

You need very little cash outlay since you can make the molds using plywood and sheet metal. Portland cement, gravel,sand and water are the ingredients used to make the correct concrete mix. You fill the molds by hand,take out the blocks and set them out to cure.

Concrete blocks are a staple of the building trades. They are used in building everything from big buildings to small backyard compost boxes. When you are a cement block manufacturer you can be sure there will always be a market for your product. They never go out of favor like a here today and gone tomorrow hula hoop.

The transportation of concrete products is expensive because of their weight and size. You do not have any transportation costs in selling to local buyers. You can sell to them at a very competitive price and yet make a very good profit.

Many building supply stores buy their concrete products from distant manufacturers which adds greatly to the final cost of the item. You will find them very happy with the better price you can afford to give them.

You can begin your concrete products business as a part time enterprise while continuing your employment. This makes it much simpler since you have no loss of earnings while you build your business from a small start.

You can then become a full time entrepreneur when your production and profits suggest this move. Working evenings and weekends alone can be very profitable and full time work will make you an excellent living.

When you are full time concrete block manufacturer you will need enough space to store and cure your cement blocks. You will also require a concrete block making machine which is capable of turning out hundreds of blocks per day.

Rented business premises will be necessary to contain the curing racks for your concrete blocks. You can readily purchase a machine capable of making all the blocks you can sell. It is an expensive tool however. The less costly method is to build a machine yourself.

From plans which are readily available you can build a very good concrete block machine from used auto parts,sheet metal and a few bits and pieces. It works every bit as well as any commercial machine. If you can't do the required welding a welding shop can do it for you at quite low cost.

This really good machine can turn out 800 concrete blocks per day quite easily. You can build it for a fraction of the price of a commercial model. You will certainly need a helper to remove the blocks from the machine to the curing racks. An employee,family member or business partner can fit into this role.

Besides making concrete blocks you can make patio slabs, garden ornaments,garden furniture,bird baths and a host of other items. These are highly profitable sidelines and plans are readily obtainable for all of them.

You can also be in the business of building with concrete blocks and build projects from garages,sheds and other buildings to small backyard needs such as compost boxes and barbeques. As the manufacturer of the concrete products you use,you will find this side of the business to be highly profitable.

Making concrete blocks and many other concrete products is an excellent way to earn your living. You can build,from the start,a great business which will bring you an excellent income. Enough in fact to afford a lot of the things you can only dream of while working at a job.
