Ok so maybe it's not a feature film production (despite feeling like one) but our house is finally under construction! I've taken some pictures of the 'action' to date - they delivered the bricks on monday (all 13 odd palates of them) as well as some of the plumbing supplies. Then on tuesday they dug the trenches and laid the plumbing! Unfortunately, the SS advised us that they hit rock so there goes our $3000 provisional sum in our contract for rock excavation!
The slab is being boxed today and then the concrete trucks are scheduled to arrive tomorrow to start pouring our slab!! We have to spend the long weekend building three retaining walls - we are short on willing bodies to help this time round so it looks like even I'm going to be helping! (hmmm I wonder if they make high heels for retaining wall building ;) ) We also discovered that the Polytank is going to cut off our side access - we enquired about changing to a Slimline but it was going to cost us over $2500 to do this as the plans needed redrafting, resubmitting to council etc etc... Oh well, I guess we just need to go on diets so we can fit round the water tank!
