They started on our block! After not visiting since Friday Chris went up yesterday and they had started the site cut! It looks like it still needs to be compacted but it certainly looks very different! We will also need to build three retaining walls this weekend - by we I mean Chris :)

It's much higher than we anticipated so we've decided to retain the back and put some steps in the middle to take you down to the back yard. Chris took a ground level photo and you can see it's nearly as high as the 2.3m acoustic fence!

We rang Adam yesterday to find out when we can come in and start the retaining but he didn't call us back. Hopefully he will call us today as we also want to say thanks for starting!!!

Here's some pictures:

Ground level (you should be able to see the top of the fence in the distance):

Front left hand corner (we need to put retaining walls in there):
