We now have a fair few screw piers put in so it looks like the plumbers and electrician weren't on site to do their work on Thursday so hopefully it happens on Monday so they can pour the slab on tuesday.

I also thought i would see what the brick and the render colour will look like in the sun and i think we are pretty pleased with our choices :)

The A&L is for the window frames and the A4 colour sheet is the Dulux Silkwort for the render.

Just ignore the red folder and the white foam between the bricks because we are having natural mortar not off-white.

A LOO!!!!!!

We finally have a porta-loo and some fencing!!

They also put some very rough pegs with some pink paint in the ground to mark out the corners of the house.

They also kept the pile of rubbish that was on our block of land before they started and i hope they will remove it for us.

So the day has finally arrived!!

We met with the SS this morning and we rocked up to find that the site scrape had already begun and was nearly finished.

The SS just talked us through the process and some formalities for insurance and OH & S purposes.  Some time this week the surveyor will come back and redo the pegs for the house and then the plumbers and network people will come out and do all the lead-ins for the nbn. 

On Tuesday they will start forming and possibly pouring the slab!!  Might have to have a slab party i think :)
