Level up!

The second story frames started today. The ground floor looks bigger with a roof on it. No photos as I was there after work. I am really looking forward to seeing what tomorrow will bring.

Power up

Everything has now been delivered to complete our second level frames. It will all start going up from tomorrow. 

Yesterday my husband went out with a fantastic mate and ran the mains power to the house. 28 meters of trench. Very glad his mate brought his digger along.

Our home, now in 3D

Our first floor frames are up. 

They were delivered and mostly put up yesterday. I pulled past today and they were putting up joists for the second floor but there is no more frames there yet. 

Our steel beams will not be delivered until Friday next week so that will slow things down.

It's not raining. It's pouring.

Today they poured our slab.

It was so exciting to pull around the corner and see the concrete pump in action.

I will try to get back tomorrow morning to get a picture of the completed slab. Here is a pic of the guys in action...

Here it is the following day...

Impressed with my SUPERvisor

I could not resist sneaking back to the block the day after it was scrapped just to check it out all nice and level. I was very surprised to see that all of the piercing had been completed. Today (Sunday) I stopped in on my way past and was shocked that the form work had been completed. I am so impressed with our site supervisor. He told me he had only picked up our file on Wednesday. Fingers crossed for nice weather this week. We had rain Saturday but today was nice and Sunny.

The kids had to be dropped off early at school this morning so I thought I might drive by the block on my way to work. So glad I did. 

We not only have a sight fence, they were scrapping away out our block. I even got to meet my sight supervisor who had just pulled up. 

I was so excited. SS said I will be surprised how quick things go from here. I really hope so.
