The slab

Yay, we have a slab down! Was laid on Wednesday. Still looking a bit wet. Now looking forward to seeing a frame delivered (just like every next step in the build!)

Certainly looks different with a slab down and is good to make out the rooms and get a better feel for the house.

The waffles are down!

Thought we would drive by the land this evening and to our surprise saw that the waffle pods and steel had been laid. Pleasant surprise considering the weather this week and the rain this morning. Last night it was pretty wet and thought unless the sun is out for a few days they wouldn't get laid for some time. So hooray and now fingers crossed this weather holds off for them to lay the slab sometime this week!!!

The plumbing

Yay another drive by today and the plumbers had been. Really starting to look like a house with the pipes all sticking out of the ground. Makes it easier to make the rooms out.

Hoping the rain stays away for the waffle pods and steel to go down for the slab tomorrow. Still have not heard from any one from McDonald Jones.

The waffles and maple syrup

Yeah well maybe not those kind of waffles but the big foam ones and some steel for the slab :)

Where were the plumbers? Hopefully they do their stuff tomorrow!

Lots of Waffle Pods

The loo and fencing

The port-a-loo and fencing are now residents on our land... Hoping this means more progress in the coming week.

The Scrape

Things are moving along this week. We were red pegged and today we were scraped. Looks different with no grass/weeds on it and all levelled out.

Be good to see if the next step happens tomorrow???

Lachlan in his PJs again excited to see the land scraped and the girls photobombing in the background.
