If it doesn’t rain it pours…or however the saying goes. Mum did a quick walk past the block today and found that the Zen guys were hard at work dropping piers and beginning to form up in readiness for our slab. We still haven’t physically seen the block ourselves yet (that will have to wait until Saturday) but thanks to my parents who live just around the corner, and the brilliance of smart phones, we are kept updated with every little change. From the images I was sent today it seems that our slab looks MASSIVE. Let’s hope we still feel that way when it is laid.
Looks like our neighbours at Lot 1427 have had their frames put up, and our back-neighbours are installing some form of retaining wall. My fear from this perspective is that our backyard looks tiny!! Until Saturday…

Yesterday we signed our building contract…finally! It has taken us a very long time along a very arduous road but we’re here. I couldn’t believe the dramas we had with council – but that is another story for another time. What I’m here to state (finally) is that our land has been CLEARED!
With word from our builder that our slab could be poured as early as next Wednesday, it’s heartening to see that we’ve finally had some movement, and still in 2012!
