How quickly a week can change perspective!  And what a mixed week it has been!! 

Lots of  progress, accompanied with lots of stress L, and surprisingly, homesickness (on my part) for our old town... 

They told us at the Owner-Builder course that it is all about communication.  Ok, we know that, we knew that, we thought we were on top of it – but we weren’t - and we had a few mix ups this week that would have been better to avoid – but, thankfully it is all with a happy ending (so far) J!

Our concretor has been!  Twice!  Firstly to do the set out and dig the foundations and secondly to put out the rebar etc – after the plumbers had been.

So, our plumbers have been too!  Great team at South West Environmental Plumbing, Mat Lepidi and his offsider, Kent J.

And our pest control man has been!!  We are looking forward to the healthier product we have chosen with JyeBarnett at Ecological Pest Control.

And our building supervisor, Richard, has been J.

And hubby put in his electrical conduit where it needs to go J.

 And the shire have been notified of our intention to pour the slab.


So, this sunset marks a new dawn for us – I think we will be finally be able to call ourselves home builders tomorrow!  Tomorrow the concrete will be poured for our new home – and to me that is the start of building!! 


I can hardly wait!!!
