Windows are up!

We noticed that our windows and doors were installed prior to Christmas Eve!  Everything looks good so far and we've had no dramas with MJD…..1st progress payment processed though for the slab which now means extra loan repayments! Just need to win the NYE lotto jackpot and we'd be set for life!

Frames are up!!! Christmas wish granted by MDJ

Santa aka McDonald Jones surprised us by putting up the frames and roof truss today….our windows were also delivered.  It's so exciting to see our house progress through the construction stage.  We wished for this stage to be completed by Christmas and it has come true - YAY!!!   Merry Christmas everyone, we look forward to moving in and being a part of this great community in 2012!!

SLAB Sunday!

Monday 5th December - Drove past on my way home from work to check out the freshly laid waffle pods and steel mesh reinforcing.  Looking good so far :-)

Sunday 11th December - Well didn't I get the surprise of my life when I drove by late this afternoon - Our SLAB!  Between Friday night and Sunday night the concrete fairy had paid our block a visit!  Happy curing slab & get ready for the next stages - our steel frames!

Who ever is doing the rain dance…..PLEASE STOP!

So with all this rain torturing us, there's not much hope of getting our slab down any time soon.  Site excavation happened 18/11 and the piers holes were drilled 29/11 - we are waiting waiting waiting for the weather to dry up so the waffle pods can be laid and slab poured.  I really wish the sun would come out for a few weeks so we can at least have frames up before christmas.
