Not much movement to report this week.
Our drains were completed towards the end of the week though.

HBC has informed us that slab preparations have commenced and our slab pour will be completed next week.

This week the earthworks continued in preparation for our slab pour.
We popped out on Wednesday night and saw the concrete piers had been poured.

By Sunday our power box was up. I was hoping they would have our underground services done this week as our slab pour was scheduled for next week. So id say this will now happen first week of April.

You can see our broken fence panel in this photo caused by the neighbours builders.

We went out to the estate on Monday to clear the last of the concrete off our section, and guess what we found??? A excavator and a pile of soil all ready to start on Tuesday!

Our SS rung on Tuesday and our slab pour is scheduled for the 25th march with framing arriving on the 4th April. So we should have a slab by the end of the month exciting!
 This week they have done the site scrape and marked and levelled out where the slab will go. We also have a portaloo, skip bin and temporary fencing-WOOHOO house build is on people.....

We have a start date!!!!

HBC just rung my hubby and we have a site start date!!!
Next Tuesday the 11th it is finally going to happen... Seems to have taken forever to get to this point but we are here. So this weekend we will be going to check our section again to make sure its clear. As our neighbours builders are very grubby!!!! They love putting everything from dirt, pallets, concrete and rubbish on our section which is a bit of a pain!

Hurry up next Tuesday! I cant wait to have something to look at when we go out to Livingston instead of lovely mud full of weeds haha!
