Even though the construction team had sent us photos of formwork being set-up and the slab being poured we still wanted to visit the block and check on progress for ourselves.
Now the concrete has been poured we have a better feel for how the house sits on the block and how much space we’ll have for gardens and other non house-related structures .
The obligatory front of house shot. Should I ask them to move the toilet to the side so I don’t have 6 months of photos with a toilet sitting in the middle of picture?
The garage (closest to camera), entry hallway and office (farthest from camera).
Rear of the house with step down to alfresco area.
This ‘cut out’ section of the slab will hopefully provide some added light and a green view from the home office.
Step down into the alfresco. As funds allow we’ll get a timber deck built over the concrete.
Unfortunately communication has failed somewhere along the line and the size of the alfresco doesn’t match the dimensions indicated on our construction plans (see below). The Alfresco is supposed to extend 1 metre beyond the boundary of the main slab, providing more space for furniture and people when friends come to visit. We’ve advise our site supervisor so we’ll wait to hear from him on Monday.
