Under floor drainage and power – Day 10 – September 2, 2017

A full week of ‘construction time’ has passed between site visits so hopes were high that we’d see some action. We weren’t disappointed.

The first thing we noticed was a toilet, skip bin and signage identifying our building site. Minor things but they helped give the block that ‘building site’ feel.

This week they’ve installed under floor drainage and power so that these services are available in the required location after the slab is poured.

Looking forward to more progress next week.

Site Cut – Day 1 – August 24, 2017

1 year, 11 months and 14 days (714 days) after we placed the sold sticker on our previous home we’ve finally started construction on our new home in Torquay.

Site cut was carried out on the block today in preparation for sewer connection and slab preparation.

It hasn’t changed the view much (it’s still an empty block) but it means a lot to see some activity that’s a part of the overall construction process.

The block was already relatively level so not much earth-moving was required.
