We have a slab! We haven't had a chance to go out and look at it yet due to sickness in my household but again I can thank my lovely neighbour for taking pics for me!  Thank you so much Bec :)
We are so excited and can't wait to go and check it out, take more pics and get a real feel for the layout.    I will post some more pics of the slab when we get some :)
Slab Dancing!

Formed up and ready to go!

I am just loving this building stage.  It is so exciting seeing all of the things happening on the block.  Yesterday they did all of the forming up and put all of the foam pads in that sit under the slab.  I'm hoping that the slab was done today.  I have my Mum checking for me later this afternoon..thanks Mum :).  I have attached a photo below of the foam pads.  Thanks to my lovely neighbour who took the photos for me!

Excavation Day

Well the day has finally arrived!  Now the excitement has really kicked in.   This morning we met with our lovely SS Andrew.  He was really nice and I think he is going to be great.  Really down to earth and friendly :)  We hung around for a little while watching the land being excavated.  I know that doesn't sound very exciting but it definitely was for us.  I'm just so excited that the build has started.  Our SS told us that everything has been booked in for the next two weeks and that the frames are due to arrive on the 21st to start on the 22nd.  So, if this weird rainy day doesn't hang around we should have a slab in 2 weeks! YAY

Still Waiting......

Well, tomorrow marks two weeks since we have had council approval and we are still waiting for Coral to give us a start date!  They told us it would be 2 weeks max so hopefully we hear something tomorrow!  I just really need something to look forward to at the moment.  Really lacking motivation and excitement.  Come on Coral, give us the call tomorrow!!!???  ;)
