Slab base done

Went for a drive by earlier in the week and there were piles of fill added to our block. Obviously we didn't have enough soil and I arrived as truck after truck was arriving and dropping mounds of additional dirt for our base.

Here are some photo's from Wednesday:

Top right of the street looking across our block

Looking from the left of our block across to our neighbour and obviously have some retaining to do at the front there on the right.. Once the house is built with this view we will actually be looking at our garage doors as they come off the house on a right angle.

Went by today and it's all been cut and smoothed out ready for piering. Hopefully this means, give or take the weather, that next week will hear from our Site Manager and go out for our piering inspection.

I think once the slab is poured, this will be filled and battered down to level land so shouldn't be too high off ground level once complete. Looks high now even without the slab.

From the back of the house pad looking at the garden we have left over.

 Top of the driveway down to the house area and then back garden, which goes almost the to the rear tree line.

I'll update again once there is something more interesting to see. Hopefully not too far away but the forecast isn't looking too sunny for the week ahead. Finger crossed though.


  1. Thanks, it's just so nice to see something happening - how are you going?

    1. Going ok, we are now waiting for frames to start going up. Slab was finished so quickly.
