Recieved a letter saying that completion date is 3rd of March. We hope they complete by this date as we are renting and want to move asap. Before we can move in we will be doing our tiles and carpet. The count down has begun!

frames & windows

Frames were delivered on the Wednesday, drove past on thurs to find the frames have started! Friday the windows were installed. Hopefully this week they can finish the roof! The progress is looking good.

Removal of soil

Was told by Allworth that we had to remove dirt as we've got a fair bit (58 piers at 2m each x 400mm diameter). Did not get an official price from them..however a mate quoted $3500!! We asked Allworth if we could put the dirt at the back. The dirt is mostly clay but was told we can use lime to break it down. We will use this soil to fill instead of buying soil later. On Thursday my hubby, brother and myself decided to move the dirt by wheel borrow. We were on a great start..however after a couple of long hrs it didnt seem like the pile was going down :( My hubby hired a dingo digger and moved 13t in 4hrs! It saved us so much money doing it this way.
We are told that the frames will be delivered on Wednesday, hopefully the rain will stop..

Didn’t think much was going to happen today as i assumed the concrete would need to dry. Drove past the land and noticed that plumbing had been done. The weather is not looking too good so they might not do much done till next week. Will post some pictures on the weekend.

We’ve started!!

Went to Allworth to give them all the papers they wanted us to hand in. Inquired when our commencement date would be.. to our surprise it was yesterday! (6/10/10)
We were so excited so we went to our land and YES our land has been scraped! So happy  We are told that our house should be completed in 15weeks. Allworth take a 5 week break for Christmas so we believe that we should get the keys in 19 weeks! Cant wait.
