Frame complete

We went and had a look today and were very surprised to see the windows in.  Then we got an email to say the frame was complete.  Plumber is booked for rough in next week and hopefully the brickwork will be done the week after Easter. 

Here are a few pictures:

Frame work has started

The frames were delievered to the site yesterday and when I drove past this morning, they had already done about half the house!!!!  On my way home from work this afternoon, this is what I saw:

I was so excited!!!  And shocked.  Couldn't believe how quickly they had put it all up.  Starting to look like a house!!!!!!!!!!!!

Concrete slab - we have one!!!

It was very exciting driving to work this morning and seeing the concrete truck at our site!!!!!  So now we have a proper slab.

The slab has begun

It's getting exciting now!!!  The land was excavated around the 7th March, and now we have a waffle pod.  It's amazing just how small the house looks right now!!!!!  I knew it was by no means a gigantic house but this is looking VERY small.  Fingers crossed it looks better once the walls are up.

Here are a few progress pics. 

The waste area (I know, thrilling!)

The silt fence

The beginnings of the house!!!!

The waffle pods are down

Hopefully we will have concrete soon!!!
