where are we?

Alright it took me while to update my blog.

What to say, I was just enjoying the Australian summer.

As for our building Adventure, this is what happened in the last few months since my last update.

December 2009:

After pushing the builder to make a start on our site, we finally had the excavation of land in the first week of the month, followed by piering & finally the slabs by the 17th of December. That was just a week before the Xmas holidays & 10 days before our deadline to meet the First home owners (FHOG) requirements.While I was happy in the end, I was disappointed with the builder in leaving things to the eleventh hour.

January 2010:

Not much happened in January as the builders were enjoying their holidays & around the end of January the Frames were delivered & finally the frames went up by the beginning of February.

February 2010:

After the frames went up in early February, Sydney was blessed with some much deserved rain for a couple of weeks which has to date stopped our project. The building supervisor called me yesterday to advise that the brickwork will start by this week. So fingers crossed again....
