The concretors started today. Due to our odd shaped block there’s a helluva lotta concrete! Our setback is 19m and we decided to put in a parking/reversing bay. On Saturday we went out there with both cars and practised doing 3-point turns in our front yard and used to spray paint to mark up where we wanted the concrete to go. The concretors then excavated to those lines.
They’ve got a start on the reinforcement and need to do the front which will happen tomorrow and we are scheduled for a pour on Wednesday.
It was really exciting to see it all boxed up and our vision coming to life. It was the most progress we had seen in a long time.
We also had our electrician come out on Friday and lay some conduit that will go under the concrete. One for the security cameras and one for hardwired driveway lighting.
In the past week, since handover…
Bentley paid us the balance of our liquidated damages today. One of our rubbish bins has been delivered (super efficient Council). I’ve booked a TV man to come and set up the antenna and splitter box tomorrow. NBN is working (allegedly, I’ll believe it when I connect. I don’t believe that NBN connection can be so simple and happen so quickly.) I’m waiting on a window tinting guy to get back to me with a time to come and measure and quote. We’ve put together a lot of flat pack furniture and our 4 year old has amazed us with how helpful she is when it comes to putting furniture together. We’ve got some drawers in our WIR and our girls have desks and chairs in their rooms. We have given notice on our rental and booked a removalist for Tuesday 8 May. I’ve even started packing.
