Day 17: More digging

25 11 2012

During the week we noticed new site markers were on the footpath which we suspect were from the site surveyors completing another site survey.  Yesterday morning (Saturday) we drove past the block to see trucks and a digger on site doing more work on our block.

We are now getting a better idea of how the house will sit on the block. While we always knew that there would be a deep cut on the block, seeing it now has made us start to think about the degree of landscaping and additional retaining walls we will need. At the moment we are struggling to get our head around what exactly we will do to transform the great big slope at the back of the block into a functional backyard for our kids. Another research project is underway.

Also earlier in the week, Alice introduced herself as our new Customer Service Coordinator (CSC).

You can see we will have a deep cut towards the back


Day 4 & 5: Site cut and fill

The site cut and fill was completed yesterday, day 4 – it only took 2 days of work.  The digger was removed from the the site today.

We are scheduled to meet with Site Manager, Simon, on site next Tuesday.

Next is the retaining walls….
