The beginning of the man cave...

The framing has commenced for the downstairs man cave.

Looking down from the top of the block. There was an excavator guy there doing a site clean. 

Quite a few pellets of bricks have also been delivered. Looks like the piers may be getting bricked up next week. 

We spoke to the excavator driver who said he will be there tomorrow too finishing the clean up. 

It's been great to see some frames go up!

The slab was meant to be poured in Wednesday 10th July. This didn't happen because the concreters missed some steel work in the garage. So... He fixed that on Thursday 11th July. 

Friday 12th July we got our slabs!! Both the man cave the garage slabs were poured today!!

We have been told they will let the slabs sit there for 5 to 7 days before the framers start their work.

Delays & slab preparation

More delays for us. So....

This week they hit more rock whilst preparing for the man cave slab so that set us back a couple of days. 

We had the base for the slab prepared this week. 

This is the garage

The damn rock... 

More damn rock...

Me standing in the garage. That's pretty deep! I think the slab is going to be very solid! 

Inspection was booked today with the view of boxing and pouring the slab next week.

Our electricity was also finally connected by the provider. 

All going to plan we should have a slab by the end of next week. ***crossing fingers***
