Thanks to our soon-to-be neighbour Amanda, we’ve discovered that we’ve had site peg out! So what does that mean?
The builder (and quite often the surveyor) pegs out the dwelling footprint from the design drawings. They start at a boundary corner, peg a corner of the building, then lay a string line to describe the perimeter of construction. If the building has walls that step in and out each wall and its change in direction will need to be located on the site. While it’s not huge progress, it’s progress nonetheless, and the first sign of progress on site. Props to Metricon for expediting this – it was ordered on Wednesday, and completed on Saturday.
Oh, and our neighbour three lots down has a builder that is sparing no expense for the tradies on site.
