As if Friday’s weren’t good enough on their own, we woke this morning to find that our site has been scraped and piers have been drilled – all unbeknown to us.
The above picture, and this wonderful news was all thanks to our future neighbour, Amanda. Not only was she up early taking pictures, but was out talking to the tradesmen, allowing them to use their water tap, to facilitate the drilling of the piers. Supposedly they’ll be using close to 600L of water, so here’s hoping Metricon will reimburse them. After all, isn’t there supposed to be water onsite before the piers are drilled?
There was no call from Metricon, nor the promised call from our site supervisor, but frankly we could care less. We were not expecting the scrape to happen this week and, with all the rain we’ve been getting, didn’t really expect this to happen next week either. So now what?
It’s hard to say, without speaking to our site supervisor, when they’ll actually start pouring the slab. It’s dependent on a number of factors really, but one thing is for certain… We’ve officially started the build process!
Update (10:30am): Drilling of the piers has begun.
