The past month has been frustrating with unnatural amounts of rain being the main culprit. Despite the delay, progress has been made on other fronts, like building a chook pen, getting some chooks, setting up the veggie patch and picking up other building materials such as tiles and windows.
The rain finally eased off about two weeks ago, and Matt hired Rob to come in and dig the slab footings.
Once those were in place, Matt was busy pumping water out of them two days later (thanks to the glorious rain), then finally started putting the clinka fill in (more about clinka here).
Two labourers assisted with doing the form work and putting up the mesh, finally getting the foundation ready for the pour.
We got final approval for the slab pour, now all that remains is for the concrete mob to arrive and do the deed. Fingers crossed there is no more unpredictable rain!
