Less than 12 hours to go till the concrete truck arrives and the pour begins. Matty and I are feeling excited, nervous, worried, exuberant all at the same time. A minor (major) crisis was averted today as Matt found out that the formwork was 40 mm shy of the expected height. A somewhat cruisy day turned out to be a full on day fixing other people’s stuff ups.
Despite the frustrations, Matty managed to get everything done for the 7am start tomorrow morning (along with extending the height of the formwork to the required 100mm). Here are some pics to commemorate the day:
This house has a few little quirks, but the most extravagant is probably the in-ground fish tank. Matt got the fish-way channel set up so that the fish can swim within the house (initially), and then outside when we open up the channel to connect to the outside fish pond.
Now all that remains is all things to go smoothly tomorrow. The rain has eased, hopefully so will our anxious trepidations.
