Day 1

What an exciting week it has been. We were shocked to drive past the block to find that we have a start date! The digger was in full swing cutting into our block to get ready for the plumbing and slab preparation.

I was expecting more of a cut in given that our block is on a bit of a hill. The block looks huge. I’m also excited by the embankment on the right hand side that is already shaping as a lovely raised bed for my future vegetable garden.

The overwhelming emotion is relief that after 12 months of paperwork – and waiting – we are finally at day one. I didn’t really appreciate how long it would take from the day we got a quote to the day the site would be open for business. I’ve never done this before; maybe it just takes this long.
