Not like the old days, eh... when you had REAL builders and REALl chippys. My gradfather would roll over in his grave if he knew how houses were being built... thrown up these days. Can't really call it building anymore, it's more like factory made and can assembled on-site by a not-too-skilled labourer and a handful of offsiders.
Oh well, that's how it's done these days, and if the house is sturdy and livable afterwards, that's all that really matters, hey!
Seriously, it is coming together nicely and beginning to take shape for you, Nimbin, though there's not nuch yard left now the slab's down. Yeah, I know, you're gonna say "but all the less there is to mow and weed out, not to mention less expense on mower fuel and fertiliser.".
Yup, I get you there! I got no green thumb and I'm not one for gardening. Frankly, if it were me, I'd have had the slab from fence to fence in both directions... then get some of that spray on grass for the left over bits once the house was up.
Again, Nimbin and partner, all the best with it and I hope it all keeps going according to plan.
