What do they say about counting chickens before they hatch.

It was just all going too well, hoping to have a slab by Friday.

I was introduced to my Site Supervisor today which was good but the happiness only lasted a minute. He informed me that the men had to walk off site today because of a problem with the garage not fitting properly onto the back compound fence (that council stipulated we had to keep). Now we have to check plans with the Construction Certificate company. Hopefully it will be ok. If not, its back to Council with another S96 and $1650 for them to tick it off. Taking another month. I feel so disheartened, my prayers of being in by Christmas are fading like smoke. :( We'll see what happens tomorrow.

Here are the pictures of todays progress

Looking North over the waffle pods (I love saying that word 'waffle pod', waffle pod- it sounds like a kids lolly). Plastic is down and they have put little orange skirts on the pipes.

More reo and waffle pods, they really have run out of room to put everything

The pipes all have pretty little skirts on.


  1. Oh no, sorry to hear things have stalled. Was it an existing garage that council said you had to keep? Or, will a new garage not fit?
    Is Murray your SS?
