2 October 2010 - After plenty of rain throughout September leaving us with a very soggy block we finally have our slab. I must say the wait was rather excruciating.

Electricity and Water

24 August 2010 - The developers of the estate have planted a tree in our nature stripe today. It's a little Gum Tree.

25 August 2010 - We have been pegged out and by the looks of things the builder has kindly built us a swimming pool where are garage was going to be.

26 August 2010 - We have pipes along with a big mushy mess!

27 August 2010 - We have electricity and even more mush! The pole with the red top and wires sticking out is the electricity. There will be a meter box attached to this soon.
Who's idea was this to build during our wettest winter in a decade!
