Time to start a thread of our own. Been watching others and learning loads for ages now. And it looks like our slab will be poured in the next week or so. Plans are done, bricks and windows are chosen and cant wait till it all starts moving. Site scrape was done last week and plumber coming on tuesday. We have chosen a simple plan and plan to make the most of our views. our block [ img ] Plan [ img ] Scrape [ img ]
No you're not crazy just excited to see things happen. We lived in a rental about 10 minutes walk from our block and used to pop by almost every day ... my DH would drive me crazy as he doesn't work he was able to walk past with the dog during the day when workmen were in the house but he didn't pop in and take any pics for me
_________________ For info on our build: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=43093 Built the McLaren by Dechellis - slab down 22 Feb - handover 30 Aug 2011 - and gardens finished 9 Dec 2012!!
lesley-I'm in South West Vic too.... just outside Warrnambool!
Well hi neighbour. We are in Camperdown. Do you have a build thread. I probably just cant find it.
Now that the slab is done, We are soo excited. But is it normal to think it looks smaller than we expected??? We are thinking our rooms are going to be tiny??
Anyway, we planted some hedge plants up the sides of our block over the last few weeks, just to get them established a good bit ahead of our move. We went up today to check out the slab and water our new little plants, and the bloody builders have used our brand new hose, which would be fine, but they burst it right in the middle. So now we have to run up and down with a watering can to keep our wee plants alive. Not happy at all.

Hi Lesley W - yes the slab looks small when down - had the same problem when ours was poured - I was measuring the slab using steps it it seemed very small - got worried it's just a trick of the eye...
Nice location and views you have there - just beautiful. Would be interested to see the elevations of the house as well.
