Things have dried out a bit this week. New bearers for some of front of the house which had borer damage. Front remaining room had to be jacked up and levelled (60mm difference!). Some timber delivered to site and the next thing you know the first frame went up. Another milestone.

Footings were finished. More floorboards removed. Plumbing and electrical to island bench. Hydronic coils laid to slab area. Lots of decisions for locations of boiler and plumbing etc. Aiming for a natural grey polished slab with 7mm bluestone, minimally exposed. Slab laid on Saturday, on a very wet day!

1 July was the kick off date. Lots of demo this week. Not much of the original house remains. We'd already removed the back shed and all the garden ourselves. Talk about a blank canvas! It was a windy week too. Some asbestos, but no real surprises as yet. I've lost count of how many skips have come and gone from site.
