This week saw a fair amount of activity on the site, all rebar shaped and footings laid, columns and beams (ground level) being poured.
Metal forms used for all concrete pours, resulting in nice and clean lines.
Notice the nice and tidy site, mainly due to nobody living on-site, but also all of the chaps and lasses working are locals, and I'm sure they respect the fact that this area is quite unspoiled.
2 plastic septic tanks, plus two drain-away's (stacks of concrete rings) also installed at back of house.
Had to move one of the trees away from the build as it was too close to the house roofline... tree now moved to a position near to the gateway and well. The soil is a bit better up in that part of the land, plus there is more moisture in the soil owing to proximity of the nearby hill, so it should suit that tree quite nicely.
Next up will be the placing forms and pouring the extended wall posts, supporting piers and floor beams, ready for the precast concrete floor slabs to be dropped in later.
All moving along nicely.
