Yesterday the structural preparations for the slab began. Black plastic now covers our patch of dirt. Trenches around the foundations now lies steel rebar, in readiness for the slab pour.

There’s lots of wooden boards bordering the slab area, ready to frame out for the cement pour, along with plenty of mesh for the slab along with plastic stands to elevate the steel.

Late last night we received a tip that a truck had delivered something to our block (it’s handy having friends around the corner). Naturally we took a drive to site (my second for the day) and found a small house of styrofoam which will be used for our slab which is known as a ‘waffle-pod’ slab.

We’re meeting our Site Manager at 1pm today, if everything goes well we’ll either be slabbed today or Monday.

Amazing progress this week.
