Week 2

I’ve only been to the house twice this week.  On Monday it was raised and by the end of the week the new steel posts were cemented in place.

I went to the house yesterday to have a look around.  It’s a bit of a mess out the back but the excavators have unearthed some hidden treasures junk.

Electricity has been off for a week and look at the state of the pool.  The builders will be working upstairs this week and will need the power so we can prevent the pool turning into a green swamp.

We’re nearly ready to start.  We’ve found a bank happy to lend us the money to do the house.  We’ve now just got to find somewhere to live for a while and completely clear out all the stuff under the house!

We’ve rented some storage space and this afternoon we made a significant dent in the ‘pile’.

We also have to get rid of the hardwood timber battens and doors.  If anyone in Brisbane might know of someone who could use them, please let me know.  The timber is in very good condition and was put up in the last ten years.  We’ve also got to get rid of the front and back stairs too if anyone’s interested in them.
