first site visit!!

just got back from site with the builder (chris), the electrician (paul) and the plumbers (bruce and damian). zac and i have been given our instructions as to how and where to dig the trench for all the services, and we sorted out some issues in regards to location of meter boxes and the like. too easy. the easter weekend will be dedicated to digging said trench. can't wait!

finance complete

that is it. papers signed and submitted. we are in. it is done. i feel all light headed and dizzy. and may vomit. well, no turning back now.

the builder has informed me that site works will start in a matter of days, and he is setting up a meeting with the electrician and plumber to determine where zac and i need to dig the trench...trench party, anyone?

...i just vomited a little in my mouth thinking about slab pours and such things...i've done it before but this one is MINE. i'm good at what i do so i shouldn't be worried, but i am anyway. i have good builders and good consultants so it should all go as smooth as any build does...let the countdown begin!
