Monday 28th February - The first blocks

Drains were all dug and in place this week. We've also decided to have a timber floor rather than solid (building inspector insisted on a steel mesh, tied into the footings with a 9" base) or block and beam (more expensive).
I've started moving the kitchen into the dining room as a temporary set-up, but we need to make the changeover as quick as possible to ensure we always have a washing machine and dishwasher. Baby could be here any day now.
The blocks arrived but it's been slow going due to the weather. They can't lay them when it's sub-zero, so as soon as they arrived nothing happened. Due to this, the builders came in on Saturday and started !
Here's Tony making sure things are on the level.

I love the progress animation on the side there, that's very cool.


p.s. - Give more news on this baby situation, boy or girl? What names are picked out, etc.
