Week 2 – Site Progress!

Lots more progress in week 2, it really is happening very quickly now. Thursday was a very busy day for the builders, they finished off digging the last of the trenches and got the building inspector sign off just before the concrete arrived!!

3 full loads of concrete arrived one by one, luckily being a corner plot we could pour into 3 of the corners so only had to pull the concrete over to the fourth. Wellies were on and we were in the wet concrete. We managed to get plenty of footage on the time lapse camera and on the Ring.

Friday brought the excitement of the first delivery of blocks, around 800 footing blocks in total. As we are keen to get our hands dirty and save some money we volunteered to move them all from the front of the plot to where they are needed. This was back breaking work but we got help from Caz’s mum and dad and managed to get them moved by Sunday afternoon, just in time for our Wren kitchens design appointment. The Dodsons couldn’t resist the Leeds United graffiti opportunity.

All the blocks are now randomly scattered around site ready for the builders who are back on Tuesday to carry on, hope they appreciate our efforts.
