The concreters do not remove old concrete and bricks so it was left to a mates company (Rafferty The Wrecker) to remove all the old crap.

They did and it pi++ed with rain last nite which does not help


Mud

More Mud


The concreter arrive tomorrow.....

Default More Earthmoving

The concrete guy's were there yesterday and they removed 200cubic meters of clean soil.

They levelled the site ready for the footings.

First issue, the sewer pit is 4.5 meters under the original outlet pipe
as it has to be moved the plumber has some digging to do .

Tractor

Clean site

Drive

That's a fair old soil cut Stiff, how deep are your foundations to be?

Looks like you are building the Taj Mahal after all??!!

Guy's,


The slab is going ontop of the level as you look at it.

The builder ses out the job tomorrow, the sparky lays his cables tomorrow, the plumber on Monday, the slab on Tuesday.

The brickie is starting 5-7 days after the slab is layed.

I think Stiffy might have the decimal point in the wrong spot for his quantities, just make sure your not paying by the cubic meter to remove the soil Stiffy.
