A week behind.

So the rain has pushed our renovation schedule back by a full week because it rained 3 days and the builders had to wait a couple of days until the site dried out before they could do the next bit. Somewhat unfortunately for us that meant that we were woken up at 7.30 in the morning on a Saturday by the sound of metal being dragged across concrete directly outside our window. Ugh.

Reo installed over the foundations in preparation for the concrete slab
The backyard looked like a swimming pool after the heavy rain that we had last week so waiting a few days for it to dry out was unavoidable. All the reinforcing steel has been installed for the slab, so the under-floor heating can be wired up ready for the concrete to be poured this week. Very exciting! Fingers crossed that we don't get any more rain to hold us up this week.

Looking good, ready for pouring (concrete, not rain please!)
And yes, they are my precious ghost chairs strewn casually about the backyard building site. I don't want to talk about it, okay?


  1. ooo yay - progress!
    here's hoping the weather gods will be kind to you this week.

  2. Bugger about the rain. Hopefully they might be able make some time up at some point.

    Under floor heating is the BEST thing EVER! My mum and dad have it. If I ever build I am definitely putting it in.

  3. Sending good thoughts for nice weather! Sweet blog!

  4. Renovating certainly tests one's patience! Hope the weather behaves itself from now on in.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
