Build Week 2 - Foundations

This week was the real start of the project with the foundations being poured. Monday to Wednesday was spent completing the foundation excavations and getting them passed by the building control and warranty inspectors.

At 7:45 on Thursday morning the concrete pump lorry arrived. Over 5 hours 10 concrete lorries came and went, and 60 cubic metres of concrete was poured in the foundations and infilling the existing retaining wall. Without the pump lorry it would have taken about a week. Luckily it was a fine day and all went very well.

Friday saw the start of the masonry so we now feel we are now well and truly under way.
