I am a SAHM who does work from home occasionally, dedicated to raising 3 Godly, independent, healthy children. Loving the home building process though it is not without challenges. I have fairly free reign over the creative aspect of the project...just not the financial side!

Site cut & scrape

I drove by this morning after dropping the children off to school and found I couldn't get far. I was held up by several BIG trucks trying to get on site. Tears welled up & I got the shivers. Eden Brae are on site after 18 months of our planning!

From near the letterbox
 This came from the front of the property - a small stump in the ground that Brad & I couldn't yank out. Now I see why!
 View towards the front - didn't expect that retaining wall.
 There is a significant drop down to the grass - not obvious in the photo
 More obvious here as we can't see the grassed area.

Whilst I was there, I found an overdue water bill that had been sitting in the letterbox for a while. Upon ringing Sydney Water, it is because we haven't given them a final reading. I am not so sure where the meter is or even if it is still there. If there isn't a meter anymore, we will have to pay huge amounts for having an unmetered property. I am truly hoping that it is not something that I have to followup with the demolition company. Please, NO! I really wish this sort of thing was properly explained to the client - you sort of find out through default. Sydney Water told me that I needed to call them as soon as the tenants moved out and then again just before demolition.
