Great weather this week ensured we got plenty done! We are very happy with the pace and quality of the construction. We also got a chance to meet the framing guys who were working on Saturday, and interestingly are building the frames by hand. We got our first invoice this week and got our head around the progress payment process, along with putting in the last of our own contribution to the build cost!
Reo and waffle pods laid into excavation.
