Dig, Dig, Dig!

The house site beginnings.

The house site finished with all the rooms laid out. I can walk around my house!

These piles of dirt will be our mudbricks. Rich chocolate brown and rust red.

Looking down from the house site to the shed and tank site.

Pat the digging man was amazing to watch. Precise, quick, skilled and very unassuming.

Colin the electrician laid the lines in the trenches from the power box to the house and to the shed.

Tomorrow Andrew the ‘slab man’ begins the process of preparing for the concrete slab.

Its a bit surreal after years of dreaming, thinking, planning and preparing. The whole paddock looks different but not as scarred as I imagined. I can now see the spaces both in the house and around the house and its all starting to take shape.
