We have a hole !

Finally, they started digging just after lunch today. They have dug about 1/4 of the foundations so far with the plan to pour at the end of the week. We took the opportunity to go and check out the 1.6m foundations. I got in the hole just to confirm their depth and had quite a bit of trouble getting out. Frank had to give me a reverse boost and just as he had me out and standing up, my shoe fell off and you guessed it, into the 1.6metre hole. I had to get back in and fish it out again! It is amazing how excited you can get about a couple of deep holes!

Now THAT'S a hole!!
Good work on taking the plunge to build your own home. If I had a hat I'd take it off to you .... we just finished building with a general builder and although we had relatively few problems, the stress at times was amazingly high!!

Looking forward to seeing your progress.
