Finally! And I've done the "the slab looks tiny" thought process more than once since yesterday. I keep telling myself a house of 34 squares is not tiny, especially since we are upgrading from 10-11 squares.
Will have to get some more photos in the next few days - I've got 2 friends of Jack's coming over for a play after school this afternoon, then tomorrow busy trying to get Hannah and Tommy's birthday present - without them knowing what I'm doing (They turn 4 next week). Then Friday work. Boring. Don't they know I need to take photos of concrete!!!!
Yesterday when I took these photos my girlfriend came with me. Whilst taking them, I said to her, how many photos of concrete is enough before it's a bit silly. She thought 10. I refrained from telling her I'd already taken more than that!!! (And she built 5 years ago, so should know better!)
Completed - well almost ;)
And this was my favourite part of getting the slab. The tradies were so good about us being on site - they said to me - it's your house. When I explained I had heard horror stories of not being allowed to watch the major progress points - he said, well we have nothing to hide, go ahead and take photos. I took them throughout the day, and by late afternoon, they were still there. The kids wanted to see what all the fuss was, and I wanted to sneak in their initials in the slab. They were all still there (well 5 of the 8 guys who were working on the slab) finally sitting down having a beer/smoko break, which they said was the first of the day. (I hope it was with the beer anyway!). I asked if the kids would be able to put their initials in the garage floor - they couldn't as they hadn't gone over it with the machine - but then proceeded to find me another spot to do it, and helped me get them around the side! Their words - we didn't see anything. Love 'em!
