Getting into the property proved to be a challenge with the sodden dirt driveway being cut up each time a concrete truck arrived, resulting in the last truck not being able to deliver the last load of concrete. That was back in May 2011. Fast forward to November 2011, around about our arrival date, the last load finally got poured, after the driveway was repaired yet again. The builder told us that by pouring the top layer with a big break in between would make a really hard surface in the long run, but to be honest we could have done without the grief. Building commenced in December with 95% of the work completed by early January. The alternate guttering Graeme ordered is proving to be the final challenge in completing the shed.
We have now applied to have the power put onto the shed and house site, and await the delivery of water tanks. Once the water tanks are in place, we will be able to take delivery of the 40ft container that still awaits us on the Hobart docks.
