And then there was a slab

First we have trenches...

Then there was a slab! This house is looking big. Everything appears to be in the right place so far. That's good.

Next we go vertical. Frame is on it's way.

Going back to the beginning

So here we are, we're building a house. But that's pretty obvious. We are building our house, a house designed by us for us. The build is a little way along but for now we will go back to the start.

The block. We needed a block and here it is.

Okay so that's a house not a block, as such...

Now it's a block!

While we are at it, since we have a block then we need a plan. Not just any plan though this is our plan. Many hours, scrapped ideas, worked, re-worked, many more hours but we finally made it work.
