Well this had it's moments! Dealing with two men (dear daddy and Crosie) who are oddly both right (hey, i'm the one writing this so i get authors rights!). After several days and phone calls finally got the power one - oh Meridian you are so easy to deal with ... not!
However, we now have power and phone cables laid and are able to liven to the electric fence for the sheeps and have some security lighting on around the section - to stop those nasty little grebblies that feel that they can come onto your property and have a nosey or take stuff!
So the trench has now all been filled in, Crosie has now started the painstaking process of digging the foundations and making sure everything is level so we can pour the concrete around Jan 13th.
The plan is to rent Crosie's place in Westridge and then get a temporary building onsite while the man-space is built so we can live onsite. A litle bit of an adventure for us .... hmmm no real kitchen, no shower - thanks to friends in advance as we will be coming to see you to de-smell during February! Also to my work colleagues!
As i write this, Crosie's place has been up on Trade Me for about 24 hours and we have had a lot of calls and several people come through to view the place. Which meant i had to do a lot of cleaning up, while the man was at the section doing man-stuff. In other words keeping out of my way!
So back to the building ...
We are of course a couple that set trends up here on the Coast, and it wasn't long before others saw the beauty of the spot and we had neighbours on both sides of us. However, putting that in perspective one is about 200m away and the other cannot be seen due to the large hill seperating us.
