In November 2004 we started the journey to bring a baby home from China ... five years later, in October 2009, we met Isobel Pingqin.
Our little livewire known as Izzy.

A lot has happened in the last week, but now the rain is back.
The frame and windows went up on Thursday, Friday and Monday. The frame guys even worked in the rain on Friday.
Today we had gutters and facia put up.
Bricks arrived today and brickies set up to start laying bricks, but the rain has now started so I'm guessing no bricks until the rain stops.
Gutters out the back
Hallway !
Bricks arrive.

We're finally getting a slab!

We're finally getting the slab. After another week of rain, then a week for the site to dry out, the builders returned last week and finished the piers and put the plumbing pipes in.
The plan was for the slab to pour last Friday, however we got another 4 days of rain.
Builders returned yesterday and put all the styrofoam blocks down, and today the steel reinforcing.
Tomorrow... 30 cement trucks to pour the slab!
Styrofoam blocks and steel reinforcing going in.
Plumbing pipes in!
More piers
