Construction on the property should begin this week. On the weeked a new tap was installed on the property and a new pipe laid from the front of the property to somewhere on the side so that the builders can use the water connection from there.

The rubble left from the power pit installation has been removed. However there is a pot hole on the opposite side of the road where the electric company would have dug up to pull the underground cable. It is sealed with black tar but is not level with the road. I have called the electric company and asked them to fix it up.

We have heard back from Porter Davis this morning. The slab needs to be upgraded from class H to class HD. The cost to upgrade will be $2385. Good news however is that the site start has been brought forward. The file will be given to construction on 16/10/09 after which they will place the order and organise trades. Building should commence around 28/10/09

The rubble from the power pit has still not been removed and one of the neighbours complained about it. I have called the local power company Jemena to organise to fix up the place.
Good news finally on the soil test front - The Engineering company has provided a soil survey report back to Porter Davis. This will now be given to the drafting team at PD to see if they need to upgrade the slab or if it is all OK. The dates for the construction to begin as it stands at the moment is 30 Oct. So if all goes well then we might even have a late Oct start.
