A week of progress on the building site...

I continue to take photos of the building work next door. This is what happened last week...

Monday:- a digger arrived and started removing the piles of soil...


There's Brad directing operations...



In the next photo, brad the Builder is clearing soil from the concrete footings...he worked 'on the shovel' for most of the morning...


 Here the digger has gone around to the back street to deal with the piles of soil towards the back of the site...

Later in the day, when the excess soil has been removed the digger starts another task...note the hot pink paint marks...
 After lunch, the next lot of 'tradies come in...

Tuesday:-

Today, the tradesmen continued to put in the pipes for the plumbing...however the working conditions include showers of rain...would not have made it very pleasant to work...


They are already back filling some of the trenches...

Getting a bit muddy there!

The digger operator waits beside the pile of small stones that are being used to backfill...


All the pipes and accessories piled nearby...
Later Tuesday afternoon, it poured and poured :-(

Wednesday:

The rain has gone...the plumbers are back...and there is a man with a clipboard checking the site...


The truck delivers some more stones....



Thursday:

Again the weather was particularly kind to the tradesmen...






 And Friday there was no work at all on the site...

Thanks for the update Maria. Looks like folk will be moving in in no time at the rate they are building. Hope it isn't too disruptive for you (now that is a stupid comment - of course it's disrupting).
Brad the builder eh? Not Bob!
