* We’re sad to report we continued to lose photos:( Memory Disc has now been consigned to the bin.
PC and Carpenter had spent the weekend cutting and labeling the rods meticulously. There was a bit of a rush at one stage as the cement started hardening and the rods were not yet in. Disaster was adverted and rods are in.
Two hours later the job was completed, I’m pleased I talked PC out of his original plan of mixing cement himself.
Friday the sand and aggregate were delivered, all systems in place to start laying the piers on the weekend.
Saturday PC was up at 5am to work in the cool of the morning laying pier blocks. He worked steadily until 11am when it became so hot he nearly fainted. He started again at 4pm, the heat was incredible. A violent storm that night broke the humidity.
We are really pleased with the pace, it is all happening much faster than I was expecting.
