Mark said that the excavator had started and that the earthworks will take a few days.
Tomorrow the surveyors will be back to replace a peg that was accidently removed during next door's site clean-up. They also need to do some extra makings for the 3 x Garages as this part of the house is 800mm lower than the main house slab.
Mark also said that we should have the slab by Christmas (that doesn't leave much time) and our frames have been ordered and should arrive either 7 or12 January 2009.
Here are some site earthworks pictures taken this afternoon...
