Foundation and basement walls

The dig out was completed during the week ending September 4th. By the 12th the “forms” were going in that marked out the shape of the building and the internal support walls.

It is surprising how quickly they went up, being metal though it was simply assembly, and the great thing is they were completely re-usable after being washed. The forms were removed leaving the concrete basement floor an the walls by September 15th.

A Pictorial of the house that #dandf built

For most people, investing in their home is the biggest investment and most important decision they’ll ever make. In my time, I’ve bought five houses before, but never imagined being able to build one. In US terms we are building a production home.

We chose the lot, in fact, we switched lot’s at the time of signing. We chose a floor plan and construction style, and again changed plans between two ultra-modern, single story, contemporary designs.

We were able to customize the plan in a number of ways; we chose the entire finish of the home; and we were even successful in getting the “designer” chosen external color palette changed. Feel free to watch as our home appears over the next 5-6 months and some of the changes we make to it after completion.

We get asked a lot, why #dandf?
