Getting it level

Back to the site today to see the progress and get an update from Lionel the site manager. Yet again he took the time to explain the progress to date and what was actually being done.

This is the frame work that sits on the piles, the wooden plate with the bolts sticking up is rather critical as if these are set in the wrong place, when the steel frame turns up next week, there will be a problem. (sorry not quite builders terms but the way I understood it!)

Its only taken a few days to put the frame in, Lionel explained years ago this took a number of weeks to put even the shuttering together as it was wood in those days not plastic.

Then the concrete turned up, not just a case of pour it in either, again small amount in and then levelled to ensure no bubbles.
