My friend, who was wishing for a concrete pool lining for her birthday this week, tells me that concrete is the new diamonds. Cut, clarity, colour and carat (weight) are all looking good.

 Happy Birthday to me!

Our building inspector, visited our block prior to the slab pour and gave everything the thumbs up.  He very kindly sent me some extra photos.

Retaining walls

Our fancy (read expensive!) retaining walls.  Later they’ll be rendered.

There will be celebrations here tonight.  We will be trialling the first contender for House By The Water’s signature drink, a Blueberry Mojito.

    Hi Johanne

    We are now in sync – my slab is being poured tomorrow. I’ll send you pics soon. Retaining wall looks similar too! 🙂

    Cheers Alan

    What a wonderful birthday gift Johanne! All the very best for your day and your build..we are nearing lock up stage with WBN..exciting times! You will be at the same stage before you know it!
    Enjoy that mojito!🎂🎆

    • Thanks Brooke and welcome to my blog! Are you building a custom or off-the-plan home with WBN? The build timing is all a bit of a mystery to me, and I suspect often the builders too! Luckily we are not in a position of having to time completion with house sales or rental agreements.

    Congratulations and happy birthday!
    Enjoy the cocktails – they are well-deserved for getting yourselves this far! 🙂
