We did indeed  :thumbs:

Despite the concrete conveyor wagon refusing to come and so I had to try and get a pump with about 2hrs notice (which I managed!) it all went reasonably well.

Well it's done anyway and that's the main thing.

It's flat and it's reasonably level so all that's left is all the rest.

Talking of rest, I need one  :lol:

I'm now trying to find a blockie to put up the walls for me as I have never laid a block in my life and I've got have columns and joints in the wall so I'll get a pro.

Yup I've got wood, well some. But it's not been used in ages so it's a bit green and manky.

I'd love to get it done by xmas but I'm flat out with work for the next couple of months so I think that'd be pushing it. Depends on how fast I can find a blockie I suppose.

At least there's no holes for the dog to fall in and all the mud I've been tracking in the house for the last few months is now gone, that was the main thing  :thumbs:

So then, after 4 months of nowt, the stars have finally aligned and the wondrous blockie has been found!

Mini telehandler ordered, 1400 blocks ordered (for a start) and sand and cement ordered.

Looking good, give us a shout if you need anything (making the tea, getting in the way, making the place look untidy, that sort of thing!  :lol: )
