Day 2 - It's All Go & Meeting with SS

With site excavated that included scraping or cutting almost 1000 mm of excess soil from the high side of the block and using this material to fill almost 600 mm on the low side of block, it's been all go today on our site with tradies digging trenches for stormwater, sewerage and drainage.

I had a meeting with our SS, who seemed to be a good man with lots of experience, and prides on being a professional. He has a Metricon-provided car, which makes me believe he is employed almost on a permanent basis, and therefore likely to be committed. He had built a few Phoenixes before (which is reassuring) and mentioned that he likes the simplicity of the design (clean lines, no roof at odd places etc). He indicated that the build is likely to take around 32 weeks to complete, consistent with the period mentioned in the Contract. With the Christmas break coming in between, we are looking at handover possibly around February 2014, weather permitting of course.
