North & South elevations after week three

Preparing for the ground floor

15 Tons of scalpings arrive and Sol starts cutting the dumper bags for the scalpings to come straight out onto the ground.
A Radon sump has to be constructed within the ground floor, the purpose is to ventilate any gases within the house and direct it out of the building into the open.
Sol is compacting the scalpings with a ' Compacter plate' or its other name called a 'Wacker'

Block works starts for plinth wall

Building merchants 'Civil Solutions' start the delivery of concrete blocks

Foundations `set in concrete`

Foundations set, you can just srtasee the overall shape of the house. The square foundation within the house is the location for the chimney.
