23 January 2007 ... a momentous day in the life of John and I when Porter Davis started work on our house. It feels like this day has taken forever to come, but now that it's finally here, it's a bit scary to think that in just a few months we need to start thinking about packing up the current place and moving (if all goes to plan).
We still haven't heard from the Supervisor (apparently his name is Darren) but we're taking the fact that they started as a very good sign.
A bad sign from last night was when we ran into Sarah and a new friend she has made in her street. They were riding around the estate and happened to be at our block when we arrived. Sarah introduced us (in a very adult way!) to Kristie who proceeded to tell us that they built with Porter Davis and during the building of their home they had 2 fires, a flood and a cracked wall!! We were quick to say goodbye to Kristie as we didn't want to hear any more horror stories in case the bad luck bug jumped across to us.
The photos above show the block, scraped of all grass and debris ... the very important porta-loo for the builders .... and Sarah doing a 'da daaahhhh' showcasing the block.
