First truckload of cement

First truckload of cement

Monday afternoon, this was the first of 4 truckloads of cement – you don’t realise how big these trucks are until one parks right in front of you.  I am standing in the doorway of the house, and you can see the edge of the verandah roof at the top right corner of the picture.

Result will be solid walls, with high insulation rating.  Outside surface will be a paint render, while the inside will have plaster as usual.

Exciting times ahead. 🙂
