I drove past the house today and was absolutely shocked by how high it was! At first I thought that it was only that high to accomodate installing the new stumps into the ground, but after talking to Gary it seems that it will only be coming down a couple of centimetres to sit on the posts. He’s assured me that it won’t look as high after he has poured the slab and then we have enclosed it, but right now it looks pretty high…

I got in the house today to have a look and it was swaying with the wind, which was a bit disconcerting. It actually made me feel a bit sea sick while I was up there, even though it was only swaying a few centimetres. I was told that should settle down after it’s been lowered onto the stumps and the cross bracing is put in.
