Block Preparation and Lower Floor Slab

On 12 November 2013 we commenced site works, with the compaction test done we had the levels finalized ready for concrete. We are one street back from the beach so soil is quite sandy. The house is a two story 5 bedroom with majority of the bedrooms upstairs. The block had a wide frontage so we have a 3 car garage across the front to the right of the house.
