After several weeks in council, we finally got approval to start building and things have started moving ahead.

The first thing we had to do was prepare the building platform.  Unfortunately the lovely gum tree that first sold us on the block ended up being right in the middle of the platform, so it had to come down:

Once that was out-of-the-way, the bulldozer came in and excavated the building platform.  Here you can see the platform and the start of the formwork for the slab.  You can also see the kit frames and windows in the background.

The slab was laid and a few days later they started the framing.  The frames in the picture were put up in one day.  It only took about 5 days in total to get all of the frames up.
