My New House - Week 1

My house is progressing.... From the blog I wrote on the 5th November, the day it started. I went back the next day on Friday, and was disappointed nothing more had happened. Naturally over the weekend they didn't work either, but was pleased to find on Monday afternoon (9th November) more work had been done in the form of deliveries to the site....



Then on Tuesday morning, I went back to the site for the last time before heading back to Auckland. I was pleased to see some action...



Notice the sunny sky was back too...



While I was down in Blenheim this time, I once again visited the A&P show like I did the year before. Last year I was impressed with a photographic competition displayed in the show by Junior, Intermediate and Senior school children, so I went in to look again this year. While there, I suddeny noticed a group of people with cameras taking lots of photos. So I had to ask - were they the Marlborough Camera Club? They were, and so I introduced myself and paid my subs immediately for next year, and so I can get email information for the competitions in the meantime.

They asked for my address and details, and I gave my Renwick address.

Today I got the following email and attachment in my inbox.

Hi Robyn, looks as though they were pouring the footings today.


Regards,
Fred

Attached was the following photo...



I was thrilled to receive it and very thankful - Thanks Fred :) Great photo too, makes the mountain ranges look really close, and just look at the sheep LOL

Wonderful, I can feel your excitement! Do take photographs from the same spot so you can put together a "time lapse" series of photographs as your house progresses along.

Hi Chris,

I haven't moved down there, so a time lapse series isn't able to be done by myself. G J (the house buliders) are going to try and do it for me each week (one photo per week), but not sure if that will be enough.

Cheers
Robyn

Wow, that view is something really special. You are lucky.

So nice of them to send you a photo of progress too. How thoughtful.
