After many, many months of delays and things and whatnots, we have finally, yes, finally started with Our Grand Design :)
Our contractor came back from the holidays with a bang, and presented us with a project plan and a start date, which was the 7th of January.
Work done this week:
They placed a temporary fence in the front garden, and started breaking down the current wall. In order to do this, they also had to move the pool pump from its current location to a spot a little deeper into the property.
This made me very happy, as the poolpump right next to the wall was a bit of a security risk, providing anyone with a bit of a foot up and over the wall.
We now have a lovely moat in front of our house (begging for some flesh eating fish or similar, but I must resist, as it will soon be the bed for our brand new wall)
Initial budget: R600 000,00
Spent to date: R0,00
Balance: R600 000,00
