This afternoon, we sliced up 6 sheets of the 18mm OSB boards to make a collection of 2 different heights of shuttering. We made 12 pieces of 200mm tall and 16 pieces of 300mm tall.
Then we drew out the string between the front and back batter boards at the number 1 position (the left side of the Great Room) and string across the number 3 line running along the front of the house (Great Room and Kitchen), the L3 to R3 batter board position. Two more metal pins were bashed into the soil at the intersection point.
Lastly, we sweated ourselves in the boiling heat (it got to 31°C today!!!) in digging a narrow trench to make room for the shuttering and we have placed a 200mm high piece at the back and 2 further 300mm high boards touching all together, coming towards the front of the house.
We carry on with that foundation strip tomorrow and then do number 2 (the Great Room come Kitchen / Bedroom 1 divide).
