Today, in lovely sunshine, we carried on with the job of moving and levelling out the excess piles of soil and sand heaped around the outside of the house.

We finished the remaining section along the back, past Bedroom 1 and the Great Room, continuing around the corner towards the conservatory. Surprisingly, the heaps of sandy soil that came out of doing the foundation strips, is still disappearing to fill up the gap right behind the Perimeter Wall, up to the ground level, well actually, we decided to level to the height of 2 blocks up off the foundation which is 50mm (2inches) below the real ground level. This means that we will have a bit of room to lay down the proper finishing surface like brick weave for the patio and footpaths etc.
