A novice's journey from vacant block to dream home with Metricon Brisbane.
We wish to share this exciting project with friends and family along with others building a home. We hope by sharing the detail of our build process that this blog will inspire and support other first time, inexperienced, virgin home builders.

Pipes, Electricity Box and Form Work
Trench for storm water and electricity pipes
Pipes and Electricity Box
It's been all go on site with more diggers and tradies working from dawn to dusk on Tuesday digging trenches, laying pipes connecting water meters, sewerage, drainage and electricity box.
Yesterday it was the turn of the concreters who have put in all the form work and under slab insulation ready for the slab pour which could either be today or tomorrow. The weather forecast is for rain showers so I hope it stays dry enough for everything to go ahead.
Form Work pre-slab
I can't believe how much progress there has been this week its all very exciting as now we get to see the size of the house and how it sits on the block. It looks like we'll have a little less garden than anticipated at the rear of the house but as we have plenty either side I don't think this will be a problem.
