Day 18: Slab Poured & Plumbing Issues

Well, after such a great start with the slab formwork, we have had some very disappointing news. Our wonderful slab has had every single pipe in the bottom floor placed in the wrong location, looking to be about a metre off the whole way through.

Our site manager explained that this is quite common, as plumbers work off only string lines, so it can be quite difficult to get it spot on. We were told that they would build the entire frame, then cut the slab, relocate the pipes, re-engineer the slab, then seal it back up again. This makes me incredibly nervous as I obviously don’t want to be left with something patched together.

Let’s hope it gets resolved – will keep you posted.
