We have a Hydronic Manifold!

All the heating is in, the slab is poured and they have started on the frame - very big week.

 The styrofoam base, pre-heating installation -

 And there she is, our very own hydronic manifold in (we hope) one of the laundry cupboards

 In goes the hydronic heating pipes - and no, Peter who was installing the mesh would not put a shirt or sunscreen on...

There seems to be an awful lot of looking at the plans with worried looks -

 And then the nice big concrete crane arrived

The street gets a bit crowded (and the road is getting quite mangled) -


Henry had half an hour away from school to watch a bit of the action -

Garage floor first -

and then the rest - took most of the day

more pictures of finished slab and the beginning of the frame soon - apparently the frame will take some time as it's 'a bit complicated'.

  1. Weird how the house looks ginormous, then small, then just right as the build progresses...well, that was my experience many moons ago. Good to get the slab done. Complicated, huh???!!!!!! I thought you were having a square foam box:):):):):)
