home delivery

finally....some action!

This morning my first (of four) 40' High Cube containers arrived.

I am not permitted more than one until my Development Application has been approved by council, so until that time this one will act as tool storage facility and workshop.

It was exciting to see it coming down the dirt road and I was a little trepidatious as I was supposed to take delivery of it last week. Typically, after a completely rain free month, the day before it was suppose to arrive it poured down. The ground was too sodded for the 21 ton (plus 4 tons of empty container) so it was put off for a week.

But to make sure there would be no problems of becoming bogged, I cut through the front fence and opened an alternate route to the house site thus bypassing the worst of the wet areas. If my dam had been built none of this would have been an issue.

The truck had no problems at all. And it took the driver about 5 or 6 minutes to have the container off the truck and onto the small brick piers I had put on the ground.
