We were on edge all morning because we were expecting a delivery of 13,200 at any moment. In the end, he turned up in the early afternoon and it was even more stressful than expected.
The huge lorry filled the road, and the driver then uncoupled the fork lift from the back of the artic. It had three wheels and was amazingly manoeuvrable, and he was extremely confident and quick when using it.
The trouble was that although he avoided all of the manhole covers, he drove extremely close to the foundations and even over the edge of our biggest steel.
It all seemed good in the end though, and we have ten pallets scattered across the plot, and 14 in a spare parking space just around the corner.
The bricks are a bit of a different colour to our sample and look more grey than expected, but we like them.
It's starting to look more like a building site now, all we need is a builder. Unfortunately, it seems that he is going to be a while because his current job is running late.
