Our house’s foundation is completed!

The piece of news that made my week when I received a message from Kai (who saw this status posted by one of our neighbours on our condo’s Facebook page).

 

Foundation for our stack completed!

Foundation for our stack completed!

Apparently, one of our neighbours from our stack has received the developer’s request for the first 10% payment to be made soon. For private developments, DBSS and Executive Condominiums, payment is made in progressive stages (e.g. 10% when foundation is done, 10% when flooring is done… etc, all the way till TOP and ultimately, CSC and Legal Date of Completion).

Our stack happens to be at the corner where construction and piling started first compared to the rest of the development, so I’m guessing we’ll be seeing our tower coming up first compared to the rest! Not that it means we can move in first but it’s just the excitement that counts!

Still waiting patiently (not so much anymore…) for my lawyer’s and banker’s letters, and we’re expecting it to arrive any day soon! Meanwhile, more pictures on the developments on the ground.

The huge and supposedly 'very-advanced' piling machines that the developer brought in. It's supposedly quieter and much faster compared to the traditional methods of piling foundations.

Cranes which have been there since eons ago, but still, progress is crawling slower than a snail's pace.

First signs of progress - two tower cranes erected just beside our tower's site!
