Guy directly across from the entrance is the main complainer......think he must have been out.....,I was quick to sweep the roadway and replace all the torn turf in the footpath,looks OK now........Slabs a bit thin on one side ,all the excavation was done with a laser level,dunno how it could be out....All solid now,so getting the metalwork up is next.

Steel came today.......they said the truck would be 14 m long....I thought ,no ,shorter....Wrong.....Anyway ,I says to the driver ,should be able to just drive in......nooo he says.......back an forth a dozen times,over every footpath and drive on the opposite side of the street ....fortunately this is the last delivery ,so cant be stopped now..................Anyhoo ,on the way out ,he sees he could have driven straight in ,drives straight out with a foot to spare on the far side of the road......I just dunno,any more...............Now I gotta stand guard over $20k worth of roofing and steel bits and pieces for weeks while Titan get around to putting it up.
