Soil Test Report

Today I got my soil test report. It says it's Class H/P. Highly reactive soil/Problematic. This is due to a tree on site. The allows the soil to be moist, so they must assume the worst cast. This tree will be removed if we ever go through with the sale

Ormeau Display Home

Went for a visit to the Ormeau display home. Trevor is the sales consultant out there. I don't know if it's Metricon, but all their homes look nice. I'd be happy to build an Everest on our block. We gave him the measurements and he will give us a response in the next few days.

Looks like it will fit, but can't be sure until proper surveys are done. We might have the same problem as the last area.

Arrange Soil Test

Today I rang STA to arrange a soil test on our land, just to see if we had any bargaining power when we negotiate with the sales agent.
