The boundary pegs for the new block had to be marked today so the builder knows where the boundaries for the house are. These four little wooden posts cost $2500. Holy crap. It's officially called an identification survey and I know it's a cadastral survey with a fair amount of work involved, but I guess I wanted to see a bit more than this for my money. I felt like I could have got a trundle wheel out and marked it myself.
If you look closely enough you might be able to see the three pegs at the front of the block. This marks the boundaries of the two blocks. The new house is going on the right hand block (facing the block).
