Looking good pal, get a blinding layer of sand over the top and a dpm, as above I would also put provision for services in, even if it's just a duct for now, takes minutes, costs pence but saves fortunes and hassle down the line.

Slow progress, honest thoughts, would this be ok??? its just been pushed in at corners, not been cut or taped, broken slabs to raise the mesh

for the electrics just run some piping under the mesh with some string running through the pipe so if you do want electric in there just tie the cables to the string and pull them through :thumbs

And that looks spot on

Or a ferret with the string attached to it, if you forget to thread a cord first that is ;):laugh:

1 and a half once you have a full square on one sheet sitting over a full square on the next pull a line across the top as well to make sure no mesh will be poking up above floor it can easily happen especially where 4 sheets meet.

Get a 90 degree 4inch sewer bend with a short piece of pipe in each end and stick it one corner you will have enough room in it to bring in water feed,electric or any other service pipe afterwards under mesh will do fine no need to dig up hardcore it will probably be a steel wire armoured electric cable anyway so no need to go too deep.
