Bricks are done

Well it has been a while between posts and a lot of work has been done. 

Our bricks were started on 30/05. There were delays getting the scaffold up due to some rain but it finally went up and the bricks were finished on 16/06. 

The roof trusses were completed on 19/06 and the gutters and facia went on Wednesday. 

Our bricks were going to be cleaned last Friday. That has still not been done. 

The roof tiles were delivered yesterday and they started putting on the sarking this morning. By this afternoon the main roof tiles were all done. The lower levels of the roof will not be able to be done until the scaffold comes down. 

Daniel is hoping that he can get the electrical rough in done while he is on holidays from his teaching position. Looks like he will be able to get in and get that done now. I hope he realises how fussy I am as a client. 

Here are some photos of the brick progress. 

And with the gutters up...

And our roof being prepared and tiled...


We have been so impressed by the speed of our build. Everyday there is something happening. Even Monday, there were people on site working in the rain. 

Last Friday, 30/05/14, they started our bricks. My husband had seen that they were delivered the day before and I pulled in to check them out only to find about 8 brickies there. 

Since then, our brickwork gas gotten higher everyday. 

I suspect after today's efforts, they will need scaffold before they can go any higher. 

We were a bit disappointed when we realised that our bricks were exactly the same as next door. However, they have different mortar (they have white, we have off white) which makes them look different. I think our bricks look great. 

Can you believe after agonising over our bricks and changing our minds so many times, we got the same bricks.
