Lids almost on!

Hello Sportsfans!

Well it was a stinker out at the block today and true to form our Tradies battled on. After just three days the roof is nearly complete.

We expect that the roofers will be finished mid week and have our sparky due in on Thursday morning for rough in.

Brickwork Complete

Today saw our window sills, door sills and adjustment to the front wall completed.

As you may be able to see the small brick wall that runs horizontally between the pillar and the wall has now been set back to allow the gutter to be correctly installed

With our roofing, ridge capping and other associated hardware bit and pieces delivered I guess its safe to suggest the completion of the roof is next. Hopefully we will have some more progress by Friday, stay tuned!

Bricks, Bricks and No More Bricks........ What The!

A snappy visit to the block today found all out bricking complete, well sort of...... We found that our roofing had been delivered and that the fascia and gutter was being installed as we arrived. After a chat with the tradies on site we were told that the brickies had actually run out of bricks! All their gear was gone and the site had had a once over. Apparently a new supply of bricks will be delivered early next week so the window sills and door sills can be completed.


Now our only other problem is that it appears a section of brickwork above the front porch had been bricked flush with the outer brick pillar which interferes with the guttering so it need to be removed and re done which we are told should be no problems and will be rectified next Wednesday. Dependent upon the weather, the roofing should be well underway by next week although this is all third hand information from the trades on site each time we visit.

We are still chasing up lights and other fittings in the background but this is also no easy task. There are just so many things we need to sort out but until things start to take shape its difficult to visualise the bigger picture. Anywho, fingers crossed next week we will be complete!

Bricks, Bricks and more Bricks........

Due to some incessant whingeing from one of my loyal blog followers who shall remain nameless ***Cough*** GERG ***Cough*** I though I should update the blog!

Our Brickies have been hard at work and I would think they would have about 1-2 days left at the most to complete the brickwork. The majority of the walls are all complete with the only other work to complete being the window sills.

Hopefully this crap house weather will bugger off for a few weeks at least and let us get the brickwork finished. I'm not sure as to what's next but I would expect it to be the roofing then at least we should be weather tight.
