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!
