Even more progress

The Bricks were delivered on Friday to the block and bricking started this morning - my spies tell me they're almost halfway up the front facade. It seems they have a rather large team working on the house so they expect to be finished by the end of the week. I really wish I could get out to the block during daylight hours so I could actually see the progress as it's happening.

Looks like electricals will start later this week with rectification of the frame happening on wednesday and plaster to start on wednesday. I'm still in awe of how fast this house is going up. I'd heard horror stories and people keep telling me to be prepared for it to just stop... but it's been such a smooth build so far. I'm so glad I changed builders.

  1. Whoo hoo!! I've been waiting to see some pics :)

    It's the internal work that takes forever :(

  2. I'm going to the block today to check out the brick work... apparently they've done a huge amount during the week - even with the rain

  3. Oh you mean they don't melt in the rain???
    I always imagine them refusing to work if it's raining. hehe

  4. Apparently we've got waterproof tradies on my block...
