Is the bricking finished?

Front of house

Wondering when we might move on to the next phase of the build process, we find ourselves asking the question,”Is the bricking finished?” Sadly, not yet. But we ARE close!

By our estimates, we’re about two weeks behind schedule due to the terrible weather we had in May. No worries though, that’s still sufficient enough time to get in and situated before family and friends are set to arrive for Christmas later this year. By the time we had the chance to visit the house today, we were already aware that the brickwork wouldn’t be finished. Our site supervisor from Metricon called earlier in the week to update us on what is scheduled for the week upcoming, and on what was completed this week prior. Frankly, we’re pretty excited.

In a way, bricking HAS been completed – all of which is possible without scaffolding. Come Monday morning, scaffolding will be erected, and the remaining bricking should be completed by weeks end. Alongside the final touches, guttering and fascia is set to be installed in preperation for…the roof!

Our colorbond roof is likely to start being installed Monday week, assuming the weather cooperates this week. Fingers crossed everyone! I think both Megan and I will be very relieved once the roof is on, and these soaking Aussie storms that have come through won’t hinder progress in the same way they had previously.

Not much here today in terms of photos, but here’s a few to keep you tied over until next weekend. Hopefully next weekend will bring with it significant changes. Cheers!
