Ka-ching…that’s the sound of an invoice arriving in my inbox on a Friday afternoon! Our SS expected the bricks to be finished this week and sure enough the brick crew delivered. In total it’s taken 5 weeks for our bricks to be completed including the scaffold being put up. It was a flying visit this… Read More Week 11: Bricks Completed
Our new SS has kept everything moving along without a pause which is great. Our scaffolding went up this week ready for our second storey bricks to be started next week. We also got our 2nd brick delivery. Now we just need our brick crew back, they’re due back on site mid next week at… Read More Week 10: Scaffolding
Got an email this morning to say we had been assigned a new Site Supervisor.

Even the downlights aren’t great and I wish we had opted to… Read More Lights Purchased!
Our bricks were delivered last week, but the brick crew our SS had booked in we’re still finishing another job so they didn’t get onsite until this week. As expected, progress has slowed down now. About 2/3 of the ground floor walls are bricked along the wall closest to our neighbour, back of the house… Read More Week 7: Bricks
