The bricks

As promised our bricks were delivered today. We were keen to see the colour as the sample we got when we went to Boral looked totally different to what we saw at the colour selection and the colour on the website. So we were pleased to see the colour looked better than we thought. The sand for the bricks should be delivered tomorrow and hopefully the bricklayers start on Wednesday.

The windows

Drove past the house today and to our surprise the windows were in! The plumbing had been done as well. Bricks should be delivered by the weekend.

The frame continues

Another drive by the 'house' to see what the builders got up to today and was very pleased to see the roof had gone up.

Doesn't look like there is much steel left on the ground. The frame for the desk in the children's activity room still needs to go in but other than that I couldn't see what else was left to do?

Not sure if they will be there tomorrow to finish up? If nothing is done tomorrow then Monday should see the windows in, yay!

Few more photos from today's progress.

Such a great street presence with the high pitched roof.

Our roof is so tall it hides the house behind. Love the high pitched roof!

Lots of steel. Looks so clean and straight!

The frame has started

Frame started yesterday. Looks like everything but the roof had been done except for a few bits and pieces. Went past today and part of the roof has been done and the beams for the alfresco area.

It is starting to take shape and it looks great.

The Windows

Drove past today thinking that the frame would have been started since it was not raining today, but nothing. Frame has been moved around the site a bit and sorted out by the looks of it. Windows and doors have been delivered too.

The colours of the windows and doors look pretty good. The colour is Bradnams Ultra Silver.

Also noticed that they have drawn on the slab where the frame will go.

Fingers crossed we the frame started tomorrow.

The frame

The frame was delivered today just like we were told it would be. Also had a call from Peter our site supervisor today. He said they should start putting the frame up next Monday.

The termite protection was laid on Monday as well. The site has also been cleaned up and scraped the land more to tidy it up.

Can't wait to see the frame up!!!
