What's been happening at our place

We had been to check out the house and had a few concerns.  The brickies had been back to re-do the mortar (they did a section the wrong colour!!!) and the new colour was still very, very wrong.  We spoke with our temporary SS today (our's is on holidays at the moment) and he is well and truly on top of everything.  The brickies will be back this week to not only re-do the mortar but also the bricks under all our windows as they aren't far enough out from the window as they should be (or something along those lines). 

Honestly, we can't fault EBH.  Any issue that we have had, they have already been and arranged for the problem to be recitifed before we have made the phone call. 

Once our SS is happy with everything, he will sign off on it and then Tyrell's come through and do their inspection.  Then they will start on the linings!!!

So glad things are going relatively smoothly.

Electrical rough in done!

We have had a bit more progress - the electrician has been and done the rough in.  We need to chat with our stand in SS (ours is on holidays) about a couple of things.  I must admit, it seems like the work has stalled.  It hasn't, but because it is now internal stuff, it is much less obvious from the outside!!!

We met one of our neighbours on the weekend too so that was exciting.

Hopefully more to update soon.

Brickwork, roof and eaves are done

So much has been happening.  The brickwork was completed on the 1st May.  The roof started on Friday 4th May and was finished the next day!!!  It makes such a difference to the house - it is really looking like a house now (which is a good sign!). 
The air conditioner has been roughed in and the cladding is done at the front.  The eaves have gone in as well.  It is amazing just how quickly these things go in. 

This week the electrician will be coming in to finish the rough in then we will be at lock up stage. 

We had a slight issue with the brick work - there were 2 mortars used.  We spoke with our site supervisor and he said it was the wrong colour delivered and that it will be fixed this week.  Phew. 

We will go and get more pictures over the weekend but here are a few from the past few weeks.
