WEEK 7: BRICKS BRICKS AND MORE BRICKS........


On Easter Monday we had the brickies on site. Was so exciting seeing the Tradies work through the public holidays. They had bricked 3/4 of our garage wall and back door.

By Friday we had bricks round the front bedroom window and down the side of the house. Also we have all our plaster board up. Its so nice to feel the individual spaces now in the rooms.

WEEK 5: FRAMING AND ROOF COMPLETE


This has been the most exciting week so far!!!
 
Even with this horrible weather so much has been done. We went out Tuesday arvo and all our frames were up as well as our windows. The builders were just finishing the garage roof framing when we arrived. We only managed a photo from the back as so many builders were on site at the time.
 
 
Love our big window and sliding door at the back!
 
My husband has had this week off so we popped back out Wednesday. As it was so wet we thought no one would be on site, and we might get to have a sneaky walk through. But what a surprise, the tradies were working in the rain!
 
We now have our gutters/fascia, and our house has been wrapped ready for the brickies.
 


 
Amazing the progress in 3 days work!
*********************************

MORE SURPRISES!!!!

We went out to site on Friday and OMG!!!!!
Our roof was nearly finished!
I can not believe how in 5 days it can go from a concrete slab to looking like a house.
Lets hope the weather improves though Melbourne has been drenched this week and we need some sunshine for our brickies next week.
Cant wait till the weekend for a sneaky walk through!

WEEK 4: CONCRETE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD!

 
  Our SS rung Tuesday to let us know our slab pour was happening Wednesday. So we popped down Tuesday evening to see the slab boxing complete before the pour the next day.
 
 



 
We noticed our bricks had been delivered as well.
 

 
Loving the colour - Austral bricks Access chestnut.

WE HAVE A SLAB!!!!

We couldn't wait to visit our site again on Friday to see our slab. Great to see how the house will sit on our section.










Our frames have been delivered to site with framing commencing next week YAY!

We also noticed our back neighbours are starting to build. It will be awesome to have all our neighbours builds finished when we move in.
