With training on over the last couple of days this week, I didn't get much of a chance to get out at the block. We are still yet to hear back from our site supervisor regarding the issues raised on our private stage inspection, but to be fair all issues were minor (but still require rectification).
There have been a stack of new items delivered and installed. Also the brickies have made a quick start and have completed nearly 1/4 of the house already. I received a call from our site supervisor on Thursday morning letting us know that the bricking was starting and wanting to confirm that we wanted flush faced mortar and not recessed. Maya organised to the visit the brickies on the block and view each mortar profile. We are definately sticking with flush faced.
The bricks already create a strong contrast feature and do match ok with the roofing and gutters/fascia. In fact, I think that it is good that we went with "dune" coloured render to the portico at the front and outdoor room at the back. Anyway, just some photo's to show the progress........
