Had our regular meeting this morning with our SS, and had to wait a bit as more sand has just been delivered for the brickies to use. Wow, it's progressing quite well, I would say. I was only expecting to see the roof tiles and didn't expect to see bricks being laid already. Our SS didn't allow us to go in and have a sticky-beak. Best that we stay out for now, we're told, as he's got 8 bricklayers (yes, 8; not 2, not 4, but 8 brickies) currently working on the site. Apparently, he would need to get them to stop working if non-tradespeople have to have a look-see. Work Safe. Better just let them keep on working. Maybe next time, we'll time our site visits/status meeting during their break period. At the moment, I'm happy just to take photos from the outside. Besides, not much more to see inside from the last time we visited, so my SS told me. The roof structure in the Dining and Outdoor rooms (rear of the house) are still not up. They'll have that done once the scaffolding are down. Nevertheless, we're still very happy to see the roof tiles are up, and brickworks are well underway. Yay!!!
And here's how our house is shaping up so far. This is Day 64 (from Site Start) ...
|The Selkirk Macedon. Here's what we're hoping it will look like. Might need to go back tomorrow and pinch a brick. Have to verify if it's the Macedon.|
|Still missing the main bedroom's window and french doors upstairs. Not sure when's the balcony, front portico and facade will be put up. Could be after the lock-up stage.|
|CLOSER VIEW OF THE ROOF FROM THE SIDE.|
That's a 600mm Eave. Roof tiles are Boral Macquarie - Gunmetal colour. Guttering's colour is Monument; and the Fascia is Dune. Window frames are of Dune colour, as well. What do you think?
