Jason went by the house and spoke to the boss bricklayer, Pete, who told him they are super close to being finished but have run out of bricks as they rejected so many chipped or damaged ones - and they are waiting for more to arrive :)
Our bricks are 'colour on' rather than 'colour through' which means any chips in the face of the brick are very obvious as the colour is just on the surface not the whole way through the brick.
Apparently they had a delivery recently of 3 pallets but due to so many being damaged they ran out quickly.
I called our SS for an update and he told me he expects the bricks to arrive Tuesday or Wednesday, and then hopefully the brickies will be back Thursday to finish up. He said once they have finished the scaffolding needs to be raised for the gutter and fascia to be installed, then the tiles go on after that.
Hopefully then this time in two weeks all that will be finished. So next week will more than likely see mostly dormant days unfortunately...
