So as the post title eludes to - nothing is happening on site.
Bricks arrived Monday (as the bricklayer suggested to Jason last week, however our SS seemed to think they wouldn't arrive until Tuesday or Wednesday and there will be no brickies on site until Friday and they will work Friday & Saturday to get the bricks done and dusted. If the weather holds out.
I know the building game is all about waiting sometimes but after a 9 month lead up to this build a whole week with the site sitting dormant is just frustrating. Escpecially when the weather has been so great.
According to our SS brickies will finish on Saturday, gutter and fascia will happen Monday (I think) and the roof tiles should be done by the end of next week (thats what was passed on to me anyway.).
I wont get too excited but I hope thats the case - cant wait to see a roof on this house.
After that I presume the cladding goes on and the electricians come to do a rough in before the gyprockers arrive on site.
I think once we have real walls it is going to be very exciting!!
In the meantime to occupy me I am on a neverending quest of sourcing furniture (still looking at this stage), and am thinking about window coverings (lucky me has a friend in the business!), and this week I am very excited by the new soft close door dampers Tim & Tina have for sale over at their new site which you can find here . I chose to have Blum soft closing mechanisms on every door and drawer in the kitchen (for a significant cost but they are fantastic quality), however I am going to buy the ones Tim & Tina have sourced for our laundry, bathrooms and powder room, looking forward to how easy they are to install!
I am also thinking about flooring (need to start looking into that more soon), decking, all the extra electrical we need to do on handover and have started lists of all the post-handover jobs we need to do.. I'm pretty sure the hard work really begins after handover!
We have a few steps leading up to our portico so this is what I would like to do at the front of our place eventually..
