Today is officially day 53 of the build and around 1/3 or the brickwork is complete.
I must say (although I don't know too much about bricking) that the brickie does a very neat job compared to some I have seen although he has left a lot of broken bricks around the yard. I'm not complaining as he's the one that has to work in the mess.
One half of the back of the house, and all the whole of the south facing side has been done up to about 5 feet. There is very little brickwork to be done at the front, just below the windows and the pillars of the front porch along with the front of the Garage.
The progress chart on myMetricon says that they expect lock-up on 28 August which is next Saturday. This is too good to be true, at this rate I could really be in before Christmas. I just don't want to get too excited as I don't want to jinx myself.
Rob my SS works on two week blocks and says he does not look ahead any further than that. This is not good for a Sagittarius who likes to be organised and organise everyone else - heck I'm organising next Christmas before this Christmas arrives. I've just got to take a step back and have patience.
I have 9 weeks before I have to be out of the house I am living in at the moment. I am surrounded by packing boxes and garbage bags sorting through what I'm taking with me and what I will throw away (fun times).
Anyway below are some photos for you to look over.
There are now quite a few houses springing up in my street and looking around I think there is one couple who have moved into the Estate and another who are just about ready too.
This photo is just for Janine, Amanda, Leanne and Barbi. This is the scrap booking room - lot of late nights to be had in here girls and plenty of room for guest scrappers lol, oh and it is a kid and husband free zone...how good is that?!?!
