So, we're finally off to a start with the build in the new year! The brickies have been working since mid last week, but due to the extreme weather we're experiencing in Adelaide currently the trades are limited to working until about lunchtime. It's been over 40 degrees every day for the last four days, and there is no relief in sight with temps staying very high for at least another week :( Despite that though, our brickies have been out on the job from about 5.30 am. The kids started at their new school down there this week, so I've been to the block to see them twice. They have done about 1 and a half walls so far, and I have to say their work looks very, very nice. It's very tidy nice looking brickwork, so we're highly impressed. I'm also impressed with how they've managed to get so much done with only a two man team, in this horrible weather...well done guys!
And he pointed out this morning that the scaffolding on the roof was put up yesterday, so I am hoping that means the roof tilers will be starting soon :) The tiles have not been delivered yet, but I am rather excited as I though that the tiles couldn't start until the bricks have finished. But the brickie (Steve), pointed out that they can start while the bricks are still going. Gee I hope that's the case.
I will be back to post some pictures in the next few days. I haven't taken any of the brickwork yet, it's been disgustingly hot in the evenings, hopefully this weekend I'll be brave enough to get some snaps :)
We have had a lengthy experience with our house building adventures. It all goes back to April 2007, however things look like they might finally be happening! This object of this blog is to keep everyone updated on the progress :)
