He also let us know the head brickie has been off sick after a brief trip to the hospital so it has just been him doing the bricking! no wonder it is on the go slow. I asked him about the area that doesn't have the wrap he said they had had to take it down because of the fence and that the chippies need to put it back, and to make sure they do. They have been having lots of problems with the bricks themselves, they are different colours and different sizes, apparently the SS and CM have been out to inspect it and have said just to keep going. The skip is overflowing with discarded bricks. They have been doing a really good job of mixing up the different colours and using the "good" bricks but looking at them a lot of them are pretty crap. There isn't much they can do though, and there really isn't any point pulling them down and starting again. We are hoping to have enough $'s to put a clear glaze over the top of them after handover, but will just have to see how we go.
The other thing we noticed, is throughout the build our SS has been carrying on about next door having their bits and pieces on our land and has had multiple run ins with their SS, but today we noticed we have 5 pallets of our bricks in their front yard and the roof of our outdoor room is leaning up against their back wall, nowhere near our house! So will be funny to see if the tables are turned, and who would blame them!.
Here are some piccies of today's progress:
