Another slllloooowwww week at the block, the brickies still haven't finished and going by the dates on my photos we are 4 weeks now :-( Nothing happening interior wise this week at all - full stop. Apparently the construction manager was there during the week and made the brickie re-do around the front door as the mortar spacing wasn't perfect, we hadn't noticed at all!! even looking at the photo's I still can't pick it. The rain is back again too grrr, it is just the front and back pillars to go brick wise, which had it not rained all day Friday they probably would have finished. So hopefully next week the cladding and acid wash will be done! and something internal....anything internal really will make me happy, just not more pulling things apart and re-doing the same thing!
It is sooo great to see the facade bricks almost complete!! We can finally get an idea of what the house will look like, and I am very happy! A little bit nervous about the cladding, it was part of the original design and we didn't change it because we thought the brick might be a bit too dark and the cladding would break it up, but I love the bricks so much, I'm not so sure now.....
The brickie acid washed the windows to get the mortar off them, some of the acid wash went onto the bricks so now we can see at least a little bit of how they will look. The brickie is not doing the acid wash, apparently our fussy CM has some expert acid wash people who will come and do it.
Fingers crossed for a flurry of action next week!
