I must admit to being slightly disappointed at not seeing such obvious progress during my drive by’s especially after the flying start we had with the framework. Well, it was a different story yesterday when I got a video call from my husband from inside the house! The brickies had left the padlock unlocked which was as good as an open invitation for a site walk through. So without much prompting, I hotfooted it down to the block to have a sticky beak.
Right off the bat, our site manager J informed us our team of bricklayers are very particular, meticulous – the best of the bunch! To my untrained eye, I have to agree that the brick workmanship is top notch. They are slowly but surely working their magic on our Hudson and it freaking looks amazing.
J gave me a noncommittal answer when I asked him about the schedule. He told me everything was going well and there was no reason to panic and crack the whip. He expects our brickies on our site all of next week. Ground floor brickwork seems to be 95% complete and they have made a start on some sections of the second storey. Now for the visual evidence..
During my previous site visits, I realised they had installed the wrong window to the Home Theatre. I had changed all our windows to awning but somehow they had ordered and put in the standard sliding window.
Yesterday’s site visit also marked the first time I’d walked through the second floor. Oh my god, what an unbelievably exciting occasion! As you can imagine there were a lot of squealing going on as I took in every nook and cranny upstairs. I was blown away and extremely delighted by all the space! I love love love everything about our house. Just wish Metricon would hurry up!
Final photo of the day – contact me if anyone is interested to buy a new sliding window in Monument (2410mm wide x 1800mm high).
