Bricks Baby

After a flying start with the wall and roof frame being completed in super quick time, we had a week of playing the waiting game for bricklayers to start on our house. Apparently there is a shortage of bricklayers in Sydney and we have to wait our turn in the queue!┬áIn the scheme of things, a week of idle time is not a big deal but when it’s your dream house on the line it’s still a frustrating exercise.

Anyhoo, our team of brickies showed up to work on Tuesday (17/2) and by noon on Friday (20/2) they have almost finished bricking the ground floor. The scaffolding is booked to be erected on Monday (23/2) and brickwork to the second floor scheduled to be completed by the end of next week. Woohoo!

Here are a few snaps I took yesterday.
