Front render and rear retaining walls complete

Popped round to site over the weekend to see that the render was done and the rear retaining wall is in.

Front rendering. Gutters and fascia completed.

Rear retaining wall completed (much to neighbours relief as they need to get their fences up)

Brickies BBQ :)

Today we said thanks to the brickies for their hard work over the past few weeks. Slab of Tooheys, lots of sausages and a good deal of humour.

Oh, and the bricks are looking great. :)

BBQ in the kitchen. Just perfect :)

I even laid a few bricks. Change of career?

Tooheys and Brickies - the perfect combo?

Brickwork progress

Brikkies are onsite and really getting moving. I popped in to site on my way to work today to see that the ground floor is almost complete.

DW and I were quite nervous about the chosen colour but seeing them up on the wall our fears were unfounded - we think they look great. For those interested, they are Austral Urban One range (Olive).

Scaffolding goes up next and then top floor, which is scheduled to complete by Friday 19th (weather permitting).

Below are a few pics taken today.

Front red bricks will be rendered and painted

Austral Urban One - still to be cleaned and finished
