Another Brick in the Wall...

Week 6.

Another busy week on site has passed.
Monday saw bricks, bricks and more bricks delivered as well as associated materials.
Tuesday work commenced on the external bedroom wall. I must say we were very pleased to see how neat the brick work is compared to other places I have seen.
Weep holes are being inserted as per the bushfire provisions and the colour (Truffle by Austral Bricks) looks great!

I was a bit up and down with external colour concern this week, worried that we have gone too dark with our selections overall but after paying close attention to similar houses I think I am at ease now as our render for the front bedroom wall is a light grey (Silkwort by Dulux) and I believe this will break up the dark selections!

During the week while the brick work has been steady the electrical and plumbing fit out has commenced on the inside.

We have brackets up for our light switches, tv points, data points, ducted heating installed, fibre optics cable installed, plumbing for the bath/toilets/shower has commenced as well as power point brackets.

Mr New SS has advised us that the bricks and internal works on electrical and plumbing will take about 2 weeks in total and then we move on to internal walls!
