Bricks and mortar

The brick laying is almost complete. It's great to see the house coming to life.

We chose the Topaz brick from the Austral Metropolis range and I really like how it looks so far. I think it will work really well with the grey accents on the gutters, downpipes and so on.

Hopefully my thoughts will be confirmed in the coming weeks!

How's this for progress?

Granted its been a while between posts, a little person or two have been consuming my time, and energy. But the house has come along in leaps and bounds in the last month. We're well and truly into the brick Iaying phase. Lets hope lock up is only another month away!

Finally some progress!

It's been a bit of a wait for some progress on the house. We signed off on the final plans six odd weeks ago and just last week they drilled and did the piering.

Lets hope they manage to get the slab down before Christmas, but I won't be holding my breath.

Final plans signed!

I have just been to the Post Office to send back the signed copies of our final plans for construction.

Looking forward to seeing some progress on our bare looking block very soon!

Going, going, gone!

It only took a day for the whole house to be cleaned up  Unfortunately, our two beautiful cherry trees went with it.

Can't wait for the building to begin!

Action station

A Komatsu PC220 was in our front yard as I cruised by this morning. And a truck and dog parked across the street. I think the house will be flattened today!

The Construction Site

Our place has officially become a construction zone. A fence has been erected and work has begun to remove the remains of our first home.

In other news, we have survived almost three weeks of living with my parents. They have embarked on a nine week SKI (spending kids inheritance) trip to Europe and South America, so my husband, daughter and I will have the place to ourselves. I will be partying as much as any woman in her third trimester of pregnancy looking after an almost 2 year old can do - which needless to say is not a lot.
