Looking forward to seeing gutters/facia and roof tiles on lower level as well as inside work starting. Not to mention seeing the scaffolding start to come down.

Verandah and balcony taking shape

Our Verandah/balcony is starting to come together
and nice to see the feature brick at last.
We are really happy with the contrasting
colours of the 'Silver' and 'Pepper' bricks.

We met up with our builder to do the electrical layout today and he let us go upstairs (via a ladder) to have our first look at the golf course view and it was even better than we expected. Thanks Craig.

Bricks about to start!!!

We took a late drive out to our build today with our dogs with the intention of walking around the estate which we did and found that our bricks had been delivered and arranged in little piles around the house. After our walk we bumped into the brickie who was dropping off some equipment because the guys were getting an early start tomorrow yay!
