Bricks and Roof Almost Complete

With the long weekend and fantastic weather there was no excuse, we drove past the block to check on things.

Our bricks are nearly done (well, to our untrained eyes anyway)! It's great to start to get a sense for the balcony and fa├žade. I can't wait to see the cladding go up.

Our roof is almost finished as well. Just the Alfresco area to tile. (I tried to take a pic from the back, but it didn't turn out very well):

I'm excited to report that we have an inspection booked with the builder this Saturday. So more pics will be available next week.

Also, one weekend soon Mick will be data-cabling the house with his friend who normally cables large commercial fit-outs. We're very grateful for his help and that our builder will let us do this before hand-over.

Mick also purchased a second storage unit, as our first filled-up long ago and we now need a place to stash things like tiles, vanities and the fridge we won. So...let the ordering begin!


  1. Yay. Looking really good. It actually looks like a home now, doesn't it?

    1. Yes, I guess it does! I can't wait for the outside to be complete and the scaffolding down. Well, really I can't wait for it ALL to be done haha!

  2. Woo! That will be so awesome when you get to have a proper look this weekend. Your facade looks gorgeous, love that little peak at the top.

    1. Thanks Lauren :) We're really pleased with it and are excited about the tour.
