Our bricks have been cleaned and look fantastic. They are straight and true, the corners are sharp and the job just looks a million dollars. I should ask who the brickies were because I would recommend them to anyone. But...I didn't get a good photo of the bricks! I shall see if I can get us to the house tomorrow to take some pics to upload. So, watch this space.
Sadly, we really didn't take enough photos in general. We were a bit preoccupied with just looking, plus I have a cold and Mick was busily taking measurements :( I've supplemented with some older pics not previously posted (the bricks aren't shiny in them though).
So, now onto the photos we DID take!
|Main bathroom (bath plumbing)|
|Main Bathroom Skylight!!! (How I wish I had seen it in person, however Mick was the only one able to go upstairs with the builder as he has his White Card)|
|Main Bathroom Skylight! I can't wait to soak in a bath and look at the sky...|
|Steel beam in the garage. Well worth the expense to not have a center pylon (one less thing to look out for when parking!)|
|View from the Kitchen/Meals area of another expensive steel beam. Again worth it though, just to not have a pylon blocking the view.|
|Media Room windows. Apparently they're not quite centered in the room. Hopefully it won't be noticeable when the house is done...|
|Shiny bricks clad our Media Room!|
|Side access (non-shiny bricks)|
|View from the formal living room into the study. That horrible waste-water pipe (our nemesis) may be able to be re-located outside (we will cross our fingers and keep you posted)|
|The Garage, or Mick's "Manland." I can just see the beer fridge, work bench and motorbikes now...|
|View from the upstairs TV Room (again, super jealous that I didn't get to see in person)|
There are still a few issues, but they should be sorted in time, and all-in-all the house is looking great and we can't wait to be in.
