So hopefully tomorrow bricking starts!

Meeting with SS, New CSR & independent inspection

Hi everyone,
This morning my hubby met with our SS for the first time. Due to just starting a new job I couldn't make it!
He notified us that the roof tiles should be completed by next week. Then the brikies will begin & it should roughly take 6 weeks. So hopefully all bricked up by end of June!
On another note got a call from PD telling me that my 2nd CSR has left the company & a new person will contact me soon! Let's hope they are as good as the last 2 I have had.
New home inspections had someone out today, looking forward to seeing the report tomorrow. Hopefully it's all good. Will post report findings tomorrow night!

Frame stage completed :-)

Hi everyone, last night we received our invoice for the frame being completed :-) some of our windows have also been put in & our front door frame! See pics below of frame complete :-)

I have also decided to get independent site inspections done at frame stage, pre- plaster & hand over thru kevin at new home inspections.

As I've said before the best forum in building a new house helped me decide to go with this mob. He comes highly recommended from many people. He will be doing an inspection on Monday for us, looking forward to seeing the report & hoping that it's all looking good!

Our roof tiles have been delivered! Apparently they are starting tomorrow!
