Update 12th March

ZZZZZ been a very quiet week on the house front this week. I spoke to the builder early in the week and he said that he was hoping to get the brick work started this week. He said that his normal crew were looking like taking another job before ours. He said worse case scenario the brick work would start on Friday 11th March.

I also spoke to him about another few issues, firstly it looks like the plumber has trouble looking at the fine points of the plan, he once again forgot something, the fridge plumbing, builder said plumber would fix this Tuesday. This was fixed when we went out.

Also for some unknown reason there was a small wall (about 500mm) just sticking out in the framwork between the kitchen and dining rooms, which was not on the plans, ummmm, what tha. I spoke to the builder about this, he was as suprised as me when he saw it, told me not to worry it would go, but the kitchen people had been out and done a site measure, we hope this is not going to be an issue. We promptly contacted them and they were also confused about the wall, we assured them it would be gone, but in the meantime our friend the plumber thought this was an ideal place for the stink pipe to go, well looks like more work for the plumber, oh well. Wall gone.

Also there was extra framework in the stair area, when we looked on site we were baffled as to how the stairs would work and how it would look. I sent the builder a picture of my vision of the stairs and he said that is how he was going to finish it off, he thinks that the draftsman put extra walls in plans, for some unknown reason, lol, but all sorted, it's good being an ex-trady at times I can speak the lingo with the builder.

Well we went out took some pictures and unfortunately no bricks layed yet, but have been stacked around the house, sand and cement shed all on site, so looks to be a goer for Monday, fingers crossed.
