Custom Build with G Devel. in Bris - Onto Lock Up Stage

So glad we didn't end up going! My motorcycle helmet was accidently dropped, so we had to do a mad dash round the shops to get another one. Another expense…

Oh - I know that a combination bike lock isn't going to stop anyone from getting onsite, nor any lock on the house from getting inside. But yeah - it…

I would recommend if at all possible you push the budget and get a retaining wall with proper footings underneath it and one of the concrete block retaining wall systems…

It's a bit of oxymoron really - steal a lock so your item doesn't get stolen.....
I just don't want people in there potentially doing who knows what.

Haven't had much time to visit the house this week - mainly because it's just plaster being finished off. So it wont be much of a change.

It’s been a roller coaster of emotions for sure. Get all excited about a stage and before you know it - it’s completely changed!

Yep - spot on.
I have been getting quotes for security. Price is a little shocking but worth it I guess.
I’ll see if I can ask the SS once…

Some new pics for your viewing pleasure :)

I really want this house locked up now - I don't want any low-life damaging the walls or roof.

Bricks have been completed. Looking fabulous I've been told.
Plaster work has started - almost all of the ceiling has been done. A few…

They did a “good” job at making it look very patchy :)

Stopped by the house yesterday to move the left over bricks. They haven't quite finished yet, so that will have to wait till Wednesday. It looks great - the only…

Pre wire for solar panels and Roof supporting solar panels.

I'd say 2 as the panels are split from our main roof area and 4 panels on the garage.

I've just had mine pre wired - the roof question wasn't even asked.... I honestly don't think its a concern.
The only thing they have done is put the frames…

Hey - square set windows means that there are no arc traves on the inside - it pretty rare to see, but looks amazing. I'm getting square set ceilings too…

Yes - in light of these issues we will be getting an inspector for the lockup stage of the build.

I'd personally go with a perforated security screen - it acts like a tint and adds to the security.
