Didn’t get a chance to unfortunately. I checked out photos of other people’s builds and saw that they had the same as us, which is 3 courses of single course…

It’s coming together well. I notice they haven’t done the 3 courses of single course bricks above your windows and doors. The only reason I mention it is because someone…

Need feedback on our floor plan

I'm a bit biased from our own plans, but I think the entry into the laundry off the hallway is a bit of a waste. If you took that door…

That’s interesting. They have done it above all windows and external doors, just not internal.
I’ll have to look into it.

It was more of the odd light shower this morning in our area. Just enough to be annoying!

Well the guys surprised us and did a half day today (Saturday), even though there was a bit of rain around.

We thought about doing the recycled bricks on our interior feature wall, but we were afraid of the cost and also the finished product. Being a recycled brick, you never…

You're right, it's at the back so I'm not really worried. I just hope they're a little more selective elsewhere, especially the pillars at the front and on our internal…

It's actually hard to believe how much they've done in 4 days. The quality of the work itself looks good, just a bit fussy when…

Some nice colours chosen. We went with lighter colours for our cabinetry, but I think we're going to do a darker splashback as a bit of a contrast (we're organising…

Initial estimate was $13k. Once they had done the survey and adjusted estimates for the water run-in, etc it came back at $24k, because of the additional earthworks and retaining…
