Looking great! Lots of progress!
Make sure you take lots of photos and reference measurements for you pipes if you plan on putting things on walls.

Sub-Standard Brickwork

True you are right. Just looking at how our house was built the bricks aren't structural.

Could you do your own noggins? Usually they just use scrap pieces of timber from the site and at them in anyway!

How annoying! The good news is that it's not structural. Since houses are brick veneer it wouldn't be structural. Do you like the look of render? That may be…

Definitely argue re the door. Whilst they can change suppliers they need to advise. Also you should be getting similar to the display.
What have they said re the aluminium…

Yeah their raked ceiling looks great but it's hard to justify the dollars

It's really taking shape!
What's the ceiling height? I find your design will be light and airy in any case but the additional height makes it feel even larger.

Those doors look amazing!
Looks like the supplier for the glazed doors changed too. Our neighbours windows were from Dowell so I would have thought you'd get the same.
