Brooks Reach Building adventure

Come with us now on a tale of the mighty house building.

Gutters, and fascia, and roof! Oh, my!

We headed out to our lot yesterday after a beautiful weekend away with our Bible Study group in Killcare (Central Coast region). It was a beautiful 20 degrees (only a week until winter hits too.)

Sad to say there was no roof up yet, BUT there were roof tiles and battens ready to be installed. Our bricks have also had a beautiful spray clean 😀

We are loving the gutters and fascia and can’t wait to see it all together when the eaves, downpipes and roof are installed.

So we were originally meant to move the bricks today after work but the SS called on Friday and said not to bother as there were several delays on the house due to wet and windy weather last week. There was still scaffolding and the roof tiles in the way so SS said we could move the bricks once they head inside to work in a few weeks. It all worked out in the end as Hubby and I came down with terrible colds so we would not have been very productive anyway.

SS advised Lock up should be less than 3weeks away now 🙂 Lovely Nat over on Homeone mentioned on the forum today that they were busy working away on the roof with a cute little conveyor belt delivering the tiles onto the roof!Cheer

Brick-it down now

*hums ‘can’t touch this’* As of May 17th, our brickwork is complete 🙂 Completely Bricked Ain’t she a beauty?!!!

Our gutters and fascia were delivered last week and our SS said the Fascia went up on Tuesday 🙂

There have been some issues with weather, first wind and now rain, so Clarendon have been set back a little. Yesterday we were meant to move the leftover bricks from the front our lot to to the back so we could save them from being taken or thrown out. SS said it’s ok to have a few extra people onsite to help move them so we will try and convince a few friends to give us a hand (with the promise of cookies!!) We’ve been told there is no real rush to move them as gyprock won’t be delivered for another 2 weeks (sad face). But I figure it’s best to get them moved to a safer/secure location asap so we’ll head out Monday 27th after work.

And here are some other shots from around the lot just because 😀
