Walling finished

Went to the house today and saw that the hebel is just being finished. Rendering should start next week. More windows have been installed ... now we are waiting on our front sliding door and the rear bifold but they are cladding around the openings.

The 2 doors will have to fit into the area that has been left for them.

So progress has recommenced despite the lag with the windows.

We are meeting the builder on site to discuss the render colours ... we were thinking Mocha Magic and Fudge but think they may be too purple.

Now considering two new colours:

Double strength Dune (will match the roof and roller door but darker shade)
Ploughed earth

Will be deciding on Monday.

Zero progress with Windows

AGAIN we have problems with the window distributor who is taking WAY too long to complete the windows. Last deadline we were given by them was Easter and we are still waiting for the upper level windows to be installed. Not the fault of the builder who is trying his best to move things along. I guess these things happen when you build.

The other houses in the street are moving ahead of us now.

The window fellow is not my favourite person at the moment. It would be nice to see a couple more frames and a door or two in the next few days. We can only hope that the problem can be rectified as soon as possible and we can get past this hiccup to progress the build again.

Moving ahead at the rate of knots

Windows started to be installed and the build is progressing very quickly now.We are very pleased with the way it is looking, the quality of the workmanship, relationship with the SS and builder and progress. Here are some pics

Now we need to move ahead with ordering carpets, pavers, and other mod cons so we can progress our part of the project!!
