wow, I can't believe they're doing such a good job then when it's all going to be rendered!!!!
Can't wait to see it on Sunday. . . yay! Day out!!!
Only the front portico will be rendered, everywhere else is facebrick. I just said to Sunshine tonight, I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone on Sunday and showing them my house, cause I know everyone will say its great and that will make me feel good and hopefully help me start to enjoy this build again
Oh Bel, Thank you for your kind words, but makes me feel like a spoilt brat After everything you have been through and then I whinge about about my brickies, puts things into perspctive. I know we arent allowed to ask but I do hope things are starting to look up on your end
Hi Gogo!!! I've only just skim read the last couple of pages but the bricks look great! Sorry you aren't enjoying the build at the moment - I know how that feels.
Ok, I am walking through your house in my head right now because I can't be there and I figure it is about now that homeone is meeting at your block.... I need comments people.... is it all as great as it looks in the photos and plans???
Hey SC, We had a good day, spent a bit longer than expected at the mean fiddler, and didnt quiet get time to visit your site, but will take Sunshine one day. We had some surprise visitors whom had lots to say, muts catch up for coffee one day to give you the gossip.
Did you go past your house today? are you happy with the brickies progress??
Yeah I have to say they put in a good days work yesterday they finished the rhs and up to second story on the back they will be finished Wednesday no doubt can't wait to see what they get through tomorrow I think by tomorrow arvo we will be pretty much at the same stage. Fingers crossed we will get tiled by the end of the week as the forecast is looking pretty good!!!!

THANK YOU for opening your house to complete strangers!!! it is so good to now be able to see it in our heads...in 3 D. (it is ginnnnooooooormous) It was good to meet steve and sarah too and see their home and willcres and lot 13..their dirt!! slab dance soon I hope. Gogos mates turned up and he took a group shot of us all on her alfresco, then onto sunshine T's home with frames and lovely bush views, and her gorgeous family, and Ryan and her daughter kate came, and loretta and dee, and carmel and another lovely family who had built with zen before and jodge who has already built as had mrs rose and her hubby and son who have also moved in, and of course moi, who gatecrashed the whole aussie build thing, cos I built in nz! and to drive in convoy around sydney was so blues brothers!! thank you, you are my hero
1. kiwi - YOU, my dear, are the hero. For (a) inspiring the gathering, and (b) doing all that bl00dy driving yesterday!!! We really should have planned that better. If I'd known we weren't going for coffee afterwards then I would have definitely brought cake and drinks to my site (especially as it was not exactly 'en route').
2. gogo - sorry, but yes, your house is GIGANTIC! And you know it. wiggle wiggle wiggle. 53 squares and 20ft ceilings say it all. It's going to be beautiful. I am now officially naming my house 'The Dollshouse'. DH laughed when he heard your estate has a minimum living area requirement of 300sqm. We have a maximum FSR for living of 262sqm (our original plans had 275 but Council knocked us, so we squeezed in with 261.5sqm. it's coz we are in a Scenic Protection Zone thingy, so must have more lawn / landscaping etc. Worked out the numbers with jodge yesterday, and our total place - including garage and patios etc = 39 squares).
I am so coming out for another visit in a month or so. This time I will get the turn off so I don't miss out on the bottom floor tour.
scgia - I tried to drive past your place (with directions from gogo) but couldn't see it. Let's arrange something for a month or so (is there an echo?).
