That is great. We were really excited once we got our sign too as that signalled the end of the initial stage of building. We were down at the in-laws today in Wandi and took a little drive around Aubin Grove. It really is a nice suburb with the parks and open space.
It will be good to follow your build too.

*Insert wolf-whistle* Nice house! I agree, the roof tiles and the brick colour go really well together, particularl with the lighter coloured fascia tying them in. Very nice!
Bet you can't wait for your plastering to start!

Dragon - that roof looks great and I LOVE that pic of the roof from underneath. Remind me...what colour are your roof tiles - and are they Bristile ones. The colour looks like ours!!! I think it looks great with the lighter fascia and then red bricks

Kirsada - yep Bristile Marseille graphite. Very similar to yours.
Mrs Smith - you seem to have caught the good weather! Like they say, timing is everything.
Just hope that the eaves and front render colour we have selected go together as well. Not much real progress today, just site clean #2 and also delivery of another load of sand. So hopefully the float will be started tomorrow.
Anyone else drive into their garage just to see if the car fits??? Ahh the little things...

I knew your tiles were Marseilles profile
We knew our car wasn't going to fit in the garage and paid heaps to make it longer from the outset!!!!!! (It better fit now)

Jpeg - I think as we are only rendering the bottom 7 courses, it was probably not worth their while having to change bricks.
The float was started yesterday however the other half does not think that they worked too hard as they only completed bedroom 4 and bedroom 5! I think the empty carton of beer in the kitchen helped to fuel her argument! However they are sweeping the rooms as they go (and there was a lot of mess from the brickies/roof carpenters and roof tilers).

How frustrating about the empty beer carton, and not even on a Friday!!
It them a few days to do ours too. Maybe they only started in the afternoon, following another house?

Unfortunately they started in the morning, yes I still go past the house on my way to work. You would think I would be tired of doing this by now.
More work today. So now the laundry, powder, bathroom and linen cupboard is done. At this rate, I estimate that the render float will be done by Tuesday week!
