Fascia & Gutters installed

Went for a look today to see the bricks at 99% completion!  We are extremely happy with the workmanship and love love love our brick choice!  The fascia & gutters are also up and look fantastic :-)  The roof and insulation has also been delivered on site today so we should see the roof go up over the next few days!
McDonald Jones & our SS are doing such a great job of making sure everything is happening when it should!

1 by 1 the brickies make our house!

The hardworking brickies started work today!  In the space of a few hours they've started with the alfresco and back walls and one third of the laundry side.  We are so pleased with our choice of Symmetry Earth and look forward to the end result.

Progress made the following day……

Bricks almost 100% complete, fascia & gutters arrive

It's a new year and our builder is moving things along quickly!

Happy New Year everyone! This year is going to bring a lot of joy to those building in Glenmore Ridge!  Our builder McDonald Jones are back from their christmas break and are full steam ahead thanks boys & girls (oh and thanks to this wonderful sunshine)!

The roof trusses were finished on Monday 9/1 and the plumber was also kept busy installing all the copper pipes for town & tank water + the gas mains.

Our Austral Symmetry Earth bricks were delivered Tues 10/1 and sand has taken residence in preparation for the brickies to endure the hard labour!  The next couple of weeks will be exciting for us as we watch our house transform into something we've only dreamt about for so long!!!!  I'm so happy with everything MDJ have done so far and our SS Peter is great :-)
