No More Brickies (Day 130)

We get to blog twice in a week, things are off to a cracking pace since the SS has been back from holidays.
On Thursday the brick cleaner was back to finish cleaning the bricks on the ground floor. Derrick and I went out to the site this afternoon to check to see if the big I beam in the garage had been cut, so the garage roof can go on.  We got the best surprise,  not only had the beam been fixed, but the roof tilers had been and completed the roof on the ground floor  (alfresco and dining room).

Roof finished 

All the bricks have been cleaned
and it looks like a house now

We were so excited about all the work that had been done today we nearly missed the thing we have waited three months to complete.  THE BRICK WORK IS FINISHED.  So on a Saturday with the weather not the best, we had three trades on site.  This would have to be the best week in this whole process.  We left the site today excited about our house again, its been a while since we haven't left feeling frustrated.
Lets hope we can keep this pace for 2012.
