We're Surrounded

We're surrounded by bricks. They must have arrived late on Friday afternoon as when we went to check things out yesterday there they were in neat piles all around the house. I must say I am very pleased with the colour both in the sun and shade which is a good job as we decided not to go for any render. The majority of houses adjacent to the blocks of land have pale to grey renders with colorbond roof and we wanted something different plus the idea of repainting and maintaining render every few years felt like it would be too much effort and cost. Apparently brick is in fashion again so why not show it off. We went for metropolis stone by Austral, which was a category 2 upgrade, with off-white mortar.

There are piles of gyprock in the garage and the master suite and the coving has also arrived. The builders have swapped the bi folds over so now at least they open the right way but those height issues still remain. From our rough estimates of tile height once laid the door track will stick up by over almost 2cm if left as is there is room to drop it by this amount as i can stick my hand under the gap between the bottom of the door frame and the concrete. Let's hope it all gets rectified tomorrow.
