Yesterday was the start of Week 26 of our 40 week build! Electrical rough-ins were meant to start yesterday - it didn't! Brickies are back on-site today, seems there is some repatriation work that needs to be done - we haven't been advised. Front yard was cleaned this morning, which is a positive.

Got our weekly call from Shane, our Site Supervisor - which I genuinely look forward to, not only for the recap on the week that was, but for what's upcoming and answering all our novice questions - he's great!

Thursday - Eaves are painted … Continue reading Weekly Site Supervisor Update
Really nice surprise to see that the Roof Tiles and Roof Timber was delivered today.
