It's been almost 24 hours, it is definitely GREY. We were hoping it just needed to dry, and with recent temperatures in Sydney being over 30degrees, it is fair to say, the mortar repair is fairly dry. And it's still GREY! Second Practical Completion Inspection next Tuesday morning, we'll see what Clarendon has to say … Continue reading Off White vs Grey Mortar
It's 2018. Yay!! It was in 2016 when we first put money down on our Clarendon Home, building commenced in 2017, and here we are in 2018 and still NO home!! We don't feel very happy. Infact, we're deflated, disappointed, angry and today feeling incensed. Our house has sat idle for 3 weeks, construction teams … Continue reading Happy New Year!!

Drove past the house on Saturday, on our way to Baseball, and noticed the Painters were on-site - so that was alittle exciting. The Sliding Doors were still sitting up against our back fence, so not sure how they haven't been completed given the Chippie apparently has finished everything. We stopped by yesterday morning after … Continue reading Update
Received our weekly call from our Site Supervisor today (and to be perfectly honest, I didn't think we would, but very happy we did!). Shane confirmed that all the Scaffolding has come down and that first stage Waterproofing had been completed, additional bricks had also been delivered to the site. Bricklayer was coming in tomorrow … Continue reading Weekly Site Supervisor Update
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. Secretly was … Continue reading Week 26
The Little Brick!!! We swung by the house one afternoon, after the scaffold had been lowered, and stood back and just admired at how beautiful our house is, marvelled at how far along it had come....then I saw it!! The Little Brick. The Little Brick on the capping. The Little Brick on the capping of … Continue reading The Little Brick
Drove past our place this morning, and to my surprise, there were Render guys on-site. According to Shane's run down last week, they shouldn't have been there until Friday - although very cool from our perspective. We understand that Shane can't be at all sites at all times, and that he may not be across … Continue reading Render
Shane our Site Supervisor called late this afternoon, for our Weekly Update, as he will be unable to tomorrow - two lucky homeowners have their handover tomorrow, so he will be preoccupied with that. He apologised for sounding like a broken record, but assured us that the Brickwork would be completed tomorrow (because it definitely … Continue reading Site Update
Bricking at our place was definitely not completed today! Not sure how that affects everything else planned for this week, we'll see how it pans out and when we touch base with the Site Supervisor on Friday.
