this week

This last week has seen some ups and downs. the sarking and tiles were done yesterday and today! That was exciting.
However, we have also noticed holes in our mortar, and that the plumber must've made an error and cut into our slab ande changed our pipes for our kitchen sink.
We have been told by others that this should never happen and could void our warranty, however, we had no idea of it.
We are waiting to see what is going on. Here are some pics

Slowing down

Our bricks were finished over a week ago, plumbing is finished. Electrical still needs to be done. On Monday we saw our eaves and gutters put on t he top floor, however, nothi g really major is happening. Other double stories starting after us had bricks finished and roof and gutters done this week which has been upsetting. Our colours are looking good, just to choose colour of cladding. I want iron grey to match gutters and down pipes however, Scott want surf mist to match windows. I don't want the cladding to stand out or get discoloured, as we don't like cladding. Next difficult choice lol
