The build has come along enormously in the last few weeks; with the progress comes more bills but it’s not a problem because it’s so exciting to see it all moving forward!
We couldn’t be happier to have our fireplace in! The bricklayer came about 3 weeks ago and he was incredibly fast, within a week he’d placed the bricks all around the house and started on the fireplace.
Before the week was finished we were looking up, the chimney was slowly making its way up the side of the house. The weather was perfect, although crisp and cold it stayed dry for the brickie so he wasn’t delayed doing his work.
It’s crazy really, we chose the bricks in October 2018, and in December 2019 they were laid. It’s crazy, we really didn’t know what to expect when they started going in, we had an idea of what we wanted and within a few days, we were excited to see they met and exceeded our expectation.
Next up, the roof! We’re beyond excited to see the roof go on! Again, we chose the roof tiles back in October last year, so to see them go up and onto the roof will be a crazy experience.
