Those brickies worked hard today. Four of them turned up early this morning, before I left to go to the gym. And they were still there at around 5:00pm. We figure they've done all they can now without scaffolding. And more bricks.
I haven't bothered posting a pic of the front view, since there's so much crap in front of our block you can barely see the house (portaloo, rubbish skip, piles of building materials...). But here's the side view:
And the back:
The roof tiling's more or less all done. There's still cementing to do and so on, but the tiles are all laid.
We've had minor annoying issues with the carpenter who's doing the framing - because he's a complete moron, and keeps getting things wrong. So there's still some stuff he needs to come back and complete/fix/redo. Can the man not READ a plan?
Anyway, in about another 10-12 weeks, the idea is that it will look something like this:
