We are now about half way with our bricks. The lower floor is pretty much complete except for the sections where there is a drop edge beam. They couldn’t go any higher there without scaffolding, which was delivered yesterday. Hopefully they don’t muck around getting the scaffolding up and they can get cracking with the second floor bricks.
Once the bricks started we found a few issues with the slab. The draftsperson had actually left a bit of slab off the slab plan (always handy!) so they have had to add more concrete to the pillar at the right hand side of the garage. The concreters measurements must have also been out as the right hand corner at the front we have 30mm overhang on one pillar, and then 30mm underhang on the other! Our SS wasn’t concerned and said it would all be fixed where needed.
The brickies seem to have done a pretty good job so far and we are happy with our brick selection, especially considering it was just in the standard range of bricks.
Now for some photos..
