First stumbling block....

Thursday 10th February 2011

Well I am now eating my words! Our site supervisor called us on Thursday 10th February to inform us that the bricks we had chosen were not available (or given to another job) and that there would be a 4 week wait. The impact to the schedule would be significant! And also to our back balance with extra rent and interest to pay. 

We were ask to go reselect bricks but due to our colour choice PGH Espresso not offering an alternative we were left to quote for a significantly more expensive brick - PGH Blue Flash Steel. However with an extra $6k price tag we decided that we would wait.

On Monday 14th February 2011, a miracle occurred and PGH informed us that they miraculously found enough bricks to complete the house and that bricklaying would commence on Thursday 17th February. Hopefully we don't have a multi coloured house with bricks from different husband will be watching it very carefully.

  1. Homeowner, we also used PGH Espresso bricks and I am so happy with the result. I was going to upgrade as I wanted the dark colour but the cost was going to be exorbitant, so happy we stuck with Espresso.
