It's hard to tell what the colours on the balcony will look like from these pictures. Kate snapped them from her mobile on the way past today. We'll have to get out there on the weekend and get some better shots, with better camera and lighting. The boards appear to have been painted too.

Not such spectacular visible progress this week, but things seem to be moving on none the less. The brick cleaning has been started. Very happy with the colour. They look even better than I'd thought. Not too much else seems to have happened. I could just get a glimpse through the window of what I'm sure was the silver ducting for the ducted air con.
The electricians are coming early next week.

We were totally amazed today at the progress when we drove to our house. We knew the roof was going on this week, so we were expecting to see it, but we didn't really expect to see too much else. What we discovered was that the cladding was also almost all done. The place is really starting to come together on the outside and it is beginning to resemble the finished product.

The wrong bricks will be staying. To Eden Brae's credit, as soon as they realised the error, they offered to immediately rectify the problem. Because we did not want to see the progress of the build stall, we have agreed to keep the brick and morocco finish on the multi room. Eden Brae have graciously agreed to upgrade the oven to a 900mm one and install a few additional power points and light points that we wish we had added at the electrical appointment. All in all a good outcome.
