Week 8 - Summary

Monday 9/1 - Sunday 15/1

It's been a little while since we've had much progress, and we're starting to get keen for something to happen!  Sadly, this wasn't really the week for that, even though the roof tilers were booked in for Friday 13/1.  The sisalation wrap is done, the roof tiles delivered, and the safety barriers fitted ready for the tilers, hopefully on Monday now.

We had more water leak problems too.  It seems like tradies from other builds come to our block to use water (which doesn't bother us), but because of the hole in the kitchen plumbing, when they turn on the mains we get flooded!  So I've cable tied the mains tap shut until the leak is fixed.

Also spoke with Austral, and the Magnesium brick has been delayed until 6/2 from 10/1. And that is no guarantee either.

Thursday 12/1:

Wrap, roof tiles and safety barriers.

Roof Tile - Monier Cambridge in Soho Night
Plan for next week:

Roof tiles fitted
Independent Inspection (booked for 18/1)
More brick discussions
Internal plumbing fixed / finished?


  1. Should be a big week for your guys good luck!

  2. Looks like you will have some big changes coming up! :)

  3. Just thought about the title of this blog. Your "first" build implies there will be more. Perhaps the readers would like to see included in the weekly report a rating: "Likelihood of doing it all again out of 10".
