Not happy with elderton once again things are moving so slow, talked to a few people building in Jordan springs and they say the same thing not to mention the quality isn't the best we are not happy with the brickwork. Apart from elderton having days off the weather has been great. I wonder if anyone will be there this week?.

The eves were done today! we are liking how elderton have picked up the pace considering there was a week were nothing was done and it can be frustrating and the weather isn't to blame the weather has been great not a rainy day all week. The roof tiles still have not arrived it must of been annoying being a few short we hope it doesnt rain as water will get traped under the tiles and we don't want any part of the frame wet no to mention going in and sitting on the eves. Not only was the eves done today the cladding at the front was done. This will be stained to a timber look finish.I'm guessing next job will be electrical.

What a perfect day for building a house today clear sky's no wind nice and sunny our roof tiles were delivered today but no workers on site, it's expected to rain tomorrow going by the weather channel so that's not good news.. Hopefully the rain holds off as we can't wait to get the roof on its been very slow and we are sure there have been delays as the bricks are still not cleaned. If the roof is on the frame won't get wet anymore as it is not treated wood.

Monday was the queens birthday which meant public holiday u seem to hate them when your building a house than Tuesday it rained but today clear sky's than light Arvo rain but great news the gutters and faccia have been finished! They look great very happy with the colors couldn't of picked a better match to the bricks. Next step brick cleaning and roof tiles.

Friday, June 8, 2012


Today is Friday no one has been on site since Monday when the brick work was finished it only rained on Wednesday so we are a little disappointed with how slowly things moved this week not to mention Monday is a public holiday so hopefully things will move quicker next week. I contacted elderton with a response of they have to let the mortar dry before they can clean the bricks, so once the bricks are cleaned they than start on the roof.
