SS Update

I spoke to the SS today and he advised that the brick cleaning and rendering has been done and plan is to do eaves today. With 25-50mm rain forecast for today and rain for the next few days, I guess it will be impossible start this week.
I can't believe the amount of rain falling to Sydney these days.

I've called up the SS today and he said that facia and gutter installation has been completed and roof tiles  will be laying for the next 3 days.

In addition, he mentioned that he will be able to show me the $2000 steel beam when we meet up for the electric layout.

Looking forward to go and have a look on Saturday.

My colleague Micheal was kind enough to take some pictures of the house while riding around the area.

$2000 steel beam

In order to satisfy the folks in DRB we had to do a 350mm brick return in the rear and I had to pay $2000 for a steel beam to hold the weight of the bricks according to Wisdom. Is this the $2000 beam?

Rain Rain Go Away

Happen to be in the construction site last saturday (4th Feb) and seems like nothing much happened due to the uncharacteristic rain in this summer.

I have seen water on the floor boards of the wooden frame and wonder whether it can impact in the long run.
