Building 'The Lodge' - Our Journey

We never thought this day would come but finally our land is 'scraped and pegged' and the house-build is officially commencing on Tuesday 7th October 2008. We hope you will join us throughout our first house-build project... exciting times ahead!

And even more bricks... we think - 2nd week of December 2008

Well it was hard to tell whether any progress had actually been made this week - I compared last week's pics with this week's pics and couldn't see a great difference - but then we have had some rain so we'll let them off...!

In other developments, we were disappointed to learn that the tile we had chosen for the kitchen splashback - a glass mosaic type style in creams, browns and pale greens - is no longer produced so they are going to send us out an alternative to consider... hopefully it will be just as nice!

Just a few pics... hopefully we'll have some more interesting updates for you next week - we are both hoping they're going to make a start on the roof very soon!

More bricks - 1st week of December 2008

As I think I mentioned before, it's quite hard to see what progress has been made now we can no longer get into the site and all the scaffolding is up but there had definitely been a bit more brickwork undertaken when we visited a couple of weeks ago on the 7th - they're almost up to the top!

I let the pics do the talking as there's very little else to say at this stage... click on the big pic to take you to the slideshow!
