Week 6 and 7 – Not a lot of progress!

Not a lot to report unfortunately! This was expected for one of the weeks but not for the other…

We knew that our brickies, whom I hasten to add had been working on the last two houses that Andy’s uncle had been building, were going to be on another little job in week 6 . Which was okay because the bricks would be arriving mid week

The bricks by the way are a furness ember blend, really beautiful and have a reclaimed look. They will definitely be in keeping with the other houses in the area

Anyway, we had all the materials ready on site and then in week 7 they told us that they weren’t coming back as they had a more permanent job so that was that. I was shocked! I didn’t know people did things like that! Apparently “back in the day” it used to be quite common

Very luckily Andy’s uncle got out his little black book and we now have someone who will be starting week 9, and so we have had 3 weeks with no site progress. As we live pretty much on site, its quite sad not being able to watch our little ring videos during the day and get excited about the daily progress

Oh well…onwards and upwards as they say! Hopefully there won’t be many more delays and we can keep our new brickie Dave happy! Watch this space…
