6 pallets of unused bricks GONE...

I'm a bit annoyed at the moment. On several occasions I had asked my SS that I keep the left over bricks from the house so I could use them for our front fence. It was only last Friday afternoon, I rang my CSA and asked if I could have permission to move the pallets to the back of the property over the weekend. She said she would get back to me. Well, she hasn't yet, and now the bricks have gone back to the manufacturer. I will be ringing her tomorrow to try and get them back. If that fails I will have to go directly through Daniel Robertson and pay for them myself and get them to somehow hold them for me, at least until the scaff comes down and I can have access to the back of the properly and move them there myself. Not happy, Jan, not happy at all.

Apart from that bitter disappointment, things have been moving along nicely. The eaves have been finished on the top storey, including the linea bands which will be rendered and painted Paperbark to match the fascias, gutters, windows and downpipes:







We also have our 'Jasper' weatherboards!





I'm really happy with the way they have turned out. I was a little concerned that the Jasper would be too dark, but I always knew to have Paperbark boards was going to look wrong. At least this way they blend in with the bricks well, and certainly don't stand out. Best of all, they will never need painting!

Grrrrrr at the bricks...

Triple Grrrr.....How annoying! I wonder what sort of communication there was between your CSA on Friday and SS who must have known someone was collecting them on Tuesday? I hope you get them back, hope more that you don't have to pay for them.

On a brighter note, your house is looking wonderful. Bricks look great! I'm looking forward to seeing your brick colours come to life after a clean!

Thanks Girls. I hope I don't have to pay for them either. I'm so frustrated, but I'm trying hard not to let it put a dampener on the proceedings. Still awaiting a return call from my CSA...

Hi Stormygirl,

Sad to see that happened to you...

Based on my experience, you just have to grab whatever been left on site and store it somewhere for future usage: roof tiles, bathroom tiles, bricks, manuals, diagrams, cornices, spare parts,...etc.

We lost quiet a few things on site as well.. no one will look after whatever been left on site, grab whatever you could before it disappears!
