After numerous set-backs and bad weather, the bricking has begun. The bricks were delivered around two weeks ago, but since then our site supervisor left, the area manager took over, and then another site supervisor came onboard. While we were waiting, some minor plumbing for the gas and water pipes was completed.
The bricklayers were actually out on saturday AND sunday which came at quite a shock. They managed to get all this done over the weekend, so they are moving at a good pace. Apparently if the weather behaves itself, they should be done by the end of the week.
