Frame pics

Just an update the started our frame on wednesday below are some pics from yesterday!
Oh and our administrator called yesterday and they can't get our bricks anymore.... :(
So I called Selkirk this morning and they advised that thye could no longer make ironstone anymore due to not being able to get one of the additives. But they did tell me that we can get Musket haze which was our second choice.... but of course now DP now wants to go back to Cosham tomorrow to double check that its definatey the brick we want!

Final Drawings and bank loan done

Well all the bank stuff is done!!! They have the signed documents and are ready to do our payment when required.

Final drawings turned up in the mail last night and are now all signed, sealed and hopefully delievered on monday! In with our final drawings there was a PCV which Henley did on our behalf as we chose a structural option and they had to shorten our kitchen bench by 180mm so they changed it on the plans and gave us a $106 rebate!

Spoke to our administrator and she said our site start was still looking good for next Friday! Lets see what happens!
