Between framing and lock up

It's been a while since my last post. I Could blame being to busy, but really it's just laziness. The house is progressing well with no issues at this stage.

We finished framing in early to id September. Then thee was a lull for about 3 weeks and now they are in full swing in trying to complete the lock up stage. We organised a walk through with our builders, just to make sure we were all still on the same page. We went through every room and sure everything was still ok. The even took us up to the second floor. We were completely spun out by the views we will have. You imagine what it will look like, but when you actually get to see it... just wow!

So at this stage, we have had absolutely no problems with BH Developments. The lines of communication have been completely open. During the framing stage we noticed a couple little mistake. We spoke to the tradies and the builders, and the next day everything was fixed.

You hear so many horror stories about building, but we have had no issues and the quality of workmanship has been outstanding to date. During framing I double checked the rooms and they were all square and precise to the measurements. The brick laying has been exemplary. So all in all, we are over the moon so far... touch wood!
