Scaffolding were down....

It's been a while since my last posts...
Eaves was installed last week and painted this Monday. After that was nothing happened until yesterday when scaffolding were down. Almost 2 weeks of sunny days were gone just like that...:(

I have been feeling really down and sad the last few weeks.
The slowness of the progress that I can't bear after the scaffolding are down, I can see today that many bricks are not good, lots of chips here and there...2 cracked bricks, un-aligned bricks, and also dirty roof.

Here are some of the pics that bugs me :

1. Chips bricks like these, have a few more around the house:

2. Zig zag bricks at the entrance doors corner, have 2 at the entrance door and 1 at the alfresco, these what really upset me today :

3. Chips brick again :

4. Unaligned bricks under window (there are 2 more on the facade and at the back) :

What do you guys think ? Should they replace them / And when do they usually do it? Is it after all bricks are cleaned?

Now I can sleep more peacefully knowing the 2nd floor will be watertight....:)


Good to see on Saturday that 2 men were working on our site, doing the sarking! Wow, great progress & we're happy because the next day until now, it rains & rains.... I hope the sarking will be fine in this weather... Looking forward to roof this weekend though...:)
