HOUSE UPDATE | WE HAVE BRICKS
Hey! Gosh it has been sometime since I have blogged! I miss it so MUCH. I have been super busy with a new job and I have neglected Our Urban Box. I really hope to find my groove again soon.
I wanted to pop in quickly today and give an update on our house progress as I know a few of you were wanting a update. Since my last post about the roof going on, the exterior is all but done! Actually I think it is all finished.
We have had our windows installed, hebel and linea board fitted and bricks have been laid. After second guessing my brick and roof colours, I think it has all come together really well. We are both really excited now! One thing I am disappointed about is the kitchen window size. In the rush to get our third lot of plans drawn and through council, I didn’t even check the size! It somehow got changed from the second plan. Anyway, it is a bit small for the space. But the bonus is that the BBQ will sit under it and you won’t be able to see it from inside. And I won’t get BBQ splatter over it! But other than that, everything is better than we’d imagined.
Here are some pics for you –
We chose the Espresso brick with off white, flush mortar, white windows and surfmist roof, fascia and gutter.
I think the plasterer starts this week. Can’t wait for this, because I will start to get a sense of room size. I will be posting lots of pics of that over on Instagram so make sure you are following along!
I’ll be back next week with some new posts hopefully! See you then!
