Bricks and Yet More Bricks!
11 May 2004
The absence of new photos over the past few weeks is
no indication of a
slowdown in activity at the Duckpond!
The west wall was finally completed - after the nightmare of creating a heap of
wedge shaped bricks for the pitch of the roof
A finished wall completely changes the whole feel of the room.
The internal stud wall will be lined with recycled timber some time soonish
We've also completed the external walls on the south side of the house
on the section which was to be Mum's.
All the walkways around the house will be paved with secondhand bricks,
and the fence in front of the water tank (full!) will be lined with brushy stuff
Another view of the same wall.
A timber panel still has to be put into the bathroom wall to house the bathroom fan
The same wall, this time photographed from the inside
We needed to use the same sand for all the north facing walls,
so thought we'd better finish these while we had the chance.
Yes - I know there's a brick missing, and there's still a small gap on the top of the other wall -
but we ran out of mortar!
