Walls!

For those that haven't been closely following my gallery closely, we now have walls. Actually, we've had a complete set of walls since the Wednesday after Easter, but I've been too busy/slack to upload photos and document it here. Construction of brickwork started on March 24th and completed on April 6th (and when I get around to it, photos I'd taken the next day will appear here). I'm horribly behind on uploading photos. On the other hand I've all done all the stitching. But on the third hand I'm not up to date with captioning the photos I've already uploaded either. Oh well. In the meantime, go look at the Swancon photos. Also take a look at the huge Koi (seven hundred dollars?!! *faints*) in my mum and step-fathers' pond, which I saw for the first time when I visited for lunch on Easter Sunday.

Wrote a grumbling kind of letter to BGC/Commodore. They're trying to claim not needing to compensate us for delays in February and March to window frames (because they didn't notice our front window was not a size they manufactured), roof timbers (despite brickwork not actually being completed any time in March!) and rain (despite there being just one (working) day of non-zero rainfall in the second half of March). I look forward to hearing their reasoning. Sigh. While it hasn't yet put me off building, I think if I did it all again I would not touch any BGC-affiliated building company with a barge pole. As for Linda's opinion, well all I'll say is that I keep having to tell her that it's not me she should be raising her hackles at. She thinks I'm too soft on BGC. :P

I hear Scott Park Homes are good...
