Room addition BUDGET UPDATE $16371.30
We've had a few days of rain so there had been no movement on the addition, then yesterday and today the brick piers went up. Boy are they tall! The yard slopes away much more than I thought and seems the room is now very high off the ground with the piers much more obvious than I had planned. The height may also mean that my deck/steps may have to be reconsidered. There were extra expenses with the piers since the council required rods up the middle of the piers and there were 80 extra bricks laid. Bricklayer $1392. Lovely guy Paul Cooksley - Highly recommended even though he laughed at my brick choice.
