Brick Issues

We went for a drive to Austral yesterday to see if we can get a sample of our bricks. The last time we were there, we were told they were having issues making that type of brick.. that was about 3 or 4 months ago..
Well yesterday was no different. The bricks are all white, with some having a very thin red line through them.. they are meant to be half red and half white.. Its something to do with the crusher machine crushing the white rock too finely.We told them we are due to start building now and will need the bricks in a couple of months.. He is putting a note in the Newstart Reps tray to advise him of our build, and see what can be done.. We may need to choose more bricks!!! This has us really worried as there are no other bricks we like in this range, and it means we may need to upgrade.

On another downer.... still noone on site, despite us being told Excavations due for 5th and Drain installation due for 8th January...

This is what our bricks should look like..

and this is what the 'Monticello'bricks they are supplying now look like.

Oh Sha,
I can see what you mean. They are totally different. I would be devastated. Let's hope they get is sorted in the next few weeks. I'll keep fingers crossed for you as the original bricks were lovely and so different to the new version.
