Some more pix of the bricks. Apparently waiting now for terma-guard layer or something.
The first course of bricks have made it around the left-hand-side of the house, to the front door! Photo below shows the run from the rear.
Here's the run towards the back, including the stair-case knock-out.
Our rear tap, all nicely cemented in, and our pool shower too (for later implementation)
here's the run to the alfresco area, and another pic from the front.
