Never having hired one before, I have no idea if this is good progress or not. My gut feeling is he's not the quickest.
After Day 1 (inc moving tools onto site) and I guess a lot of faffing with squaring and leveling the first course.
After Day 2
I was expecting it to take a week, but looking at two or more at this rate, unless he suddenly speeds up when doing the blockwork.
As to why the first two course are bricks, he said they're easier to get level than the heavy blocks. The actual plan is three sides blocks and front in bricks.
Anyway, is this good / bad / indifferent progress?
