Friday 18 August 2017 – Slow week

Very slow week here.  All that has happened is the installation of the fascia and guttering, the delivery of roof tiles and the installation of the roof railing.   Quiet with with regards to communication from the builder also, until I got the weekly update from our CSA which said that roofing will be done…

Thursday 17 August 2017 – Guttering & Fascia

I hadn't been to site since Monday, but I drove by today and someone was packing up from installing the guttering and fascia.  I couldn't take many photos because I didn't want to take photos of him, or his car, but it wraps right the way around the house.  You get the idea.  The colour…

Friday 11 August 2017 – Oops!

So... the generator.  We received an email at 5pm this afternoon advising that as there isn't any power connected, we'll need a generator.  Mr W saw the email first and when he realised that we were up for $150 a day for generator hire, he wasn't happy.  I decided to call the Power Authority to…

Wednesday 9 August 2017 – Gas problems

Having some gas problems.  I got a phone call from our SS late yesterday and once again, the plans don't comply with regulations, and the gas meter location on the plans is too close to the HWS.  Given that there is a slab for the HWS, it's easier to move the gas meter than the…

Sunday 6 August 2017 – Site visit

Family day out was to visit our new house - again.   My husband and I only get a chance to go there together on the weekends, and it was great to walk around inside our house together for the first time.  It's been a little hard to picture the layout as we are building…

Friday 4 August 2017 – New CSA

Whilst I was writing my last post, an email came through from our new CSA.  Didn't know we were getting a new one.  Our old CSA called me on Wednesday asking what colour we wanted some custom cabinetry and didn't mention anything.   Anyhow, frame is due to be completed early next week, and roof…

Friday 4 August 2017 – Still at framing

The slackers have done nothing all week.  The roof trusses are just sitting there waiting to go up.   When I spoke to the SS on Monday, he said that he was expecting to have his inspector inspect the frame late this week, and would let me know so I could book Darbecca, but I…

Monday 31 July 2017 – Frames

It appears that the storm didn't cause too much damage.  A few things needed to be replaced, but they got on with it and they worked like horses today.  I can't believe how much they got done today.   I'm amazed!   The roof trusses have been delivered and it looks like all the frames…
