Friday 23 March 2018 – Notice of Completion

Mains line has been rectified.  For the record, it was Downer who tidied up the front yard and they have since been back and laid top soil over the nature strip.   Since my last post about the gas mains line being rectified, I noticed yesterday that we do in fact have a service line.…

Thursday 22 February 2018 – Getting busy

Things are firing along and it seems we've had a few different tradies there the last tow days.   The house is "clean".  Painters were there finishing up a few things, the new skirting in the garage was painted.  The front door was being stained and the front pillar had been re-rendered ready to be…

Friday 16 February 2018 – VENT!

  Fuck I'm pissed off!  Bentley are doing my head in!  We have been trying to arrange a walk through with our SS for 3 days.  Under the contract we are entitled to walk throughs and they cannot deny us one.  We've had 1 walk through for the whole build, so it's not as though…

Friday 16 February 2018 – New CSA?

Once again we don't know who our CSA is.  Mr W called Bentley's office this morning, chasing up a time to meet with our SS for a pre-PCI walkthrough and was told that our CSA is "no longer with the company."  We last heard from her on Wednesday and she didn't mention anything.  I think…

Friday 13 October 2017 – Defect Update

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions and a lot of back and forth of emails between us and the builder.  I have calmed down, mostly.   So the reinspection report.  There were still a few items affecting the frame that hadn't been done.  They were the sticking points for us as once…

Wednesday 6 September 2017 – Almost bricked

I didn't believe what our CSA told us about the bricklayers doing our bricks for the next 2 weeks, so I went out to our build late morning yesterday in hope of speaking with brickies.  They were there and I asked them when they expected to finish.  He said 1-2 days.  Maybe our CSA meant…

Tuesday 29 August 2017 – Pre-bricks

Assuming the bricklayers were there today getting ready to lay bricks tomorrow.   As you can see there aren't any temporary downpipes.  Our SS told me that they don't do it.  Both our Plans and the Building Permit stipulate that we need to have them, so we emailed our SS, CSA and the Ops Manager…

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…
