Wednesday 18 October 2017 – Still at Pre-Plaster

Despite Bentley pushing to install plaster on Monday, 16th, it still hasn't started yet.   It seems our SS has spent a bit of time there this week finishing up on the frame defects.  He reworked the fridge cavity and the recess for the shelving.  Bentley has agreed to fix item 18 of the inspection…

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…

Thursday 21 September 2017 – Pause

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…

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…
