Sunday 18 March 2018 – PCI Cancelled

So PCI has been cancelled. Mr W and I went to the house on Friday to check the readiness and it was a big fat fail. We couldn't get in, but could see that the pantry shelves still weren't in (it's been 6 weeks) and there are still scratches on the stacker, which we told…

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 24 November 2017 – Waiting for Fixing

This is me waiting for fixing stage to start... The latest we have heard is that it will be complete by 1 December. But I'm a bit miffed that our Bentley neighbours, who have been tracking behind us, already have their front door door on (part of fixing stage). It's not as though there is…

Funny thing happened today... we got an email from our CSA advising us that "as they put our job on hold contract day claim would be made from 16th May - 3rd July (53 days)".  That's 7 weeks, so 49 days, but anyway, that would give them another 7 weeks to build our house because…

Sooo... where were we?   After much 'discussion' and back and forth conversations with our builder and the Power Authority, and the electrical inspector offering us 'suggestions', we should be back on track.  Last week all parties have agreed to have the meter box relocated at the below position (after 5 long weeks).     It's…

More of the same... Nothing.   It's been 4 weeks since the site was cut and there's other lots around ours that were cut in the same week and those houses have been framed, wrapped and roofed.   An update on the meter box... it took the Ops Manager 3 weeks to contact the Power…

Do I speak English?  I don't know what part of "Please request an exemption from Powercor", the builder doesn't understand.   I spoke to the Ops Manager again this afternoon.  He said that the meter box on the plans wasn't to scale and it wouldn't protrude as much as shown on the plans we fiddled…

Monday 29 May 2017

I didn't get to call my SS today for my weekly update.  Instead, I received a response from an email I sent to the Ops Manager last night which advised that our SS was on leave for approximately 2 weeks.  We have an interim SS, who once again, we haven't been given any contact details…

Sunday 28 May 2017

Long time, no post!  That's because NUH-THING has happened! I did however hear from the Ops Manager during the week about the meter box.  He called the Power Authority who advised him to contact his underground electrical contractor and ask him to ask his inspector what the process is.  I have no idea what exactly…
