Monday 26 March 2018 – We’ve got gas!

Hooray!  Never been so happy to see a gas meter.   I believe the Constriction Manager was on site today doing stuff.  We think it was he who buffed our stacker door and from what I can see, it seems to have come up well.  It doesn't look like he has done all of the…

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.…

Wednesday 21 March 2018 – Progress

We have seen some progress on site.   GAS:   That big hole in the front yard finally got some attention today. ... all for us!     Mr W & I made several phone calls yesterday including to Red Energy, Ausnet (the gas distributor) and Downer Plumbing (Ausnet's contractor).  No one seemed to know…

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…

Tuesday 13 March 2018 – PCI Booked

We received an email from our SS this afternoon advising that he was ready to book PCI for Monday 19 March at 10am.  We haven't received the Notice of Completion, or Final Claim, or Occupancy Permit as per the Contract, but in the interest of moving forward, we have booked an inspection with Darbecca.  The…

Wednesday 7 March 2018 – $60 a day

I don't even know what's going on right now.  A dude came to install the pantry shelving, but he forgot the bottom shelf.  You'd think he'd know how to read the plans.  Our 4 year old could see that there are 4 shelves there.   Mr W tried calling the SS on Monday, and left…

Saturday 26 August 2017 – Photos

Nothing to report, but my husband stopped by this morning and took these photos.   The front of the house.  All the timber boards have had bolts put in the corners.   The gas line (yellow) has been moved.   Our finished roof and our solar panel for the hot water.   Doesn't look like…

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…
