Wednesday 14 February 2018 – Some dates!

After last week's update from our CSA, and being told that she was still waiting on a completion date from our SS, a line we have been told for ages, I got a bit cranky and I shot off an email to her on Monday morning that essentially said that we've sat around waiting for…

Monday 29 January 2018 – More Nothing.

It's as though they are not even trying to finish our house before the contract is up. Last weeks update said that plumbing and electrical fit offs were being completed and we received another update today which said that fit offs were in progress but we went past today and they haven't even started. I…

Sunday 21 January 2018 – Carpet changes

On Friday, at 4:57pm, we received our weekly update email from our CSA which said that tiles had been completed, and plumbing and electrical fit offs were currently being completed.  We were also advised that since we chose our carpet, they have changed supplier, so we would need to attend their office to choose new…

Wednesday 25 October 2017 – Totally plastered!

We are totally plastered!  The cornice was done yesterday and the cutouts for the electrical (power points and light switches) have been done.   I was in a rush and didn't look too closely so I'm not sure if they've been back to sand it yet.   AND, in front of our garage... Although it…
