Wednesday 6 December 2017 – Fixing/Waterproofing Inspection Report

Fixing Inspection today.  Mr W turned up and had a quick chat to the inspector about some of our concerns before leaving and letting him get on with his job.  Mr W was told that overall, the plaster job is pretty good.  There doesn't appear to have been much work done this week.   Now,…

Tuesday 5 December 2017 – Pre-Inspection Jitters

Inspection tomorrow and I'm feeling a bit anxious about it. I trust Darbecca completely but so far every time we get one of their inspection reports it shows so many defects and I get so angry at Bentley.  I'm expecting any blog post tomorrow to focus on the report, so I thought I'd share a…

Thursday 16 November 2017 – Cabinets done

All cabinetry is done.  And I love them even more now than I did when I first saw them.   All the doors and architrave and door hinges and stuff has also been delivered.   I has rained quite heavily all day and the alfresco downpipe is still unconnected.  There'a a helluva lotta water!  …

Thursday 2 November 2017 – Locked Out

We are locked out.  Dammit!  I've been sick for a few days and haven't been to check things out, but nothing visible has happened since my last post anyhow.  I assume the plaster has been sanded, it felt smooth in the garage, which doesn't yet have a door.   Our weekly update email from our…

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…

Monday 23 October 2017 – We got plastered!

The plasterers were there all day Saturday, doing our plaster, and all plasterboard is up.  Just the cornices to go.   Plaster spam...     And, more water running towards to the slab.     Don't know the timeline as to what is happening next.  Our SS hasn't contacted us for almost 3 weeks.  …

Friday 20 October 2017 – Getting Plastered!

We are getting plastered!  Plaster started today.  Crap photo alert, but the plasterers were there and this was the best I could do.  We will go tomorrow and hopefully get some better snaps.   I stopped by yesterday also, and there appears to have been a site clean, and they have backfilled around the house,…

Thursday 21 September 2017 – Pause

Bentley have responded to the pre-plaster inspection and have agreed to fix most things.  Their response was a bit longer and more detailed than their response to the frame inspection items, being "This will be rectified," and I really CBF'd copying them out here, but for the sake of documenting the process and making it…
