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…

Friday 4 August 2017 – Still at framing

The slackers have done nothing all week.  The roof trusses are just sitting there waiting to go up.   When I spoke to the SS on Monday, he said that he was expecting to have his inspector inspect the frame late this week, and would let me know so I could book Darbecca, but I…

Sunday 23 July 2017 – Our slab

Thursday 18 May 2017

Went back to the site today to see if anything else had happened.  The plumber had pulled up moments before me - he said he was there to do the water meter and the garden taps. And I noticed that we now had a meter box - pretty excited to see that.  I was kinda…
