Sunday 17 September 2017 – Insulation

We sent the Pre-Plaster report to the builder yesterday and formally requested that all defects be fixed and that we have another inspection prior to plaster being installed.  This is going to set us back, but it's more important that the house is built properly.  We've also questioned the validity of the formal frame approval…

Wednesday 9 August 2017 – Gas problems
