So...this month has been extremely frustrating in terms of our build - and no clue as to why. All we have had done is the roof, which started last month and still hasn't been completed.
Tomorrow we are supposed to be having the eaves done and fireplace box put in, but they haven't even started the roof tiling for the lower floor yet - which is such a small surface area in comparison to the main roof. We've been waiting weeks to see it finish.
We are really not happy about the bricking either. We've been taking closer looks and it's very uneven, holes in the mortar, chipped bricks, inconsistent spacing - you name it, we've got it. And that dislodged roof tile - who knows when they will fix that. If we try to talk to our SS about it, he makes us feel almost like we have no idea what we are talking about. I'm waiting for our next onsite meeting to go through these issues in person and point out specific areas where these problems are.
So we've been updated with the following schedule, lets see how that goes:
28th Apr: Electrical rough-in, incl. speaker wiring
1st May: Gyprock installation ETA 10 days
16th: Stairs and fit out (?)
23rd: Kitchen fit out
Meanwhile, our SS left us some spray paint and we decided to mark out all the places we want our frame 'blocked' so that we can hang heavy objects such as TVs. We decided to do the fireplace (so we don't drill into the flue by accident!), leisure room, upper lounge and main bedroom. Now that was a fun exercise!
PS I think they've sent out all their tradesmen to work on their new display homes in Gregory Hill, that's why I we've seen absolutely nobody on site each time we've been there during the day over the past few weeks!
