It's been almost 24 hours, it is definitely GREY. We were hoping it just needed to dry, and with recent temperatures in Sydney being over 30degrees, it is fair to say, the mortar repair is fairly dry. And it's still GREY! Second Practical Completion Inspection next Tuesday morning, we'll see what Clarendon has to say … Continue reading Off White vs Grey Mortar
To say that I have been trying to contain myself with buying Furniture and Appliances, would be an understatement. Firstly, we have absolutely nowhere to store them. Secondly, we have been trying to conserve finances until they are needed. So buying furniture has always been planned for when we have the house. That hasn't stopped … Continue reading We have a Bed!
It's 2018. Yay!! It was in 2016 when we first put money down on our Clarendon Home, building commenced in 2017, and here we are in 2018 and still NO home!! We don't feel very happy. Infact, we're deflated, disappointed, angry and today feeling incensed. Our house has sat idle for 3 weeks, construction teams … Continue reading Happy New Year!!
To say that I am pissed off about an SMS and an email reply I received today, to an email I sent our Site Supervisor, is an understatement. Basically denying a conversation we've had, is an outright furphy and I couldn't even reply to it, for fear of writing something I might regret. I have … Continue reading Not Happy Jan!!
Drove past the house on Saturday, on our way to Baseball, and noticed the Painters were on-site - so that was alittle exciting. The Sliding Doors were still sitting up against our back fence, so not sure how they haven't been completed given the Chippie apparently has finished everything. We stopped by yesterday morning after … Continue reading Update
You read right!! We have exposed Steel Reinforcement in our Concrete Slab to the Alfresco. It has now also Rusted! I may have set the cat amongst the pigeons this morning, with an email to our CSC at Clarendon, including our original Concrete Manager, outlining dates of email, SMS's and conversations about the fact the … Continue reading Concrete Cancer!
Got our call from Shane the Site Supervisor quite early today, as he said he had a handover with another house. I thought he sounded a bit flat, but he said all was ok. Told us that the Kitchen and Bathroom Benchtops did not get installed yesterday and would get done next Friday. I died … Continue reading Weekly Site Supervisor Update
Week started with a flurry of activity, but we've definitely noticed it die down as the week has ended. Hoping we'll be pleasantly surprised when we have our Walk through tomorrow morning, but some tell tale signs tell me otherwise. Not one trade there yesterday or today, from what we can tell - and we … Continue reading Today’s Update
I write this post with an awful feeling in the pit of my gut! I've had my wrist slapped a few times over the past 2 weeks for bothering the Site Supervisor, and been asked to just let him do his job!! And I've been trying so very hard to not let the small anomalies … Continue reading Boy oh boy…the Laundry!!
So much going on today, feels good! Noticed a flat bed truck in our driveway this morning, and a tradesman in the garage working with a drop-edge saw, so we can only assume that the Stairs are well and truly underway. There was also a Jet Wash Services ute parked out front, so once again … Continue reading Busy, busy, busy…
