Sorry for all the posts lately, we are due to pay for our frames but our lender want to sight the property before releasing funds. With the 3 public holidays,…

Who did you ask? I take it you declined?

I’m having second thoughts about the number of PowerPoints we have in our electrical plan. Has anyone successfully added any during construction?

Did they leave any behind for you as spares?

When did you raise this request? With your SS I assume? I’m wondering if we need to do this too as I’m pretty sure we will have staggered joins too.…

Sorry for the heavy posting of late: Does anyone have a good checklist for the pre-lining inspection? Or any tips as to what to look for? I obviously want to…

Thanks SejaeD and kks. So we will still need yearly inspections? As in, get a termite…

Yes it says “granite guard in lieu or standard” in our tender. So it is within the brick work? Thanks!
No firm date, cement and sand are on site, inspection…

Granite guard: can anyone explain to me how this will look and when it goes in? We have frames up (as much as possible without scaffolding) and brickies due when…

We are building the Ambassador with the Diplomat but changed it slightly with different cladding and rendering all over

Steaming ahead, Magnus! Is that the Diplomat facade? We are between frame and brick and the parapets look more imposing and taller than I expected.

Yes, that was this morning. Didn’t have a chance to go back this afternoon to see what progress has occurred. The only difference from Fri/Sat was the railing around the…

I’m a pessimist. I presume they are standard sizes so would you just replace And not have any issue with the surrounding render?

20 d20 dbecks81becks81 posted:
Building with Wisdom Homes

Really?!?!? That (to a layperson) seems ridiculous and not easily replaced in the future. Is this standard practice?

21 d21 dbecks81becks81 posted:

This is probably a stupid question but will this meter box be replaced or reinstalled onto the exterior of our facade later?

We had some blocking/supports added to our electrical variation, is this in excess of what is 'normally' there? Thanks for the heads up, I will check with our SS as…

Looks fantastic!!! Powering along!!
Out of interest, do they only waterproof certain areas of the bathroom? and not the whole room?

Having a PA in your tender doesn’t help you cost wise though does it? Our tender was about 150-200k off the final price. We factored in a lot of upgrades…
