The issues keep being found... Caulking full of grout and screed, damaged window frames that Southern Star have tried to cover up, caulking that isn't complete...

Handover happened at about 2, and the boundary fence was completed about 4, so the neighbours can let their dog out again ...

Pics from my phone off the fencing thus far. This side should be finished today...
