Another great post Charly, thanks for that!
$4k in electrical for a 2 story house seems a ridiculously low estimate by your SC, our SC put in $5k plus…

PD had a free colourbond promotion on when we were buying which was handy as it was what my wife wanted anyway. Because we're in a BAL area we…

Would you recommend getting the booklet Nikil? I'm assuming it's the Guide to PCI one you are referring to?

Porter Davis - Madison 40

We got a roughly 10% discount if we got more than one stage inspected, nothing more than that though.

It looks lower than I would like personally, but it's probably about right compared to the plans if that's what you are asking?

That's a fair few defects and some of them sound pretty big. Why didn't the SS get the slab sorted after that stage rather than waiting till you've had the…

Did PD make you put the final payment into a trust account from the offset? We're paying cash as well and they made us do that, although admittedly the…

Looks good WGB!
Do Darbecca do an inspection of if everything is where it is supposed to be etc for PCI, or are they mostly just checking the structural stuff?

The niche is standard in all the bathrooms.
ProWe got charged for it, that was almost a year ago though.

Our waterproofing is now done, tiling starts tomorrow. Our SS does the waterproofing after fixing so we couldn't get the inspection done as part of the fixing inspection with Darbecca…

Call reception and ask to be connected to your BC's or SS's supervisor?

16 d16 dHurrowHurrow posted:

That's just the auto reply, they may actually send a proper response when they actually read it. You could always send it to your BC and SS.

We've been using Darbecca, been very happy with their work.

That's disgraceful. I hope you're insisting that they replace all the plaster for that area.

I think if it gets raised high enough it tends to get a decent response, but different people get different outcomes. Which is part of what's so frustrating about…

Getting there Nikil! You seem to have pretty much the same facade (Riva?) as us, although on a different floor plan I guess.

Great news! How long does it normally take from PCI to actually moving in?
